Schools COLA

Schools COLA

If you need protection from the elements, we have a range of buildings specifically engineered and designed to suit your needs. Unlike fabric covers that allow penetration of harmful UV rays, the Ranbuild Schoolmaster design provides solid shade and maximum shelter from the sun and rain.

Ranbuild Covered Outdoor Learning Areas (COLAs) come in a wide range of shapes and sizes with models suitable for small lunch areas or large playgrounds. All main structural members are fabricated from premium quality galvanised steel, fastened with high tensile grade 8.8 zinc plated bolts and nuts. Sub frame members are bolted between the main frames to prevent twisting and distortion under wind load.

Safety and security under cover are also important, particularly where children are involved. We have removed the potentially dangerous diagonal wall braces and replaced them with lateral braces high up the columns and out of harm’s way. Ranbuild COLAs also feature unique ‘folded edge’ column flashings to reduce the risk of contact with sharp metal edges.

Extra protection is available with the addition of curtain walls and gable infills. These low cost and functional additions provide a barrier from wind and driving rain. Talk to Dural Sheds & Garages about your COLA needs.
