Playground Canopies for Schools, Colleges and Universities

Lovingly installed and maintained by the longest running school equipment rental company

Create an outdoor workspace with an attractive playground canopy!

If you are looking to add more sheltered space to your school, a playground canopy or covered walkway is just what you need. The problem is, finding the budget to purchase a canopy isn’t always easy. We speak to schools every day who believe they have no choice but to either put the project on hold until budget has been secured, or to look at a more modest canopy solution, often nowhere near in line with the dream canopy that everyone in the school really wants!

So, we did what we do best and looked to solve these common problems which schools often face when looking to acquire a playground canopy or outdoor shelter, by offering a rental solution which enables schools and colleges to have an attractive, practical canopy installed, whilst spreading the cost of it over affordable rental payments. No more projects being put on hold, or canopy designs being compromised on! Our unique rental solution will help you get playground canopies and shelters which are designed to make the most out of your space, ultimately helping to make playgrounds accessible all year round.

Need a canopy for your school but struggling to fund it?…we make it easy!

      • Get the exact canopy that your school wants, without having to compromise on size or specification.
      • Full projects can be rented including elements such as installation, ongoing maintenance and any necessary groundwork.
      • Fully guaranteed for the full term of the rental.
      • No upfront capital outlay is required.

      • Easier, accurate budgeting as payments are fixed for the full term of the rental and are protected against inflation.

      • Simple and easy to understand rental documentation.
      • Flexible options at the end of the rental term to enable continued use of the canopy.

What the school says about us…

“We chose to use Utility Rentals to obtain a new canopy, as the flexible rental scheme attached with the canopy allowed us to be able to finance the project in a more manageable way for our budget. We were also really impressed by the various styles of canopies on offer.

We would definitely recommend Utility Rentals to other schools – for the quality of the canopy, the flexibility of the rental option, as well as the excellent onsite build!”
