Ashcott Playing Fields in North Somerset Add Fabric Umbrella Canopy

  • Size: 4000mm X 4000mm
  • Steelwork:
    • Slate Grey - RAL NO. 7015

  • Fabric:
    • Spruce

Maxima Umbrella™

Ashcott Playing Fields has plenty of great play equipment and changing facilities for sports teams. However, the fields were lacking an area of shade and shelter which would make the services more accessible all-year-round.

A&S Landscape designed, manufactured and installed a fabric umbrella canopy. Measuring 4m X 4m, there is plenty of space for several people to gather underneath at once. The Slate Grey steelwork works perfectly with the Spruce fabric, creating a stylish and practical shade solution. Made with a waterproof PVC material, the Maxima Umbrella can be used throughout the year.

Parents and carers can now watch their children use the playground under the cover of the umbrella. And when there is a game being played at the field, the spectators can stand under the canopy too. It’s also a great place to enjoy a picnic or a cool drink during the summer months.

Why playground safety is so important and the potential dangers that teachers and schools should look out for

Playgrounds can become dangerous for a wide range of varying reasons. Unsafe behaviour is clearly something that teachers and students alike should be on the lookout for. But alongside protecting children from the weather, uneven and improper surfaces can also cause trips – and unsafe or unsound outdoor equipment can instantly turn the fun sour.

It’s projected that in the UK alone, around 40,000 children suffer from playground accidents. A huge amount of these even end up in the hospital or A&E, making it vital that schools do everything they can to impose proper playground safety. UK schools across the country struggle with making their playgrounds as safe as possible – fortunately, a lot of these accidents can be avoided with vigilant supervision.

By following safety suggestions and examining surfaces and equipment, you can do a lot to prevent future accidents that your pupils may have – making it an environment that can be safe and fun to play around in with reduced hazards.

The team at Ashcott Playing Fields are over the moon with the work, rating us five stars. They’ve already received many compliments, and the canopy has proven to be a very popular addition. We thoroughly enjoyed working with such a brilliant organisation to help further improve their facilities. From the pouring rain to the hot sun, the umbrella structure will provide optimal protection from the elements.

“We love it, we’ve had lots of compliments about it. People have used it to shelter as they watch the football and we are delighted!”
