About us

Outside Structure Solutions was started in 2008 at the start of a recession. We have developed the business to provide a range of high-quality shade and shelter products which reflect our passion for the canopy industry.

We are proud to be one of the longest-serving Gibus Atelier in the UK. This is a factory-approval scheme for suppliers and installers. These products highlight the best Italian high-end design and calibre.

We are also dealers for Giulio Barbieri who are another high quality Italian manufacturer. They design superb structures which are very popular with our landscape design partners.

In 2017 Outside Structure Solutions became a part of the APPS UK Group. This is a very exciting partnership which is allowing us to grow and expand our product ranges whilst still keeping quality and honesty at the heart of everything we do.
