Shade and shelter for schools


Shade and shelter have increasingly become a critical environmental need for schools and requests for us to provide adjustable shade and shelter for schools and nurseries is becoming an every day occurence. Our range of external awnings and sunblinds can be attached to your building or be free standing. Where required, all-weather awnings, such as the Pratic or Markilux systems, will also provide you with an outdoor teaching area. Government guidelines suggest the provision of these outside teaching areas and solar control solutions will allow your schools to integrate outside areas with the classroom; enabling you to facilitate an attractive and encouraging outside educational environment in complete safety.

Within a health promoting school, opportunities to learn outdoors and to interact with the natural world make a vital contribution to a whole school approach to health. Education outdoors can involve working with others, practising new skills, undertaking practical conservation and influencing society. Learning outdoors can include the following, all of which are elements within the characteristics of a health promoting school:

  • knowledge and understanding
  • attitudes and feelings
  • values and beliefs
  • actions and behaviors
  • personal and social development.

Deans are also able to meet all your interior blinds needs with a range of screens for solar control and dim-out products suitable for use in areas which require subdued lighting, such as IT laboratories or lecture rooms, where films may be shown.

Naturally, Deans are comprehensively covered for working in Health and Safety environments. Deans are founder members of the British Blinds and Shutters Association and approved members of both the CHAS and Safe Contractor  Health and Safety at Work Schemes
