Product Features

The Carrick Fort climbing frame is part of our Olympia Series. This is one of our space saver sets which gives a compact layout for those with limited space and supplied without swings or monkey bars. This set includes the Olympia play fort with a beautiful wooden roof made from cedar wood, a curved wavy slide (made from HDPE) and a combination rock wall 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 Carrick Fort climbing frame features a beautiful wooden roof to blend in with your garden which covers the play deck that’s enclosed by the slatted wall rails. This set features 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 front of the fort 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 an enclosed wooden playhouse below. The playhouse features a café style serving hatch at the front of the fort with two stools and is accessible via a doorway to the rear.

With the addition of a membrane you can also 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.

The curved slide on the Carrick Fort is high railed, especially at the top to ensure 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 7 slats to enable younger children to climb the ladder and 5 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 Carrick 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 Carrick Fort includes the following product features:

Curved Slide

Curved slides look great and have a slightly longer ride from the climbing frames. The curved slide is an ideal option for those with a shorter garden as the slide starts from the side of the frame and finishes at the front. Our slides have extra high side rails to help children get onto the slide. 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! This 90 degree curved slide is exclusive to our Selwood Products sets too. 

Made from a strong plastic in a single mould to ensure maximum strength of the product. It's UV resistant so shouldn't fade in the sunlight. 

 


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.

 


Wooden Roof

Climbing frames with fully wooden roofs look amazing in your garden and provide your with a strong sturdy playset that will protect them from sunshine or rain.

Our playsets come with either a vinyl tarp roof, or a fully wooden roof.  


Café Counter

The café counter is an open serving hatch situated underneath the play deck. Why would I buy a climbing frame with a cafe counter?

The cafe counter a great way to broaden your child’s imagination. It adds a whole new element to your playset and once they are worn out swinging and sliding they may want to play shops or restaurants. Anyone with children knows that they jump from one game to another and one toy to another, so the cafe counter enables them to incorporate creative and imaginative play into their playset.

Counters are all good, you can choose between plastic and wooden seating, and some counters will have a rotating chalk wall for use inside and out.


Playhouse Package

Climbing Frames UK has a huge range of playsets and wooden climbing frames with fully incorporated wooden playhouse packages. The playhouse is situated directly below the fort play deck, and includes a door, two playhouse windows and a serving wall with two stools.


Chalk Wall

Drawing is the perfect way to encourage a child's creativity, and what better way than have a vinyl chalk wall on your playset from Climbing Frames UK! And with such a wonderful view as that from the top of the playhouse, who wouldn't want to draw it? The vinyl chalk wall is easy to wipe clean, so your little Monets and Rembrandts can keep their creative juices flowing!

My daughter absolutely loves her fort and slide. Great product and good service, although a little time consuming to put together. Would definitely recommend.

Well made, compact footprint so perfect for a small corner of our garden but a nightmare to put up with the cross referenciung of instructions! Well worth the hassle though. The children love it.

Vous avez raison vraiment digne d'un chateau fort!

Mais cela ne leur suffit pas, j'ai donc du rajouté un trampoline parce que le fort n'a pas beaucoup d'accessoires
