Shinfield West Primary School case study
Product: 3no Spaceshade Lux freestanding canopies, Elk Velo Cycle and Scooter Shelters, Rolshade 430 roller blinds, Elk RF door barriers
Sector: Education Location: Shinfield, Reading
Specifier: The Bush Consultancy
That’s Interesting: Kensington provided the complete shade and shelter package, including canopies, cycle shelters, blinds and street furniture, saving money and increasing efficiency for the contractor.
Kensington Systems worked with Beard Construction and the Bush Consultancy to provide a range of packages for a new ‘state of the art’ primary school. The school is part of the Shinfield West development, for Wokingham Borough Council.
3no Spaceshade Lux freestanding canopies were installed on both sides of the building. They provide a large sheltered area perfect for outdoor learning and play.
The canopies also provide shading from direct sunlight. This helps to keep the internal temperature comfortable as well.
Integral drainage channels hide inside the front posts, enabling direct connection into underground channels for a neat, aesthetically pleasing finish.
The canopy’s aluminium frame can be powder coated to any RAL colour to match the external finishes. In this case the chosen colour was RAL 7016.
Kensington also installed Rolshade 430 roller blinds, Elk Velo cycle shelters, and RF door restrainers.
The school is aiming to open in September 2019.
