Walkways, covers and ramps

Covered walkways and other prefabricated structures

As leaders in the field of prefabricated, relocatable and lightweight buildings, CopriSystems has been designing, supplying and installing structures tailored to clients' needs for 25 years.

As well as our range of large domes, we can provide smaller shelters for covering walkways, ramps and entrances - all featuring the benefits of off-site construction.

These are stylish tensile structures that look fabulous in retail areas. They also work well to connect buildings in places like schools, hospitals and transportation hubs and also work well as bus shelters and covered walkways through car parks. Indeed, the possibilities are endless!

The benefits of covered walkways and ramps

There's no doubt that your customers, employees and anyone else who visits your premises will appreciate the shelter that a prefabricated walkway cover provides - especially in the winter months when these structures provide a dry route into the building, along pavements and on stairs and ramps.

Dry customers are happy customers, and more likely to spend more time in your outlet if they don't have soggy feet and dripping coats. A covered walkway will help to shelter them from any inclement weather as they approach your outlet, plus it will reduce the amount of clean up you will need to worry about around the entrance.

Meanwhile, if part of your business requires working outside, covered ramps and walkways lead to better working conditions for employees and possibly reduce sickness or injury leave. These prefabricated structures will also help mitigate breaches in health and safety.

What's more, when the sun is shining, covered walkways and ramps will provide a bit of shade and their good looks can help to make a location look stylish and inviting.

Which prefabricated walkway should you choose?

Since they are tailor made, prefabricated structures such as ramp and walkway covers can be constructed in any length necessary and we offer a bespoke service to ensure that the finished product suits your exact requirements.

Depending on the location, aesthetic requirements, loadings and budget, you can choose from steel or aluminium sections, while glulam structures may also be an option if you prefer a warmer and more natural appearance.

Meanwhile, the tensile fabric is heavy-duty polyester with a strong PVC coating. It is resistant to abrasions and UV damage. What's more, it should maintain its practical properties and good looks for at least 20 years, giving you a long-lasting and reliable structure.

These prefabricated lightweight structures are available in a huge range of designs, including products that are mounted to existing walls or free-standing. You can also choose from monopitch or duopitch roofs, as well as barrel-vaults and curved designs to suit your preferences.

Whichever option you select, it will require minimum footings and all structures are quick to install, due to their off-site construction, helping to avoid any inconvenience to the business.

Off-site construction from CopriSystems

If you're looking for an attractive, effective and affordable way to cover a walkway or ramp, then the off-site construction options offered by CopriSystems could be the ideal choice.

All of our products are completely customisable, allowing you to specify the size and appearance to ensure the finished building is exactly how you want it.
