Garden Centre Tunnel Canopies

Our range of galvanised or powder coated garden centre tunnel canopies offers an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable environment for your visitors to browse your plants and other products. With more and more people across the UK visiting garden centres each year, it’s increasingly important to make the most of your available space. Consumers now demand a better shopping experience than ever, which is why it is important that any exposed areas are sheltered if necessary. Our large-span garden centre tunnel canopies and covers for outdoor sales areas will help you to do that, allowing your customers to appreciate the beauty of your plants while sheltered from the wind, rain and snow.

If you’re a start-up looking for weather-resistant premises, or looking to replace your old garden centre canopy, contact us today for a free no-obligation quote.

Canopy Installation

Installing a canopy in your garden centre will not only help to keep your visitors dry and comfortable, but it could help to increase sales too. Covering your outside sales space with one of our canopies will help to keep your flowers and plants looking good all year round regardless of the weather, thereby reducing stock damage or loss and increasing profits. Codsall & Wergs Garden Centre is a prime example of how a Clovis canopy has been used to extend the “indoor” sales area, maximise available space and provide customers with a comfortable shopping experience.

As well as being a sound commercial investment for any garden centre with an outside space in which they display plants and flowers, our canopies and covers are also extremely versatile. Able to cover large areas within a set budget or awkward areas that would be difficult or expensive to cover with conventional structures, our garden centre canopies can be adapted to suit the needs of your business.

Quality, Durable Canopies

Our canopies are also extremely durable and robust. Clovis Canopies can supply and install non-fragile canopies and shelters that can withstand heavy impacts without sustaining noticeable damage, as demonstrated by our 45kg drop test. Our non-fragile garden centre canopies are extremely strong and can withstand knocks and scrapes that would dent, crack or even shatter most other types of canopies and covers.

Garden centre canopies can also be used to house extra seasonal shopping areas or even restaurant and coffee shop areas, thereby expanding the commercial opportunities available to your garden centre. A weatherproof canopy from Clovis will turn your garden centre into more than just a place to buy flowers and other plants; it will expand the possibilities for your business and allow it to fully cater to the needs of your visitors, whatever the time of year.

Canopies for Customer Movement

Our garden centre canopies also have another, more subtle use: they can be used to encourage customer movement to various areas of your centre and guide them to special promotions and those products that drive high-profit margins. Your garden centre’s physical environment affects the way in which shoppers interact with your merchandise, and it ultimately affects how much money customers spend.

We manufacture our garden centre canopies from the highest quality materials and design them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your garden centre, giving a flawless look which is bound to impress your customers. If you’re considering covering an exposed area of your sales space or replacing an existing garden centre canopy with a metal canopy or a polycarbonate awning, get in touch for a free quote.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we view existing canopies, so that we know what we are buying?

If you are considering purchasing a canopy from any company, it is in fact strongly recommended that you visit an existing installation to see exactly what you are paying for. At Clovis Canopies we are proud of our work and are happy to arrange (with the clients consent) for you to view examples of our work and structures.

What further peace of mind can you give us before we place an order?

We are a sound, family run company with a high credit rating, which has been manufacturing and installing modular steel buildings for over 45 years.

Will our concerns over children and staff safety be addressed prior to installation?

We have been working within schools for many years. All contractors are Clovis approved and CRB checked. Full risk assessments are carried out prior to starting installation taking into consideration your requirements and safety fencing is erected wherever needed at no additional charge.

Will I require planning permission?

We always advise that you call your local planning authority as there are no hard and fast rules. They will advise on whether you require planning permission for your proposed canopy. Although it differs from region to region canopies under 30m2 may not require permission but this can be affected by situations such as proximity to neighbours, listed building status, conservation areas etc. so it always best to check. We are happy to provide free of charge, scaled drawings etc. of the proposed canopy structure to assist your application should you require.
