Our canopies are suitable for a wide range of uses including covered free-flow play areas, playground shelters, waiting areas, covered walkways, outside dining areas and sheltered locker areas. They are ideal for protecting customers, employees, or pupils from the sun and rain, transforming previously unused areas into comfortable and welcoming areas that can be utlised all year round, whatever the weather.

Due to our value engineered designs, our canopies are particularly popular with schools and nurseries as our canopies offer the best value for money as well as exceptional weather protection.

How a Canopy Can Benefit You and Your Organisation:

  • A canopy allows you to organise outdoor events or activities without worrying about the weather
  • Offer your pupils, staff or customers access to the outdoors all year round
  • With in-built UV filters in our polycarbonate and fabric roofing systems, children can play safely under the canopy 
  • It creates an ideal covered outdoor classroom - enabling children to learn about nature whatever the weather
  • Enables you to provide an all-weather outdoor seating and eating area - allowing restaurants and cafes to increase seating capacity and revenue. 
  • Messy lessons can be moved under the canopy so that the classroom can be kept clean
  • A canopy can also double as an outdoor waiting area, offering shade and shelter for parents when collecting their children.
  • Store your outdoor play or sports equipment outside - ensuring it can be used in wet weather with no need to dry it off first. Add roller shutters to your canopy to create the ultimate secure outdoor storage area
