Multicoloured Shade Sails at Dunraven Academy in London
Posted on 24/04/2020
Dunraven Academy wanted its students to spend more outside in their breaks and lunchtimes. The academy contacted A&S Landscape and asked us to design, manufacture and install a shade solution.
Project – Dunraven Academy add shade sails in London
Product – Maxima StarSail
Requirement – Dunraven Academy has a large amount of outside space on their campus, but when the weather conditions were poor the students couldn’t make use of it. The staff decided to add areas of shade and shelter to the campus, which would allow the students to spend more time outdoors in the fresh air.
Solution – Two Maxima StarSails were added to the site, each measuring 6m X 6m. The sails feature subtle Slate Grey steelwork which contrasts well with the brightly coloured Orange and Raspberry fabric roofs. Made with a waterproof PVC material, the StarSails can be used as a shelter from the rain as well as sun.
Result – The StarSails have created a striking statement to the campus and have been a popular addition already. During break times the students can gather under the shade to socialise, relax and refresh. Rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, it’s no surprise that the school prides itself on offering the best facilities for the hardworking pupils.
