An Introduction to Able Canopies

Dartington Church of England Primary School

Product: Tarnhow Mono Wall Mounted Timber Canopy

Kier Construction got in contact with us as they were working on a project at Dartington Primary School in Devon. They were looking to add outdoor cover to six different areas of the school grounds, including sand pits, and also wanted to add a cycle shelter to the grounds.

 Our timber framed Tarnhow system was perfect for this challenge. Not only did timber fit in well with the buildings and school grounds, it was also a cost effective solution. 

The outcome was an impressive and complex installation totalling over 120 metres in length, with projections varying from 4m up to 7.88m. Innovative new fixings and expert fitting were all part of providing the school with the shade and shelter that they required.
