Playground Equipment Design and Installation

We are best known for our adaptable playground equipment, and this is true for the many unique installations that we have made on podium roofs. The adaptability of our designs means site specific designs to foundation, build ups and accessibility are easy to factor in.

With structural calculations and drawings adhering to European standards, prepared by qualified structural engineers, we offer peace of mind when adapting playground equipment. However, we frequently advise the use of self-supporting playground equipment on podium roof spaces. These structures require less complicated footings for installation, providing a simpler and more efficient solution.

Concrete Plinth Formation

A crucial component of our installation process is the formation of concrete plinths to support the playground equipment securely. Our team employs precise engineering and construction techniques to ensure the stability and durability of the plinths, considering factors such as load-bearing capacity and structural integrity.
