My Favourite Hertfordshire Installation so Far…

My Favourite Hertfordshire Installation so Far…

My teams have installed over 40 canopies, shelters, shade sails and awnings across 14 different towns in Hertfordshire. Although I think all of the installations are fantastic and really benefit the schools, nurseries, child care centres, education support centres and community venue buildings they were installed at; I do have one particular favourite installation so far…

Underhill Infant School, Barnet

Underhill infant school in Barnet, Hertfordshire first contacted my sales team back in January 2010. They were looking for a shade structure along the back of one of their buildings to provide shade and create a dry area for their pupils to play under outside.

After discussions on what product would be most suitable, the school decided on having three Codale Conic free standing canopies installed in a row to create one single structure. The individual canopies measured 6 metres x 5 metres each with a total length of 18 metres!

The end result was stunning and I think it really suites the area that it was installed in. The Codale Conic is a strong steel canopy which is covered with waterproof tensile fabric that is available in over 40 colours.

The staff at Underhill Infant School were so impressed with the canopy and the benefits that their pupils were gaining from outdoor play & learning, that they decided to expand their outdoor facilities by ordering another two Codale Conics in October 2012. They requested for the canopies to be installed alongside the current structure, extended it by 13 metres making the total length of the structure now 31 metres long and 5 metres wide!

I love this installation because it shows that once outdoor play and outdoor lessons are put into practice, it becomes apparent that really is great for the children in so many ways and you will want to offer more opportunities for your pupils to enjoy outdoor learning.
