Playground Equipment


I was wondering if anyone could recommend a playground equipment manufacturer with high design quality? [i.e. not cheesy colored plastic stuff]

I saw an issue of this once:

Maybe there are resources on the site, or you could track down a recent issue.

anybody recently seen any of those old spaceage 1950's steel ellipsoid climbing structures? I'd love to find one for my back yard... all the classic monkeybars and climbing structures have been replaced by corporate bland plastic-boring-to-play-on stuff...

Has anyone else ever puzzled over the incongruity between the 4" sphere "baby's head rule" and the totally non-code compliant nature of jungle gyms?

If it is for a client - do not design something - there are HUGE liability issues. Have them purchase the play structure from a reputable manufacturer. Don' forget the necessary clearances around the equipment. Don't forget to specify the proper play surface that corresponds to the demands of the structure - fall heights, etc.

Try Landscape Structures, they rep a company called Gametime. Checkout the Evos Archs systems.

^like what do2 said

A sales rep just dropped off their brochure. Looks neat. Also have gone to some of their works. Try them- Landscape Structures is what they're called.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned RICHTER yet... I thought these guys were widely regarded as the best, the equivalent of Fisher Price at a playground scale... maybe they're only popular in Europe, I don't know...

Hope that helps...

I am working on indoor playground equipment designing for 3 years and I have lots of work to do but the thing is why are people not supporting this industry?
