Part of having the best campus and setting is having provision for being outdoors. Everyone knows how much children love to be in the fresh air. When A&S Landscape were approached to add some shade and shelter by installing some canopies, we were pleased to talk through the design options that are available.

There are many design options and considerations when you want to add a canopy, and in this instance a fabric roofed canopy from our Maxima range was chosen. The Maxima Tepee canopy has a steel frame and fabric roof. Fabric roofs are available in shade cloth or PVC. PVC offers shade from UV rays and it is waterproof, this was chosen in bright red for the Wright Robinson Sports College Tepees. Each tepee measured 6000mm x 6000mm. The steelwork was (RAL 7037) and this meant that the school colours had been matched. What a smart way to maintain the school branding.

Each tepee is large enough to offer new outdoor spaces for the children to enjoy. We think they look fantastic!

A&S Landscape have more than 1500 images of our projects on our website. You can take a look in our gallery for some inspiration.
