School Awning Installation in Northwood

The Brief

Founded in 1910, Merchant Taylors' 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 the 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 the 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 x 3m folding arm B28 electric awning systems positioned over a decked play area to provide durable weather protection and a long-lasting shading solution for Merchant Taylors' Prep. 

The B28 awnings are made of corrosion resistant aluminium, are fully retractable and can be easily activated by the latest remote control technology to ensure total ease of use. The remote stops the awning at any position up to its full projection, giving the client flexibility on how much shade to provide. The awning fabric used is durable, strong and low maintenance, ensuring years of quality shading for the school, and guaranteed not to fade or rot due to exposure. Following the initial consultation, the bespoke awnings for the client were manufactured, delivered and installed within six weeks.

Are you looking for a cost-effective outdoor shading solution at your school? Our school awnings are affordable, long-lasting and easy to operate. Ensure your staff and pupils are protected from the harsh sun during playtime and call Broadview today to arrange a free consultation.

The Result

The new awning systems are ideal for Merchant Taylor’s prep; they are easy to use and maintain whilst keeping within health and safety standards. The client is thrilled with the results, and since completing the project more educational establishments have asked Broadview to provide awnings for playgrounds and nurseries. The bespoke awnings enable the school to promote outdoor play even during the hottest summer days.

“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
