Freethorpe & District Pre School required a sheltered outdoor area at their preschool in Norwich.

The preschool’s chairperson contacted Able Canopies after looking at our range on our website and expressed an interest in the Commercial Awnings. Able Canopies arranged for a site survey to be completed to see if their building was suitable to have an awning installed and which type of awning would suit the needs of the preschool.

During the survey, Able Canopies friendly surveyor discussed the options with the chairperson and also offered his professional advice. The survey was very successful and a quote was sent to the preschool for a Palladio Commercial Awning.

The preschool chairperson was very happy with the quote provided by Able Canopies and placed an order for the Palladio Awning.

The Palladio Commercial Awning is the most popular product from the Able Canopies Awning range. Able Canopies Awnings are ideal for small budgets as they are cost effective, they can also be retracted when not in use. The Palladio awning is available as either a manual or electric retractable awning and is available in over 60 different colours included plain, striped and waterproof. The awning has many other options including a choice of three valance options and the construction can be powder coated in white, silver, beige or brown.

Once the installation had been completed, the staff at the preschool were very impressed with their new awning and were happy to take part in Able Canopies free press release service as they were very satisfied with the service received from Able Canopies.

“The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the service we received was efficient and professional. Having our awning in place has made a huge difference to our pre-school. The children are able to have much more access to the outdoors which they love. We have been able to do more outdoor activities such as planting seeds and growing vegetables, and offer new fun and stimulating learning opportunities whilst enjoying the benefits of being outside. It is even better than we anticipated and we have received lots of positive feedback from the community. The children love it and we have been able to build it into a learning opportunity for them as they recognise the importance of keeping safe in the sun.” – Laura Saunders, Pre School Manager
