Entrance Canopy Style Options

In a previous blog post titled The Benefits of Entrance Canopies in Commercial Settings, we discussed exactly that; the benefits that an entrance canopy can bring to your commercial setting. Today however, I’m taking you through the entrance canopy styles and options available to help you choose the perfect shade and shelter structure for your entrance.

Entrance Canopy Style Options

First of all, there are many entrance canopy styles to choose from including domed entrance canopies which suit many building styles including modern designs; apex entrance canopies which tend to suit more historic buildings; and cantilevered entrance canopies which look fantastic in contemporary settings. With all the difference designs available, you are sure to find the perfect style for your desired appearance.

We offer all the above designs as well as offering bespoke entrance canopies to ensure we find the perfect solution for your setting. Check out the bespoke timber entrance canopies we installed at The Oaks Primary School in Birmingham pictured below, and Paganel Primary School, also in Birmingham.

Entrance Canopy Size Options

Entrance Canopies can be installed in many sizes to suit your requirements, if you are looking for something small and modest to cover an area just above the doors, the Abberton Entrance Canopy is a great budget choice, or alternatively, the Kensington Junior Entrance Canopy looks great and adds a depth of grandeur to an entrance.

If however you are looking to cover a larger area, the Welford Dome Entrance Canopy will have you covered, as will the Whiteside Entrance Canopy, both of which are very popular across many sectors including education and healthcare.

Entrance Canopy Construction Material

Our entrance canopy range consists of steel and aluminium structures however, as all our structures are made to order, we can transform our timber canopies into entrance canopies to suit your needs as shown above at The Oaks Primary School.

Our steel and aluminium entrance canopies are the most popular choice across the board and it’s no wonder as there are 19 designs to choose from including wall mounted, freestanding, cantilevered, mono-pitched, curve and domed. Click here to view all our commercial entrance canopies.

Entrance Canopy Colour Options

As well as many design and material options, entrance canopies are also available in a wide range of colours with many available in any RAL colour to ensure you get an exact match to your current window and door frames. Or, if you would prefer, you can create a contrasting effect by choosing a colour that is different yet, still fits in, making more of a focal point with your entrance canopy.

Entrance Canopies with Signage and Branding

A great way to make your entrance stand out is by adding canopy signage. You can add whatever design you wish to the signage such your logo, the name of your school/business, your branding colours, text of your choice and images.

Signage has been popular in the past for schools and organisations who’s visitors struggle to find their main entrance. Adding signage makes the entrance stand out and makes it much more visible and clearer as to whether it is the correct entrance, by labelling it like Wrexham Hospital did as shown below:
