Playground shelter brightens Pennyhill Primary School in West Midlands
Bright yellow tepee canopy brings shade to pupils at West Midlands school
Pennyhill Primary School were keen to add some shade and shelter to their playground so that the children could be outdoors right through the year. Perhaps the odd lesson could take place outdoors if they have a shaded area which also offered shelter if the heavens opened?
A&S Landscape have more than 40 years’ experience delivering projects of this kind. We work with schools across the country to transform their outside areas and enhance opportunities for outdoor learning and play. We can install canopies during holidays or during term time and our teams all have the requisite experience and permissions.
There are many canopy products on the market, from steel and polycarbonate structures, to those with fabric roofing. Pennyhill Primary chose a Tepee canopy from our Maxima range. It was installed at 7000mm x 7000mm with post protectors and waterproof PVC fabric, offering all year round shelter. The fabric was Yellow (RAL 1021) and the steelwork was Light Blue (RAL 5015).
The resulting canopy has brought a new space to the playground which the children can use to relax, learn, socialise and enjoy shade and shelter.
