Product Announcement from Parkline, Inc.
We offer simple canopies for applications such as covered walkways and single equipment covers. Our canopies are frequently used as gas equipment shelters and oil equipment shelters. We also manufacture large covered walkways for retail use, such as fuel and convenience stores. We also provide weather cover for physical education activities at elementary and middle schools.
The canopy/covered walkway system can be supplied in two distinctive designs. First is a system in which the structural framing is below the panels, the second system framing is above. The panel support framing will be nominal 14 or 12 gauge cold formed galvanized members or hot rolled prime painted members with prime painted structural tube columns. Panels shall be a maximum 16" with interlocking side ribs. The interlocking ribs shall be a minimum 3" high and turned upward.
Canopy panels, fluted or flush, shall be a nominal 24 gauge galvanized steel conforming to ASTM A653 specifications with the galvanized coating conforming to G90 standards. Minimum yield strength of panel material shall be 50,000 psi for flush panels and 40,000 psi for fluted panels. The finish surface of the panel shall receive factory, roller applied, paint coats having a combined coating thickness of .8 to 1.2 mils of dry film thickness of white siliconized polyester formulation. Flush panels are also available in zinc/aluminum coated steel.
Depending on design, top mounted panels shall be secured to the supporting structure with corrosion resistant fasteners with weather tight washers where exposed to the elements. Under hung panels are attached with 3/8" corrosion resistant nuts and bolts. Parkline canopies and walkways are designed by registered professional engineers in accordance with the applicable sections of the latest edition of the AISC "Specification for Structural Steel Buildings" and the AISI "Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members".
