We are PlayEquip

We are PlayEquip; a leading UK playground equipment supplier. We specialise in being the solution for play areas and playground equipment for any space. We believe life is a far better place if we can play, and with evidence to back up the value of play for our children’s wellbeing and educational attainment, we are proud to be able to offer our services to those looking to bring quality equipment into the playground, the park or the garden.

For more than 15 years, we have been the chosen supplier to commercial projects looking to add play value to their developments. Working within community hubs, schools, playgrounds, parks and public spaces our equipment has helped to build play areas and playground equipment all over the country. We pride ourselves on not just tackling the bigger projects but also offering an affordable answer for many home gardens, as we are just as enthusiastic to offer advice and supply a lone piece of playground equipment right through to a complete redesign of a community play space.

As well as the direct sale of wooden ready-made playground equipment, which can be ordered and delivered quickly, we also offer a full design and installation service where required.  We are also specialists in the development of bespoke playground projects, literally from the ground up.  We will work in consultation with you to create the perfect design for your play space, supply, install and keep to your budget whilst we turn your vision into a reality.

Our experts can manage all aspects of your playground design. Our initial playground consultations will establish the best use of the area you have available, and our range of ideas provide inspiration to help you create the ultimate playground installation both within budget and at speed. 

Our full range of play equipment meets all required safety standards and is guaranteed to give many long years of service and pleasure to children of all ages. Our designers and playground installation teams are experts in safety legislation and ensure that each development whether bespoke or a standard equipment fit, from a single item to an entire playground space is carried out to meet and where possible exceed all legislative safety requirements.

Our playground equipment is constructed using hardwood timber and steel that ensures low maintenance and this has made it the number one choice for both private clients and institutions such as architects and developers when choosing the ideal playground design and range of play equipment for their builds. The type of timber used and our construction methods means that the wood does not require any additional chemical treatment and is guaranteed for 15 years. We use top quality rope in our construction, which comes with a 2-year guarantee and can be replaced easily.

Giving children of all ages (including young at heart adults) play opportunities is so important in today’s modern age, where computer games means many spend more time indoors now than any other.  It is vitally important that the play opportunities we offer are exciting, challenging and interesting to draw children and adults outside regularly.  We believe our range of play and fitness equipment fits the bill perfectly.  With it, we aim to provide ideal opportunities for both social interaction and solo play.  Our playground ideas and designs provide perfect play opportunities by using our extensive and growing range of play products and equipment to their best advantage. Both our readily available products on our product pages through to our custom designed bespoke options for your play space allow children from all age groups the interaction and inclusive play opportunities that are vital to their social and emotional development.

Encouraging both fine and gross motor skill development through our play equipment will help your children’s concentration, improve their sleep patterns and give them a reason to switch off technology and get outside in the fresh air, which we know through research helps them with their studies as well as being good for their general health and wellbeing!  And, as an adult we have just the fitness equipment to challenge you also.

Quality playground installations will allow children (and yes, even adults!) to benefit from regular exercise and fun something we should all encourage.  Our vision and expertise in creating playground design options using our range of wooden and steel outdoor playground equipment will ensure your new playground area has equipment that will last for many years, with very little maintenance required to keep it looking great.

Our inclusive play solutions provide opportunities for children of all ages to engage in outdoor play, choosing or designing from a vast range to ensure that all abilities have the ideal place to play safely and have fun in the outside world. Our use of wood creates a tactile experience for users, whilst being far more environmentally friendly for our planet we need to protect. Providing a more natural experience for our children we believe is far better than the many plastic offerings in the world of playground equipment. We also believe it lasts better too.

Our range is only as limited as our imagination, and that is something we have worked hard on over the years, and are yet to find its limits. We have certainly learnt well, with many of clients returning repeatedly when they require additional play equipment for an existing site or when a new project needs our flair and inspiration to bring to life the playground of dreams for the children they serve.

Local sustainable materials

We pride ourselves on using sustainable wood which we source locally, which we manufacture to the highest quality to ensure our equipment is as hardwearing and sustainable as the trees we use to make it.  Our use of steel in the manufacture of fittings and additional elements of the play equipment, such as slides and fixings ensure that their lifespan is long and they are as durable and sustainable as the wood they sit in. 

We use quality rope, some of which has a lateral steel core, to ensure it will carry the load easily required of it. Whilst these elements requirement replacement periodically, our use of the highest quality rope available to meet the high usage expected of our equipment such as wobble boards and climbing frames ensures that replacement of these is kept to a minimum.

Our choice of timbers ensures that chemical preservation is not necessary to keep them in good order, again adding to the environmentally friendly nature of our play areas.
