Welcome to PlayEquip, we are well known for our ability to produce fantastic bespoke playground designs that are completely site specific. We can show you how to make the most out of the space and budget that you have available, and help to create a playground that perfectly suits your individual needs. We also produce catalogue playground equipment, that can be purchased individually or used to create a larger playground design.
Our UK based workshop works to the highest standard and aims to dramatically reduce lead times for all of our playground equipment. We are able to supply and install playground equipment in under 28 days, even if our products are tailored to specifications.
PlayEquip are here to design, or assist in the design of your perfect playground. From conception to construction, our designers and on site workforce have a comprehensive understanding of the European Playground Equipment Standards (EN 1176). This gives you the freedom to develop the perfect project with confidence, knowing that however wacky or quirky the playground is, the design is completely safe for all ages. We understand that every project is unique and that the most effective way to make the most of your space / budget is to design site specific playground.
Environmental Impact and Sustainability
We take the environmental impact of playground design very seriously. We source all of our materials from the UK, reducing our CO2 footprint by limiting excessive transportation costs that come with importing equipment from the rest of the world. We are proud to say that our wooden playground equipment is made using locally sourced timber and built in our workshop here in the UK. All timber used is certified as FSC. We also use as little plastic as possible in our designs and packaging.
We have a hand picked selection of materials that we believe work best for playground use. Timber is the key ingredient of most of our playground equipment and we only use chemical-free wood. All of the timber we use have qualities that make then naturally resilient to rot. Through our time with working with different types of timber, we’ve noticed the drawbacks to working with chemically treated wood. Our organic approach is better for the environment and better for your health.
Oak is well known for its natural durability. This locally sourced timber works best in our climate where playground equipment is in contact with the ground.
We use larch as the main component above ground. It’s high resin content (a natural antiseptic) makes it as durable as treated timber, but doesn’t chemically corrode fixings.
For more of an even more natural looking playground we love to use robinia. Robinia is a european hardwood that provides an incredibly durable ‘in ground’ connection. The uneven yet smooth poles used bring a rustic aesthetic that is very popular.
We only use the highest quality stainless steel and galvanised fixings for our playground equipment. Engineered and guaranteed to last 20+ years.
