CK Direct were commissioned to supply and fit the complete island canopy ventilation system at Eastleigh College, Hampshire.

What made this project different is that the canopy was housed in a wooden building where supporting beams would not take the full 400kg weight of the canopy.

Installation also included a Gas Interlock System, Supply Air and SDU2R (Service Distribution Unit).
CK Direct designed a virtually self-supporting canopy system by use of the Service Distribution Unit acting as a supporting framework, with heavy duty box section and fixings running through the centre of the upright, and a bespoke framework above the canopy to bolt it all together.

Installation took just under 5 days from planning to completion with very pleasing results.
