School Awning Installation in Northwood

The Brief

Founded in 1910, Merchant Taylor’s Prep is a prestigious preparatory school located in Northwood, Hertfordshire that teaches pupils from three to thirteen. Our client wanted to create an outdoor environment that enables young pupils and staff to stay safe in the sun. While also providing protection inside classrooms from UV rays during peak hours when children are learning. The shading solution for the pre-prep building has to be versatile, and durable to suit the needs of the school play area

The Broadview Solution 

After the team completed an assessment of the site to establish specific requirements for the project, we recommended B28 electronic awning systems for the client as it would perfectly fit the brief assigned. Shortly after the consultation, Broadview started designing, manufacturing and installing the bespoke shading solution to the pre-prep building. We installed two 4m by 3m folding arm B28 electric awning systems, that has been positioned over a decked play area to provide durable weather protection for young pupils, and a long-lasting shading solution for Merchant Taylor’s Prep. 

The B28 awnings are made of corrosion resistant aluminium, and are fully retractable and easily activated by the latest remote control technology to ensure user-friendliness. The remote stops the awning at any position up to its full projection. The fabrics used are durable, strong and low maintenance giving years of shade for the school, and guaranteed not to fade or rot related to weather. Following the initial consultation, the bespoke awnings for the client were manufactured, delivered and installed within six weeks. 

The Result

The new awning systems are ideal for Merchant Taylor’s prep, they’re easy to use and maintain while keeping within health and safety standards. The client is thrilled with the awning results, and since completing the project more educational establishments have asked Broadview to provide awnings in playgrounds and nurseries. The bespoke awnings enable the school to integrate outside areas with the building to provide an attractive and encouraging educational environment whilst protecting pupils from the sun’s harmful rays. 

“The new awnings over the decked play area look great! The shade is a wonderful addition to this area and the children can now enjoy an extended outdoor play area and cooler classrooms. At school we have a responsibility to ensure that the children are protected from the harmful effects of the sun, so providing sufficient shade for the outdoor spaces in schools is very important. The Broadview awnings are a welcome addition to the school.” - Headteacher at Merchant Taylor’s Prep
