Climbing Frames UK demand quality
We are meticulous when it comes to sourcing our outdoor toys because we know that in addition to having good play features for their children customers expect a wooden climbing frame or swing or playhouse to be robust, safe and ideally straightforward to construct.
Sourcing of products, wood, plastic, metal and vinyl
We want to supply our customers with the best quality and the best value so don't select our climbing frames, swing sets and play centres from image galleries; our buyers travel the world and visit manufacturers and factories. When we see a factory, we meet the workforce and the management to ensure they meet our standards. We also we have our suppliers' factories audited to check the organisation, facilities, operational procedures, labour force, working conditions, and production processes meet the required standards and regulations.
Testing Procedures & Standards
In addition to sourcing and manufacturing the best value garden play systems, we are also at the forefront of innovation for safety. Our designers and manufacturers strive to achieve the next step forward in design and construction that provides strength and rigidity whilst making the sets aesthetically pleasing and minimising the use of unnecessary materials. Please use the following link to view more information about our testing procedures.
Climbing Frames also stipulate that our products are manufactured to meet all the major worldwide safety standards and are often tested either in-house or by the Bureau Veritas to verify this. We test not only the complete products, but also test individual components to ensure the plastic, vinyl, metal and wooden components all meet and often exceed hardness, compression, tensile, UV and moisture testing standards. In addition to this we test our competitor's sets to ensure our products are always comparable or better quality. Please use the following link to view more information about our product testing.
The tests we use cover all component parts used in our sets including wood, metal, rope and vinyl. Some of the tests and equipment used are shown below.
