Ark Ayrton Primary Academy wanted to create a fun, vibrant Trim Trail area to promote physical outdoor fitness during playtimes. The use of brightly coloured safety surfacing was requested in order to highlight the different items of equipment. A large seating area was required in the quiet corner of the playground to allow outdoor assemblies and teaching.
THE DESIGN We worked alongside Ark Ayrton to create a bespoke Challenger Trim Trail circuit that would specifically target their individual playground requirements and get pupils active during break times. To ensure the playground complied with the relevant safety standards, we incorporated our Wetpour Safety Surfacing into the area and used a variety of bright colours to really make it a key feature of the playground and to meet . In addition to this area, we used a number of our popular One-20 Benches to create a large outdoor seating area, perfect for performances or outdoor assemblies. With additional play pieces such as a large Pyramid Shelter, Shop Front Playboards and a Trellis Archway, Ark Ayrtons new playground now provides students with a wide variety of play experiences.
THE INSTALLATION With numerous play areas at Ark Ayrton it was essential that everyone worked together to ensure a successful installation.
The wide variety of equipment and surfacing transformed the playground into a vibrant and engaging space, providing the children at Ark Ayrton Primary Academy with fun and challenging pieces of equipment.
