What our customers say

"The work was started and completed as scheduled and to budget: we are very pleased with the structure, it enhances the appearance of the building."

Graham Newman
Facilities Manager at The Pines School

"The Spaceshade® canopies installed at our new school are very robust, look fantastic, we are very impressed by the ongoing service levels received by Kensington Systems Ltd. We would recommend them to any school or academy trust looking for a new covered space or shaded area."

Craig Davis
Facilities Manager, Perry Court Primary Academy, Bristol

"I am writing to express my thanks for the work your company completed for us during the half term break. It was a pleasure to come back to school today to find not only was all the work completed as per the schedule but unlike some of the other contractors on site, each area your people worked in was left totally clean and tidy."

Case studies

Ruth Gorse Academy Canopy 2

Outdoor dining canopy for Ruth Gorse Academy

We supplied Ruth Gorse Academy with a 14 by 12-metre free-standing Spaceshade® canopy system, featuring fully-retractable side screens to enable students to dine outdoors whatever the weather.

Western Health Canopy 2

Canopy Installation at Western Health Trust Hospital, Omagh

We worked with Western Health Trust Hospital in Omagh, NI, to develop two spacious hospital canopies with enclosed side panels. The final design included our market-leading Spaceshade MAX hospital canopy system and created a pleasant covered outdoor area for all users to enjoy.

Radisson-Blu-Cardiff-blinds-1 2

Vertical blind system for Radisson Blu Hotel, Cardiff

Radisson Blue Cardiff Hotel wanted to reduce glare in its dining areas. We installed remote control motorised Louvashade vertical blinds to the high level windows at the front of the building and opted for manual Louvashade vertical blinds on the lower level locations to give its valued customers a better experience.
