Canopy Maintenance and Cleaning

Canopy Maintenance and Cleaning

During the Easter holidays Zenith carried out their annual canopy maintenance and cleaning service at several schools that have had canopies installed. 

It is very important to carry out an annual or biennial clean of canopies to ensure the canopies remain looking good. It also prolongs the life of the canopies as regular cleaning protects the lacquer on the PVC material.

As part of the service the integral gutters are emptied and cleaned. It is amazing how much debris can end up in the gutters from leaves, twigs and dirt to tennis balls, plastic water bottles and other objects. 

In addition, a full safety check of all fixtures and fittings is carried out. Furthermore we are happy to undertake the cleaning of canopies installed by other suppliers.

Zenith have been installing their Airone Maxline range of canopies in the UK for over 20 years and as a result of regular cleaning have not had to replace any yet due to degradation of material.

It makes sound financial sense to maintain your canopies on an annual or biennial basis and as well as one-off maintenance visits Zenith have various schemes available for contract cleans over one to five years.

Winnersh Primary School Canopy Club

The Children at Winnersh Primary School are now running a 'Canopy Club' during school lunch times.

The poster at the school advertising the 'Canopy Club' states:

  • Lots of stuff to do 
  • For any year
  • Games, word searches and FUN, FUN, FUN !! 

The 'Canopy Club' is an example of another innovative way in which schools are using canopies for outdoor play.

Since installing the canopy in July 2015 the school have used it for outdoor eating, a quiet area, the 'Canopy Club' and Christmas carol concerts.

The 9m x 9m Airone Max structure is manufactured in galvanised steel and powdercoated in the school colours. The eye catching canopy is manufactured from a high grade 100% waterproof PVC which also cuts out all harmful UV rays making this the ideal structure for covering larger playground spaces.

Playground Shelters - easy to fit during term time

Playground Shelters - easy to fit during term time

With only 2 weeks left of our busy school holiday canopy build schedule and orders already coming in for the October half term, we thought it may be of interest to some of our readers as to how we safely conduct a canopy installation during term time.

Did you Know ?.....

Most of our canopy installations only involve three days of site work.

By use of Herras temporary fencing our work area can be secured against unauthorised entry.

All of our staff are DBS checked and have undergone many internal safety training schemes.

We are members of CHAS and Constructionline safety schemes, ensuring all of our work is carried out safely.

We can even arrive on site before the pupils - this means we can be in our secure working area before they arrive.

We can, if required, carry out installations at weekends


How to organise a canopy installation for your school....

Please give us a call on 01189 789072 or contact us here and we will be happy to arrange a no obligation site visit to run through our product range with you to find the one that matches your needs best. Further to acceptance of a quotation from us we would re-visit the site to confirm all of the final details ; exact location, canopy colours, framework colours, installation program etc.. From date of order to installation is typically 4 - 6 weeks. For further information you may wish to visit our FAQ's page. For an overview of our products please take a look at our many schools pages.


We look forward to assisting you with your canopy project soon.
