The Dalton is a beautiful set which will really add character to any garden. The playhouse is made entirely of cedar wood and is enclosed on all four sides with openings to the front and rear. The panelled walls give the set a real ‘fort’ feel.  The lower playhouse has 3 windows, 1 to the front and 1 on each side. On the outer side, there is a flowerbox attached to the window sill so keen little gardeners can be encouraged.

The play deck is 120cm from the ground and has an area of approximately 119cm by 90cm. It is covered by an elegant wooden roof which can hold off the rain or shade children from the sun. To reach the play deck, the kids must clamber up the slatted rock wall which comes complete with professional style plastic rocks ideal for climbing. On the play deck, the kids can doodle away to their heart’s content on the vinyl chalk wall before taking the plunge down the 220cm straight, wavy slide. The slide features a small bump to give children a more exciting and fun ride down to the grass. 
The 3 position swing beam includes 2 belt swings and 1 glider. Belt swings have a more flexible seat, so they grip the hips and help children get on and off the swings with ease. 
The Dalton playset is manufactured from cedar wood and pre-stained with an attractive redwood stain. The wood is also pre-cut and pre-drilled which helps make home-build as easy as possible. We also supply an illustrated owner’s manual showing you exactly how to build the set. All you’ll need is basic DIY tools.
This climbing frame is designed for children aged between 3 and 10 years of age and is tested (EN-71 & ASTM) to meet requirements for private residential use – this set is not suitable for commercial use.
The Dalton 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.


2-Child Glider

The glider swing allows two children to ride back-to-back and is compatible with all of our Selwood Products climbing frames. Brilliant news for those with a smaller garden but with more than two children! Naturally, it can also be used by just one child too! Made of yellow and green plastic, the glider complements your climbing frame wonderfully enabling multiple children to play together, and to offer a safe and secure swing to use before children can swing on their own normal swing seat. 

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.  

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!

Absolutely delighted with both the climbing frame and the service received (special mention to Megan). The Dalton is great quality and looks fantastic. It took a day and a half to build but it's fair to say we took our time to make sure everything was perfect. The instructions are excellent but I would recommend marking the part number on each bit of wood prior to build - it will save you a lot of time My girls are delighted and play on it everyday. They especially love inviting friends round to show the climbing frame off! Highly recommended!

Product Review by Martin Lewis United Kingdom on23/07/2014


This is a picture of my youngest daughter who was not feeling well enough to go to nursery, it was strange that her 'illness' coincided with the day daddy finished building the climbing frame :-) Rain or shine the kids are in it every day, whether it be swinging in the sun or playing schools or looking for pirates in the playdeck. This has been the best purchase I've made for my kids. It is great quality and a fantastic feature in our garden. There is a climbing frame to met all budgets, I would definitely recommend climbingframesuk, from their customer service when ordering to the delivery, couldn't fault them.
