Bordon Infant School in Hampshire were looking to add educational value for their pupils, by maximising the potential of their outside space.
The footprint of the school had ample potential for outside learning and the teachers and PTA were committed to enhancing this with the addition of a canopy to allow the playground to be used throughout the year.
With the school opting to add a splash of lively colour to the surroundings, Fordingbridge were tasked with the design and build of the steel 3m cantilever canopy to cover the area. Finished with a durable multi-colour polyester powdercoat, the steel frame was initially zinc sprayed to provide longevity for the frame.
The roof used is a 16mm triple wall polycarbonate which meets the Class B non-fragility requirements, further adding to the overall longevity and safety of the structure.
Fordingbridge’s bespoke structure has an industry leading 25 year guarantee on the frame, as testament to our confidence in our quality manufacture. We also supply structural calculations which are specific to the site in question at no additional cost, ensuring your new canopy will provide decades or safe coverage.
