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.

Polycarbonate Play Shelter for Primary and Nursery Schools

Polycarbonate Play Shelter for Primary and Nursery Schools

In early April Linda Shoard, the School Business Manager at Our Lady of Peace Primary and Nursery School approached Zenith to provide a quotation for 1 x 13m x 4m polycarbonate canopy to cover one of their Early Years areas.

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 .......

CANOPIES – Solving the space issue during wet break

School populations are on the up, the canteen is to full capacity and the school hall hasn’t got any bigger. Where do your pupils go during wet break?

Zenith Canopy Structures Limited have been supplying canopy structures to schools across the UK for over 25 years. These have been used to great effect for extra covered dining space, covered outdoor play areas or as shelter from the elements. Featuring a PVC canopy our Maxline products are perfect for sheltering from the rain or when we get some, the sun.

Installing extra covered areas within your school grounds, in our experience, is always well received by the pupils and seen as a positive improvement to their environment. It also relieves the school building from the hustle and bustle school breaks can bring.

If you feel you could benefit from one of our school canopies or playground shelters please give us a call today on 01189 789072 or complete our contact us page and we will call you.


Richmond-upon-Thames College have been using our canopies for over 7 years ......

“We had an unused area in one of our quadrangles and wanted to provide our students with the outdoor covered area for eating and drinking.

We had seen Zenith canopies at another school and liked the design and quality. After discussing the project with Zenith we decided to cover a 180sq/m area to one side of the quadrangle. We would like thank Zenith for their professional conduct in the installation of our canopy. We will be recommending their company to other institutes.”
