Blue Tepee canopy at primary school in Stafford
Marshbrook First School in Stafford add Tepee canopy
Shade from the sun and shelter from the rain. Those were the two requirements from Marshbrook First School in Stafford. With all those precious children to take care of, they wanted to ensure that their playground offered the children protection from the elements whilst they were enjoying their break times and lunchtimes outdoors. A school canopy seemed the perfect solution, but with so many design options where should they start? …
The school decided to opt for a fabric canopy from the Maxima range. The Tepee shelter that they chose has four uprights and a fabric top. This one has PVC fabric which protects from UV and rain, so it really is an all year round solution. The canopy measures 5m x 5m and on to each post they put a post protector in yellow, just to complete the bright sunny design. The Blue (RAL 5002) PVC fabric against the yellow post pads really does look great, no wonder the children are so happy at play time!
The new Tepee is a real hit with the kids, they love spending time outdoors even more now. Be it glaring sunshine or a spot of drizzle, the children have shade and shelter to enjoy. What a lovely addition to the playground.
