The Spring Centre in Gloucestershire Installs Multicoloured Playground Canopy
The requirements from The Spring Centre were very straightforward, they wanted to install a playground canopy large enough so that it would enable continuous outside play without any bad weather interruption. Additionally, they requested a welcoming design that would add a splash of colour and bring some vibrancy to their outdoor area. After thorough discussions with A&S Landscape, the school agreed that our popular Motiva Linear™ would be a good fit for their facility, with its modern and efficient design. Paired with a multicoloured roof and Gentian Blue steelwork was hugely exciting for the school. It has certainly brought a smile on the pupils’ faces, finally giving them the shelter they thoroughly deserve. They can now enjoy outdoor play throughout the year – with no weather worries.

Two Multicoloured Polycarbonate Canopies Made for The Bridge School in Ipswich
As part of the development of the new North Campus site, The Bridge School installed two straight roof playground canopies. As the perfect finishing touch, the shelters were complete with multicoloured polycarbonate roofing sheets, using the colours Foxglove, Poppy, Daffodil, Mandarin and Mint. This will create plenty of covered outdoor space for the pupils to use during their break times, as they let off steam and refresh ahead of their next lessons. It’s always great to see schools investing in their outdoor spaces as there are so many benefits to playing outside for young children. Outdoor play equipment can also be stored under the shelters, saving valuable storage space inside the buildings. In the future, side panels could also be added to the canopy to create an enclosed space. Read more about the colourful canopies at The Bridge School here.
Rainbow Coloured Playground Canopy for St. Mary’s C of E Primary School in Yorkshire
The early years playground at St. Mary’s Church Of England Primary School was already a fun place to be, with beautiful murals painted on the walls. The problem was that it couldn’t be enjoyed when the weather was wet. The school wanted something that would cover the playground and make it useable in bad weather, but they wanted something eye-catching, too. When they came to us, they chose to get a Motiva Linear canopy installed. This offered them lots of benefits, as it creates a dry space on the playground that pupils can enjoy. No more being stuck indoors when it rains, they can run and play as much as they like. The canopy is certainly a statement piece too, featuring a coloured polycarbonate canopy. This lets light stream through and creates patterns on the ground, making the playground even more inviting.

Multicoloured Shelter Creates All-Weather Playground at Oundle C of E Primary School in Peterborough
Oundle C of E Primary School has an admirable policy, where they always consider the needs of their pupils first. If they make any changes the first question asked is ‘will this benefit the children here?’ This extends to the design of the school building itself. That’s why they were considering a canopy for their playground, as it would allow the children to get out and play, even when it’s raining. They didn’t want their pupils to be cooped up indoors. They came to us looking for the best solution for their playground. They decided on a Motiva Linear for the playground, as it was a great way to protect the area from rain. Now children can use their playground whenever they want, even when it’s raining. The school also chose a fun colour scheme, using yellow, mint green and grey polycarbonate to create a modern and exciting look.

Colourful Polycarbonate Canopy for Djanogly Northgate Academy in Nottingham
There are so many things to keep in mind when designing school grounds. They need to be functional, so every student gets the best learning experience there. However, they also need to be bright and fun in order to make the property welcoming for all. Djanogly Northgate Academy knows this, and that’s what they kept in mind when designing a new outdoor seating area. They asked us to design a Motiva Linear canopy that would shelter students when they’re outdoors on breaks, but also bring some colour to the area. Using coloured polycarbonate, the multicoloured roof lets light through and looks wonderful on sunny days. The shelter has been a big hit at the school, allowing students to enjoy the grounds even on days when the weather isn’t at its best. See more about the multicoloured straight roof shelter at Djanogly Northgate Academy.
Riverside School in Yorkshire Update Playground with Multicoloured Shelters
Riverside School has an excellent playground, which the pupils love to play in when the weather is good. The problem is that when it rains, they’re not able to get outside. It’s less than ideal, as wet play doesn’t allow the children to blow off steam like they can normally. The school wanted to find a solution, so they looked into building coloured polycarbonate canopies on site. They chose two different canopies, a Maxima Linear canopy, and a Maxima Sail. These both offer shelter from the rain, so pupils no longer have to stay indoors when the weather is wet. It makes break times a lot more fun all round. The red and blue polycarbonate in the Linear canopy adds a lovely visual touch to the school, too. When the sun shines through it, it creates attractive patterns on the ground which is just the icing on the cake.

