Bespoke multi-play unit is a focal point for re-vamped play area

Our distributor in the South West was was tasked with designing and installing a large central multi-play structure to compliment and existing play area on site. After many months of discussion and design proposals a large new bespoke multi-play structure was designed to become the focal point of the playground.

The new structure needed to complement the existing equipment on the playground and provide a wide range of play opportunities. It had to be impressive enough to sit next to a large multi-use games area and an outdoor fitness area.

To have the desired effect the Sutcliffe Play design team created their biggest bespoke new play structure to date.

As part of the company’s Playzone range, Goliath, is packed with play opportunities that will keep children of all ages engaged for many years to come. The unit boasts an impressive 37 play value elements and stands at an impressive 5.27m high, it has a wide range of activities and linking bridges extending around a Y shaped structure. There are three slides, climbing walls, scramble nets, rope bridges, rope climbs, fireman poles, a ring crawler, bridges, a lookout tower, pull up wall and much more!

The unit has been designed with fun and excitement at the core whilst providing physical, social, imaginative and creative play options to keep children coming back for more.

Goliath is complemented by other Sutcliffe Play equipment installed at the playground – an Inclusive Dish Roundabout, Pirate Rocker and Cobra Swing. The Cobra Swing is one of the latest additions to the swing range and is proving very popular as a challenging multi-user swing where up to 6 children of varied ages and abilities can all swing together. It requires teamwork and balance to get the rope seat moving. Using a combination of balancing, swinging and rocking movements this multi-user swing encourages social cooperation and locomotor play.   It can be enjoyed by a wide age group range and is suitable for adults to help smaller children.

“The Sutcliffe Play design team really did deliver against the brief. We’re delighted with the new multi play unit. Since the playground reopened it’s been the most popular piece of equipment.” Steve Altria, Creech St Michael Town Clerk

Playground Equipment:

Goliath

Goliath is the largest Playzone unit in our range. Standing at an overall height of 5.27m, this multi-play unit features a large ‘rotunda’ of platform steps rising to a height of 3m. At various points and at different heights,  activities and linking bridges extend the system branching off to create a ‘Y’ shaped unit.

The rotunda section offers a range of challenging entrances including vertical rungs, ropes climbs and a snaking triple traversing climbing wall combination. A curved stainless steel tube chute at 3.3m, a straight chute at 2.5m and a Firemen’s pole offer an exhilarating choice for speeding back to ground level.

An ‘S’ curved Hoop Bridge combination leads users to a choice of direction. The 3m long Suspension Bridge arrives at a Pull Up Ramp, Pole Climb and a Firemen’s Pole. Then a Vertical Climbing Net leads up to a square roofed tower with a 1.8m Rope Climb and stainless steel chute.

Take the alternative route via a Rope Bridge and the user passes a Scramble net, ladders and another Firemen’s Pole. The height starts to increase as an Arch Bridge and two steep platform steps rise up to 3m to a fully enclosed ‘tree house’ tower with additional curved seating. Another full height tube chute offers a final descent to ground level.

 Inclusive Dish Roundabout

Our rotating dish roundabout is one of our most inclusive products, it can be used for very fast dynamic play. The rocking and rotating motion with good body support and security given by the dish shape, make our dishes accessible to all. The angle of the dish and it’s height make side transfer possible and minimise the lifting required by helpers. It is suitable for the most demanding location as well as natural play spaces.

Pirate Rocker

An inclusive themed rocker, The Pirate Ship is designed to complement other coastal & seaside themed products in the range. It offers seating for four children and the seats are arranged to be facing, making play a more social and interactive process. With a high sided stern, bow and seat backs children have a degree of enclosure to enhance fantasy & imaginative games.

The Pirate ship has a number of key features for children to use, including four cannons, skull & cross bones, poop deck and anchor motifs.

Cobra Swing

The Cobra Swing is one of the latest additions to the swing range and is proving very popular as a challenging multi-user swing where up to 6 children of varied ages and abilities can all swing together. It requires teamwork and balance to get the rope seat moving. Using a combination of balancing, swinging and rocking movements this multi-user swing encourages social cooperation and locomotor play.   It can be enjoyed by a wide age group range and is suitable for adults to help smaller children.
