The new space is wonderful, it has created a real feature of the seating space. Students and visitors alike now have somewhere to enjoy the fresh air no matter what the weather has to offer.

Project – Waterproof Shade Sails add covered seating at Shipley College

Product – Maxima Sails 

Requirement – 
Shipley College is an educational setting for 16-18 year olds in Saltaire in West Yorkshire. The courses offered here are varied and include gardening and horticulture. Adjacent to one of the greenhouses was a seating area with benches and it was in desperate need of some shade and shelter.

Solution – The Maxima range has a number of different fabric canopies. Umbrellas, Shade Sails and Tepees to name a few. The Shade Sails are available in triangle or square fabric, overlapping or single layer, different colours, shade cloth or PVC, so the choices really are endless. Shipley College wanted their covered area to be waterproof so they chose waterproof PVC fabric and designed their shade sails with Slate Grey (RAL 7015) steel posts, and fabric in Vanilla.

Result – The new space is wonderful, it has created a real feature of the seating space. Students and visitors alike now have somewhere to enjoy the fresh air no matter what the weather has to offer. The colours have made the area look modern and stylish, in line with the rest of the campus. Students can be found enjoying some downtime between lectures in this new space, what a lovely addition to Shipley College!
