One of the first things that Kensington point to is ‘non-fragile status.’ This is due to HSE regulations designed to reduce the risk of somebody getting injured if they were onto fall onto the canopy.

Next up is ‘point loading,’ which makes sure that the right foundation sizes are being used.

Beyond the first couple of starting points on the checklist, other things to be mindful of include; fixed or free-standing, UV protection, durability, versatility, additional accessories and the canopy’s size and post positioning.
