Ian Mackie, Plastics in Contruction Ltd Managing Director, takes up the story. “Having already spent much of my working life in the rooflight industry, I saw a major growth in the requirement for free-standing covered walkways and entrance canopies. My experience of working with UV protected solid and multiwall polycarbonate sheets led me to focus the business on designing solutions using these materials, hence the company name. Polycarbonate is an excellent glazing material offering a combination of durability and long service life with flexibility, allowing a high degree of design freedom.” He continued: “We designed our own system of extrusions with a unique push-on cap giving excellent aesthetics and this gave us a strong advantage which helped to establish the business. Aesthetics are an important consideration for walkways and canopies as these are in close proximity to the public: not hidden away on a Since then, as the company has grown, it has broadened its offering to provide structures glazed with laminated glass as well as a wider range of polycarbonate glazing systems, to meet virtually any style or budgetary requirement in this marketplace.

For every project, the whole process from design to installation is seamless and carried out by a trained team who are familiar with the various glazing systems and equally motivated to provide a quality service. Ian Mackie sums up: “ I’m proud that we enjoy an extremely high level of repeat business, which is a testament to the skill of our installers as well as the quality of the product. We only offer/ produce/manufacture canopies and covered walkways, which means we’ve amassed a huge amount of specialist experience and knowledge – and our customers keep coming back for more, so we must be doing it right!”.
