New School Shelters in Essex
Posted on 01/08/2017
Two Motiva Cantilever canopies were added to create entrance canopies to two classroom doors into the playground area. They were finished with brightly coloured post pads.
Project – Bedfont Primary school regenerates outdoor area with playground canopies
Requirement – Bedfont Primary is a larger than average primary school, situated close to Heathrow Airport, which now says on its website “We have excellent facilities both inside and outdoors.” The requirement was to reinvigorate the play area, to provide shade and shelter in two distinct areas.
Solution – Two Motiva Cantilever canopies were added to create entrance canopies to two classroom doors into the playground area. They were finished with brightly coloured post pads.
A second style of canopy was the Maxima Sail, which was added to the raised grass area. This made a defined area under which the children can enjoy shade from the sunshine and perhaps some lessons or stories outside in the fresh air. A&S Landscape offers 16 colour options for our shade cloth fabric, which can be seen here on our website.
Result – The results are two-fold at Bedfont Primary. The children can now shelter as they make their way in and out of the classrooms. In addition, they can enjoy some shaded time under the Cherry Red Sail, meaning they are protected from the suns UV rays on the hotter days of the year. This is a lovely new space, with a definite purpose and a smart design which adds to the school playground. The striking Sail will shade the children for many years to come.
