Schools

We do a lot of work for schools as young children need protection from the elements and we’re quite used to working around the curriculum and meeting health & safety requirements.

Maintenance contract
We can provide maintenance contracts whereby we collect the sails in the Autumn, inspect them to see if they need valeting and/or repairing and organise the appropriate action following approval of costs.  We will then keep them here over the winter in our sail loft in ideal conditions ready to re-install them on a date of choice in the Spring. This is a highly popular option with schools to ensure that their investment is protected year after year.

  

Design options
We will do our best to match up your school colours so that your sails can provide a creative statement as well as a solution to shading your children.  In the examples above the colours were chosen to match school colours and in the example in the middle we even put special ‘post bumpers’ onto the bottom of the posts to help protect children from hurting themselves.  These bumpers can be supplied in most colours and with either circular or square circumferences.

We will be happy to project manage your installation from site visit through to final installation, or work with you to provide the elements you need if you have an in-house or local team that can install posts and look after the sail for you.

Our fitters all understand health & safety and the requirements of schools to protect the young people in their care so you will have nothing to worry about if you instruct Jeckells the Sailmakes regarding your desired shading solution!
