Fabric covered canopies – manufacturing
Industrial canopies are manufactured with strong and durable galvanized steel and PVC fabric.
The steel material is used for the supporting structure and for the guide rails, ensuring safety.
When the canopies are placed next to a preexisting building, the structure is provided with a connector that links pipes and bends for gutters in order to allow the water flow without compromising the integrity of the temporary building.
The standard form of the industrial canopies includes a gable roof, but also the single slope roof version is available with a coverage profile.
Moreover, the customer can select the opening/closing mechanism that perfectly meets the requirements. More precisely, there are different closing methods:
- Through fixed PVC fabric panels
- Through manual sliding curtains
- Through roll-up doors
- Through fold-up doors
Pvc canopies – application areas
These sliding industrial canopies turn out to be helpful for several purposes in many fields, including industrial, shipbuilding, agriculture and commercial sectors. Besides these primary activities, also sports clubs can take advantage of PVC canopies, requiring a temporary sheltered space for sports competitions.
Sliding canopies are helpful to:
- Expand the sheltered space. In this particular case, the canopy can be installed away from the main building as an additional element or next to the building to expand a specific department;
- Protect delivery vehicles or working equipment;
- Protect the raw materials or the incoming goods before being processed;
- Separate the waste generated during the production process from other garbage, which may prove to be harmful to health;
- Maintenance works. In such cases, the canopy could be closed laterally working as a workshop;
- Protect animals and crops in agriculture and farming;
- Build an exhibition stand for commercial events and trade fairs;
Shelter operators who work in the warehouse during the loading and unloading activities. In this case, the canopy functions as a protection from harsh weather conditions.
