With over 27 years of experience in commercial catering industry we have a great understanding of how kitchens should be set up and run.

We are here to help you design the system that fits both your budget and requirements, giving you the perfect kitchen.

We will help you in areas that often get overlooked and ensure you meet all the safety and function needs of your kitchen. We have even prepared a self MEASUREMENT guide and SIMPLIFIED VENTILATION guide that is tailored to the industry.

Highly recommended by our customers, we provide the highest professional service and products, either pre-manufactured or bespoke to your exact requirements.

When CanopyUk designs canopies we prioritise three things – Product Quality, Performance and Aesthetics.

Product Quality

All our canopies are manufactured in a quality controlled factory environment so we can make sure that the correct stainless steel is being used and no edges are left sharp. All parts to our products meet a high standard and are in accordance with governing bodies guidelines.


Here at CanopyUk, when designing a canopy system, our project team will work alongside the client from start to completion to ensure that the system works well. We look at several points when a member of our team visits your site: plans on what you will be cooking, the capacity of the equipment and any further plans you might have for future expansion.

With this information this gives us an idea on what size canopy and type of fan you will require and how to plan the system. We pride ourselves on installing systems that work.


As a lot of kitchens are now open plan and your customers can see into the kitchen area, it has to be impressive. In the case of takeaways as an example, often the steel cladding matches the canopy. You will need it to look good as well as perform.

At CanopyUk we guarantee we meet all of the three above requirements
