This is entirely up to you, but we do work all year round in schools and we can keep our installers securely separated from the pupils with HERAs fencing, ensuring any deliveries occur either before or after the school day. If it helps, we can turn a term time installation into a learning opportunity for the pupils, where we can educate them about materials and construction.
However, there are schools and sites that will need their playgrounds installed during the holidays and we will guide you if this is the case.
Lots! Click here to see a selection of Case Studies from SEN to MUGAs, Timber Trails to Outdoor Classrooms, with more details on our Blog. But if you can’t find what you are looking for give us a call and we can send some more information through.
Yes. All our timber is Forestry Standard Certified (FSC), and we use Radiata treated with Tanalith E, a modern wood preservative which gives long term protection against decay and insect attack. The sustainability and environmental impact of our wooden products is important, with most of the timber we use being grown and felled from managed forests across Scotland.
The sustainability of all our materials and products is incredibly important. We have deliberately designed our playground equipment to minimise the use of single use plastics and HDPE where possible.
The British and European Standard for playground equipment and surfacing is BS EN 1176-7.
Whilst the playground standards are not a legal requirement, it should be expected that playground equipment is designed in accordance with these standards, as this will support the school in the event of an accident/claim. However, the standards do not on their own make a playground safe and the overall design is also critical in managing risk/reward.
Absolutely! Please bring this up in your first call with us and we'll point you in the right direction, or read our detailed blog post.
