Do you have reception staff that are worried about things falling on them from the open stair case above their working area?

As part of completion works to the recently refurbished library entrance at Reading University, we installed this very functional canopy to provide protection for the staff working under these high traffic stairs.

Designed to be visually as simple as possible, we utilised the existing structure at all fixing locations to allow the frame to be bolted on - with little to no noise or dust - as the structure was installed while the library was operational.

A twin skin of fabric provided the protection, secured to a bespoke frame and connection system.  

A gutter detail to the bottom edge allows the collected dust and debris to easily be vacuumed from the upper level.
