Covered Playground Areas at Glenwood School in Essex
Posted on 07/02/2020
Glenwood School wanted their pupils to be able to use the playground more often, so they could spend more time outside. A&S Landscape worked with the school to design a range of stylish, yet practical shade sails.
Project – Glenwood School add shade sails to playground in Essex
Product – Maxima Sail
Requirement – Glenwood School in Benfleet, Essex wanted to get more use of out of their fantastic facilities. The staff decided to add a set of shade sails to the playground, so the outdoor space could still be used in poor weather conditions. The teachers wanted the sails to be colourful, to encourage the pupils to play underneath.
Solution – A&S Landscape installed a total of nine Maxima Sail structures in multiple areas of the school grounds. The fabrics were finished in a range of colours, including Mid Blue, Red and Bright Yellow. Each structure also featured post pads, to help protect the pupils from the steel posts.
Result – Everyone at Glenwood School loves the new canopies and they have transformed the playgrounds. Now break times can be enjoyed outside, no matter the conditions. Teachers can also hold lessons outside, under the sails, providing an alternative learning environment. Parents could even wait under the shades at the end of the school day.
