Social Distancing Canopies - Back to School with Zenith Canopies and Shade Sails

Social Distancing Canopies - Back to School with Zenith Canopies and Shade Sails

As social distancing becomes a feature of our everyday life and the new normal, schools and colleges are exploring innovative ways of providing extra outdoor covered space for their students. Furthermore, current guidelines indicate that time spent in well ventilated areas or outdoors is a safer way of groups mixing whilst adhering to social distancing measures.

Installing one of Zenith’s canopy structures is the perfect way of utilising existing space within schools whilst increasing the availability of covered teaching space. Our canopies come in all shapes and sizes and can be used as outdoor classrooms, eating areas and covered play areas. The canopies are available in a variety of colours and can also be made to special order. Heating, lighting and sidewalls can also be added if required.

Zenith's range of canopy structures are an extremely cost effective way of adding covered areas to your school buildings, we also offer Lease Rental options between 3-5 years to help with budgeting. All of our canopies meet UK Building regulations for wind and snow loadings.

With more than 30 years of experience installing canopies across many sectors, our friendly and knowledgeable team are here to help. If you would like further information on our products or to arrange a no obligation site survey please call us on 01189 789072 or use our contact us page and we will be in touch shortly.

How much does a school canopy cost?

How much does a school canopy cost?

Our recent research has shown that a school may have a requirement for a canopy for additional outdoor covered space but have no idea what the cost of school canopies are.

We realise your time is valuable so we have produced a simple price guide for the supply and installation of canopies. Our portfolio of products is obviously much larger than those listed but hopefully the following helps with your initial budget assessments. If you would like to explore the potential for having one of our structures fitted at your school or premises please contact us and we can arrange to visit your site to discuss your requirements further. We are also able to advise remotely should a site visit not be suitable.

Glass Canopy Cover at London School

Glass Canopy Cover at London School

In February Chris Wright the Estates Bursar at Emanuel School in Battersea, South London, invited Zenith to quote on a canopy to cover their pupils from the elements whilst queuing in the playground outside the dining room. 

Ian Manners of Zenith presented several options, which included visuals to the school and Chris and the senior management team selected an 8m x 2m Simplicity 6 Series glass canopy with a Victorian upgrade which is more in keeping with the surrounding buildings. 

The framework is manufactured in aluminium and was powdercoated in blue to match the school colours. The canopy is made from 6mm toughened glass.

When the pupils returned for the start of the summer term they were delighted to see the new canopy which will protect them from the sun, wind and rain all the year round whilst waiting to enter the dining room.

Winnersh Primary School Canopy Club

The Children at Winnersh Primary School are now running a 'Canopy Club' during school lunch times.

The poster at the school advertising the 'Canopy Club' states:

  • Lots of stuff to do 
  • For any year
  • Games, word searches and FUN, FUN, FUN !! 

The 'Canopy Club' is an example of another innovative way in which schools are using canopies for outdoor play.

Since installing the canopy in July 2015 the school have used it for outdoor eating, a quiet area, the 'Canopy Club' and Christmas carol concerts.

The 9m x 9m Airone Max structure is manufactured in galvanised steel and powdercoated in the school colours. The eye catching canopy is manufactured from a high grade 100% waterproof PVC which also cuts out all harmful UV rays making this the ideal structure for covering larger playground spaces.
