Reception Class Playground Canopy

Reception Class Playground Canopy

In September 2020, Gail Owens of Arden Primary School in Sparkhill, Birmingham, contacted Zenith for a quotation for an all year round canopy for their Reception playground.

Ian Manners of Zenith carried out a site survey at Arden Primary and after discussing Gail’s requirements, quoted for 1 x 6m x 4m Airone Tipo 150 which fitted perfectly in the area outside the Reception class.  Gail and her team liked the design of the Airone Tipo and the fact that it can be used all year round for an outdoor play and learning area.

Subsequently, Gail placed an order for delivery and fitting in the October half term.  Gail also arranged for artificial grass to be fitted underneath.

In addition, for extra safety reasons, because of the age of the children, a high impact safety pad was fitted to the outer leg column.

The school are delighted with the canopy and are now looking forward to the children using it all year round.

The Airone Tipo 150 system is available in standard modular sizes from 3m up to 7m but can also be manufactured to bespoke sizes to suit the area.  Being modular, it has endless add on capacity.  The structure frameworks are manufactured in galvanised steel and powder coated in a choice of colours and the canopies are produced in PVDF coated PVC also available in a variety of colours.

Reception class canopy

Reception class canopy

In early September, Lee Adkins, the Site Manager of Burstow Primary School in Smallfield, Surrey contact Zenith Canopy Structures regarding a canopy for their reception playground.

Ian Manners of Zenith, carried out a site survey and provided Lee and their Business Manager, Wendy Iball, with three options from our range of canopies most suited to schools.

After further discussions with the reception class teachers, they selected 1 x 4.5m x 5m Simplicity 35 Series canopy.  They selected the Simplicity 35 as they were all impressed with the design, which includes integral guttering, an extremely strong 35mm structured polycarbonate roof and a ‘goal post’ system that allowed us to install the structure as a standalone canopy opposed to fixed to their building. The school chose the aluminium framework powder coated in white with a 35mm opaque polycarbonate roof.

They placed their order on October 15th and were delighted that Zenith were able to manufacture and be able to deliver and fit on Monday 04th November, which was an inset day, prior to school returning on the 05th November, after their half term break.

Wendy said ‘the school are delighted with the canopy and the children are now able to play outside under cover all year round’.

Our research has told us that covered outdoor play and learning has proven to improve pupil engagement, now the reception class at Burstow can go outside for play or lessons whatever the weather.

Zenith has a wide range of canopies to suit all budgets and with 30 years’ experience in supplying canopies for education are the ideal choice when looking to cover your outdoor area.

Our structures are available in steel or aluminium frames, we use a selection of roofing materials including PVDF coated PVC, UV protected polycarbonate, or clear, tinted or self-cleaning glass.

The school selected Zenith's Simplicity 35 Series canopy with aluminum framework powder coated in white and a 35mm polycarbonate opaque roof.
