Greenwich awning installed at Pizza Express container outlet

22 Aug 2016

We do a lot of work for Pizza Express but this job was rather special. The client uses a container style outlet as a temporary shelter at Fairs, Exhibitions and other special events. Our challenge was to get a reasonable horizontal extension which would offer sufficient cover but we only had with an extremely limited fixing height to work with.

Fortunately our Greenwich pivot awning is available with sliding arms which enables us to conveniently lift the arm up the slide after the cover has been extended to give an adequate head clearance.

The awning was powder coated in our Riverside factory to match the fabric cover which was manufactured in black  to compliment the corporate Pizza express livery.

Pizza Express food can be traced back to their founder, Peter Boizot and his love affair with Italy. Unhappy with the pizzas in London, he shipped over an authentic oven, knocked down a wall to squeeze it in, and opened the very first restaurant on Wardour Street. London. Since then Pizza Express have been renowned for their high quality and excellent value for money
