Awnings for Schools & Nurseries

An awning not only provides sun shading for pupils, but also adds options to your outdoor spaces, for enhanced learning and development

Awnings For Your School Or Nursery 

With global warming on the rise and the UK getting some of its hottest weather on record, sun-protection is now more important than ever. Especially to protect little ones who are potentially at more risk of sunburn and skin damage.

Our sun shades and awnings are a great way to provide protection from all weather in a school or nursery setting. Not only can it provide shade for the children, it can also increase protection for teachers, supervisors and parents.

In a 2008 report, OFSTED described the limited amount of outdoor space in schools as a major concern and “a lack of suitable canopies unnecessarily limited the use of these areas.” Investing in an awning for your school or nursery provides a new multi-use space which can be used to hold lessons outside the classroom; a vital learning experience.

The Benefits of Commercial Awnings for Schools and Nurseries

  • Create a Usable Outside Area – Keeping little ones entertained inside can be stressful and, with the ever-changing British weather, outside is not always an option. By installing a Roché quality commercial awning for your school or nursery, you’ll be able to let them play both indoors and outdoors without the worry of rain. Outdoor play is also an important part of their learning development.
  • Add To The Exterior Design – With Roché’s quality commercial awnings, you’ll be able to choose from a vast array of stylish design options. We have experience in installing our awnings on large and small properties, so no matter the size of your building, you’ll get a professional service unlike no other.
  • Useful and Practical – A Markilux or Weinor awning is practical and incredibly useful for your school or nursery. With easy-to-use controls, you’ll be able to use the awning whenever it is required. When you no longer need it out, simply retract it into your chosen cassette until you need it again.
