This week, we were delighted to receive photos of a recently completed project from a client, which proved “Kanya Camper?…yes we can!”

The project was for iKamper, an innovative company specialising in roof top tents, who aim to bring the freedom of travelling and the outdoors into our lives.  Their requirement was for a framework built from Kanya aluminium profiles to fit inside a trailer. The framework is designed to take the loading of their roof top tent as well as the campers sleeping within.

The roof top tent innovation, called Skycamp, is usually fixed to the roof of a vehicle, however with the trailer addition, more campers can be accommodated…and quickly too, as the roof top tent can be set up in less than 1 minute.

iKamper are exhibiting this latest innovation at this weeks’ Camping and Caravan Show at the NEC (see photo below).

We look forward to finding out how the trailer tent went down with visitors…just another application idea from Kanya UK!


“Hot off the press”, our Kanya Newsletter February 2018 is here! Featuring the latest project application examples which we’ve been working on in our factory, there is plenty of inspiration for your next project.

From trolleys, to machine guards, turntables and exhibition display frames, we have assembled these in our factory during the last few months, before being delivered to our clients.

We are looking forward to showing the many possible applications at this weeks’ Southern Manufacturing Show. Held from the 6th to the 8th February at stand A205, we will be demonstrating our electric height adjustable workbench, a lab car prototype and display cabinet. Stand A205 is itself made from the Kanya aluminium profile system. We will also have extrusion examples available and our two Kanya Product Specialists, waiting to offer some advice and assist you with your project requirements.

After the Christmas shutdown, we’re up and running again in the factory in January with lots of interesting project applications to manufacture and despatch to our clients.

First up, a turntable created for a client in the industrial automation industry. The turntable was designed to be heavy duty to support loads of up to 100kg and therefore, heavy duty Kanya profiles were used to create the hexagonal structure which sits on the floor (see image below)

The next project of worthy mention is a mechanical Lifting Trolley. The trolley, on castors, has roller stoppers to negate the need for lifting items in place. The trolley framework is created from Kanya profiles with cladding material used for the base. To adjust the height of the trolley base for lifting equipment, a hand crank with pump is used (see image above).

Finally, not a Kanya project of sorts, but worth a mention, the Kanya exhibition stand was being constructed this week in the factory. With preparations in full swing, an important mockup of the stand was required prior to the event, the Southern Manufacturing Exhibition. Kanya UK will be exhibiting a whole range of applications at stand A205 in the brand new exhibition hall at Farnborough, from the 6rd to the 8th February 2018.

Kanya UK are pleased to announce that the electric height adjustable workbench returns once more on demonstration…

The workbench, along with other application examples, as well as our Kanya Product Sales Specialists, will be exhibiting at next months’ Southern Manufacturing Show.

For Kanya UK, this must be our 13th appearance at the event, remembering the original venue at Thorpe Park, before it moved locations to Farnborough. However, this year is a landmark year for the show, which Kanya UK are excited to be part of. Not only is it’s 20th anniversary, but a brand new purpose built hall at Farnborough will be it’s new home.

The Southern Manufacturing Show remains to be the place to meet some of Europe’s top engineering specialists. As in the case of Kanya UK, it is the ideal opportunity to showcase the aluminium assembly system and illustrate with examples what can be achieved. The height adjustable workbench, which was launched at last Septembers’ Northern Manufacturing Show, will be demonstrated, accessorised with a number of handy space-saving solutions for your workflow. In addition, a test rig example; a lab car assembly can be seen as well as a selection of the range themselves. Get to grips yourself with the system and you will find an easy to use, clever connecting solution, which will help you build frames with ease.

Our Kanya Product Specialists will be on hand to offer advice on your intended application, and with our award-winning free design service, your project can be realised.

Look out for our Kanya-built stand, Stand A205 at the Southern Manufacturing Show from the 6th to the 8th February 2018.

Kanya UK have been exhibiting great service when they provided an aluminium framework support system for an exhibition stand builder recently.

Constantly working on new ways to break the mould, Coventry-based Priority Exhibitions approached Kanya UK to help them with a particular bespoke exhibition display. They had been commissioned to build a large double sided touch screen unit for Siemens and so turned to Kanya Product Specialist Steve Taylor for advice on an aluminium framework support solution. The idea was to support nearly 3/4 of a ton of touch screen units using a modular system that could be assembled on site with pin point accuracy and speed.

Once the final design had been agreed and drawings approved, Kanya UK provided a kit of parts for the Priority Exhibition team to assemble on site.

Lewis Walters, Managing Director of Priority Exhibitions explained “Kanya not only provided a great solution in terms of product, they also worked on the structural design and helped us develop all support and fixing requirements. With prompt delivery and all round great customer support, I would not hesitate in recommending Kanya UK and Thinking Space Systems to anyone who needs a can-do approach from their suppliers. It’s not always what you supply it’s how you supply it.”

Last week, the Kanya team were busy preparing for next weeks’ Northern Manufacturing Show at Event City in Manchester. With our plans and preparations in full swing, we saw the coming together of our stand as we took delivery of and assembled our new electric height adjustable workbench demonstration model.

The workbench is a typical example of how we can create ergonomic workbenches to suit your particular application, as each workbench is custom designed. The workbench we will be demonstrating has two shelving units to hold storage bins etc. lighting and the all-important electric height adjustment for sit/stand working. The Klink toolboard is attached as well as a selection of Novus mounts for your monitors, tablets, laptops and documents. But this is just one specific application, the possibilities for workbench configurations are endless, with storage drawers, compartments, task lighting and equipment mounts to suit.

As specialists in ergonomic furniture design, Kanya UK provides a free consultation and design service. We consider the needs of your staff, the techniques, tools and the equipment they are using to undertake each task so that their workspace avoids repetitive strain injuries, neck pains, backaches, blurry vision and poor posture. The height adjustable feature ensures that the employee has control over their own workspace, ensuring comfort and efficiency.

Try out the workbench for yourself at Stand D62 on the 27th and 28th September, and talk to our specialists about the possibilities for your ergonomic workstation.
