Set Descending Direction

Canopy shelters are becoming a popular addition to commercial, residential, and educational builds, to make greater use of the outdoor space all year round.

There are many different types of external shelters, giving contractors and sub-contractors flexibility and choice for their project requirements. Such shelters include:

Bike shelters
Entrance canopies
Shelters for social spaces
Covered walkways
Buggy parking shelters
Classroom extensions or outdoor teaching areas
Smoking shelters
Shelters for solar shading

Street Furniture Direct are pleased to offer a wide range of shelters to sub-contractors and contractors. We understand the challenges when specifying and installing external shelters in build projects.

As a street furniture product, it is usually considered towards the end of a specification or procurement process, where value becomes a key influence in product selection. Often this results in sub-standard products being chosen in order to fit into budgets.

However, Street Furniture Direct offer a range of robust, stylish, hard-wearing canopy shelters that are cost-effective to suit a wide range of budgets. They are also available for delivery within 48 hours (depending on product selection and stock levels), and can be shipped directly to site.

Hennessy Shelters – 4m and 8m sizes

The Hennessy Shelter is the most popular external shelter here at Street Furniture Direct. It comes in two lengths of either 4m or 8m, depending on the space available and the requirements of your project.

As standard, it comes in 4m bays. And the modular design means you can easily extend the shelter in multiples of 4m. You are able to customise the finish, where it is available in a galvanised finish or any RAL colour (carries an additional cost).

For your convenience, if you require the Hennessy Shelter as cycle storage, you can order cycle stands easily at the same time – the Sheffield Toast Rack and Sheffield Cycle Stands are ideal and each 4 meter bay can securely accommodate 10 bicycles.

Torres Shelter

The Torres Shelter is a contemporary steel frame and timber external shelter. The slatted timber design offers excellent protection from the wind and rain.

It has a PET roof with guttering to the rear with one outlet to offer great drainage facilities, ensuring water runs off and away from the shelter.

Each Torres Shelter unit can provide cover for up to 8 bikes or alternatively can provide cover for scooters or motorbikes. The shelter is also a great option for a smoke/vape shelter, where you can add cigarette bins and seating from our range of street furniture.

As with our shelters, this product arrives flat-packed and will require experience to build and install. Appropriate groundworks and foundations must be prepared before installation. Contact our team for more information and installation guides.
