A&S Landscape designed, manufactured and installed a straight roof shelter for the academy. The Motiva Linear™ measures a total of 15m X 3m, so there is plenty of room underneath for several students to line up. The Slate Grey guttering works well with the subtle Basalt Grey steelwork used on the canopy. The clear polycarbonate roofing also allows some sunlight through while blocking harmful UV rays.
The sleek and modern looking shelter works perfectly with the surrounding buildings and outside space. During lunch and break times, the students can wait under the cover while they queue to enter the dining hall. We’re sure this will be greatly appreciated during the winter months! Abbey Grange Church of England Academy was so happy with the project that they rated us five stars.
We have a wide range of school canopies which can be made to your exact requirements. From dining area shelters to covered walkways, we can transform your outdoor space. Take a look at our extensive product gallery for inspiration or get in touch with us today on 01743 444100.
And the thing with a great outdoor shelter is that it is flexible, it does a simple job very well and means you can use it for a variety of things. Whether you’re in need of an outdoor dining canopy or else some playing field shade there will be a solution for you. When A&S Landscape received a call, it was to add just such a shelter at West Oaks.
We installed a range of Motiva Linear™ canopies in a stacked, overlapping design in sizes from 16700mm x 3000mm to 22900mm x 4000mm. Each one was finished with Mid Blue (RAL 5010) paintwork and there were 21 post pads included overall. The result is a smart, attractive and functional series of outdoor shelters, providing some respite from the rain whilst also offering a little shade with opal polycarbonate roofing.
Whatever kind of shelter you’re looking for, we have an option for you. From our flexible Motiva Linear™, which can be used as an entrance canopy or playground shelter all the way to our Maxima range with its free-flowing lines of the StarSail to a more rigid Maxima Tepee™ which makes for an outstanding external dining canopy.

When A&S Landscape was contacted by the school, they were happy to talk through their range of canopy solutions. The school decided to go with a Motiva Duo™, curved roof canopy for one of their outdoor areas. The canopy was installed in Moss Green (RAL 6005) steelwork, with opal polycarbonate roofing. It spanned an area of 6100mm x 6000mm. The area also benefited from 37 meter square of rubber surfacing as well as plastic fencing which has enclosed three sides of the canopy.
The resulting area has added a new usable space to the school. It not only offers shelter from the wet weather but also shade in the sunnier months of the year. The children, as well as teachers and visitors, enjoy the new part of the playground. The comments about it have been very positive we are glad to hear! Improving access to outdoor play and learning can only be a good thing and has shown to improve pupil concentration when pupils are back in lessons.
A&S Landscape has an extensive range of canopies, all offering amazing benefits, from retractable canopies to garden shades. Our gallery contains over a thousand pictures of our work and you can view them online for some inspiration.
A&S Landscape was asked to install a series of Motiva Linear™ canopies at Guiseley Primary School. But these canopies wouldn’t just serve a specific purpose, they were also going to add a little spark of magic at the same time. We installed a series of canopies from 2000mm x 1000mm up to 7200mm x 3600mm which included some really gorgeous colour combinations.
Each Motiva Linear™ was finished in a smart Slate Grey (RAL 7015) but the roofing is where the magic really happened. From a couple of canopies with understated Moondust roofing, we also installed a canopy with Rainbow polycarbonate roofing and another with a gorgeous combination of Poppy and Mandarin. As you can see, when the light catches these colours it gives the same effect as a stained glass window refracting the light from a rising sun. The addition of playful coloured polycarbonate roofing adds a really whimsical edge to these canopies. Whether it’s a beautiful summers day or even the depths of winter, just the smallest amount of light will cast a gentle coloured tapestry on the floor below.
Playing with colour can make your outdoor shelter into something really stunning and our full range of polycarbonate roofing colours should give you a few ideas about what you can do. Take a look online. And if you are ready to start planning your own masterpiece then get in touch with our design team and we can have a full proposal with you the very next day.
A&S Landscape installed a Motiva Linear™ canopy to a size of 9500mm x 2700mm, with Blue RAL 5002 steelwork and Alu-Tuff™ (aluminium box profile) guttering and downpipes in matching Dura-coat™ colour finish. The roof was opal polycarbonate.
The result is a new area for the children of Broomfield to use, whether as an outside learning space or as a new environment in which to have some time out or space to become calm. The importance of additional areas for children with additional needs is key. Sometimes the classroom can overstimulate children who may require some time to process and take stock. Now Broomfield has another area at their disposal which is sheltered from the elements.

We’ve talked about this before, but design isn’t just about getting a job done, it’s also about the intangible. How a space feels makes a difference to how you behave within it.
By re-energising a space, we can instantly create an additional outdoor learning and play area and that is just a little bit magic. That’s right, magic. Because the intangible has that quality. Whilst you may see a robust and attractive play space, what you get is something else entirely.
By adding a Motiva Linear™ school playground canopy with bright, colourful fencing, we were able to kick this outdoor space into life. The Motiva Linear™ was installed in a professional green steelwork with additional fencing in a range of playful colours. Together, the smart Motiva Linear™ canopy and bright, playful fencing provide a sheltered area where the children are secure and can learn and play all year round in the fresh air.
But more than that, think back to the last time you were in a space that inspired you. The result of good design, especially design that has personality is that what you are left with is more than the steelwork, more than the polycarbonate roofing and more than the fencing too. It’s the invisible ‘in-between’ that can make you feel excited, energised and ready for fun and positive learning.
When planning a space, always ask yourself how you want that space to feel and how you want the people who use it to feel as well. If there’s a space around campus that you feel could do with a new lease of life, we can help with that. Some spaces simply stop working when they’re left to fall into disrepair but the addition of new, vibrant outdoor shelters and canopies can reinvigorate them.
