Playground Canopy in Manchester
Posted on 13/02/2017
Working closely with St. Gilbert’s we installed a Motiva Linear at a size of 8000mm x 3600mm in green steelwork (RAL 6005) with matching Alu-Tuff box profile guttering in Dura-Coat finish.
Project – Motiva Linear creates playground canopy at St. Gilbert’s RC Primary School
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – There’s something heartwarming about seeing our shelters in-situ.
Because when you see a finished outdoor playground canopy you realise the real benefit isn’t the steelwork or polycarbonate roofing. It’s what goes on underneath it.
In just the same way that a house isn’t a home until people make it their own, our shelters really only come to life when they’re being used to their full potential.
When St. Gilbert’s RC Primary School contacted A&S Landscape it was to add an outdoor shelter to their playground area, giving them space to store some of their outdoor play equipment securely whilst also offering a space to break out into, even if it’s raining.
Solution – Working closely with St. Gilbert’s we installed a Motiva Linear at a size of 8000mm x 3600mm in green steelwork (RAL 6005) with matching Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in Dura-Coat™ finish.
Whilst this provided the shelter, a Motiva Linear remains open until you add some walls! We added Roller Shutter doors to the front of the shelter that means St. Gilbert’s have a robust storage area that allows them to securely lock up play equipment at night.
Result – The result is a smart, secure and attractive space for children to play and learn. The addition of roller shutter doors means their equipment is safe and the shelter itself allows play throughout the year.
But more than this, the shelter we provided is no longer an A&S Landscape shelter, it has taken on a more personal identity as the home for St. Gilbert’s and it’s students.
Find Out More – We provide the shelter, you turn it into something amazing and if you want that ‘amazing’ to be secure then we have options that allow you to add roller shutter doors to your canopy that will make sure your equipment is totally safe!
