No More Rushing in from the Rain for Rush Green Primary School

No More Rushing in from the Rain for Rush Green Primary School

When it comes to working on big projects with Contractors, Architects and Councils, it’s quite rare that we are able to take photos of the canopy installed with the groundworks around it finished as they are usually completed afterwards. It’s not always possible for us to go back to site after the full works are completed due to other commitments and it not being environmentally viable.

Luckily, this wasn’t the case with Rush Green Primary School. We supplied and installed a 16m x 2.2m Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy within the school’s quad area in June this year (2023). Although multiple building works were being completed onsite such as a single storey extension, internal alterations, and refurbishment, the canopy installation was required nearer the end of the completed works. This meant that once we completed the installation of the wall mounted canopy, our photos look great as all the groundworks were finished. This made our marketing team smile – they do love a good, completed installation photo.

The Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy is by far our most popular canopy, given that it:

  • Can wrap around internal and external corners,
  • It’s available with many accessories for you to personalise it
  • It can be enclosed with side panels
  • It can be supplied as a free-standing canopy if required
  • It can be extended years after the initial installation if you find you need more cover from the weather
  • It can be finished in any RAL colour to match or compliment your surroundings
  • It has an unlimited length and a maximum projection if up to 6 metres
  • It is supplied with a full 10 year guarantee and a 25 year life expectancy
  • It features integrated aluminium guttering which not only looks better, but it is also stronger which deters vandalism and is much easier to maintain.
  • It has a fully aluminium construction making it strong and rust resistant
  • It is covered with 35mm structured polycarbonate panels which are vandal and shatter resistant and will not turn yellow over time from exposure to the sun due to the special UV coating
  • The roof panels offer protection from over 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, helping you to keep children and adults underneath safe from the sun
  • Robust, commercial design that has a roof which can be walked upon as a means of escape (with the use of boards)

From reading the above you can see why the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham chose the Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy as the perfect shade and shelter structure for their school. We particularly love the bright colours on the buildings in the quad area and think the fresh, white appearance of the canopy compliments it well.
