Zinc Canopy with Internal Gutter
Dunston Hall Hotel in Norfolk
Quite often, we are approached by customers for something a little different. A recent example of this was when we were contacted by staff at the listed Dunston Hall Hotel in Norfolk. They were planning a refurbishment at the hotel and gave us the images below and details from their designers showing the first phase of the project.
As you can see, the architects supplied very comprehensive drawings for their designs. Their criterion was for a zinc canopy with a purpose made internal square matching gutter. The gutter would need to discharge at either end of the canopy and the canopy would be finished with a matching pair of powder-coated steel brackets, as per the photo above.
We made a rough mock-up to give the architects an idea of what the canopy would look like once installed.
The customer and the architects both liked the design and asked us to proceed.
It’s easy to draw or sketch a picture. However putting an idea into action is not always as easy.
Once clad with Quartz zinc the canopy was ready to be installed. Our canopies come fully assembled and are easy to fit by a competent person. On this occasion, the client opted for us to install rather than their builder.
Once the setting out was complete, holes were drilled ready to receive the resin and studs. Just to remind you, it is essential that all the dust is removed from the holes prior to the application of the resin.
