An Introduction to Able Canopies

Free Standing Canopies

Free Standing Canopies

Our Free Standing Canopies are complete self-supporting systems, which are available in a range of materials - from steel to timber frameworks with polycarbonate to glass roofing options. We also offer a wide range of Tensile Fabric Canopies which are free standing and feature waterproof tensile fabric roofing. 

View our video below to see the full range and their features and benefits.


Free standing canopies offer freedom of design and are a great alternative to wall mounted canopies. A key benefit of a free standing canopy is the ability to install the structure almost anywhere, allowing you to create an all-weather outdoor play area wherever you need it. 


We also have four Adaptable Free Standing Canopies in our range.
