"Very efficient during the installation. No fuss - brilliant work. Delighted to have the canopy. It will be perfect for the children playing outside when the weather is hot. It will be wonderful not having to move the sand and water tray to shaded areas in the play area to keep them from getting too hot (the children!). Parents can spend more time with their children knowing they can sit in the shade watching them play quite happily. Ideal for children on traction not able to get off beds, they can be transported on their beds outside under the shade - perfect!! Many thanks."

Canopies for Hospitals, Medical Practices, Care Homes and Hospices

  1. Hospital Canopies - Free Standing Entrance CanopyPatients can gain fresh air and gentle exercise with a stroll around the area, improving their general well being
  2. An outside area offers a quiet and calm place to think, relax and re-charge – great for both patients, residents, staff and visitors
  3. Enjoy some sunshine – patients can top up their vitamin D levels and enjoy the fresh air away
  4. An outdoor area is the perfect place for children to play or watch nature; whether it is a child patient or visiting children
  5. An outside area allows those in your care to connect with wildlife, nature and the outdoors which again promotes feelings of well being.

Why Invest in a Healthcare Canopy?

  • A canopy provides a cool area to sit and relax on hot sunny days when the indoors becomes stuffy and uncomfortable
  • A canopy creates a shaded area that can be used to gain shade from the sun as well as shelter from the rain 
  • A canopy also makes a great covered entrance area, creating a welcoming space which helps define the entrance to your building
  • Dry linkways can be created with walkway canopies, ensuring patients, staff and visitors can walk around your site whilst keeping protected from the weather

Cycle and Buggy Shelters for Healthcare Settings

Cycle shelters and buggy shelters offer a safe and secure place for your visitors and patients to store their costly cycles and prams when they are visiting your care home or health centre. They avoid the cluttering of pushchairs and bikes and reduces the risk of trip hazards, keeping your outside area safe and tidy. Our most popular shelter is the Easydale which can be supplied with buggy bars for use as a buggy shelter or with cycle racks for use as a cycle shelter. Princes Plain Clinic in Bromley, London had a 3-bay Easydale Buggy Shelter installed to provide a safe and sheltered buggy parking area for their patients.
