Forget Tasting the Rainbow, You Can Build a Rainbow

Forget Tasting the Rainbow, You Can Build a Rainbow

As we supply many of our structures to schools and nurseries, we therefore offer a range of colourful canopy upgrades to make the outdoor areas bright, cheerful and fun.

One of our favourite upgrades for schools most definitely has to be coloured polycarbonate. These roof sheets completely transform canopies, even with a standard white frame, they brighten the structure immensely. However, my most favourite feature is not only do they brighten the structure, but they brighten the area underneath too; when the sun is shining, a reflection of the colours cover the area below with a blanket of rainbows. Can you imagine being a young child and playing within that?! I’m not alone either, our customers love our canopies with coloured polycarbonate too and while I haven’t had the opportunity to ask school pupils if they agree… I think we all know they do.

It’s all well and good me telling you how fantastic these roof panels are for school canopies and nursery canopies however, you really need to see them for yourself. That’s why I’ve included a selection of photos from two Coniston 16’s that we installed earlier in the year at Selwyn Primary School in Newham, London.

We worked on this project for Thomas Sinden and we were specified by Clague Architects to supply and install a number of canopies, two of which included coloured polycarbonate roofs. I’ll leave you to browse through the vibrant photos below, if you’d like to find out more about our colourful structures please do not hesitate to contact us, email: or freephone: 0800 389 9072.

Coloured polycarbonate roof panels can be added to a section of our wall mounted and free-standing canopies including aluminium, steel and timber canopies.
