Bridlewood Primary School in Swindon Add Playground Canopy
Ultramarine Blue - RAL NO. 5002
That’s because an outdoor canopy can be like having an extra room, bringing additional space and an all-weather environment. Our Motiva Mono certainly did that for Osborne Primary School. Fitted at 5000mm x 4000mm in blue (RAL5002) steelwork with an opal roofing, this canopy gives protection from the rain as well as keeping out harmful UV rays from direct sunlight.
Children now have more chance to learn and play in the fresh air. The playground area looks smart and the classroom is sheltered from the direct sunlight in the summer. All this without the need for a traditional classroom extension or associated planning matters. The children and teachers are very happy with the new canopy which is really what matters.
We don’t know how anybody manages without one!
Childhood obesity is arguably at its most critical and one of the more alarming issues we face all over the world. As attested by the World Health Organisation (WHO), it’s one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century. This global epidemic is hitting low and middle-income countries, more crucially in urban settings. Globally in 2016, the total of overweight children under the age of five was 41 million. Further, overweight and obese children have a tendency to stay obese into adulthood and are vulnerable to developing diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular ailments at a younger age.

“The canopy is allowing us to use the outside space despite the extremes of the Birmingham weather! It has greatly enhanced our foundation stage outdoor area. We don’t know how we ever managed without it.”
