Benefits of Our Spaceshade® Covered Walkway Canopies

From complete project management to solar panel installation, working with Kensington Systems ensures peace of mind both during the covered walkway project and delivering long term benefits.

Solar Compatible Walkway Canopies

Our Spaceshade® covered walkway canopies come with the option to fit or retrofit solar panels, allowing you to generate renewable energy to power your business and cut your running costs.

Fast-to-Install Canopies

Spaceshade® walkway canopies' modular design allows them to be installed quickly, with minimal disruption to your day-to-day activities. They're also ideal for hard to reach spaces like courtyards and narrow passages, as no heavy equipment is required for the installation.

Easy Maintenance

Our powder-coated aluminium Spaceshade canopies are extremely durable and corrosion free. With low-maintenance features like concealed gutters and downpipes, and a non-fragile roof, they're easy to care for and carry a 25-year life-expectancy.

Full project management

Enjoy peace of mind knowing we manage your covered walkway project from start to finish. We take care of everything, from groundworks, installation, surfacing and any electrical work required.

Covered Walkway Canopies Customised to Your Needs

At Kensington Systems we offer bespoke options tailored to get the most from your covered walkway canopy, including weather-proof side walls, lighting to improve safety, and solar panels to generate clean energy and improve ROI.

Side Walls

Side Walls

Adding side walls on one or both sides of your covered walkway canopy provides additional weather protection, or can create a barrier between different parts of your site. Choose between glass, polycarbonate or solid side walls according to your preference.



You have a duty of care to ensure the safety of people moving around your site. This includes providing adequate lighting for people moving around your site, with or without a covered walkway. Installing integrated lighting into your covered walkway canopy improves ambience and safety, especially during the darker winter months.

Kensington Systems Solar Canopy

Solar Panels

A Spaceshade® walkway can be an ideal place to install solar panels. Designed for either built-in solar panels or standard rail-mounted types, your solar covered walkway can help you generate renewable energy, cutting your electricity bills and your CO² emissions.

'added an extra dimension'

'We’re delighted with our covered walkway from Kensington Shade and Shelter. It has added an extra dimension to our outdoor space. It fulfills its function of keeping children dry as they travel around the school site but also works architecturally in the environment. The muted greys of the powder coated finish work in harmony with other structures on the site and enhance the setting as well as forming a visual link with the outdoor classrooms.'