Our Featured Multicoloured Canopy Project
Ysgol Bro Teifi in Wales Add Coloured Polycarbonate Roof Canopies
What was the project brief?
Ysgol Bro Teifi, an all-through ‘super’ school located in the town of Dyfed, Wales, was officially opened for the academic year of 2016/17. Five schools were merged to create this new centre, Ysgol Dyffryn Teifi, Aberbanc, Coedybryn, Llandysul, and Pontsian, and is the biggest ever building commissioned by Ceredigion County Council. To accommodate the 1,000 primary and secondary school children who were to attend, the project involved the construction of an impressive two-storey 11200m² facility.
Embarking on such a large-scale project, the school and the county council knew that the site needed to include outdoor areas that were accessible all year round. This is when the council approached A&S Landscape to supply and install a multitude of canopies. The council detailed exactly where they wanted the canopies located on the site map, with a number of specification details. It was necessary for the shelters to be made from weatherproof materials, to offer perfect protection from all types of weather throughout the year, but they also needed to appeal to the children that would be using them.
What was our canopy solution?
All of the canopies installed at the school grounds were from our Motiva Linear range. The frames are made of steel, a great material for a sturdy shelter, and finished in Grey RAL 7000. We topped the canopies with multicoloured polycarbonate roofing sheets, that with light transmission from the sun, create a rainbow effect on the floor. The school chose the following colours for their roofs on the shelters, Daffodil, Foxglove, Lagoon, Mandarin and Poppy. With a large range of colours available for the polycarbonate sheeting, the school had a wide choice.
The impact-resistant polycarbonate roof sheets have a straight roof, asymmetric design (where one side is slightly higher than the other, also known as monopitch). This means that water can efficiently run off the lower side of the roof, providing perfect protection from the weather. There are numerous uses that these shelters are practical for, two examples include covered walkways and dining shelters. The application standard for these types of shelter is against a wall (like here at Ysgol Bro Teifi), but they are also a great choice for a freestanding structure. Whichever configuration is chosen, as a physical structure they have high impact strength.
What was the result of the new shelters?
The canopies looked marvellous against the existing buildings of the school grounds, giving the outdoor areas a vibrant upgrade. The colourful polycarbonate roof sheets allow for a high percentage of light transmission to create a vivid pattern on the floor, which are particularly enjoyed by the primary children who are fascinated with the colours. The canopy structures really help to create a fun and exciting learning environment for all ages, enhancing their learning experience.
With our help, the school have been able to ensure that the school has a considerable amount of outdoor space available to the children all year round. It provides a safe environment even when it’s raining for the children to learn, play and explore the outdoors. The shelters also control internal temperatures, giving excellent comfort for the lessons taught inside. These canopies are just another amazing addition to the students’ already-great experience at Ysgol Bro Teifi. Both the staff and the children are extremely happy with the several new additions.
About the client
Ysgol Bro Teifi, Dyfed is located in the South West of Wales. Newly built for the academic year 2016-17, it was the result of a large-scale merger project for the county council. The school teaches children all the way through from early year settings up to the end of secondary school. They promise a new and exciting journey, and a colourful one too thanks to the new canopies, for each student who takes up education with them. Take a look at the Ysgol Bro Teifi website, which features one of the shelters we installed.
We were thrilled to work on this project alongside the school and county council. It was a pleasure to work on such a large-scale project with the various teams involved, who were all friendly and demonstrated excellent responsiveness. We are glad to have supplied them with a selection of canopies with excellent durability, that will undoubtedly serve them for a long time.
Why choose a coloured polycarbonate canopy for your school?
As the primary construction material of the roof, polycarbonate has excellent weather-resistant qualities, that provide perfect protection from all types of weather. In fact, they offer the unique durability of being virtually unbreakable. They are easy to maintain and clean, so even long after the installation, you can enjoy a great quality canopy.
Due to their extreme versatility, there are several possible uses for these shelters one of the most popular being a playground shelter. Widths of 10000mm easily achieved, and with additional design features, these widths can be extended further still. This means that as an outdoor canopy, they can fit almost any dimension.
Another unique quirk of the roof covering is all of the available colour options. This makes them the perfect addition to primary school environments. There are many positive impacts colours can have on the development of young children in early year settings, with the different colours helping to stimulate different attention levels. The colour tinted panels allow you to create the sort of environment that will benefit the children, or you could even brand it in school colours.
With the huge range of benefits to offer and their high-performance value, these shelters are a fair price and great value. What are you waiting for? Add some colour to your campus!

Colourful Straight Roof Shelter Installed at The Hall School in Glenfield
Most schools are looking for ways to use their space to the fullest, and The Hall School are no exception. They had a bare space between two classrooms that wasn’t being used for anything, which seemed to be a waste. The school wanted their pupils to be able to enjoy the space in all weathers, so they contacted us.

This makes it useable in all weathers, and teachers can now teach outdoors if they so choose, changing up the school day.

In order to allow the children to spend more time outside, it was decided to install a canopy in the playground which would create covered space. To encourage the young pupils to play under the shelter, a multicoloured polycarbonate roof was used.

Multicoloured Straight Canopy at Wyndcliffe Primary School in Birmingham
Wyndcliffe Primary School had unused space on their grounds that they wanted to make available to their pupils during the school day. The problem was, it was too exposed and so it wasn’t useable in wet weather. They wanted to allow pupils to play in wet weather and give teachers the opportunity to teach outside, so they knew they needed something to cover the space. They came to us looking for a solution to this space. They chose a Motiva Linear as it offered them several different benefits. Firstly, it allowed them to cover the space and allow children out to play. The space could be used for lessons, and parents could even shelter beneath it when waiting for their children at home time. They also decided to use several different colours in the roof of the canopy, using grey, orange and yellow polycarbonate. It makes the area much brighter and more exciting.
