Priorswood Primary School – Reception Class Outside Covered Play
Reception class outside play area which had to follow a 90° change of direction to follow the building and utilise the existing concrete hard standing. We provided our Oxford lean to style canopy with a tensile PVC fabric clad roof. We designed in the column locations to avoid gates and cantilevered the structure over the door way into the classroom and allow for maximum free flow. The roof over sailed the building all the way around to keep the weather out and we fabricated our aluminium gutter at the outside to flow continuously to discharge rain water and maintain the canopies clean lines.
- Shape: Curved Lean-to
- Support: Free Standing
- Hoop Style: Lattice
Frequently Asked Questions
- Are your canopies usable all year in all weathers?
Yes unlike some solutions that need to be taken down in the winter or during high winds our canopies are designed to be useable all year round. The cladding materials as well as providing shade are also waterproof so that they can be used during wet weather.
- Can we view existing canopies, so that we know what we are buying?
If you are considering purchasing a canopy from any company, it is in fact strongly recommended that you visit an existing installation to see exactly what you are paying for. At Clovis Canopies we are proud of our work and are happy to arrange (with the clients consent) for you to view examples of our work and structures.
- Do you fix your canopies directly onto tarmac?
No, all canopies are fixed on to concrete pads or bases as the structures can lift out from the ground if not fixed into a suitable concrete base due to the uplift created by wind acting on the roof area.
- What are Building Regulations and will they affect me?
In relation to our canopies Building Regulations specify the standard to which they should be built i.e. strength, fire rating of materials etc. Again it is advisable to contact your local Building Control officer(s), as a rule of thumb any canopy over 30m2 will require conformity to building regulations and an application will need to be made although this figure can be lower. Most of our structures are supplied conforming to the requirements for these regulations as standard and generic sets of structural calculations can be supplied free of charge to demonstrate to Building Control the integrity of the proposed structure and foundations.
