Canopies for Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

Canopies for Hospitals, Care Homes and Healthcare Facilities

Create a welcoming and comfortable environment for patients, staff, residents and visitors with a canopy or shelter solution.

We have worked with many customers in the Healthcare industry to create all-weather outdoor areas that can be enjoyed year-round, whatever the weather.

Hospital Shade Sails - The Kent and Canterbury Hospital, Kent Hospital Wall Mounted Canopy - Burnley Integrated Care Centre, Lancashire Surgery Wall Mounted Entrance Canopy - The Glebe Surgery, West Sussex
 

Hospitals, which typically consist of a number of buildings, can benefit from the addition of covered walkways or entrance canopies which guide visitors to the correct entrance and stop floors getting dangerously wet and slippery in rainy weather.

Our canopies and shelter solutions are particularly suited to Care and Residential Homes where they can provide shade and all-weather protection, allowing visitors and residents to enjoy the outdoors and relax in a safe environment, promoting health and well-being.

And don’t forget – we also offer a great range of cycle shelters, ideal for any organisation looking to promote healthy lifestyles and exercise, particularly Health Centres and GP Surgeries.

  • A canopy also provides permanent shade. Natural shade from trees can enhance the look and feel of the area however to ensure the area can be used in wet weather, manmade structures like canopies are a good idea.
  • A canopy also makes a great covered entrance area, creating a welcoming space which also helps to define the visitor's entrance to your building.
