Boughton Under Blean School had just completed a refurbishment, resulting in the development of a new wing. The new layout of the school meant that there was a large glazed area suffering from the heat of the sun and a new playground. The heat from the sun meant that these areas were currently unusable. The head was looking for a modern and attractive shading solution to cover the playground whilst offering shade into the glazed area. In conjunction with our in-house structural engineer, we designed and engineered a bespoke custom sail shade solution that incorporated perfectly into the new school surroundings.
We were very happy with the installation. The workmen were very pleasant and left the area very tidy. The sails have been very useful, providing much needed shade over a wide area and look very impressive at the same time. I particularly like that fact that they do not have to be taken down for the winter and seems to need very little maintenance.'
