Carisbrooke College on the Isle Wight needed to provide their students with shelter from the unpredictable weather. A&S Landscape worked with the college to create a practical, yet stylish, shade solution.
The finished product makes a real statement on the campus. The Maxima Sail structure is comprised of three sails, each measuring 6000mm X 6000mm. The dark blue fabric chosen works perfectly with the school buildings. The eight upright posts are finished in a modern slate grey steelwork colour, which complements the surrounding environment.
Because the shade sails are finished in a waterproof PVC fabric, they can be used every day and offer essential protection from the rain. This was an important requirement that the college had because of their location.
The students of Carisbrooke College now have an area they can shelter underneath when the weather is poor. This means the outside space can be accessed and used more frequently, relieving pressure from the existing facilities.
Giving students the chance to enjoy some fresh air and outdoor space has many benefits on the college. Classes can turn up to their afternoon lessons refreshed and motivated to learn. Teachers can also use the shelter as an alternative learning environment.
A&S Landscape offers a range of fabric canopies, including Tepees,Umbrellas, Parasols and StarSails. Our team can help you every step of the way, from the initial idea to completion. Get in touch with our friendly team today on 01743 444100.
