Enhancing The Clifton Centre PRU with AMV Playgrounds' Innovative Solutions


AMV Playgrounds supply sheltered cycle storage and colourful rotationally moulded plastic seating to the Clifton Centre PRU in Clifton, Greater Manchester.

The Setting

The Clifton Centre Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) is a specialised educational facility catering to students who require additional support and intervention due to challenging behaviour, learning difficulties, or other factors. The institution recognises the importance of creating a safe, welcoming, and conducive learning environment for its students. To address this objective, The Clifton Centre PRU partnered with AMV Playgrounds to supply and install sheltered cycle parking and vibrant rotationally moulded plastic seating solutions for the benefit of staff and students.

The Solution

AMV Playgrounds put forward colourful and inviting seating options that could be strategically placed throughout the outdoor space of the PRU to create spots for relaxation, group discussions, and creative activities. The Lava seat and HopOp 500 stools are formed with rotationally moulded Polyurethane to create a seamless, soft and flexible surface with no sharp edges and also feature hidden ground fixings which were key factors in why these products were chosen for the facility. The range is also incredibly durable and requires minimal maintenance.
The playful, appealing shape of LAVA attracts interaction and creates a casual atmosphere. This organic seating unit seats 5-7 people and fits into urban spaces, parks, schools and company headquarters alike. 

To meet the needs and incentivise students and staff to travel to the setting on bike, an upgraded cycling parking area was proposed.
The Dahl Shelter is one of AMVs most popular cycle storage products thanks to its adaptive and reliable design. The Clifton Centre opted for a 4100mm version to accommodate up to 10 bikes with the addition of a Sheffield Toastrack. The Dahl Shelter can be easily scaled up to meet any number of cycle parking spaces required.
