Project – Sydney Russel School in Essex adds smart playground canopy umbrella

Product – Maxima Umbrella 

Requirement – When you consider a playground canopy it is important to think about exactly what you want it to do. In this case, Sydney Russell School wanted the purpose to be two-fold; to add shade in the hotter months of the year and shelter in the wetter months of the year.

Solution – A&S Landscape has been working with schools for more than 40 years, helping to add the right canopy to each campus, so we knew that we had something to fit the bill. Our Maxima range includes the Umbrella canopy, which can have shade cloth or waterproof fabric. The waterproof fabric was selected and installed in a smart Porcelain Green colour. All our colours can be seen here on our colours page if you are looking for some inspiration.

Result – The result is a smart new addition to the playground, which does exactly what we had planned. The children now have shade and shelter in their outside area. We are delighted to have been able to add to an already “Outstanding” schools. Sydney Russell school was judged ‘‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2013 and it is one of the top three schools in the Local Authority on all key exam measures. The school has just completed a £26 million rebuilding programme and has excellent state of the art facilities.”
