Outdoor playground cover in Nottingham

Colour evokes emotion. And because we know this we know that a Motiva Linear can feel different depending on how it is treated.
Projec- Motiva Linear creates outdoor playground cover at College House Primary School
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Can a colour make you feel something?
The simple answer is yes. The principle of colours evoking emotion has been utilised everywhere from desktop wallpapers on computers to the colour of space in museums reflecting the mood of the work. Colour is evocative and yet we don’t often see quite enough bravery with it.
Not so when it comes to our own shelters, we’re always delighted to see the playful ways in which colour is implemented to turn our already beautiful outdoor playground canopies into something truly unique.
So when we suggested our Motiva Linear to create some outdoor shelter at College House Primary School, we wondered if we might see a little colour on display.
Solution – You’ll find Motiva Linears in many different colours across the country but we always love it when we see a splash of yellow being used. Working closely with GF Tomlinson we installed this Motiva Linear at 7000mm x 3000mm in a sunshine yellow throughout with Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in matching Dura-Coat™ finish.
A final addition of polycarbonate roofing in ‘Moondust’ set off the yellow beautifully and meant College House Primary School have a distinctive shelter that looks great all year round.
Result – Colour evokes emotion. And because we know this we know that a Motiva Linear can feel different depending on how it is treated.
The one we installed at College House Primary School is all about play. With a bold and bright yellow paintwork this outdoor rain canopy lends a gentle and imaginative edge to the campus and looks fun, rather than functional.
