Canopies for schools

Our shelters and canopies for schools, have a range of purposes, including the creation of outdoor classrooms and dining areas. These products can include side panels and entrance points to deliver the appropriate level of shelter and shade for any location.

Covered walkways and porch or door canopies help to direct visitors around sites as well as provide an impressive welcome. While bike shelters for schools are becoming an increasingly important requirement to support pupils’ wellbeing. 

Installing a shelter can transform under-used or neglected outdoor space by giving it a whole new purpose. It can open up capacity and create new teaching possibilities, while encouraging staff and students to enjoy time in the fresh air.

Playground Canopies & Shelters 

Playground canopies are becoming increasingly important for schools, contributing to the health and wellbeing of pupils and staff in many different ways. Rising temperatures mean creating areas of shade with a playground canopy or playground shelter is vital to sun safety.

A canopy, such as a fabric structure or school shade sail, can support sunlight exposure policies by raising awareness of the risks of spending time outside in the sun.

“It’s been a long time since we last spoke, I realise that I have been remiss in telling you what a fantastic job Broxap did on our first shelter, the teachers, pupils and parents have been over the moon with the availability of shelter, especially over the last few months of rain!!! It has been a brilliant meeting place and the children have been using it to eat lunch outside the last week or so, whilst keeping out of the April showers.”
