Industrial canopies-why does everyone want one?

Industrial canopies – we have noticed a real trend over the past year with more and more Aganto customers hiring or buying industrial canopies for loading and unloading operations.

This increasing need for industrial canopies is often due to the ongoing tightening of regulations and customer demand to prevent wet damage from loading and unloading in the open.

Sometimes even the smallest bit of damp on packaging can lead to a whole pallet being scrapped. Nobody can afford this kind of waste and loss but the ongoing affects of wet damage – insurance claims, higher premiums, loss of customer – can have significant impact on the ongoing success of a business.

The Aganto industrial canopies have the same unique installation method as our other temporary buildings – they anchor down to existing level hard standing and don’t require any ground works. By their very nature industrial canopies from Aganto don’t require doors or insulated cladding on the walls or roof. This keeps cost low and benefit high.

In the past few months Aganto have worked on two key industrial canopy projects. Due to increasing regulations and customer demand Medica Packaging have installed a canopy at their Crewe site for loading and unloading purposes. In addition, one of the UKs leading logistics companies is also benefiting from an Aganto canopy building which is being used for groupage purposes and has the added advantage of being linked to an existing structure.

Both of these industrial canopy solutions are in line with ongoing changes in legislation to ensure goods and employees are kept dry during loading and unloading activities, avoiding wet damage, insurance claims, loss of customer and accidents.
