Awnings for schools are recommended by Government. Government guidelines suggest the provision of outside teaching areas and the use of awnings is ideal for this. Awnings can enhance the learning experience for children and will allow them to enjoy the beneficial effects of the outdoors whilst being safe from the harmful rays of the sun or inclement weather
Deans school awnings have been used by schools, nurseries and universities to provide shelter from the sun in many locations across the UK. Deans range of school awnings and sunblinds can be attached to the building or can be free standing.
Where required, all-weather school awnings, such as the Pratic terrace awning will provide the additional advantage of being useful as an outdoor teaching area.
Other educational establishments which have benefited from the installation of our awnings have included major Universities such as Leeds University and numerous nurseries where sun protection is of great concern and the all weather awning also allows children some outside time to let off steam even in inclement weather.
The awnings are simple to operate via remote controls and require little of no maintenance. Systems such as the Pratic all weather terrace awning can be used even in strong winds and heavy rain but we do not recommend their use in snow. Where required options such as heating and light can be added.
Deans have been manufacturing and installing awnings and blinds for over 120 years and we invite you call us on 020 8947 8931 when we will endeavour to answer your questions about the use of awnings on your place of education.
