Home > Companies > Able Canopies Ltd > Orwell Wall Mounted Entrance/ Walkway Canopy

Stylish entrance/ walkway canopy with smooth, slightly curved design that provides effective cover from the weather. The Orwell has an unlimited length (minimum of 1.4 m) and a projection of between 0.8 - 2.5m which makes it perfect for covering large entrances and creating shade above multiple windows. It is also ideal for creating shelter above outside stairways as it can be supplied with varying heights that match the incline of the stairs.

As this cost-effective entrance canopy is cantilevered and has no canopy posts, it is ideal for covering busy environments such as schools, shops, leisure centres and hospitals.
