Urban Design Retail Glass Canopies

One of the UK's leading specialists in the installation of glass canopies and roofing, Urban Design & Developments, was tasked to provide a series of curved feature entrance canopies for a prestigious new retail development. The canopies were formed using a steel frame of CHS members and a glazed roof area of flat faceted safety glass panels that were manufactured and supplied by t4 design.

At all stages during production, the Mansfield-based team worked rigidly to the precise specifications and measurements that were provided by Urban Design, so that the toughened glass panels would lay perfectly on the curve of the rolled roof members.

Integral to the design of the structures were the support columns that doubled as sign frames, to which each tenant would add their own logo and advertising boards. Gutters and down pipes were provided to each end of the canopies and finally, all steelwork was fully decorated using a heavy-duty exterior-grade paint system.

Its experience in the construction sector means that the creation of glass panels for canopies, roofs, shelters, porches and other structural items for residential and commercial applications is now a staple of t4 design's product portfolio.
