Case Study

Sunshade Services were tasked with providing an outdoor sheltered space for Frimley Church of England Junior school. The existing space was located near to the main school building but on the edge of the playing field with a pavement walkway on one side and an existing football pitch on the other. Our design brief was to cover an area as large as possible, within budget whilst remaining within the confines of the pavement & football pitch. The structure was to be located centrally when looking at the school building to create a symmetrical view when looking at the school.

Our solution was to install two of our Trent canopies, each 8m long x 6m wide, joined-together to cover a total area of 16m long x 6m wide. The two canopies were joined in the middle with one of our custom-made gutter joints which effectively created one large canopy.

The first job was to install the below ground concrete foundation blocks which are installed to support the structure. The top was removed from the existing grass surface & placed aside to cover the concrete blocks once complete. The support posts were then bolted directly to these concrete blocks & the top turf was replaced to create a sleek finish around the base of each post. The installation of the concrete blocks was completed in one day.

The next job was to install the steel support framework including the stainless-steel roof arches along with the stretched canvas roof which again was completed in approx. one and a half days. The entire installation process for these canopies was less than three days from start to finish.

The steel framework was powder coated in the colour of choice of the client & comes with a 5-year structural warranty. Each post was fitted with a 50mm thick, 1.5m long padded post protector in different colours so as to optimise the appearance of the structure. The entire structure has been designed & manufactured in the UK to maximise the backup & support for all component parts.

These canopies are available in a range of standard dimensions or each one can be custom made or adapted to suit any client’s own individual requirements. The powder coating on the steelwork is available in almost any standard RAL colour, the roof canvases are available in ten colours & the post safety pads are available in fifteen striking colours. Alost every aspect of your canopy can be customised to suit your requirements.

Trent canopies can be installed in completely open areas, adjacent to existing buildings, courtyards, in fact anywhere there is a requirement for a covered area. Offering low cost, large coverage these canopies offer complete flexibility to offer a solution to almost any shading problem.
