Fantastic Outdoor Gym Equipment
We have extended our range of outdoor gym equipment for children, teens and adults. These machines have proved really popular across Europe and will really help to improve fitness, strength and co-ordination from children aged 5+.
All our outdoor gym equipment conforms to EN 16630 – the standard for quality and safety for outdoor gym equipment.
We have timber equipment that looks great in a playground, park or woodland setting as well as steel equipment designed to be more like traditional indoor gym equipment (but made safe and robust for outdoor use)
Bespoke Playground Solutions – Much Cheaper Than You Think
We love creating new playground designs! Because we manufacture our play equipment using a modular design approach (here in the UK) we can easily create one-off designs or adapt our existing designs either to fit a theme you want or to fit into an awkward space.
Our playground designers can create transform play towers or adventure climbing frames into a shipwreck or fort and can also incorporate an outdoor classroom too.
Playground Surfacing Solutions
Many pieces of playground equipment, like climbing frames and swings need to have some kind of safety surface. This maybe to protect areas from turning into a muddy bog, or to ensure that children do not injure themselves.
We take child safety in the playground very seriously and always try to create play areas that are both fun for the kids AND safe.
We also make sure that playground surfaces are installed correctly and provide many years of trouble free use.
- See our wetpour playground rubber surfaces. These can also have fantastic colourful patterns to encourage play
- Tiger Mulch – recycled rubber play bark
- Play bark – natural woodchips for safe play
- Safer grass – Safergrass mats are an impact absorbing playground safety surface suitable for a wide range of playground equipment
- Artificial grass – durable no maintenance artificial turf – great for play areas that turn to mud when it rains
