A shady spot in the sandbox

In day-care centres and kindergartens, the children and their well-being naturally come first. It is therefore obvious that the outdoor area of such facilities should also be designed in a child-friendly way. As life takes place outside, especially in summer, suitable sun protection is essential. The markilux team : project is available to help kindergarten managers find the best solution. You can get an impression of the possibilities from the following examples of successful kindergarten projects.

Kindergarten Eschwege: A sandbox that invites you to play

The large outdoor area of the kindergarten in Eschwege is a dream for playing, romping and running. In order to provide the children with the best possible protection when building sandcastles, a markilux syncra flex was installed with the markilux 990. This provides optimum shade for the area. Thanks to the weighting boxes, the markilux syncra does not need a concrete foundation at all. The boxes also serve as a seating area.

Kindergarten Riedenburg: More play space for children

A large lawn with plenty of space to play - a paradise for children. But due to the location in the middle of a residential area, there are unfortunately no shady trees. In order to still offer the children a protected play area outside, two markilux syncra fix paired with a markilux 1600 were installed. The awnings now cover climbing frames and slides so that nothing stands in the way of exuberant play.

Langenbrettach day care centre: Sun and weather protection

The small outdoor area of the kindergarten in Langenbrettach was equipped with a markilux syncra uno in combination with a markilux 1600. Mounting on the house wall is not necessary due to the fastening in the ground. This way, the awning fits perfectly into the available space and the structural conditions. Thanks to the sun protection, the play area in the fresh air is now optimally shaded.

The Vitis kindergarten in Austria was also equipped with markilux sun shading systems. Each kindergarten group has its own outdoor area with seating groups for eating breakfast or lunch together in the fresh air. In addition, the area can also be used for creative activities such as handicrafts or modelling. Even when the sun is shining, the kindergarten children are well protected here and can spend the day outside.

Awnings for a playground in the shade

Aggressive sun rays are particularly harmful for children. Therefore, good sun protection is indispensable. The markilux team : project can shine in this area with experience and the best sun protection knowledge, so that individual solutions can be planned and implemented. Regardless of whether shade is required in an open area, on the building or in the building: our wide range of products offers perfect sun and weather protection for daycare centres and kindergartens that meets your needs.

Free-standing and flexible: markilux syncra

The markilux syncra provides shade where you want it - optionally with one or two awnings, which can also be controlled independently of each other. If a large area is to be shaded, the markilux syncra can also be linked. The attachment also depends on your requirements: If anchoring to the ground is not an option, weighting boxes can be used. The weighting boxes can also be used as a bench. So if you need a break between building sandcastles, playing tag and hide-and-seek, you can relax on the benches.

markilux planet for the best shade under the sun

The markilux planet is an awning and sunshade in one. If, for example, you want to shade the sandpit without mounting it on the building, this model is exactly the right choice and an alternative to the markilux syncra. The flexibility of the awning shade is particularly practical. The shade can not only be controlled by retracting and extending the awning: the Easy-Go lever also allows the markilux planet to be rotated by up to 335°. This makes it child's play to direct the shade to where it will best protect your charges. The markilux planet can be combined with various customised markilux folding arm awnings. They are attached to the support column of the markilux planet.
