Dining Area Canopies

Dining outdoors is one of life’s great pleasures and more and more schools and organisations are recognising the enormous positive impact eating 'alfresco' can have on their pupils. When considering outdoor dining in the UK we must also consider shelter from the weather. Dining area canopies will create covered seating areas giving students the opportunity to take a sandwich outside and socialise with friends. This promotes a welcome feeling of relaxation and well-being which in turn has a positive effect on productivity and the ability to learn.

A&S Landscape offer a number of products that can provide ideal shelter for dining and seating areas with options to suit all requirements and budgets. We always keep in mind the aesthetics of the building and the space available for a dining area canopy and can work with clients to make maximum use of the space and budget available. There are many reasons to consider a dining area canopy, many of the schools across the UK we have worked with have required a large outdoor dining area to accommodate pupils at lunchtimes, a cheaper alternative to extending the dining room.

St Peters Catholic High School

Dear Sirs

A & S Landscape did a really good job at our school. The service provided was excellent and the workmen were very professional and unobtrusive causing no disruption to our school day. The canopies themselves are finished to a high quality and look extremely smart. Our pupils love the canopies and use them at break and lunch times. They provide excellent shelter from the rain and shade from the sun.
