How do we make them?

First of all, our outdoor buildings/classrooms are built from sustainable, pressure treated timbers (as is our play equipment)  This means that you can be sure that we are using the best timbers available.  We use chunky, 6/2 timbers for our head plates and rafters, therefore you can be confident that this is built to last..  The posts are 150mm rounded, radiata and cemented in 500mm.  All paneling is made from 25mm TGV with rounded corner 4/2 rails.

Sometimes it’s hard to find the space for a stand alone outdoor building.  Discovery build bespoke canopies that can be designed and fitted to your existing building.  It greatly increases the learning space by giving the teachers an additional zone.  We’ve been lucky enough to build a few of these in the past and every one of them has been different.  We can add half panels, full panels, chalkboards, gates, storage, different roofing options.  Because of this the options are limitless!

Canopy Design

All of our canopy frames are made from our standard, treated 4/2 timbers with 4×4 posts.  These can be fitted to almost any building/wall.  We fix the main head plate then use our 4×4 posts to keep the frame in place.  We use high quality, aluminium fixing bars and poly carbonate sheeting for the roof and is available in either brown or white.
