What Makes Able Canopies Different

Why Choosing the Right Canopy Supplier Matters

Tuck Shop Canopy installed at Cecil Jones Academy in Essex

Your canopy will be an important part of the built environment of your school. It will perform a number of roles – provide all year-round shelter, become an outside classroom or be used as a meeting place. It therefore needs to have the same care and attention applied to it as any building or structure on your Campus.

Any canopy installation needs to follow construction best practice requirements – efficient design, clear planning, site safety, high quality materials and care throughout the period of the installation and beyond.

That is why choosing the right canopy supplier matters. Find out more about what you should be looking for below.

“The canopy has changed the whole view of the building and brought it into the 21st Century (it is on the oldest part of the school). It looks modern and welcoming. The service was excellent - it was installed during school time but with minimal disruption and no mess.”

- St Mark's C of E Primary School, Morwenstow, Cornwall

Design & Planning

Your project will need to start with a thorough discussion of your needs and you will need to be confident that your supplier can provide the design service and understanding required to allow the work to be fully assessed, calculated and planned to ensure it is safe, efficient and meets your overall needs.

At Able we have the design and drawing expertise required to bring your shelter requirements to life and to develop any bespoke elements, such as fixings and guttering, where necessary.

We also provide free planning assistance, where it is required. You pay the cost of the application and any maps, such as the Site Location Plan, and we will do the rest. For more information click here: Canopy Planning Help

Commitment to Quality

Securing a good price for your project is a key factor but compromising on quality would be a false economy. Aluminium canopies will be guaranteed for 10 years and will continue to perform well past that if they are made from quality materials (look for CE marking) and are supported by services and processes that have been independently assessed and audited, like ISO 9001 & 14001. Able can tick all the boxes in this area. Click here toview all of our certifications.
