The playground environments our children play in should be safe and should care for the environment.  

Presently our playgrounds are filled with products that shouldn't be in contact with people and especially not children.  Used tyres and other recycled rubber products have good recyclable credentials however release toxic chemicals that can be harmful to children and the environment.  

Artifical turf, rubber surfacing does not have a long life or circular lifecycle and fills our landfill at the end of life.

To respond to this situation, our intent is to offer products that have a long life, are healthy for children to interact with and have a circular life cycle.   

The Climbing Forest, created by Richter Speilgerate, is a natural play wonderland that embodies values of safety, stability, environmental friendliness, play value and use of sustainability forested wood.

 

Play value

Thanks to its various degrees of difficulty at different heights, the Climbing Forest is a thrilling challenge for children and adults who love to exercise and enjoy testing their strength and capabilities. As the trunks and ropes provide enough space to accommodate large numbers of adventurers at the same time, the Climbing Forest is well suited for heavily frequented playgrounds. 

Climbing together, moving hand over hand and balancing require skill and prudence. Children improve their motor skills and their ability to assess risks in a playful manner. Encounters on a rocking rope mean that you have to coordinate what you do with the other person. Having overcome a seemingly impossible obstacle strengthens the children’s self-esteem – the proud expression on their faces when they reach the top of the Climbing Forest speaks for itself. The younger and older climbers joyfully experience how concentration and stamina help accomplish great goals.
