Playground Canopy in West Midlands
Posted on 22/07/2017
Jesson’s Primary School in Dudley, West Midlands was looking for a long canopy to run across the outside of their classrooms.
Project – School shelter with side panels in Dudley
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Jesson’s Primary School in Dudley, West Midlands was looking for a long canopy to run across the outside of their classrooms. The required canopy would offer shelter to three external doorways as well as protecting the rooms inside from the direct glare of the sun on warmer days, thus helping to moderate the inside temperature.
Solution – A&S Landscape offers a wide range of canopy solutions, from shade sails and tepees to linear canopies with polycarbonate roofing. It was decided that the Motiva Linear product would be most appropriate for this requirement. We installed the canopy at 23180 x 4000mm, with glazed panels to the side elevations. All steelwork was in grey (RAL 7000) and the roofing in Opal polycarbonate.
Result – This very long canopy stretches along the entire length of the school wall, offering shade and shelter to the classrooms inside. The doorways were also sheltered meaning that children no longer had to queue to get into the building, subjected to the elements! This new space also offers the option to learn, play and socialise outside in the newly created space. With growing pupil numbers, space is at a premium in a lot of schools. This canopy has added a really smart option to create more space at Jesson’s Primary School, without the need for a building extension. Perfect!
