Make a lasting first impression with an Entrance Canopy
“A&S Landscape kept to their timescale the project was an excellent, efficient exercise. They do as they promise.”
Headteacher, Wright Robinson College
“A&S Landscape are an extremely professional company, they could not have done more to make this project go smoothly.”
Business Manager, St Wilfrid’s High School
“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend A&S Landscape. They’ve been marvellous, they really are first class.”
Site Manager, Poynton High School
Sometimes in the construction of a building, the need to have clearly identifiable areas can be forgotten. This was the problem that faced Whybridge Infant School in Rainham, Essex. Presenting somewhat of a puzzle to visitors, the school wanted to redefine the main reception area to make it much more inviting. The installation of an entrance canopy delivered just that, and a sleek and clearly defined structure was designed to meet their needs. With the use of the A&S Landscape Motiva Cantilever canopy, it was possible to add a new school entrance canopy without additional steel support pillars. This left the entrance door clear and accessible and created an inviting and open feel. Matching the structure to the rest of the school building by keeping the steelwork colour white, it’s almost as though the new porch canopy has always been there.

A creative solution was needed for the dilemma faced by St George’s Junior School, Shrewsbury. The staff at the school really wanted to make the entrance way much more friendly, but the space available to improve the area was slightly awkward. Despite its position between two of the school’s existing buildings, A&S Landscape was still able to design a plan to give St George’s Junior School the perfect entrance canopy. To ensure that this school shelter canopy clearly defined the entrance to the school, the steel structure was finished in Ultramarine Blue which fitted in with the school’s branding. And even though the space was tight, with the careful positioning of the curved roof of the Motiva Duo canopy, the new entrance porch fits right in.

Patient-centred care is amongst the top priorities at Mynydd Mawr Hospital in Llanelli. As part of their continuous efforts to improve the hospital’s environment, they called upon A&S Landscape to assist with the design and construction of a new entrance porch. The aim was to provide patients with a shelter from the elements, as well as a protected waiting area. To deliver on this brief, A&S Landscape installed two Motiva Entro canopies. This provided protection from the rain, but also from the sun’s damaging rays because the Opal effect polycarbonate roofing has added UV filters, another important consideration for this healthcare setting. The hospital was so pleased with the end result that they rated A&S Landscape five stars out of five for the project. To find out more about the Mynydd Mawr Hospital entrance canopy click here.
Located in Darnall, Sheffield, High Hazels Academy wanted to add a school shelter and entrance canopy to their school as part of a larger development project. The Motiva Linear structure finished off the school entrance perfectly. Its functional design provides not only a statement to welcome visitors to the school, but also a practical space that gives shelter from wet weather and shade from harmful rays on sunny days. As shelters for schools go, this one looked great finished off in Ultramarine Blue, picked out from amongst the school’s theme colours. And far from looking like an add-on, it complemented the wider redevelopment perfectly. A&S Landscape has completed many entrance canopies and school shelters, and High Hazels Academy was able to benefit from their extensive experience for this project.

Buxton School in Leytonstone, located in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, knows all about continuity. They teach children from the age of 3 to 16 years. So when it came to developing the campus to provide a seamless entrance shelter, the project had to look just right. Their requirement was for a large entrance canopy that would also act as a school shelter. At nearly 13 metres in length, and just over 3 metres wide, it was important to get it right. With framework from the Motiva Linear range, the canopy was built using grey steelwork and topped off with an opal polycarbonate roof. The finished article provided a practical, yet aesthetically pleasing finish. The continuous line of the entrance canopy matched with its surroundings to give a satisfyingly cohesive look.

The Headteacher at Randlay Primary School and Nursery had wanted to put the finishing touches to the school, following the completion of an earlier extension project. A&S Landscape is always happy to help with projects like this. We know that we’ll be able to help customers with adding the perfect structure to complement their refurbishment. In Randlay Primary School and Nursery’s case, we installed the Motiva Entro entrance canopy. We particularly love the fact that they chose a blue from the school’s colours to be replicated in the steel framework. The entrance shelter looked fabulous because it matched in with the other blue accents around the building and with the school’s signage. On one hand practical, on the other a visible identity statement, this project shows how school entrance canopies can have a real impact on how a school looks and feels.

