Covered Walkways

For distances long and short, every journey is made better with a covered walkway. At busy sites, and those which attract crowds of people and are at risk of ‘bottleneck’ situations, a walkway canopy can bring order and guidance. Our designers can incorporate colour schemes to map out routes for pedestrians and match the structure to existing buildings, complementing the landscape.

With years of experience in the design, manufacture and installation of shelters, canopies and shades, Broxap can also offer customised features. This can include lighting and branding details. A covered walkway can help to enhance security by ensuring people stick to a dedicated course, and act as an aid to direction such as at busy transport interchanges.

For workplaces, a sheltered walkway can keep visitors and staff safe and dry as they travel between buildings for meetings and appointments. They are a reliable way to keep the flow of movement steady and continuous, while unifying elements of a single site. At schools, colleges and universities, students can stay on the right track with a covered walkway.

We can build solutions that traverse awkward spaces, paving a simple, easy and safe way forward, ensuring the wellbeing of users. Our bespoke design experts can create walkways for specific locations and needs, with manufacturing taking place at our UK workshop. From the contemporary to the traditional, every product offers durability and performance. Materials range from natural timber to galvanised steel for ultimate structure strength, with glazed, polycarbonate or tensile fabric roofing options.

These materials not only offer longevity - they can also be applied to bring about a desired effect, such as using rainbow coloured cladding to create a sensory experience for children. Side panels can also be incorporated into our products, which benefit from the flexibility of modular design to enable future extensions.

“Broxap provided a fantastic solution to our outdoor areas, the canopy and walkway are practical and look amazing. The fact they were completed during term time within three weeks was a fantastic feat.

The installation team worked hand in hand with our Site Manager to ensure noise levels were minimal and not disruptive to pupils’ lessons.”

Mrs Tina Lambert, School Business Manager


"I am writing to pass on my thanks to your site installation team of Mark Brown and Robert Price for their hard working and collaborative attitude in installing the walkway whilst maintaining access to the Discharge Hub and without disrupting other adjacent areas. They were a pleasure to work with and are a credit to Broxap.

The walkway itself has been gratefully received by the Hospital staff in the recent heavy rain.

We look forward to working with you again soon."

James Wright - Royal United Hosiptals Bath NHS Foundation Trust
