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.

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

The canopy was fitted during the summer half term break and when the children returned to school they were delighted with their new covered play area which they can now use all year round regardless of weather. They had even put a note on their outside blackboard .......
