Custom Canopies for Schools

123v Plc specialise in school canopies and playground covers which protect children from harsh UV rays, rain, snow and other weather. Our custom-made school shelters provide nurseries and schools with the most robust construction solutions, designed to make the education environment more versatile and create a modern, high-tech feel. By installing 123v playground covers, we enable children to play and learn outside all year long, come rain or shine.


Here at 123v, we believe that encouraging outdoor learning is vital for the personal development and growth of children. Research has indicated that increased physical activity among children helps in their intellectual and social development. A great way to encourage such outdoor activities at school is by installing a play shelter or a school canopy structure on the premises.


Adding a covered play area to your school or nursery has the advantage of providing an area that will stay dry and protect equipment fixed or stored under the canopy. These custom canopy structures are popular with nurseries and pre-schools as they allow the children to be outside a lot more, even when the weather is far from ideal. This effectively increases the space available to the establishment and can be a great asset during busy periods when space is at a premium.

123v have designed and manufactured nursery canopies for covered play areas throughout the UK. Fitting is normally arranged during holidays or at another convenient time in order to minimise disruption to the daily routine. Our school canopies use GRP sheeting to our own design specifications that is 85% translucent and contains a UV filter to protect sensitive skin.


Covered play areas can be designed and constructed in an assortment of shapes and sizes. The design process for 123v playground covers and school shelters is very much dependent on the layout of the school and the shape and size of the play area. That’s why dealing with a company with its own in-house design and engineering teams turns possibilities into reality. Our wide range of school canopy structures can be used for a variety of purposes, and are beautifully designed to integrate into almost any environment.


All components are manufactured to order in our company’s own UK factories. 123v fitting teams install playground covers and school shelters across the UK and, upon completion, we issue a full 10 year guarantee on all parts and labour. All 123v staff are fully trained and CRB checked for the installation of school shelters. To ensure the safety of our customers and employees, we also operate strictly under the grounding principles of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
