Risk In Play
Play equipment with an element of risk – an added vital ingredient.
Children want to take risks. It’s a fundamental part of growing up. In fact, an acceptable level of risk is good for them. If children don’t find the thrills they seek in the playground, they’ll look elsewhere. We use our knowledge of children and our experience to developing play equipment that has a carefully balanced element of risk.
Challenging and life enhancing
Every creative act we undertake – whether it’s physical, social or emotional – involves risk. Children learn to assess, appreciate and manage risk through play.
The ability to deal with risk, developed in formative years, determines the extent to which our life will be fulfilled in the future. Our equipment is designed to bw challenging, allowing children to test themselves and feel at ease with risk.
An acceptable level of risk
When children are playing, they take risks, there will always be an occasional bumped head, bruised rib or broken bone. Risk is essential for good creative play. That’s why, while reducing and avoiding risks that cannot be perceived by a child, our designers never lose sight of the essential role risk plays in a child’s development.
A voyage of exploration and discovery
From toddlers to teenagers, for able-bodied and disabled children, our equipment presents varying degrees of challenge, difficulty and risk. In our range you’ll find equipment for climbing, swinging, sliding and spinning, the majority of which is inclusive. We include hideaways and secret places to play. There are high walkways, so children can look down on the world below.
