Ravenswood Primary School were looking for a canopy to be installed at the front of the school, they were not sure exactly of the canopy type yet they liked the idea of shade sails and they wanted something different that would stand out.

Able Canopies supply and install UV and Waterproof Shade Sails. They are premium products that are designed specifically for commercial use. Our Shade Sail systems are able to provide a long lasting and extremely durable structure to protect those underneath from the sun's powerful UV rays. They are designed specifically to be left outdoors 365 days a year and will not need re-tensioning.

Suffolk County Council contacted Able Canopies on the schools behalf and explained what the school was interested in and requested a full site survey.

Able canopies were happy to assist and booked a date for one of their CRB checked surveyors to survey the area and provide advice for the type of canopy that would be most suited to their requirements. At the survey the options were discussed and the school asked if they could design their own canopy and send the pictures to Able Canopies and see if the canopy they required could be achieved. Able Canopies have designed and installed many bespoke canopies and were more than happy to agree with this.

The drawings were sent to Able Canopies and they were able to produce a Shade Sail with the design that the school requested and a quote was created and sent to the school.

The school was happy with the quote and wanted to place an order – there was a slight delay as there was a issue with the planning permission as the council were not satisfied with the designs put forward. A few more designs were put forward and eventually planning permission was granted and the order was placed.

The Canopy was installed and the school was happy with the end result.
