Maxima Sail™

Glenwood School has fantastic playground facilities, but the pupils couldn’t use the outside space when the weather conditions were poor. A&S Landscape worked with the school to design a set of shade sails.

Nine Maxima Sail structures were installed at various points around the school grounds. Each canopy features brightly coloured fabric, including mid blue, red and bright yellow. The school also chose to add post pads to the shades, providing extra protection for the pupils.

The new shades have transformed break times at Glenwood School and already have been a very popular addition. The pupils can enjoy their playtimes outside, in the fresh air, every day – no matter the weather. This allows them to let off steam and make use of the great play equipment.

Teachers can also take their classes outside under the shade sails, without having to plan around the conditions. This alternative learning environment helps to engage the pupils and create a memorable lesson. Parents could stand underneath the canopies too, sheltered from the elements at the end of the school day.

We think the colourful shade sails have created a striking effect, and offer a great place to socialise, play and relax under. It’s great that so many schools are recognising the benefits of spending time outdoors.

A&S Landscape has worked with hundreds of schools, helping to further the student’s experience. From cycle stores to dining area canopies, we offer a range of products, including our fabric Maxima Parasol canopy.
