School umbrella canopy at Phoenix School, Tower Hamlets

49 Bow Road
E3 2AD

Canopy type: Connekt free-standing umbrella canopy

Phoenix School was looking for a way to create a covered area to keep children protected from the elements during break times. Our Connekt free-standing umbrella canopy was the perfect solution, providing a wide, covered space for students to play, eat and relax while only requiring a single, central post for support. The canopy’s Melinex gel coating also protects against UV rays.

Outdoor learning canopy at Oakdale Infants School, Redbridge

Woodville Road
E18 1JU

Canopy type: Connekt outdoor learning canopy

Holding lessons outside can make learning more enjoyable, challenging, active and collaborative, according to research from the University of Stirling. As a result, an increasing number of schools are looking to create outdoor learning spaces – including Oakdale Infants School, which asked us to install our Connekt outdoor learning canopy. The cantilevered design means the Connekt doesn’t require any supporting posts, maximising space underneath the canopy.
