Playground Shelter in Birmingham

Posted on 13/02/2017

St Annes Catholic School
When St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School in Birmingham decided to install a playground canopy extension they called in A&S Landscape to have it covered.

Project – Motiva Cantilever creates playground shelter at St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School

Product – Motiva Cantilever

Requirement – Isn’t it a shame when rain stops play.

Those first few drops of rain landing on the playground and the disappointed faces that know it’s time to ‘come inside’.

We know that we can’t control the weather, yet (we’re still working on the patent for our remote control), so what else can we do?

As it turns out, the simplest solution is often the right one. We might not be able to stop the rain from falling but we can certainly make sure it doesn’t have to stop play.

A playground canopy gives you protection from the elements and means that children can continue to play and learn the whole year round, giving them incredible access to fresh air, natural light and free flow play.

So when St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School in Birmingham decided to install a playground canopy extension they called in A&S Landscape to have it covered.

Solution – We installed a Motiva Cantilever curved roof canopy at 6500mm x 3500mm, with Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering and downpipes, all in Dura-Coat™ smart green steelwork (RAL 6002) with high, wide and effective post protectors in matching green to protect little warriors from bumps and scrapes.

Result – The result is a playground brought back into action on even the rainiest of days and a shelter that will last St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School for many years.

This Motiva Cantilever will protect from the rain and provide outdoor access all year round meaning rain never needs to stop play again.
