Yellow playground tepee at St John’s School in London
Yellow playground shelter at London school
St John’s is a Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust School for boys aged 3 to 13 years. This delightful London school, which encourages and nurtures all its students, was looking to add some shelter to their outdoor space.
There are many designs of school canopies. Steel and polycarbonate with multicoloured roofing, right through to fabric roofed canopies such as Umbrellas and Tepees. St John’s School chose the Tepee design at an overall size of 6000mm x 5400mm. In addition they added four post protector pads which are 1200mm high.
The resulting Tepee with Yellow fabric roofing (RAL 1021) and Blue steel (RAL 5015) makes a bold design statement on the campus. Children have additional protection with the addition of post pads to all uprights. Where there was no shelter there is now a new area which, because of the waterproof fabric, offers both shade from the sun’s UV rays and shelter from the rain. Somewhere new for the boys to enjoy some fresh air, regardless of what the weather has in store.
