Kindergarten and School Awnings and Canopies

Fresco Shades have been designing and installing canopies for the educational market for many years. We are a well-established brand and testimonials are available on request.
School awnings and Classroom Shades – cut the heat and glare in summer while providing a dry area outside the classroom year round. Classroom Shades can be used as a sheltered spot to eat lunch, play, or even hold lessons outside.
Importantly, the French made PVC roof also cuts 99% of the sun’s harsh UV – ideal to meet “Shady Schools” guidelines. In summer the canopy will reduce heat build-up in the classroom, while still allowing the winter sun in.
One of the biggest issues facing kindergartens is space. Another is what to do with the children on a wet day! Fresco kindergarten canopies are ideal for creating an extra outdoor room for activities, as well as space to allow children to let off steam in wet weather.
Outdoor play areas also often need protection or shade. Whether sand pits, swimming pools, playground equipment or areas beside the main building, a kindergarten awning by Fresco Shades will provide a more pleasant environment for pupils, and you can relax knowing they are also being protected against harsh UV rays.

Link Buildings

Some schools have transformed their space by linking classrooms and halls or other buildings to create a sheltered central meeting or play area.

Create an extra area for learning or play

No shelter from the rain? No protection from the sun? No problem! With a Fresco Canopy, children can enjoy an outdoor play area whatever the weather.

Walkways & Seated Areas

Provide shelter all year round so students and teachers can move between classrooms in comfort, with either a free standing or attached walkway.

School Shops

A canopy is an ideal way to provide sun and rain protection for students when they are queued at the Tuck Shop.

Our Fresco canopy allows us to keep cool in summer and stay warm in winter. The kids can escape there on rainy days and still be outside. All our activities are now outside; it's given us heaps more space. The kids use the space every day.

Lil Bamber from Kingsdene Kindergarten

We are extremely thrilled with our Fresco shade… (it) is not only functional but the design compliments our building and the impact of this roofing on the way we use our facility has been significant. Our available play space for children has almost doubled and we now enjoy less weather-related interruptions to play… we are able to provide a diverse range of learning opportunities irrespective of the weather.
