 Awnings

Awnings for Schools - Able Canopies Ltd.
When temporary shade is required, awnings are often
the perfect solution. With effortless opening and closing they provide convenient sun protection when it Is needed.

It helps to be clear on what your awning will be used for; ideal applications include shade for outdoor play or outdoor dining or seating areas and to shade internal windows and create an attractive front to a building. Awnings are designed to provide shade from the sun; they can be used in a very light rain shower but should be closed in any bad weather.

If you have an educational or commercial setting it is vital that you choose an awning that is robust and durable so that it will survive the demands expected of it in such an environment. Therefore, we recommend choosing an awning of the highest quality which has been designed for use in commercial settings as these will last a lot longer.

Manually Operated Awning Benefits


  • Electric installation is not required - therefore it will be a quicker installation

  • No need to check to see if there is an electrical supply near the awning

  • Cheaper than an electrical awning

Electronically Operated Awning Benefits


  • Easier to open and shut the awning

  • The awning can be retracted whilst indoors depending on where the switch is installed
