Shared experiences lead to strong friendships.
That’s why we design playgrounds where children of all abilities can have fun together.
Whether it’s at a school, in the community or a play facility hosted by a leisure site, our range of active, imaginative and sensory play equipment generates social benefits for children too.
Learning through trying something new together helps to build connections, while having dedicated space and time to play together nurtures friendships.

Buddy up through active play

Our inclusive play equipment is designed to be used by children and young people of all abilities, and parents or carers too!
We focus on accessibility, investing in new products and coming up with fresh ways to unlock play experiences.
Disability equality charity Scope is calling for better investment in inclusive playgrounds which keep children safe and engaged.
It comes after it carried out research which showed half of families with disabled children felt their local playground wasn’t accessible.
In our Inclusive Play range, our products include the likes of the Wave Rocker, which considers the needs of children with physical, cognitive and sensory disabilities.
It offers supportive seating and wheelchair transfer height to bring six children together to enjoy the controlled rocking movement, similar to a traditional see saw.
Swings are always a firm favourite and our selection now includes the wheelchair accessible iSwing and the Sit Up Swing which accommodates two users at a wheelchair friendly height and with added back support.
Traditional playgrounds wouldn’t be complete without a roundabout and the Wheelspin fits the bill perfectly with wheelchair access, anti slip surface, grip rails and seats.

Explore through imaginative play

With our trampolines, such as the Rolli Trampoline, children are transformed into astronauts rocketing into space, they are giants looking down on the earth or jumping frogs crossing the pond.
Our Play Den becomes anything from a shop to a play house while Hide and Seek Panels offer spaces for everyone to dodge the seeker.
Imaginative play includes creative space such as outdoor Stages, or Outdoor Musical Instruments for those dreaming of a career under the spotlight.
Or our Holey Poles can bring out the builder or architect in young ones as they work together to build a shelter.

Understand the world through sensory play

Small world play is ideal for helping children make sense of what they see and experience in their every day lives.
Our Mini Micro World Tables accommodate this by providing different settings to play with the likes of toy cars and figures.
Manufactured at our purpose-built timber workshop in North Staffordshire, they can be designed to the right height for all users.
Sand and water play can be accessed and enjoyed by all through our Sand Pits and water trays like Atlantic 1.
And eco play allows children to get their hands dirty with raised Planters, a Mud Kitchen and Discovery Tables among our collection of inclusive play equipment.

Outdoor play for physical and mental wellbeing

Being outdoors in the open air has been shown to boost physical and mental wellbeing.
Designing a playground for all to enjoy and benefit from includes creating quiet space and socialising space through Playground Furniture.
Activity Panels, such as Finger Mazes, Chalk Boards and Mirrors, engage those who need time out from rough and tumble.
Meanwhile the likes of our Totems support the development of communication skills, and story corners, featuring our iconic Storyteller's Chair, draw everyone together to listen and bond over a good book.

Our teams work with clients to design, manufacture and install inclusive playgrounds in a wide range of settings. Get in touch to discuss your ideas today.
