Benefits of TimberPlus Canopies
Free Site Survey
Within just five working days, one of specialist surveyors will aim to be with you on site: we’ll then follow this up promptly with a no-obligation quote showing the canopy design within your school setting so you know exactly how it will look.
Durable, Innovative and Fully Recyclable
We use an aluminium roof system which is low maintenance and easy to clean. The clever hybrid design offers the best of both worlds, providing the beauty of natural timber with a durable long lasting roof system. All the materials we use are all fully recyclable, meaning that no components will end up in landfill.
Beautiful Natural Wood Finish
Use more sustainable materials without sacrificing longevity. We use sustainably sourced, hardwearing softwood grown in the UK and Europe. The wood can be stained or treated in a variety of different finishes, or left to weather naturally according to your preference.
All Groundworks included
Installing a canopy is not just about the canopy itself – you also need to think about groundworks.
We include groundworks as part of our turnkey service, and project manage the whole installation for you, from groundworks to installation to resurfacing and final cleanup. See () as an example.

Conserving Natural Resources
A hybrid canopy manufactured partly from timber, partly from aluminium provides much better value for money than a standard timber canopy, which a school might turn to, to save money.
Using aluminium for some of the components makes the hybrid more durable and longer lasting than a standard timber canopy. This means replacement is required less often, saving money and conserving natural resources. Aluminium is highly recyclable material, and can be recycled many times without losing quality.
Solar Panel Integrated Timber Canopy
Unlike an all-timber canopy, aluminium roof rafters can easily accommodate solar panels on the roof due to their high strength-to-density ratio, whereas timber rafters need to be larger and thicker to support the weight of the glass. This makes it much easier to fit or retrofit solar PV panels onto your canopy at a later date.
