Why choose Sutcliffe Play?
“Experts” in Play
Whilst children themselves are the experts in playing, our customers tell us we are the experts in play and play spaces. Our company vision is to be “the global experts in play”. Knowledge is what others say sets us apart – knowledge of children, engagement, design, risk, challenge, inclusion and accessibility.
Our range is the most extensive in the UK. We offer steel, timber and natural play equipment such as water and sand play. We span the age ranges from toddlers, to teenagers to adults. We provide traditional playground equipment such as swings, slides, roundabouts, seesaws, and more unusual items such as trampolines, zip wires, trim trails and net climbers. We specialise in inclusive play equipment. Sutcliffe Play also manufactures youth shelters, ballcourts or muga’s (multi-use games areas), and furniture such as benches and bins.
Flexibility and bespoke design
No project is simple and what we can offer is the flexibility and in-house design capabilities to solve numerous problems – Roman remains, strange funghi or bats on site, contaminated land, waterlogging, space only on a car park roof… We have come across all of these and come up with innovative solutions. Having our own factory and designers means we can work around all such issues.
Full range of services
We research and consult, design playspaces, design and manufacture play equipment, and refurbish tired play areas. Our Contracts department can take care of installation and landscaping, providing on site project management as required. Finally we provide after sales service in the form of inspection and maintenance packages, technical support and advice and swift supply of spares.
Free play area design
We have a team of play area designers, led by a qualified landscape architect.Following a site visit and survey, we will provide your Architects or Quantity Surveyors with comprehensive proposals, designs and costings for a whole landscaped playspace.
