Playground shade sails in Warwickshire
Posted on 13/02/2017
Middlemarch Junior School wanted to make sure its students had excellent access to the outdoors so when they contacted A&S Landscape it wasn’t to add a single shelter, it was to add three.
Project – Maxima Shade Sail creates playground shade at Middlemarch Junior School
Requirement – Natural light and fresh air can have an instant impact on our mood.
From a change in the environment around us acting as a wake up call, to the many recorded benefits of natural light on levels of anxiety, spending time outdoors isn’t a luxury.
It’s a necessity.
But as long as our ability to spend time outside is not in our control we may not be able to get the levels of natural light and fresh air we really need.
Which is exactly where a quality outdoor playground canopy comes in, providing a shelter from poor weather and meaning children can spend more time outside all year round.
Middlemarch Junior School in Warwickshire wanted to make sure its students had excellent access to the outdoors so when they contacted A&S Landscape it wasn’t to add a single shelter, it was to add three.
Solution – Working closely with Middlemarch we installed a Motiva Linear at 6700mm x 2000mm and another at 7200mm x 2000mm whilst also providing replacement polycarbonate roofing for an existing shelter. The colours chosen for the polycarbonate roofing were Foxglove, Daffodil, Mandarin, Lagoon and Mint and work together beautifully.
Not wanting to finish there, Middlemarch also requested a Maxima Shade Sail at 6000mm x 6000mm with 3 triangle sales in Cherry Red, Yellow and Brunswick Green.
Result – The result is more time outdoors than ever before. With shade from direct sunlight and cover from the rain, students at Middlemarch now have more access to their playground all year round.
Find Out More – Spending quality time outside is very important for our health. We all feel the drain when we don’t get enough natural sunlight and without changing scenery regularly our mind can get into somewhat of a rut.
Outdoor school canopies offer year round protection from the weather that makes playing outdoor more viable. So if you’re looking to increase your outdoor facilities takes a look at our gallery of finished projects here to get some ideas!
