Covered Walkways




In the UK, keeping people safe from the weather is a continuous challenge. And that’s where our solution comes in – a customised covered walkway. Covered Walkway links different buildings and areas, enabling staff, patients, and visitors to move comfortably all year round. The images below display budget-friendly wall-mounted and freestanding covered walkway options.

At Ace Shelters, we specialise in designing, engineering, and installing lightweight covered walkways. Our lightweight structures are the ideal choice for covered walkways, thanks to the minimal support required by the durable, lightweight material we use. This allows us to design and build stunning, creative tensile structures that were once thought impossible.

Get in touch with us to learn more about how our lightweight covered walkways can help you. Alternatively, call to speak with one of our experienced designers and engineers to get started.


Covered walkways are typically a shelter above your property or office entrance.

Safe and convenient pathways created by covered walkways can connect buildings and reduce health and safety hazards, especially in heavily populated areas like educational institutions.

Slips and falls are more likely to occur during rainy weather as people move between buildings. This risk is even more significant when surfaces freeze over in colder months on uncovered walkways. Congestion in school hallways during busy times can lead to delays and added supervision. With the ongoing pandemic, many schools have implemented social distancing measures, which necessitate using all available walking routes to avoid overcrowding.

Covered Walkways add style

Covered walkways can be customised just as you want them. Our bespoke solutions can be designed completely to suit your imagination and style. So, when you order your covered walkways from ACE Shelters, you can rest assured that you will be satisfied with your investment.

Optimise Drop-Off Areas

Enhancing a location’s charm is a good way to draw more tourists. Customers can enjoy waiting by installing a shade system in the parking lot. This and other straightforward upgrades can make the facility more inviting, ultimately leading to improved business growth.

Lower Maintenance Costs

Property owners incur high costs for routine maintenance because buildings with better accessibility are more likely to experience wear and tear. Keeping the property in top shape can make it more desirable to visitors visually, which can increase business. Even while shade systems need to be maintained, the expenses are much lower than those for rebuilds and repairs.
