Outdoor Climbing Frames & Play Towers
Active play is a great way of encouraging a healthy lifestyle from a young age. It also keeps young minds agile and engaged. At Hand Made Places we design, manufacture and install a large range of outdoor play units and wooden climbing frames to challenge users of all ages and abilities, ensuring that a playground visit is always fun.
Our timber play towers and playground climbing frames incorporate various activities and elements so that there is something for every ability. Scramble nets, pull up ramps and steps are linked by bridges and platforms to chutes, slides and firefighter poles. Our collection includes the Timble range built specifically for Early Years Settings as well as a variety of multiplay units perfect for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 age groups. These come in various heights and sizes from the Henry IV play castle to the Sunflower Play Unit. All of our play towers spur children on to take part in activities which strengthen muscles and bones, build confidence and develop coordination. Perfect for school playgrounds, leisure sites, holiday destinations and parks and recreation grounds, our active play units also encourage interaction between different peer groups, improving their social skills.
Older children may prefer an outdoor climbing frame – the perfect accompaniment to our multiplay units and play towers. Thanks to careful design, children's climbing frames from Hand Made Places ensure that they aren’t made to feel under pressure from those who are more mobile and confident. The various platforms and levels provide an area to rest, socialise and play whilst children remain a part of the group. For a trickier obstacle to overcome, our Amazon Rope Climber or Space Net are good choices, allowing children the opportunity to climb at height but in a safe and controlled environment. The Ashbury Climbing Frame offers an interesting mix of physical challenges while our range of Heron’s, Hawk’s and Bird’s Nest playground climbing frames can also be incorporated into school playground games and imaginative play.
Trim Trails are a popular active play choice for children's playgrounds. Trim Trails can be used to support PE lessons as well as offer active play times for pupils. Trim Trails are also a good climbing frame alternative in community playgrounds which are catering for a wider range of ages and abilities. They provide inclusive play opportunities as the equipment choice can be tailored to all levels. Adventure playgrounds offer themed outdoor playground climbing frames which look fantastic in holiday parks and leisure sites.
All of our high-quality wooden play units and climbing frames are built to the highest safety standards and are designed to be durable and robust enough to withstand repeated outdoor play.
