Oakwood High School – Covered Dining/Social Area Canopy no. 2
This canopy was procured by the school for use as an additional outside dining and social area following the successful previous installation of a dining/social canopy in early 2020. This freestanding waterproof PVC fabric clad Ascot Lean-to style canopy measures approximately 7.1m wide x 25.7m long. A clamped glass side panel was added to the front of the structure giving students some extra protection from the prevailing winds and rain making the covered space even more usable during bad weather conditions. The pictures you see that were taken during overcast weather were captured just after the canopy was installed, the pictures taken during the sunny weather were captured a year later, and the canopy is still looking great 12 months later!

- 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.
- Are your canopies usable all year in all weathers?
Yes unlike some solutions that need to be taken down in the winter or during high winds our canopies are designed to be useable all year round. The cladding materials as well as providing shade are also waterproof so that they can be used during wet weather.
- What guarantees are offered?
Subject to appropriate cleaning and maintenance we offer the following guarantees:-
- Framework – 25 years against failure within design, wind and snow loadings
- Polycarbonate – 10 years against discolouration from sunlight
- Fabric Cladding – 10 years against degradation / failure from sunlight
We aim for 100% satisfaction 100% of the time.
- Do you fix your canopies directly onto tarmac?
No, all canopies are fixed on to concrete pads or bases as the structures can lift out from the ground if not fixed into a suitable concrete base due to the uplift created by wind acting on the roof area.
We'd love to hear from you
