Shelters for Schools

Shelters for schools have become increasingly popular over the years. Research has shown that children learn better outdoors, however, with the great British weather being unpredictable it can be tough to make the most of the outdoors without any form of shelter.

When the weather gets too hot or the heavens decide to descend on your class, having a playground shelter to go to be protected. As well as setting up playground shelters, we also offer canopies for schools that can be installed for outdoor and educational areas. If your school or nursery has an area for the little ones to play outside such as sand pits or play equipment it can be worth covering them with a shelter to protect against the harsh sun UV rays. School shelters are also handy above outdoor eating areas, break areas and pick-up points. We can also include padded covers to prevent young children from bumping into hard wood or metal parts of the shelter to keep your playground safe.

Having protection against the sun is more important than people think. The sun’s UV rays can lead to sunburn or worse, skin cancer. Having a sun shelter can also provide a shaded area for children to cool down in after being in the sun for a while; it can also provide shelter to the playground and sports equipment so that it doesn’t get too hot to use, which in turn increases the lifespan of playground equipment.
