Thisley Academy Canopy

Dining Canopy Installation at Thistley Hough Academy

The Creative Education Trust approached us to find a canopy solution to increase Thistley Hough Academy’s dining space.

The goal was to expand the functional outdoor dining space with a robust, weather-resistant solution that would stand the test of time. We installed A Spaceshade® Aluminium Canopy and Catering Pod. 

Offering an extension that seamlessly blends into the building’s existing aesthetic, the outdoor dining canopy features a sturdy aluminium construction with eye-catching purple powder coating to match the school’s badge colours.

Thanks to the additional outdoor space now available, Thistly Hough Academy can commit to taking on more students, which equals additional funding for the school and Creative Academy Trust. This allows the trust to invest more into improving it’s schools and attracting more students long term.

Triumph Motorcycles Walkway

Spaceshade® Walkway Canopy Installation for Triumph Motorcycles

The Triumph Motorcycles factory and visitor experience in Hinckley, Leicestershire, recently underwent a refurbishment, which included a new Spaceshade® walkway canopy installed by Kensington Systems.

Shaped to follow the line of the path, the covered walkway protects staff and visitors from the weather, and the dark grey colour complements the buildings on site. Features like integrated gutters & downpipes not only look good, but are easy to clean and maintain too.

Kensington Systems provided an end-to-end package, including groundworks, canopy installation and the installation of bespoke flashing to provide a tighter weather seal against the building.

Castle Primary School Coloured Canopy 3

School Canopy & Covered Walkway Installation at Castle Primary School

We installed Spaceshade outdoor learning canopies for the new teaching block constructed at Castle Primary School in Keynsham. The installation has provided Castle Primary with the space to expand to a 2FE school

The canopy frames were powder coated in RAL 7012 to match the external finishes, and coloured polycarbonate roof panels were chosen for the canopies in the reception area. Red, orange and yellow were chosen to evoke the feeling of sunshine, even on grey days. The Spaceshade® canopy system features gutters and downpipes that are concealed in the frame and can connect directly to underground drainage channels to avoid any slip hazard caused by excess surface water.

The new playground shelters have become an ideal space for outdoor learning and play, while the covered walkway provides a link between the old and new buildings.
