Product Features

The Balmoral Fort climbing frame is a climbing frame ideal for small gardens. This set includes the Balmoral play fort with a UV resistant vinyl roof with sunburst, wave slide and a combination rockwall ladder. Manufactured from cedar wood and pre-stained with a factory applied water based redwood colour stain, this playset will be a fantastic addition to any garden.

The Balmoral Fort Climbing Frame features a stylish vinyl roof with an attractive yellow sunburst which covers the 120cm x 90xcm play deck that’s enclosed by the slatted wall rails. The Selwood Range of Climbing Frames feature a high number of wall rails to prevent arms from being put through the bars and create a fantastic cabin feel. This is enhanced by the very popular window to the fort's front which is a hit with many children who love standing in their high tower waving down to mum and dad in the garden below.

The play deck is 1.2m (4ft) from the ground so is high enough to give a challenging climb up and fun slide down but not too high to scare younger children.  The fort consists of 4x2 upright beams supporting the upper playhouse.  The deck measures 118.7cm (46¾") wide from left to right by 89.53cm (35¼") deep from front to back. This equates to over 1m/sq of raised play area with a sand play area below. With the addition of a membrane you can fill the area with sand and use it as a sandpit. The ground beams which act as the surround for this area are 12cm (5") high. Should you wish it could alternatively be used as a ball pit or you could add our optional stand-alone picnic table accessory.

The Climbing Frame's slide is high railed, especially at the top ensuring children can get onto the slide easily and safely and that they are retained as they enjoy the ride. The slide features a wave in the middle to give some additional excitement, and the bottom of the slide flattens to enable a slower exit to ensure children can place their feet down safely.

The combination rockwall ladder contains seven slats to enable younger children to climb the ladder and five high quality climbing rocks to provide older children a more challenging assent up to the treehouse deck. Once on the deck they can come back down the slide, play on the large deck area or draw on the ABC vinyl wipe clean chalk wall.

Our Climbing Frames are all free standing and cementing them into the ground is unnecessary, but to provide added stability, the Balmoral Fort comes with a set of ground stakes, which fix it to the ground. 

This playset is designed for children aged between 3 and 10 years of age (inclusive) who individually weigh no more than 50kg (110lbs). The set is designed and tested (EN-71 & ASTM) to meet requirements for private residential use – this set is not suitable for commercial use.

The Balmoral Fort includes the following product features;

Straight Slide

Straight slide with an added wave gives thrilling descents from climbing frames! Our slides have extra high rails at the top of slide to help children get onto the slide and help prevent any falls. The bottom of the slide is flatter, to help children end with their feet (and not their bottoms!) on the ground. No more bumps and bruises and no more grass stains! The slides are made of durable, green plastic - a perfect colour choice during the summer as it won't attract the bugs! We have also reinforced the rear of our slides to make them extra strong, and to easily stand up to children running the wrong way up them!

Rockwall Ladder

This slatted rock wall ladder offers the best of both worlds for little climbers. For those who are feeling a little more adventurous, the moulded plastic climbing rocks are a natural choice for a daring climb. For those with a little less confidence, then the spaces between the ladder slats will provide an easier ascent to the top! The spaces between the slats are also easy to climb down - ideal if the queue for the slide is too long! Our rock wall ladders are a combination to ensure that all ages of children can enjoy them and maximise their use from the play set. 

1.2m (4ft) High Deck

The 1.22m (4ft) play deck height refers to the distance from the ground to the climbing frames deck. Therefore the higher the deck height the further from the ground the deck is, the longer the rock wall  to get up, and the slide to ride down. The higher the deck means you have further to climb and slide. This obviously makes climbing up more of a challenge and sliding down generates more speed.  We have found that four foot decks are the most popular in type, according to customers it's accessible to younger children and still a challenge older kids until they are likely to be just want to go out all the time. Sorry parents climbing frames cant keep them as kids forever.  

Which deck height is most suitable for my children?

We suggest that the taller or older your children are the higher your deck should be, and it is also important to remember that the higher the deck the more use your children will get out of the climbing frame as they get older.

The 4ft deck is our most popular deck height as it is a fantastic compromise between being a sensible height for smaller or younger children, and still high enough to keep older children amused.


Vinyl Roof

The tarp is also water-resistant so the kids can take cover during scattered showers! 

Sandpit Area

We spent ages looking for the perfect play equipment for our garden. We live in a rural village and didn't want the frame to dominate the garden or view. We found the perfect play house and slide for the kids, they always use it to picnic in - rain or shine! It's loved by all who visit the garden, it has even been slept in while we did star gazing live. Its also used as a 'time out/cool off' place;-). I treat the wood every year and its in great condition. Our garden wouldn't be the same without it and its got years and years of use left. Thank you Climbing Frames UK. The Robinson family

Product Review by J Wilson United Kingdom on14/08/2015


Ahhhh, our beloved castle! My 2 boys love their 'Castle' and treat it as somewhere to dictate their orders to, as a cinema where they can watch Frozen as many times as they want without making us tear our ears off, and they regularly pedal their wares from the 'shop window', such as potatoes, bolts and pants. Recently they started up a 'cake business' from the sandpit beneath selling such treats as 'castle cake' and 'dino pudding'. It has also been adapted into 'mega ultra splash land', by adding an 'olympic sized' paddling pool at the bottom of the slide. So far, the castle has survived a 100mph hurricane, 8 feet snow drifts and a pretty big tantrum involving a 4 year old and a massive stick. So this shows, that the 'castle' has been one of the most important and best quality fixtures in the garden we have ever bought!
