Quality, tensile fabric structures for the education sector

Are you looking for an inspirational yet cost effective solution for outside covered space in your school?

Whether you’re seeking safe shaded areas for play and outdoor classroom activities, or to cover walkways for protection from the rain and the elements, Aura canopies provide a cost effective, stylish addition to your school environment.

Schools who enquire about canopies tell us that they need a cost-effective solution for more space. They usually assume that a traditional building or wooden structure is the answer, and are surprised to discover what is possible using a high quality tensile fabric canopy. Not only a range of beautiful shapes but a fantastic choice of colours too mean that a tensile fabric structure from Aura is an attractive addition to any school.

Aura structures are manufactured in the UK which enables us to pay careful attention to cost without compromising quality. Build and installation is handled by our expert installation team. So you get the quality space you need at a cost-effective rate.

School canopies designed for playground shade, shelter, outdoor classrooms or your individual requirements

You choose from a pre-designed range of canopies which can be configured to suit your available space and requirements. This flexible, modular approach helps us to keep the cost down, as well as complement the school architecture. Aura canopies can be linked together and the shapes combined to achieve the space you need. Alternatively we can design a bespoke structure to meet your needs, drawing on our fast experience of creating fabric architecture that is interesting, inspiring and provides a stimulating space for your students. After all, Aura means a sense of light and space.
