Case Study – Kids Planet, Winnington, Brise Soleil

By | 17 March 2022

Kids Planet Day Nurseries currently provides childcare for over 7,500 children across their 54 settings in the North West and Midlands.

Last September, the nursery opened a new setting in the commercial hub at the centre of the new Winnington Urban village housing development.

Twinfix were approached by principal contractor Short Construction to design, manufacture and install two Brise Soleils for the nursery.

The Brise Soleils served two purposes, while providing additional shelter in conjunction with the canopy over the play area and the entrance to the building, they also enhanced the aesthetics of the area and complemented the building’s exterior.

The South West elevation spans 14 metres and the North East elevation spans 17 metres. Both structures comprise of 200mm ellipsoid aluminium blades, every 300mm and are 3m and 4m height. The aluminium is powder coated to RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey.

The structures were installed in time to protect students and staff from the summer sun this summer and for years to come.