Randlay Primary School and Nursery in Telford, Shropshire, had recently added a new entrance area to their building. However, they soon realised that to give visitors the best first impression of their school, the existing building needed something extra. They decided that a great way to achieve this was to add a canopy. By framing the door, the entrance would appear much smarter and more welcoming to visitors. This is when A&S Landscape was first introduced to the project, who continued their involvement throughout the whole process. Firstly, with help from the design team, detailed sketches were produced outlaying the canopy dimensions. This sketch was then manufactured into the real thing, and finally, the entrance canopy was installed.
We knew that the school’s leading requirement for the shelter was to ensure that everyone visiting the school would receive the right first impression. The attached overhang needed to bring the added wow factor! This heavily influenced our final choice of canopy which was the Motiva Entro™. As you would expect from its name, this is one of our standard entrance canopy designs. These are popular also with other educational facilities such as universities, or commercial premises and healthcare sites. Despite being from our standard range, we were able to fit the canopy to the exact requirements of the school, with additional design features.
With its curved roof and high strength steel frame finished in a blue colour (a standard RAL colour for our Dura-coat™ finishes), the door canopy makes a real statement. The blue perfectly suits the brand colours of the surrounding buildings. Although the roof is built from translucent and transparent panels, the polycarbonate roof sheets effectively filter out the harmful UV rays, making this an effective and stylish structure. This truly is a great entrance canopy and while it measures at a relatively small 3000mm x 2000mm, there is no doubt the astounding difference the defined entrance has made to the whole frontage of the building.
The school feel they now have now created the perfect entrance environment. The stunning curved roof canopy has been a massive improvement to the appearance of the building, giving it the identity that was previously lacking. We are so pleased to have installed one of our quality shelters which offers long-term durability, maximum protection, and is a real focal point for the school. We were absolutely over the moon to hear what the Headteacher had to say about how well the covered entrance had gone down with students, staff and visitors alike.
“Following a new entrance area and school office being built on our school last year, it was decided to finish everything off by erecting a colourful and welcoming canopy to further highlight the main entrance to the school. A&S Landscape designed, built and fitted the canopy and, without a shadow of a doubt, it has proved to be a wonderful addition to the new build. We are more than delighted with the canopy itself as the design, the quality of workmanship and the finish are exceptional. Parents, children and visitors continue to comment on the canopy and how it has given the school’s entrance area an identity it so long needed. Thank you.”
Headteacher – Randlay Primary School
Randlay Primary School and Nursery is located in the town of Telford, Shropshire. The team of talented staff are committed to treating each child as an individual and are truly conscious of the role that the surrounding environment plays in this. Thanks to the amazing range of frame colour choices for the additional shelter, they have created a perfect balance of warmth, nurture and welcome when students arrive at school each day.
They were a truly great client to work alongside, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them on all aspects of the process. We are glad to have installed an ideal shelter that has transformed the entire building and will have the much-desired lasting first impression for many years to come.

Want an entrance canopy that extends your business’s branding out to the exterior of your building? This can be an amazing way of making an impression on potential customers and passers-by while creating a professional and coherent visual style that shows you are a business that makes that extra effort.

An entrance canopy can extend your usable workspace beyond the entrance of your building. For any business, space is a primary concern. Whether it’s interior or exterior space, you want to be making the absolute most out of what you’re paying for. A high-quality front door canopy or other entrance canopy can help you make the most out of more of this space.
When it comes to businesses like hotels and restaurants, a large entrance canopy can double up to create added usable space for seating and dining. And for any business, entrance canopies can function as weather protection, smoking shelters, sun shades and more.
As we’ve mentioned above, entrance canopies provide you with an opportunity to create an impressive visual style, impress customers and passers-by, extend the reach of your branding, and welcome and invite guests into your building. But a good entrance canopy is all about a great deal of functionality, too.
Entrance canopies can protect your building, your products and your customers from the elements. Here in the UK, we certainly enjoy some unpredictable weather! You can never assume there won’t be an absolute downpour in the heat of summer, so it’s important to be ready and prepared for all outcomes!
Fortunately, here at A&S Landscape, we specialise in providing entrance canopies and shelters that act as sun shades against UV rays, heat and light while also protecting against rain showers and preventing the rain from coming in through the front door of your building. By using a canopy to create a dry and protected area at your business’s entrance, you can provide greater comfort to customers and employees with extra shelter.
One of the first things that comes to mind when thinking about installing a bright and elegant new entrance canopy is the visible and impactful boost to the appearance of a property’s exterior. It’s definitely one of the main reasons that businesses become interested in having a new entrance canopy installed – who wouldn’t want to have a more attractive entrance to their business?
It’s all about curb appeal. Most buildings struggle to stand out from the rest. But if you can stand out, you have an opportunity to make a big and lasting impression on those potential customers and passers-by who wouldn’t otherwise look twice. It can be the difference between someone remembering your brand or not.
Adding an impressive and professional door canopy to your entrance elevates your property’s appearance above those of the surrounding buildings, helping persuade curious onlookers to pop into your business. And for those customers already on their way inside, a brilliant new porch canopy is a fantastic way of welcoming them inside.
As canopy experts here at A&S Landscape, no one is better placed to help you find the right canopy for your business. And there are a lot of options to choose from! Whether you have exact design aspirations, you want an entrance canopy of the highest quality, or you want something basic and cost-effective, we can help guide you to the right solution.
