Freestanding play area canopies

Freestanding playground shelters are outdoor shelters that can be installed pretty much anywhere, space and surroundings-permitting.

Freestanding play area canopies are the obvious choice for nurseries and schools that want to create sheltered play zones that are in a newer part of their site or away from other buildings.

These freestanding systems don’t need to be attached to other structures for support. They can also be designed so that the supporting posts are positioned at the back, minimising the risk of obstruction and fully opening up the space beneath. Made from systems, such as Connekt our freestanding playground shelters are available in any length.

Our playground canopies are delivered using our bespoke design, manufacturing and installation service and based on our industry-leading site-specific calculations, providing you with peace of mind that your canopy is engineered to last and 100% meets your requirements. Don’t forget to ask us about our colour-matching service too…


Freestanding playground shelters are used by nurseries and schools far and wide to create self-supporting outdoor play zones in all sorts of locations. Browse our gallery for some ideas.

Our Connekt canopy system is a modular system and can be any length – you can even add to it in the future. It is highly versatile and is used singularly or in multiples to cover large areas. It projects up to 4m when fixed to a building and the cantilevered design means no supporting posts are needed.
