Our Products

Flexible, robust and easy to maintain, our Spaceshade® canopies and shade sails are ideal for hospitals and healthcare establishments of all types.

Anti-Ligature Canopies

Anti-Ligature Canopies

A canopy cannot be entirely ligature-free, but you can minimise ligature risk. With safety features such as a non-fragile roof, built-in gutters, concealed downpipes and non-exposed bolts or fixings, a Spaceshade® canopy is well-suited suited to high-risk environments like mental health facilities. 

Spaceshade Walkway

Walkway Canopies

Moving around your hospital site will be safer and more comfortable for patients and staff with Spaceshade® walkway canopies. With the ability to add lighting, sidewalls and doors, our canopies can be customised to meet your needs and help protect vulnerable patients from the weather.

Canopies for Gardens & Recreation Areas

With the option to add infill panels or retractable blinds, our canopies can create a dry, weather-protected space for patients to enjoy the benefits of spending time outside. The clean lines and modern design enhances any outdoor setting.


Shade Sails

Create a shaded recreation or relaxation area and a striking feature with a shade sail. Available in a wide range of vibrant colours, we offer a choice of designs, including multi-post shade sails, umbrella-style single posts, or bespoke design.


Cycle Shelters

Secure cycle storage is very important in a public, high-traffic area like a hospital or health centre. Choose from a steel or timber cycle shelter, for safe, all-weather cycle storage. We offer standard, cost-effective, off-the-shelf design, or bespoke solutions.

End-to-end Project Management

From design and structural calculations through to groundworks and installation, we manage the whole process, guaranteeing a friction-free experience for our clients.

Enclosed Canopies

All-Weather Outdoor Spaces 

Enclosed canopies with additional side walls or infill panels help to protect patients and staff when outside. Choose from glass, polycarbonate or solid side walls, with the option to add doors or openings to suit your needs. Our Spaceshade canopies also allow for lighting and heaters to be seamlessly integrated into the design.

In a mental health environment, incorporating infill panels to the sides of a Spaceshade canopy decreases potential ligature risk further. 

Spending time outside is known to boost mood and overall health and wellbeing - allow your patients and staff to experience the benefits in a sheltered, weather-protected environment.
