A solid-as-a-rock umbrella to make the most of your seating areas

Home  /  School Canopies  /  Atacama


There’s nothing nicer than seeing your students learning, eating and relaxing outside – and our Atacama umbrella makes that possible come rain or shine.

We know that some umbrellas can be a bit of a liability, but our Atacama umbrella is strong enough to give you great shelter all year round – in fact, it’s the strongest in the world! No matter what the weather throws at it, the canopy is fully waterproof, blocks UV rays and comes in our largest range of colours yet. You can even have your nursery, school or college logo put on it.

Atacama comes in a range of sizes and its square shape means you can easily group a few of them together to create a great learning, eating or social space. Wherever we install them, they’re an instant hit – and will go on providing protection from the elements for years and years to come. And because we’re so sure of their ability to stand up to anything, each one comes with our hassle-free 10-year warranty.
