John Burns Primary School in Battersea oversaw a competitive tender process to add two large canopies to their school grounds. Setter provided a design and quote in early 2020, which was selected for the project.
Their brief was to create extra all-weather space that they could use all year round, which Setter was able to provide with its roller-shutter canopy designs. Glulam timbers were also used to provide a striking look that continues and complements the lines of the school building.
The polycarbonate roofing material, which was supplied in a customised colour, works to deflect 98% of the sun’s harmful UV-rays and prevents the shelter from overheating.
Guttering collects rainwater in an orderly manner and discharges it into an existing gulley.
The roller shutters add security and also protect the outdoor play and teaching space from the weather, as well as from rodents and foxes.
