PLAYGEAR by Otago Engineering

Wilder rider, our circular monorail.When PlayGear first opened its doors, playgrounds were a patch of grass with a set of swings, a slide and a see-saw. Now, 60 years on they are a place of fun and adventure, providing opportunity to test children's skills, build confidence and develop motor skills and coordination.

Our playground equipment is robust using long-lasting materials such as powder-coated galvanised steel and rotationally moulded plastics. What we make, we make to last. Our clients include many schools and local authorities who recognise the need for strong, durable and safe play equipment.

Junior and Senior Adventure Playgrounds

PLAYGEAR adventure playgrounds can be designed to suit your budget and space requirements. We offer a range of platforms which can be raised to a variety of heights and be used to support a range of slides and chutes. They can be accessed by our exciting range of climbing equipment, which varies from a basic ladder to our crazy Corkscrew Climber. We also manufacture and install Fitness/Commando course's and also popular is our custom made a traditional flying fox where children have endless amounts of fun gliding along the high strength cable, while comfortably sitting on a pommel set.....suitable for all ages.

Early Childhood Gear

Playgear Early Childhood range, includes an exciting selection of slides, swing bridges, climbing equipment, tunnels, bars and flying foxes. The emphasis is on easy access but with enough challenges to develop confidence and coordination.


Our early childhood swings have proved popular with both pre-school centres and home users all over the country. We also have a wide range of Junior and Senior swings to choose from. These swing frames can be fitted with a range of swing seats, from durable belt seat to our special soft cellular foam seat.

Playground Slides

Slides in playgrounds have always been a source of excitement for children of all ages. We have an excellent range of top quality slides in all sorts of styles and configurations. We use top quality materials including stainless steel, fibreglass and polypropylene.

Basketball Equipment and Netball Goals

Be it basketball, soccer or rugby, our experience in building play gear has translated well into building tough sports gear for New Zealand school and council playgrounds and gymnasiums. We use a combination of durable materials including galvanised steel and top quality netting.

Rugby Goals and Soccer Goals

Our latest project

A Magnificent Fibreglass Tunnel Slide, custom made specifically for a Local Dunedin School.

This Playgear™ Fibreglass Tunnel Slide was manufactured to suit a playground area at local Dunedin School and took months to design and create.

Once the gradient and the lay of the land was established, the slide was carefully designed to suit the site. It was built in individual pieces and then assembled in the workshop creating a magnificent Tunnel Slide.

Our Fibreglass Tunnel Slides are designed and built with safety in mind. Constructed from resin bonded fibreglass, our fibreglass slides have galvanised fixed brackets at the top and bottom, moulded into the slide. The benefits of a fibreglass slide is its versatility, durability and considerable life expectancy because of its non-corrosive properties. Fibreglass withstands our harsh environment and is resistance to salty water and most chemicals. It has an ultra violet light inhibitor in it, its antistatic as well as having a fire retardant in the fibreglass.

The sliding chute on this slide is continuous, there are no joins or screws on the part you are sliding on, the fixing brackets are moulded into the underbody of the slide.

See our range of fibreglass, plastic and stainless steel slides. Colour range available.
