Canopies UK, leading manufacturer of high quality canopies, has launched a new canopy designed to help schools, colleges, academies and other educational settings get more from their outdoor space - with added wow factor.

Canopies UK, who have delivered more than 5,000 education installations across the UK during the last 25 years, have further bolstered their education sector offering with the launch of the Italia, its premier canopy range.

Its aluminium structure and silver shine finish combine to create a striking appearance, with a choice of curved or flat and angular roof shapes to complement the style of building and the surrounding architecture.

Available in a variety of sizes and projections, the Italia range comprises five different models, including the curved Monza and the flat Sienna system, which are all CE certified and backed by a five-year guarantee.

“Having worked with the education sector for the last 25 years and installed thousands of canopies in numerous educational settings, we wanted to introduce a canopy that doesn’t just deliver in the functionality stakes, but makes a real visual impact too,” says Jason Eastwood, Managing Director of Canopies UK.

“Increased competition means creating the right first impression really counts within the sector these days, as does the on-going demand of having to cater for increased class sizes using existing facilities.

“The Italia helps educational settings overcome these on-going challenges by providing them with a modern, sleek and highly stylish solution to creating more teaching, play or parent waiting space. Thanks to its contemporary design, the Italia can also be used to transform receptions into grand entranceways and other areas into instant focal points. What’s more, its self-supporting cantilevered system means there’s no need for posts at the supporting end of the canopy, which is ideal for enabling free-flowing footfall in and around entrance areas.”
