Durable, Portable, and Customizable Playground Shelters and Outdoor Classrooms

The durability of WeatherPort playground shelters and outdoor classrooms is unmatched. Our team of designers and engineers have spent more than 50 years engineering and perfecting the materials we use to be the longest lasting. Our playground shelters and outdoor classrooms employ the highest-quality PVC-based tensioned membrane material that blocks harmful UV rays, is UV-stabilized (not coated!), will not rot, is resistant to mold and mildew, and exceeds the California Code of Regulations (CCR) for membrane structures.

Unlike fabric shade structures that require removing the shade fabric to prevent damage during severe weather, WeatherPort playground structures and outdoor classrooms are designed to be set up and left in place year-round. Alternatively, each WeatherPort playground structure or outdoor classroom can be easily taken down, moved to another location, or used seasonally, as needed. Our structures’ high-strength metal frames are designed to offer a higher degree of portability than most fabric shade structures, enabling schools, businesses, and parks to quickly create community spaces for the following applications:

  • Playground covers
  • Outdoor classrooms
  • Picnic shelters
  • Covered bleachers
  • Dugouts
  • Gazebos and event pavilions
  • Amphitheaters and stage covers for outdoor events
  • Walkway covers and sidewalk covers
  • Carousel
  • Kiosks and concession stands
  • Bus stops

Custom-design a playground shelter to protect commercial playground equipment and ensure a safe play time for school children or park guests, regardless of the weather. Alternatively, designing an outdoor classroom can allow your students to learn in an outdoor environment and enable safe, open-air teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Choose from a wide selection of engineered fabric building styles and shapes, sizes, and colors to create unique and beautiful playground structures and outdoor classrooms. We also offer in-house printing directly onto our tensioned fabric membranes, allowing schools, parks, or businesses to promote their name, brand identity, or create visually stunning outdoor structures that serve as functional art pieces.

WeatherPort building specialists have extensive experience working with school board authorities, school district administrators, as well as city parks and recreation departments, state planning agencies, and businesses to create custom-designed outdoor structures!

Outdoor Classrooms for Safe Schooling During Covid-19

Outdoor classrooms have been crucial in enabling safe schooling during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing additional classroom space for social distancing and creating an open-air environment in which the virus is less likely to spread.

WeatherPort fabric structures are the perfect solution for creating outdoor classrooms because they’re quick to set up, incredibly safe and durable in any climate, and easy to store, move, or repurpose once the pandemic is over. But don’t take our word for it — see how Synapse School and Hanger Hall relied on WeatherPort outdoor classrooms to safely reopen during the coronavirus pandemic.
