Rainclear launches new door canopies range

Rainclear Systems, the UK’s leading stockist and online retailer of metal rainwater systems has added a brand-new range of door canopies, and side panels, to its website.

“These canopies are produced to the highest specifications using high-quality aluminium and stainless steel and environmentally friendly colours for the powder coating process. We’ve chosen to stock the ever-popular RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey, but other RAL colours are available, predicably with a surcharge and a longer delivery time of approx. 4- 6weeks. But if you’re trying to build or develop something really unique, this may well be the right option for you” 

Anthony Hitchman - MD at Rainclear Systems.

The engineering team’s work on the quayside site of the former Ballantine Whisky Distillery involved significant and complex challenges, including removing old foundations and slipways from the site’s original use in the 18th and 19th centuries as a shipyard.  Upgrades to the quay walls and dry dock revetments were also undertaken.
