Extensive school shade sail range
We work with a huge number of schools across the country, supplying and installing shade sails to Nursery and Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Academies, Universities and Colleges. Whilst technically shade sails are fabric sails suspended to offer shade the term 'shade sail' has become an umbrella term (excuse the pun!) for tensile fabric structures of many kinds which we group in our Maxima range and come in a wide range of colours, shapes and sizes. See our shade sails page for more information.

The need for shade in schools
Children spend almost half their childhood at school, with approximately 8 hours per week spent outdoors. During the hotter months of the year children are exposed to UV radiation from the sun, the majority of which is when UV penetration is at its strongest. Without adequate protection, a child's delicate skin can burn within minutes, causing irreparable damage. This can significantly increase their risk of developing skin cancer in later life. However, Skcin believe that it's not just parents who have a responsibility to ensure their children are equipped to protect themselves against UV during school hours. We believe that schools also have a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of their pupils, which includes working with both pupils and their parents to not just ensure children have access to sun protection measures, but that they are actively educated annually on the importance of sun safety…..
