Weinor Pergotex with LED Lighting at Orpington College
We recently installed a Weinor Pergotex at Orpington College in London. This retractable roof canopy was desired to create an outdoor dining area for the college cafeteria, which is positioned adjacent to the space. The structure stands at 12000mm x 4000mm, with w50 trapeziums fitted on both sides to square it off. This ensures they can then be closed off if needed at a later date.
By choosing this particular canopy, the outdoor space has year-round versatility, suitable for all weather conditions. The retractable roof panels and blinds are suited to protecting occupants from both rain and wind, but can be retracted if needed in sunnier periods to make the most of the English sun. The blinds themselves are remote operated, just like the roof itself.
This particular installation also features built in LED lighting into the structure, creating a stunning visual effect later into the evening, and which ensures the area can be utilised both day and night. Another feature is the built-in drainage system, in the guttering and supports. This system is designed to channel rainwater neatly, rather than have water draining off the canopy at any point, and avoids creating a splash, carefully channeling water away from anyone underneath or at the edges.
This space is the perfect location for Orpington College students and tutors alike to take a break from studies, and enjoy the outdoor canopy that we have installed. Able to sit outside, and eat, drink or simply socialise without fear of either being caught by the sun or getting wet in the rain, students are now able to take full advantage of a previously under-utilised space within this fantastic college.
