Tepees For Schools
With the expansion of outdoor learning and forest school in education it is essential to have the space to facilitate this. A tepee provides a space to help youngsters connect with the great outdoors. The wooden poles and the canvas helps create a peaceful environment that is perfect for meditation, forest school or just to connect the outdoors.
Tested and proven in the event’s industry our manufacturer’s tepees have been used in permanent installations nationwide. Durable and built to withstand the worst of the British Weather they can be used all year round. The canvas is made from a blend of cotton and synthetic fibre, that is water repellent yet breathable. In addition to these characteristics, the canvas is also flame retardant. The fabric meets BS 7837, DIN 4102 B2 and NF 92-503 class:M1 standards. While the poles are made from slow growing Scandinavian timber which is also supplied to the ladder industry due to their straightness and dependability, where they conform to BS1129 – the most stringent industrial class in the access sector.
All of our Tepees are installed on a wooden floor to provide a functional base. A one meter long ramp is placed at the front of the tepee to provide disabled access. Our tepees can be installed upon hardstanding (playgrounds) or upon soft standing (grass).
