Inclusive Playground Equipment

Wicksteed Playscapes will be presenting new playground equipment, especially designed to allow children to play with a purpose.

Many of the firm’s latest products are designed to be visually as well as physically stimulating. The Monsta Modular Play System is designed with teenagers in mind and contains an exciting array of ladders and sculptural elements.

The Matrix is a system which looks like a futuristic pylon, with large slides coming out of it.
Wicksteed has two new roundabouts. The Triple Spinner has two spinners rotating separately whilst the main roundabout is circling. The Kick About Spinner is propelled by children’s legpower, and is great for strengthening leg muscles.

To meet the recent disability rights legislation, playground equipment manufacturers are bringing out new products that allow disabled children to participate.

GL Jones Playgrounds has introduced an improved D009 AbilityWhirl – a roundabout, which can accommodate two wheelchairs. The redesigned grab rails, means that the wheelchair users now have more room – and a more comfortable ride.

The firm will also be displaying the Ability Swing, which features a unique locking system, to prevent unauthorised use.

Inclusive Play (UK) Ltd offers equipment which has been developed in partnership with children’s charities. Among their range is the Moonwalker – a soft spinning dish on which children can lie or walk – and the Exosphere which is designed to engage children through dynamic movement and problem solving.

Star Rubber will be showing a wide range of quality play surfaces, designed to be visually attractive and to meet the highest health and safety standards.
