School canopies - protecting children from the elements

I’m sure we all remember the trauma of a wet break at school. No football, no cricket, no running around on
the field, just a lot of noise and a lot of stress as everyone is packed into the classroom. The benefits for the children being able to get out and about, play and let off a bit of steam are countless; both in terms of their health as well as their educational development, helping them concentrate when lessons begin. So don’t let
the British weather ruin lunchtimes and breaks for your pupils – invest in school canopies from Acorn.


Our school canopies have a wide range of features making them the hardwearing, weatherproof choice.
You also benefit from:

  • A full design, build and installation service
  • Flexibility – our school canopies can be adapted to meet most requirements
  • Vandal proof and virtually maintenance free products
  • Attractive finishes in a variety of colours and designs
  • Installation that is to HSE Standards and compliant with current building regulations

We can provide your pupils and staff with the perfect location to shelter from the elements or shade from the sun. Whether you want a sheltered walkway between classrooms, or a covered play space or seating area, Acorn school canopies can design and install a unique system providing all the protection you need.

Canopies for schools create the perfect outdoor space

Over the last few years the number of playground and walkway canopies being installed in schools has dramatically increased. They offer an affordable and attractive way to create covered play areas, parent shelters and covered walkways.


Our school canopies are completely freestanding; ensuring your school not only gains space, but can also enjoy a purpose built canopy where access is restricted. It is also important, in a school setting, not to have support beams all over the playground, where there lies the risk of children running into them or tripping over them. Acorn school canopies are vandal resistant, incredibly strong and require virtually no maintenance.
Even harmful UV rays are filtered out, protecting the children from sunburn!
