Project – Large sail canopy creates shaded area at catholic school in Stafford
Product – Maxima Sail
Requirement – Blessed William Howard School in Stafford have been providing secondary education to the local community for 50 years. The large playground seed pupils run off steam and enjoy some relaxation at break and lunchtimes. There was one thing lacking though… shade from the sun.
Solution – Blessed William Howard School wanted to add a large area of shade and so they chose a shade sail canopy design. The sail was made of shade cloth, which offers UV protection but is not waterproof. It was a large size at 11700mm 7100mm x 7200mm, on 3 upright posts. Our Maxima range of products includes other designs of fabric roofed canopies such as the Umbrella, Tepee, StarSail which offer alternatives to the shade sail. The Steelwork was Grey (RAL 7000) and the fabric was Rivergum Green. A really smart combination that looks great.
Result – This design has delivered a large shaded space in the schoolyard, just as Blessed William Howard was hoping for. They may choose to add seating underneath to encourage students to enjoy some time underneath it. We were pleased to be able to work at the school and we are sure that the children will enjoy the canopy for many years to come.
