Coloured Polycarbonate Roof Panels

The staff at Priory Hurworth House School have brightened up their outdoor setting with a brand-new canopy featuring a multi-coloured polycarbonate roof and we think it looks fantastic!

We worked on this job with Richmond Contract Projects Ltd. who were refurbishing the school’s courtyard which leads onto the school’s playing field. The school which is in Darlington in County Durham, provides specialist education for boys and girls with SEMH difficulties and autism. They are registered to provide education to up to 67 students aged between 5 and 19 years, so the new canopy will provide a wealth of opportunities for their pupils, expanding their outdoor learning and play provisions.

The canopy that met their design requirements was the Grange Junior Free Standing Canopy with coloured polycarbonate roof panels. They originally asked for emerald green and opal panels however, because they were keen on a bright and colourful canopy, we put forward the suggestion of a multi-coloured roof. We therefore created a technical drawing (as shown to the right) to visualise what the coloured canopy roof panels would look like, and sent them some samples of the coloured polycarbonate panels in the post to help them come to a decision.

As you can see in the photos, they opted for the multi-coloured roof panels in the end which works really well with the Gentian Blue (RAL 5010) steel frame.

The finished canopy does the intended job of adding a splash of colour to their outside area whilst providing them with a covered 44 sqm area that provides full weather protection all year-round. The canopy blocks up to 98% of UV rays when its sunny and keeps them dry and sheltered from the rain and snow.
