Polycarbonate Canopies Provide Shelter for the New Hampden Heights School.
Polycarbonate canopies installation has begun at the Hampden Heights Elementary school near the intersection of Havana Street and Girard Avenue in the 11.5-acre Hampden Heights Open Space that was acquired by Denver Public Schools in a controversial land swap with the city.
The school is scheduled to be open at the Early Childhood Education level in time for the 2015-16 school year and will eventually hold more than 500 students.

- Translucent, polycarbonate canopies avoid problems inherent in metal canopies – a dark and unpleasant industrial appearance, a “closed-in” feeling and constant maintenance requirements. When a metal canopy is next to a building, it darkens adjacent windows or doorways. CPI Daylighting’s translucent canopy designs let the light in. The canopies and walkway systems are attractive and affordable alternatives to the high cost and safety concerns associated with glass, acrylic and fiberglass canopy systems.
- Healthy, natural daylight in the space with soft translucent light and accurate color rendition.
- No required maintenance or re-coating costs—individual exterior panels are easily replaced.
