Maxima Sail™

Not only can the sheltered area be used during lunchtimes, but it can also be used as an additional learning space too.

What was the project brief?

St Mary’s College in Hull was looking for a free standing canopy for an area on their campus where the students often enjoyed their lunch outside at break times. The staff also wanted the shelter to have stylish sail design so that the canopy fitted in with the outdoor area and surrounding school buildings. The college approached A&S Landscape, who are experts in the design, manufacture and installation of school canopies to help transform this outdoor space.

What was our freestanding canopy solution?

Fabric canopy we fitted at St Mary's CollegeOnce our design team had heard the brief from St Mary’s College, they knew that we have exactly the right product. The Maxima Sail™ canopy is typically fitted freestanding and is comprised of an iconic sail shade which creates a shade zone underneath. This canopy can also be customised to match a specific colour scheme, like the college’s logo. In this case, we coated the four uprights in a Slate Grey RAL colour and used a Celadon coloured fabric for the canopy roof.

So that the canopy could withstand any weather conditions, we made the sail with a PVC waterproof fabric. This means that the shelter can offer protection come rain or shine for the hardworking pupils.

What was the result of the fabric shade sail?

Everyone at St Mary’s College is thrilled with the overall quality of the canopy and the entire process of working with A&S Landscape. The sail is the ideal size for covering the entire section of picnic tables so many students can make use of the area at once. Overall, the sail has been the perfect solution for the college and will be used for many years to come.

Not only can the sheltered area be used during lunchtimes, but it can also be used as an additional learning space too. With the addition of some outside equipment, the shade sail can be quickly transformed into a functional space during lessons. It could also be a great place for the students to use during a time out from the traditional study rooms during stressful exam seasons.

About the client

How can shade sails be used at schools?

As well as covering an outdoor seating area, there are many great uses for shade sails at schools, colleges and universities. Below we will run through some of the most popular applications for sail shades.

Bespoke Fabric WalkwayCovered Walkways

Whenever we have installed a fabric covered walkway, the finished effect is always breath-taking. This is a great way of connecting up spread-out buildings and adding a real design statement to your area too. You will also be able to protect your pupils and staff from the elements as they move between classes.

Entrance Canopies

What better way to make a great first impression than with a stylish fabric canopy in your entrance area? An entrance canopy will offer shelter to your visitors while they arrive at your school and serves a handy drop off point for deliveries too. Attractive entrance covers are the perfect addition to any school or college.

Playground Cover

Another popular use for our fabric canopies is to cover parts of play areas at primary schools. This encourages your pupils to enjoy some outdoor play during their breaks and allows them to do so throughout the year. Outdoor play equipment can also be stored under the cover too, saving storage space inside the school building.
