No one likes to be rained on while waiting to enter the VIP area at Wimbledon - so a rain protection canopy is the answer!

Designed to be demountable, this component structure can be unbolted from the ground and wheeled away from the stairway - to a safe area adjacent - where it can be dismantled safely. 

A tough PVC coated polyester skin, fixed to a aluminium and steel frame hugs the stair area, preventing driving rain falling onto queuing guests, as they walk up the stairs.

For such structures we engineer them for temporary use - in this case up to a 35mph wind speed. Beyond this speed, the canopy skin is removed so as not to excessively load the floor fixings and frame.
