School Canopies make great play spaces

By | 20 December 2013

waveform-canopy-2The latest new canopy design from Twinfix features a wave-form roof shape.
This new design gives a really elegant look to this school canopy that creates a great protected play area for nursery children. Matching coloured padded post protectors were also requested and fitted to each vertical post.
Twinfix offer a full in-house design, manufacture and installation package for their commercial canopies and walkways. Using their CAD/CAM systems they can design glazed covers that fulfil the identified needs at a school and that enhance the space available.

Like all Twinfix canopies, structural calculations were carried out on this new design before manufacture commenced.
Other optional extras that can enhance a school canopy include lockable roller shutter doors, vertical side glazing to give some protection from the prevailing weather, water butts and post protectors.

Manufactured with powder coated aluminium frames that will not rust or ever require re-painting, Twinfix canopies use tough multiwall (or solid) polycarbonate for the glazing. This does not transmit UV in sunlight, so is an ideal material to cover a nursery play space. 16mm thick clear multiwall polycarbonate was specified for this roof, as it is adjacent to classrooms and the staff wanted to retain natural light.  Both bronze and opal tints are also available where different levels of light transmission figures are required.
Where required, Twinfix are happy to assist the school management team with their local authority Planning Application.
