School Canopies

School canopies and shelters make a fantastic addition to any school as they help to promote outdoor play and learning whilst keeping students of all ages safe from the elements.

School Canopies & Lean to Canopies

SAS Shelters manufacture a range of quality school canopies, including cantilever, curved and lean to canopies. We custom build all our school canopies to suit our customer' requirements. After an initial site survey we will discuss and finalise the design and what would suit the building.

All our School canopies make excellent area's for play time, outdoor teaching, parent waiting areas and walkways. Our cantilever canopies can be manufactured from GRP moulding, steel or aluminium sections.

Depending on the size and projection required, and where the canopy is fitted, a canopy supported by legs may be more suitable. These can either be free standing or directly buried into the ground. We also offer the outdoor and lean to canopies in wood, all with the option to be fitted with different combinations for example glass, polycarbonate and log lap. They also have the option to be fitted with stand alone seating or custom built bench seating.

As well as our selection of cantilever and lean to canopies, SAS Shelters also offer a range of sail shades in different types of fabrics, and variety of colours which offer excellent sun protection against the harmful UV Rays, as well as brightening up any playground area.

Why Choose SAS School Canopies

At SAS Shelters, we use our years of experience to advise on the best materials to suit the structure - with the minimal amount of support which doesn't impede on the space underneath the canopy whilst still offering the strength required to meet all the snow and wind loading regulations.

On larger custom built school canopies, full design drawings are supplied, which can be superimposed on to a photograph of the School's building. This helps our customers fully understand what the finished product would look like so any alterations can be made before manufacture commences. We would then assist the school through the planning process and issue all the required drawings to the planning office for approval.

For Customers who want something retractable, offering protection against environmental elements when required, our range of commercial awnings make an ideal solution. We offer electric and manual operated awnings which come with a 5 year guarantee.
