Duopitch Canopies

Duopitch Canopy designs are a great solution for many outdoor areas but are particularly useful in providing shelter across a large expanse. This is why Duopitch Canopies are perfect for the creation of outdoor dining areas or classrooms for schools, for example.

The simple ‘up and over’ style can blend seamlessly with any surrounding pitched roof of nearby buildings, making it a good choice for signposting entrance points as well. In addition to its impressive appearance, the Duopitch Canopy offers protection from the weather, effective functionality and a durability that results in a cost-effective, long-life structure.

Duopitch canopies can be part wall mounted or freestanding, and are a great solution for both bus and cycle shelters, whether made from timber or metal. At Broxap, our designs include classic, traditional canopies such as the Cheshire Timber Cycle Shelter and the Durham Bus Shelter. The angles and lines of the geometric shapes bring balance and order to a space, almost defining its use and complementing the surrounding environment.

The Duopitch Canopy can also lend itself to more unique, statement constructions, such as the modern Tadcaster Entrance Canopy which boasts chunky glulam columns, rafters and purlins, to become the focal point of any building. The use of material can also play an important role in the aesthetics of this design. For example, the combination of aluminium and toughened glass results in the elegant Llanberis Canopy, or the choice of a steel framework for urban locations can give a pleasing, clean look. And in every case, Broxap remains committed to delivering high quality, long-life products.


As well as our standard Duopitch Canopies, created for various uses and locations, Broxap’s professional design and build teams can engineer a high-quality bespoke solution.
This can take into account specific site considerations, architectural features, layout and form as well as function.

Testimonials

"The quality of service and installation was second to none"

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, your design team and your installation team for their hard work and performance at Richmond Primary School in Hinckley.

As you know the design concept for the canopies was particularly difficult to achieve and the finished product is an important feature of the school.

Your assistance and advice to Value Engineer the finished design was crucial and fundamental in their inclusion in the finished scheme.  Throughout the procurement and design processes the open communication links has resulted in a product that not only looks great but is one that the end user is thrilled with.

The finished product belies the effort required, particularly when considering the sequencing, access and programme difficulties which proved a challenge for all of us.  The quality of service and installation was second to none.
