The main feature of a Covered Walkway is the weather protection it offers for students, teachers or staff of your facility to get from A to B along the school walkways/footpaths without getting their feet wet. Less muddy classroom floors and improved morale at the school are both real possibilities with your walkways covered. After all, it is a lot easier to walk between classrooms when it’s raining if you've got a roof over your head all the way!
With options available of curved, gable or skillion roof types, Asset Building Systems can give you everything you need to go along with your walkway, including skylights, lighting under the walkway roof, storm-water connection and concreting the path under the walkway roof.
Things to consider
There is a lot of consideration that goes into a walkway project.
One thing to watch out for when you’re considering a walkway project, especially at schools, is emergency access. Often a quadrangle is going to be blocked in by the roof, so it’s important to lift the roof height at a spot which allows easy access for emergency vehicles. Ask Asset Building’s friendly staff about this and any other requirements, they’re more than happy to help!
With 8 years’ experience working at public facilities, and building expertise spanning over 25 years, Asset Building Systems is the solution provider for your walkway needs. We offer free on-site design consultation to ensure the walkway design suits your needs.
