Timber Shelters and Canopies for Schools

Our range of Timber Shelters and Canopies for Schools are totally customisable to your School’s requirements. We work with you to choose from our standard format of options (below) to create your perfect Outdoor Classroom Shelter.

Outdoor classrooms in Schools, allow teachers and carers to develop learning in a sheltered outdoor space. They can also be used recreationally, allowing children to use their imagination – turning the Shelter into a special fort or castle.

Manufactured using premium Glulam laminated timbers which are fire resistant to BS 5268 and sanded offering a smooth and splinter free finish. A galvanised steel foot into a concrete foundation, ensures no rotting at ground level and a peace of mind structural guarantee. A choice of watertight roof finishes that provide the perfect cover from the elements.

Our shelters can go straight onto your existing playground surface or onto any hard standing base, ie tarmac, block paving or concrete. Decking or artificial grass are all weather floors and an extra finishing touch.
