Outdoor playground canopies are a wonderful solution to the problem of unpredictable weather, giving a strong, robust and long-lasting shelter that protects from the weather and offers that little extra protection when you need it most. Blackpool Aspire Academy were looking for just such a canopy and called in A&S Landscape to help out.
Installing a Motiva Linear™ monopitch straight roof canopy has had an instant impact at Blackpool Aspire Academy. At a size of 38000mm x 6000mm it covers a large area and the Signal Green steelwork and Alu Tuff guttering (RAL 6032) mean it looks fantastic. The opal roofing keeps the rain off but also protects from direct sunlight and means this shelter is useful all year round. The result is a stunning and long-lasting outdoor playground straight roof canopy that provides year-round, all weather shelter and means that students at Blackpool Aspire Academy have somewhere to hide from the elements without having to stay indoors, away from the fresh air.
Whether you’re looking to add some weatherproof playground shelters or an outdoor dining area canopy, or even some entrance canopies, A&S Landscape have a host of solutions for you. For inspiration have a look at our gallery pages here and when you’re ready get in touch with our design team who can have a proposal with you for your review.
A&S Landscape has been working with schools for more than 40 years, helping to add the right canopy to playgrounds up and down the country. We have a wide range of canopies, from fabric to steel and polycarbonate, so we knew that we had something to fit the bill at Fulwood St Peters CE Primary School.
Our Maxima range includes the shade sail which is available in shade cloth and waterproof fabrics. The shade cloth fabric was selected and installed in a smart Aquatic Blue colour. All our colours can be seen on our colours page if you are looking for some inspiration. The result is a smart new playground shade canopy, which does exactly what we had planned. The children now have shade in their outside area. The school now have somewhere to store their play equipment and for the children to get some fresh air, shaded from the sunshine. A lovely bright statement in the playground! The shade canopy looks striking and completes the area beautifully whilst keeping the children safe and happy in all weathers.
Fulwood St Peter’s Primary School now have an additional area outside where children can play and socialise. It can also be used for outdoor learning, working towards to recognised Ofsted criteria of learning outside the classroom. Everyone is happy.
From Shade Sails, Umbrellas and Tepees, to straight or curved roof steel canopies, A&S Landscape have a range which is sure to offer you something special. Feel free to look through our gallery, which has more than 1000 images to inspire you.

We created a cycle store in Fairfield Primary School Peelhouse Lane, Widnes, Lancashire. The full contract involved one Cyclo ‘Bike’ cycle store unit measuring 4200mm x 2400mm, which included for 5 cycle racks to accommodate 10 cycles with mesh panels to rear/side elevations and gates to front.
An outdoor playground canopy will extend the reach of a classroom by offering shelter from the rain that makes it accessible all-year-round. There are also certain types of activities that benefit from being run outdoors, from messy artwork to loud and entertaining music sessions. So when A&S Landscape was contacted to install some outdoor shelter at Weeton County Primary School we knew the impact it would have.
Installing generous outdoor shelters to three elevations at Weeton County Primary School meant that several classrooms were extended to have useable outdoor space. Installing Motiva Linears™ in a range of sizes, from 2870mm x 2000mm to 33700mm x 4000mm, we finished each shelter in white steelwork (RAL 9016) with Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in matching Dura-Coat™ paintwork. Opal roofing also means that direct sunlight is cut down, helping with temperature control in the classrooms during the summer.
The result is space. Space that already existed but has been repurposed to offer a useable option all year round. This gives Weeton County Primary School the opportunity to run a whole host of sessions that might have been difficult to run in the past and makes sure their children can spend more time outside in the fresh air, whatever the weather.
