The provision of shade plays an important part of a schools obligation to provide a sun safe environment for their pupils. As part of our Sun Safe Schools national accreditation scheme, Skcin have worked closely with thousands of primary and pre-schools on all aspects of sun safety and have launched the Sun Safe Schools Shade Project with our Shade Partner UVR, to help provide accessible and cost effective shade solutions.

Children spend a great deal of time outdoors at schools and/or pre-school during the Summer months, often when UV penetration is at it’s peak (between 11am and 3pm) and the provision of shade is a key element of the five S’s of Sun Safety we teach our children to enjoy the sun safely.

We know from experience key challenges for schools to implement shade structures are cost and local council planning permission and with this in mind

Skcin are pleased to offer this cost effective solution that’s made to fit with posts of 2.4 metres removing in the vast majority of cases, the need for planning permission.

Discounted, high quality, accredited and hassle free, supplied and installed by one of the countries most trusted educational play equipment suppliers - Fawns and manufactured by one of the worlds leading UPF fabric manufacturers Coolaroo - Skcin are pleased to be working in association with UVR to bring these quality shade solutions to the UK market and get schools on-board with the Shade Project.

Our stylish and durable, Knitted Sail Shades give 90% UV protection. Fix to walls, trees, fences, posts with our easy attachment accessories, or use one of our Sail Shade Poles. Got a square, triangular or rectangular space? Or perhaps yours is the awkward kind, a space you’re not sure what to do with? We’ve got you covered. Our shade sails come in a range of shapes, sizes and colours to create an affordable architectural statement, but most importantly an effective shade solution.

We provide a range of sail canopies that are easy to assemble and offer excellent value for money. Our shade sails can be designed to include activities, seating and tables being added at any time to enhance the area.

50% of all net profits are donated directly to Skcin, to assist the us in the fulfilment of our national Sun Safe Schools and Nurseries accreditation schemes - developed by Skcin to assist schools and parents in working together to educate children on the importance of sun safety and prevent skin cancer.
