This eight platform playground consists of many challenging activities designed to build confidence and develop upper body strength. Included in the playground area, is our ever popular Playgear Fusion 25 swing, which incorporates 2 rubber belt seats and a frisbee seat, encouraging group play and fun for all ages.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> When designing the playground, customer input is very important to us particulary from the point of view, of delivering a product that is exactly what our client has in mind.This playground is very close to the sea so one of the main points considered was how this playground would need to stand up to the harsh marine environment. To combat this, all steel work has been hot dipped galvanised and stainless steel chain and galvanised fixings have been used to minimise corosion.<br /> <br /> We use higher grade powder coating on all of our products so we can be assured the finish will be super durable and the colours will stay brighter for longer.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;The finished playground looks fantastic. What we make, we make to last!<br /> &nbsp;1654084800http://www.playgear.co.nz/news/63/New-playground-for-a-school-on-the-Chatham-Islandshttp://www.playgear.co.nz735New playground for a school on the Chatham Islands.http://www.playgear.co.nz/news/63/New-playground-for-a-school-on-the-Chatham-Islands Softfall matting installed including a hopscotchhttp://www.playgear.co.nz/news/62/Softfall-matting-installed-including-a-hopscotchNew softfall surface installed at an early childhood centre using Play Matta&trade;original tiles and shock pad, mid green and light blue, supplied and installed by Otago Engineering. The existing matting which had deteriorated has been lifted and replaced with brand new safety softfall surface.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Play Matta&trade;original, softfall surface is a low maintenance, long term investment. The initial outlay of softfall matting, outways the ongoing costs of ensuring the loosefill is maintained to a sufficient depth to meet the NZ playground equipment and surfacting regulations. Using a system that lasts longer makes sense.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> &nbsp;1653998400http://www.playgear.co.nz/news/62/Softfall-matting-installed-including-a-hopscotchhttp://www.playgear.co.nz729Softfall matting installed including a hopscotchhttp://www.playgear.co.nz/news/62/Softfall-matting-installed-including-a-hopscotch Rainbow tower where kids can ride their bikes through the tunnel underneathhttp://www.playgear.co.nz/news/61/Rainbow-tower-where-kids-can-ride-their-bikes-through-the-tunnel-underneathRecently installed playground area designed for a local Te Kohanga Reo.
