Quality Materials

Choose us for Play Equipment that lasts

It’s simple. Poor-quality timber rots and we have learnt a lot about it over the years.

With decades of experience within Outdoor Play People, we have learnt which materials last & give value for money and which don’t.

This is why for our raw materials & components we ONLY collaborate with highly experienced & trusted suppliers and you get play equipment that truly goes the distance!

All our play equipment conforms to European-wide safety standard EN 1176 & surfacing to BSEN 1177.

Quality Playground Materials

We love trees (and we’re picky!)

Our timber comes from FSC managed forests.

We strongly believe in protecting our forests & their inhabitants & so does the Forestry Stewardship Council.

We are very fussy and only use exclusively selected Scandinavian redwood. The timber is sorted through a minimum of three times.

Our timber is treated with a Gold award winning, 30-year service treatment.

The timber is dried to ensure the timber can correctly absorb the treatment.

Our timber is pressure treated with market-leading next generation wood preservative. Each timber is in the treatment vessel for an extended period.

To ensure you always get consistent quality, all treatments are carried out using the latest auto-treater plant control & management technology.


Our coloured panels are all made using HDPE. (High Density PolyEthelane).
