Roller-shutter canopies



Want to transform your school’s outdoor area?

Maybe you need extra space so that you can work outdoor classes into your schedule?

Regardless of the why, you cannot go wrong with one of our roller shutter canopies.

As one of the most innovative ways to expand your all-weather spaces, aid student development and interest, and increase classroom storage space, a roller shutter canopy effectively acts as an extension to your school building – but for a fraction of the cost of hiring a host of workmen to build a brick-and-mortar extension.

Roller shutters are connected to your school’s electrical system and raise or drop with the turn of a key. You can secure your outdoor play and learning provisions to protect them against pests and keep them safe in the worst of the British weather, and then raise the sides on a warm day to create an inviting space for your pupils to enjoy.

Our system works with mono-pitch canopies or our attractive glulam beams, which are ideal for creating a stand-out area on your school grounds.

We can also provide full-height panels with windows to create a functional outdoor classroom space, as well as customising the roofing sheets overhead, perhaps to match your school’s colours.

Our experts will guide you through each step of the process – from your initial consultation right the way through to the installation of your roller shutter canopy.

We always aim to meet your expectations, and will go above and beyond to generate the best possible results for you and your students.

Roller Shutter Canopies FAQs

Roller shutter canopies offer a host of different benefits for teachers and their students – from enhancing health and safety to providing the perfect space for outdoor lessons. But the benefits don’t end here:

Increased classroom space

Roller shutter canopies are a great way to increase classroom space – and with more space comes more opportunities for messier, more creative projects and activities. •

Protected walkways

If your students and teachers are constantly making their way from building to building, a canopy is an ideal way to keep walkways dry, ensure materials are protected and reduce the number of accidents as they go from class to class. •

Protection from the elements

Whilst outdoor learning is very beneficial for school children, all sorts of things including too much UV, the risk of burning and heavy downpours can wreak havoc on your class and disrupt your pupils.

With a roller-shutter canopy, you can take your class outside – whatever the weather – without having to worry about these kinds of disturbances.

Both students and teachers can benefit from outdoor learning in several different ways, including:

  • Better mental health

    Happier, healthier children are more motivated and eager to learn – and spending time outside has been proven to improve children’s moods, confidence and well-being.

    Improved relationships with nature

    For children to get a true grasp on the world around them, they need to be spending time outdoors.

    Combining important lessons with memorable experiences outside the classroom can help children build a connection with nature, making it so that they enjoy spending time outside.

  • Enhanced curriculum

    Outdoor classes allow children to look at learning from a new and exciting perspective.

    It provides, real and practical life experiences and also helps to develop crucial skills – such as problem-solving, teamwork and critical thinking – that children will carry through with them to adolescence and adulthood.

    For further details on how outdoor learning can benefit your children, or to enquire about supportive equipment, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Setter Play team!

  • The cost of roller-shutter canopies can vary massively, but it depends on a couple of different things, including the size of the canopy and how (or if) you decide to customise the design.

    Here at Setter Play, we pride ourselves on being able to offer our range of school playground equipment – including our roller-shutter canopies – at some of the most affordable prices on the market.

    Just because our canopies are more affordable, doesn’t mean we make any sacrifices to their quality of them, and we only use the highest-quality materials in the manufacture of our roller-shutter canopies.

    If you want to keep your roller shutter canopy in good condition, you must take good care of it. And there are several ways you can ensure it stays in peak condition.

    Regularly inspect the roof and gutters of the canopy to check that leaves, twigs and other seasonal debris haven’t built up too much. You may also come across stray toys, balls and other items that have – somehow – gotten lost on the canopy roof, so make sure you remove these too.

    Clean the drainpipes to make sure water can keep on draining effectively, and make sure to clear away any snow in the winter months.

    Other than this, regular cleaning should do the trick – and all you need is a solution of warm water and a mild cleaning detergent.
