Benefits of our Commercial Canopies
Free Site Survey
We’ll come to site and do a free, no-obligation site survey or video call to scope your requirements.
This ensures our quotation is accurate and meets your needs as closely as possible.
Easy Maintenance with 25 year warranty
Our canopies are manufactured from high quality, hardwearing materials like aluminium and glulam timber. Powdercoated aluminium is extremely durable and corrosion-free. And the 25 year warranty gives you assurance of quality and peace of mind.
Other features such as integrated gutters and downpipes, and a non-fragile roof keep maintenance needs to a minimum.
Complete Project Management
We design solutions for covered outdoor space to meet your requirements – as part of the design process we’ll create bespoke CGIs and 3D walkthroughs to help you envision how your canopy will look.
It doesn’t stop there. We offer complete end-to-end project management from groundworks to final cleanup, and are experienced working as both lead contractors and with incumbent facilities management companies.
Innovative, Modern Design
Choosing an attractive, modern canopy design helps to create a welcoming, comfortable ambience at your premises.
Using materials such as aluminium and glulam timber allows for larger spans between posts, creating more clear space and requiring fewer uprights and foundations. Our modular design is quick to install, keeping disruption to your business to a minimum.
Commercial Canopies for Businesses and Retailers across the UK
Whether you are looking to shelter goods in a loading bay, provide comfort for staff moving between buildings or create a memorable and welcoming first impression, Kensington System’s attractive, long-lasting canopies can be designed to suit your needs.
Choose from modern, contemporary aluminium or dramatic, sculptural glulam timber. Installed quickly with minimum disruption, our experienced team will manage the whole project for you from start to finish, ensuring you are completely satisfied at every stage.
Solar PV canopies
Our robust, long-lasting canopies are ideal for accommodating solar panels, giving you the ability to generate clean energy from areas like walkways where installing solar panels wasn’t previously possible.
Innovations like solar glass, which has photovoltaic cells laminated into glass sheets, allows light through and generates electricity at the same time.
We’ll manage the whole process for you, including the solar installation, battery storage and electrical connections to your supply by our experienced electricians.
“The Spaceshade canopy systems look fabulous and have been a great addition to both the new and existing parts of the building.”

Case Study – The District Community Centre, Didcot
The District Community Centre in Didcot was built as part of the Great Western Park development. The community centre includes several external canopies installed by Kensington Systems, providing high quality outdoor space for its users, while an entrance canopy provides an attractive, welcoming entrance area.
The centre opted to make the entrance canopy longer than usual and install cycle hoops underneath, creating a bike storage area without having to also install a separate cycle shelter.
Case Study – Foleshill Health Centre, Coventry
The first GP surgery in the UK to be built with modern methods of construction, Foleshill Health Centre in Coventry features a stunning glulam timber entrance canopy which creates a dramatic feature at the front of the building.
Manufactured from high-strength glulam timber, the canopy is stained a contemporary grey colour, contrasting well with the cladding.
Case Study – Triumph Motorcycles UK, Hinckley
Kensington Systems recently installed a Spaceshade® aluminium walkway canopy at the Triumph Motorcycles factory in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
The robust materials and modern design create an attractive, low-maintenance walkway, allowing staff and visitors to walk outside in comfort.
Case Study – Here & Now Buildings, Reading
Here and Now are two office buildings originally part of the Microsoft Campus in Thames Valley Business Park, Reading.
The refurbishment of these two buildings into sustainable flexible working hubs included the installation of two glulam timber entrance canopies.
The canopies include built in lighting, waterproofing and drainage, and planting and signage installed at the front. They create a stunning new entrance area for the Here and Now complex, which has won multiple awards since completion.
