Shelters

Shelters


External shelters are becoming more popular as architects aim to increase the provision of weather protective canopies and walkways, expanding away from the building making greater use of the outside space all year round.

Shelters are covered units used for outdoor teaching, entrance canopies and dining areas, and offer shelter from the elements. Parent waiting shelters and buggy parks are also needed in some schools to give parents a place to meet and wait away from the elements before picking up their children, and we have a range of these available too. Our shelters can be made from timber, steel, or using tensile fabric components. We also have a range of solar shades to protect buildings and classrooms from the sun’s glare.

All our shelter designs have been subject to wind, snow and imposed loadings calculations, carried out to BS EN 1991 Eurocode 1 (EC1) (Parts1-1, 1-3, 1-4 and are fit for purpose. Also because most of our shelter systems are modular, it’s extremely flexible and enables us to provide bespoke structures at a low cost.

Smoking Shelters

With smokers being moved outside, smoking shelters, for employees, the public, university students or teachers, are used to provide a designated smoking area.

Shelters don’t have to have a specific dining or educational purpose. Providing sheltered social areas for pupils to meet, converse and relax is also important.
