Canopy Testimonials

Please read through a selection of our customer testimonials below:

“Service throughout was excellent, from your prompt reply to our initial enquiry, your pro-active sales rep and surveyor to the professional installation team. Your team worked extremely hard to get the canopy installed in record time, leaving the site clean and tidy. We are very pleased with the product.”

King Alfred School, London

“Excellent service from the outset. The product looks fantastic, the installation team were reliable and adhered to WCL H&S policies at all the time without the need to prompt. The Canopy has also received numerous positive comments from the client which is a credit to Able. “

Wates Group (Re: Bluecoat Primary School), Nottinghamshire

“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.”

Croydon University Hospital, London
