Contract catering outdoor dining canopies

When space is at a premium, catering for more students can be a whole new challenge in itself. But it doesn’t have to be, not with one of our outdoor dining canopies on-site.

Outdoor dining canopies are increasingly being used to create extra seating space, which means more children can be served during the lunch break. It also means that lots of outdoor areas that aren’t necessarily used all-year round due to the weather can now be put to good use in the spring, summer, autumn and winter.

More-and-more nurseries, schools and colleges are:

  • Creating the much-needed additional space that’s required, simply by installing an outdoor dining canopy.
  • Getting the maximum use from their outdoor space in the process too.

Benefits of outdoor dining canopies

Freestanding or wall-mounted, outdoor dining canopies instantly create that added wow factor, especially if you install our Cantabria canopy, which features a retractable roof that can be opened and closed at the touch of a button.

Safely secured to surrounding walls, our wall-mounted canopies don’t have any supporting pillars or posts, creating fewer obstructions and providing maximum free space beneath them. While our freestanding outdoor dining canopies can be installed in all sorts of locations, away from existing buildings, as they don’t need to be attached to other structures for support.

What’s more, as well as instantly providing additional dining space that can be used in wind, rain or shine, our outdoor dining shelter systems can double up as study or teaching space and be colour-matched to your branding too.

Our bespoke design, installation and manufacturing service, combined with our industry-leading site-specific calculations, means our outdoor dining canopies are engineered for purpose and built to last.


We’ve installed countless dining canopies at nurseries, schools and colleges, enabling their contract caterers to serve plenty of students now – and for years to come. View our examples below.
