The provision of shade and shelter in play spaces is recognised as being important so that children can be protected from the elements whilst they are outdoors.
A shelter can give protection from harmful UV, and also increase the flexibility of your outdoor space in bad weather. Shelters can take may forms including sail shades, a timber shelter or gazebo, or the popular nash style shelter with polycarbonate roof.
Newby Leisure offers a complete playground design and build service that includes the full range of shade and shelter equipment.
Shelters and canopies can be important parts of a play space providing both shelter from the elements in the winter as well as UV protection in the summer.
Outdoor classrooms provide alternative teaching environments that help to engage children in learning and storytelling.
Storage is an important but often overlooked part of the play environment. Play equipment needs to be quickly, safety and securely stored away between play times by staff or the children themselves.
Bike shelters and buggy parks are important facilities that encourage walking and cycling to school: part of a healthy lifestyle.
