Over the last few years, the number of our canopies being installed at schools has increased dramatically

They are ideal for creating covered play areas, parent shelters or covered walkways. The freestanding concept means not only do you gain more space, but you can have a purpose built canopy where access is restricted. Manufactured from GRP (more commonly known as fibreglass), they are incredibly strong (so resistant to vandals) and self coloured so require no maintenance or painting. In September 2003 the government announced an action plan to encourage schools to tackle the rising use of cars on the school run. Capital grants are available to fund things such as cycle and parent waiting shelters of which canopies are the perfect solution.
