Safety in Design
As RoSPA members we consider the safety and suitability of our play equipment with the utmost importance. Intelligent design and uncompromising safety standards ensure that that all of our creations are as safe as they are fun.
YOU DREAM IT, WE BUILD IT
Using the play area that we created at Samlesbury Hall, the following two videos showcase how we take an idea from concept to reality .
PLAY EQUIPMENT THAT WE MAKE
We can make anything. To demonstrate this, click any of the images below to see more about each type of item.
If you want to see a collection of all our individual projects, you can see them on our past creations page.
Some of our regular creations in the past include outdoor play areas, indoor play areas, playhouses (Wendy houses), play castles, pirate ships, replica landmarks, play trains, tree houses, themed interiors, play tractors, themed furniture, rooftop play areas, multi-play towers, and traditional play apparatus. We often incorporate seating and picnic areas, and wooden sculptures and carvings into our play areas, but use all of this only as a source of inspiration – whatever ideas you have for your play area, we can bring to life.
OUR PUBLIC PLAY AREAS
We have delivered private play apparatus all over the UK and Europe, as well as to Asia, The Middle East, North America, and Asia. Below is a map of our public play areas. All of the icons are clickable and will give you more information about the particular play area.
We love to create themed play equipment and one of our favourite themes to follow is recreating play versions of existing structures or machines. Below is a collection of some of our replica landmarks, along with the real structure or machine that we based the play equipment design on. Whilst it is possible for us to make exact clones, we generally focus on making engaging play apparatus that captures the main characteristics of the structure, making it instantly recognisable.
As everything we make is completely bespoke, we can replicate whatever you desire, be it a famous landmark, machine, house, or anything else – even something from a fairy tale or movie. We can do realistic, true-to-life recreations or we can focus only on the most distinguishing features to make an engaging play area that is recognisable without compromising play potential. Whatever your needs, we can make your perfect piece of play apparatus.
How To Order
Tell us a little about the project and thoughts you might already have. Russell, our founder and designer, will then be in touch. Often we will visit the area and research the theme comprehensively.
You’ll receive a drawn plan, written proposal and a fixed price quote for the project, along with any recommendations for design and materials.
If you’re happy with the proposal then construction begins. We’ll send you pictures and updates ready for when we deliver and install.
