A range of larger span structures for creating dining and social area canopy shelters

Our range of outdoor dining canopies are perfect for creating covered dining areas and social areas for schools and colleges, restaurants, hospitals and care homes, garden centresand just about any other type of premises that would benefit from having an outside seating / dining area that’s protected from the elements.

Our larger-span canopy designs, such as the Oxford Barrel Vault, Oxford Lean-Toand Ascot Lean-Tomodels, are capable of creating sheltered areas big enough to accommodate numerous dining tables for pupils and customers to eat and socialise.

Benefits of Dining Area Canopies

Installing an outdoor dining area canopy can have significant commercial and logistical advantages; it can be used to free-up internal space, increase the seating capacity and enable pupils and customers to eat and socialise outside in a comfortable and sheltered environment. Dining area canopies can also be used for aesthetic purposes to improve the appearance of an outside space, and they can also serve to reinforce business branding.


Outdoor Dining Canopy Installations

An example of what can be achieved by installing a Clovis outdoor dining canopy can be seen at Comberton Village College. The two large barrel vault canopies measure 10m x 10m and provide excellent protection from the elements for students while they eat their lunch. A lighting system has also been added to both canopies in order to make them usable for after-school and evening activities.

Another example of the versatility of a covered seating area can be found at BAA Glasgow Airport. The initial requirement was for a smoking shelter, but the stylish free-standing cover now serves as an outdoor dining canopy for a franchise restaurant. This has enabled the restaurant to increase capacity and provide diners with a comfortable outdoor dining environment.
