Safety is our priority

All of our outdoor playground equipment is designed and manufactured in-house and meets the stringent requirements of BSEN1176. We take the safety of our customers and the end user very seriously and this is reflected in the materials we use along with the design and manufacturing processes employed.

We offer a range of playground surfacing, tested to BSEN1177 including wetpour safety surfacing, rubber mulch and artificial grass. All surfaces are installed by our own specialist teams rather than using a sub-contractor.
