These classic hypar canopies were installed for Britannia to solve a very common problem - too much sun in an atrium.

The canopies (3.5m x 3.5m used here), which are constructed from rolled steel section and PVC coated glass fabric, were strategically positioned (as shown on the 3D model) to cut down on the direct sun light in a number of areas within the atrium.

The canopies themselves can be positioned as required, simply being hung from a single drop cable. A clear fishing line is then added to prevent them from moving in any internal breeze when doors are opened within the space.

Standard sizes are 1.5m x 1.5m up to 3.5m x 3.5m. Colours are available upon request.
