What Are Covered Walkways Made From?

Covered walkways are the perfect versatile solution for coverage in a range of circumstances. From use in schools as a way to provide covered walkways between buildings to additions to car parks along pathways into a supermarket, there are many different uses for covered walkways. With so many different purposes, it’s no surprise that there are several different options available on the market. But when it comes to picking a walkway, what exactly are covered walkways from Ace Shelters made from?

The materials

As one of the most hard-wearing and practical materials available, without inflating the cost of the structure, high-grade aluminium is the material we utilise in all our covered walkway ranges. Versatile, functional and long-lasting against corrosion and rust, this solution is suitable for all weathers. Because of its natural coating, made up of aluminium oxide, covered walkways made of high-grade aluminium can undoubtedly stand the test of time and look brand new from the moment they’re installed to years later if maintained correctly.

Colour and extras

One of the most significant benefits of aluminium is its suitability for customisation. Coloured with a powder coating in BS or RAL colours, it’s easy to pick a shade that’s ideally suited to your brand colours, or to match existing external décor or structures in the outside area of a property. Glazing also offers further choice to those considering investing in covered walkways, with our range including options for toughened safety glass, UV stable polycarbonate and vandal-resistant steel sheets, all of which add an extra layer of protection.

Structural considerations

Generally offered in either a barrel or pitched roof shape, to effectively direct rainwater, each covered walkway is constructed from the same high-quality materials and is built to last in the long-term. Popular for public walkways, the perfect addition to a school and the ideal source of cover in car parks and transport hubs, covered walkways continue to be a popular way to keep the weather out, and allow people to get where they are going quickly, easily and conveniently.
