Canopies are a common sight in public spaces around the world. From gas stations to toll booths and walkways, these canopies provide essential protection for equipment, people and vehicles. They can also help to prevent stormwater runoff which is detrimental to the environment.
A canopy is an attractive addition to any outdoor space, whether it’s for a school or university campus, retail centre, sports stadium or even the workplace. It can create a safe, comfortable area for outdoor learning and socialising, especially when weather turns poor or cold. We are experts in supplying and installing high quality hard wearing canopies for schools, nurseries, colleges and universities, all backed by our first-class service. We can transform outside areas by adding efficient shelter between classrooms, shaded play zones for kids to play, sociable dining areas or outdoor waiting shelters.
Students at Malet Lambert School in Hull were often left with nowhere to go during their break times so staff contacted Canopy and Shelter Specialists A&S Landscape for a solution. They were impressed with the idea of our Motiva Linear straight roof canopy and chose six structures made to an overall size of 10000mm x 7000mm. These are fabricated in Moss Green steelwork and topped with Opal coloured fabric. The canopies have been a hit with students who use them for socialising, eating alfresco and soaking up the fresh air during their breaks.
We are also well accustomed to working with hospitals and doctor surgeries, dental practices, hospices and veterinary clinics to create hardwearing, practical canopies. These structures offer a protective cover from the sun and rain for patients, visitors and staff, helping to keep the waiting areas tidy and reducing the risk of infection.
For the sports fanatics in your life, we can also supply and install a range of bioclimatic canopies which are free from obstructing posts to maximise seating and spectator space. These are becoming increasingly popular with schools, sports clubs and local authorities as they can rotate to pre-set angles to provide shade and promote ventilation.
Many people think that canopies are expensive, but the truth is that they come in a variety of prices depending on what features you want and need. We are proud to offer a range of affordable, heavy-duty canopies which are built to the highest standards and will last for years to come.
We can also supply and fit a number of curved canopies which provide a more decorative and elegant finish to your outdoor space. These are ideal for creating a stunning entrance to your facility or to separate a pedestrian area from the surrounding buildings. These canopies are available in a wide range of colours and finishes to suit any aesthetic. Our high quality canopies can be easily cleaned using warm water and a soft bristled brush or broom. Cleaning guidelines can be found in your aftersales pack which will be sent out following your purchase. We can also provide a full maintenance package to ensure your canopies are looking great all year round.
