In Barking there is an amazing school called Riverside Bridge School. It is a day special school which opened in September 2015 and serves the Barking and Dagenham areas.
Outside, they had a nice large play area but something was definitely missing, it had no shade or shelter for the students. A&S Landscape have worked with schools for more than 40 years, so we knew that we would have just the right product to complement the campus.
There are so many options when you begin to look in to school canopies. From steel and polycarbonate canopies to fabric roofed canopies. You can choose from a wide range of colours in order to brand or personalise the canopy, depending on your design or theme. The canopy that Riverside Bridge school decided on was an Umbrella style canopy from our Maxima range. It was installed at 5000mm x 5000mm, with Slate Grey (RAL 7015) steelwork and Victoria Blue waterproof fabric.
The canopy looks great against the modern backdrop of the building. The play area is now completed and the children can use the area whether it is sunny or rainy. The PVC fabric offers shade or shelter depending on the day. The canopy adds an important option for the children to have some outside time no matter what the weather has to offer.
A&S Landscape have almost 1500 images in our gallery to offer you some inspiration if you are considering a similar project.
