Traditional Canopies

Traditional canopies from Broxap are designed to celebrate the built heritage and conserve the cultural identity of their surroundings. Each product has a classic, timeless feel, and is manufactured using appropriate techniques and materials that will ensure the structure continues to be valued as an asset.

Traditional canopy designs vary in shape and size, from barrel vault and duo pitch roof styles, to the inclusion of decorative columns and beams and ornate detailing. Built from hard-wearing, long-lasting materials to a durable, high-quality standard, traditional canopies are designed, manufactured and installed to stand the test of time.

Traditional canopies are particularly suited to public places where a structure of this kind can fit into existing surroundings. At upmarket Scottish country clothing specialist The House of Bruar, a canopy of traditional design was essential for the rural Perthshire site. The resulting multi-tiered glazed colonnade and portico reflected the luxury style and premium branding of the independent retailer. The project also included a large multi-vaulted covered area to accommodate al fresco dining. It incorporated cast aluminium columns and beams and decorative finishes in a heritage theme.

The Market Canopy from Broxap, and also the Harrogate Canopy, feature highly decorative spandrels and infill panels and beams to reflect tried and tested period styles and proportions.

Traditional canopies tend to follow well-known forms and include details such as finials but can be adapted to suit the needs of the environment and purpose. These designs can be incorporated into covered walkways, bus shelters or entrance points and the familiarity of the shapes are particularly welcoming and inviting.

At Broxap, our professional design and build team works thoughtfully to bring traditional style to modern-day settings. As well as our standard ranges, our engineers can create completely new, bespoke designs for a huge variety of buildings and applications.

"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.
