Outdoor Classrooms & Gazebos

Our Outdoor Gazebos have been specifically designed for Foundation Phase teaching, which requires pupils to leave the classroom to participate in outdoor learning. With seating capacity for up to forty children, this timber shelter makes an ideal base for external lessons as well as a place for pupils to play, eat and socialise.

In addition to schools, our timber Gazebos can be used by hotels, community sites, hospitals, universities and parks. It is a substantial, high-specification and low maintenance timber building, designed to withstand continuous year round use.

“P&A installed our gazebo/outdoor class area along with some other equipment last year. Since then it has been in almost constant daily use. The quality of workmanship is high and the assistance/advice provided during planning and installation was very comprehensive. I can recommend this product and company without reservation — it has been money well spent.”
