Straight Roof Canopies
Our Motiva Linear™ is one of our longest-standing products, much loved, this straight-talking canopy offers exceptional protection from the elements, whether it’s too hot, too wet or too snowy, the Motiva Linear™ has got you covered.
Benefiting from a monopitch (asymmetric) design, it has one high point and one low point meaning it can nestle comfortably against any building to extend classroom space, create a sheltered area for queuing or act as a covered walkway offering protection between buildings. It also works equally as well in an open plan area to act as a dining canopy, outdoor learning space or simply to add some shelter to a covered seating area.
Available with an Opal or Clear polycarbonate as standard, there is an option to add a coloured roof to increase the wow factor – the rainbow hues add a splash of colour on a dreary day and create a magical fairy-tale glow when the sun does come out to play. The robust and hard-wearing solid steel frame is available in any RAL colour meaning we can match to an existing building or even the exact colour of your school uniform.
For enhanced protection against slips and trips, the canopy posts can be cantilevered or we can provide colourful post protector pads.
The clever, modular design of our Motiva Linear™ means we can design and manufacture it in any size and our range of waterproof side panels can enclose the space to offer increased security and outdoor storage space.

Millbrook Primary School in Telford Create Covered Play Space with Straight Roof Canopy
Millbrook Primary School already knew that they needed good covered space in their playgrounds, to allow children to play outdoors during their breaks. They wanted to keep the rain off them when they were outside, so outside play was always viable. They already had some linear canopies, but they weren’t large enough to create a real covered space. That’s where we came in. We provided a large Motiva Linear canopy, a range of straight roof canopies that could offer them everything they needed. This includes a wide play space and a wide span canopy that requires fewer supports. This makes the canopy safer, so children can run freely as needed. The school love their new canopy. Their choice of a freestanding canopy as opposed to lean to canopies means that they have a playground that’s truly usable in all weathers.

They saw our multicoloured Motiva Linear option and knew it was for them. These straight roof canopies are perfect for keeping the rain off both children and parents when they use the playground. The lean to canopies have made the playground much more useable, making life at the school a lot more fun.

New Straight Roof Covered Walkway For Lime Tree Primary School in Surrey
The Lime Tree Primary School building is a wonderful modern site, but there was one problem students found with it. With the access to a lot of classrooms being outdoors, they were getting wet as the moved around in the rain. There needed to be a better solution, so the school reached out to us to see what we could do. With our help, the school decided on a Motiva Linear canopy, to create lean to canopies against the building. These straight roof canopies offer a lot of benefits, mostly that now everyone can move from room to room without getting wet when the weather was bad. Another benefit was that parents can now stand out of the rain when they come to pick up their children, something they couldn’t do before without the linear canopies.

Our Featured Straight Roof Canopy Project
Whitecross High School in Herefordshire add Covered Dining Area
What was the project brief?
Due to a period of growth and a consequential influx of students, Whitecross High School required additional space to use at lunch and break times. This was a necessary addition to ensure that the school was adhering to all obligatory health and safety requirements, and so that the students could sit and eat comfortably. They realised that a good option was to explore outdoor canopy solutions. They didn’t have an exact design they wanted in mind, so that’s when they called in A&S Landscape, who gave their assistance throughout the entire process from start to finish. The school had very specific requirements about what they had envisioned for the new covered area. It looked as though to meet this need a bespoke design would offer the solution.
What was our canopy solution?
Although we offer a wide range of canopies from our standard range, the school needed something more flexible to meet their special requirements. We therefore suggested that a Bespoke Motiva canopy would provide the all-round better solution. The straight roof shelter (also known as a linear canopy) was built with a strong steel frame and a polycarbonate roof covering. The clever opal roof design allows for natural light to pass through while providing essential protection against harmful UV rays. To add a modern touch, the school stylishly chose an Iron Grey RAL colour for the framework to fit with the surrounding environment. It was an amazing looking structure.
The unique modifications didn’t stop there, this versatile straight roof canopy included glass side panels and lighting, all sourced by A&S Landscape. All of our standard and bespoke canopies are of an extremely high standard, have great durability and with their ability to diverge from the norm, allow for the perfect design.
What was the result of their new bespoke straight roof canopy?
The students of Whitecross High School love the new shelter. We have been given many complimentary remarks from the school, who have told us that the students prefer the new dining area over the existing one. The school are relieved that they did not have to build a costly extension in order to house all the new students and that we were able to meet their exact specification with a cost-effective solution.
Health and Safety concerns are no longer a worry, and what’s more, is that the students are able to enjoy quality time in the fresh air all year round with guaranteed weather protection. The straight roof canopy clearly is a great addition to the campus, making the whole area a better place for everyone.

Why invest in a straight roof canopy?
There are numerous advantages to making an investment in a straight roof shelter. Even our standard Motiva Linear™ canopy is considered highly flexible. Although there are standard lengths, the linear function allows for custom widths on your overall size. A coloured roof can be added which when infiltrated by the sunlight creates colourful patterns on the floor, great for adding a unique style to your learning environment. They can be freestanding or mounted to an existing building with wall brackets, which means they make perfect covered walkways, outside classrooms or as waiting areas for parents.
The performance characteristics of these canopies are second to none. The added benefit of the asymmetric linear function of the roof is that excess rainwater can easily run off the sides. With a basic frame of solid steel, they are sturdy canopy structures that will be long-lasting, provide the ultimate protection and benefit the children who attend the school for years to come. They are even suitable for hospitality sites too, the stylish addition of a coloured roof can become the focal point of an outside terrace!
