Kingspan’s pre-engineered computerized design technology provides the most cost-effective system for your project.

The Clearspan concept:

  • The Clearspan concept eliminates structural horizontal bracing or crossbeam supports that are required for some structural designs.
  • Undesirable crossbeam bracing introduces limitations such as interference with traffic under the canopy, creating a roosting area for birds and more.
  • The Clearspan concept, with no horizontal crossbeams, provides an open and modern canopy design with unequaled architectural appeal.
  • Eliminate problems inherent in metal walkway covers – dark and unpleasant industrial appearance, “closed-In” feeling and maintenance requirements.

The architects wanted a completely different look to the entry at this new assisted living center. They designed two separate canopies for the entry.
