Finding the Ideal Spot Before you place your order, make sure to measure the available area in your garden. Look for a nice flat surface, preferably with grass or a pre-laid safety surface. Avoid hard surfaces like stone, concrete, or decking. Also, give some space between the climbing frame and any structure, tree, or wall. Check the size of your chosen frame and modules to ensure your garden has enough room. For safety purposes, leave at least 1.5-2m of free space or a safety area around the tower/modules, 2m in front of the slide, and 3.5m in front and behind the swing top pole.

Building a Solid Base A sturdy foundation is essential for your climbing frame to stand the test of time. Make sure you have a flat and level surface to install it on. This will prevent any leaning or sinking as time goes by. For larger models, be ready to concrete the anchors to secure the frame. Choose an area that allows for this before picking your frame and modules.

Safety Comes First Climbing frames are an amazing addition to any family garden, but always remember to supervise children while they play. If possible, try to position the climbing frame where you can see it from your garden windows. That way, you can keep an eye on your little ones even when you’re not outside with them.

Choosing the Right Location

When it comes to selecting the perfect spot for your climbing frame, finding a flat and level surface is absolutely essential. Avoid the hassle of sinking, tilting, or unevenness while using the climbing frame. Additionally, remember that certain frames may require concrete anchors, so it’s important to ensure that you have the capability to install them. Create a unique and enjoyable play area with these helpful guidelines.

Setting up Space

When choosing a spot for your climbing frame, it’s important to keep in mind the clearance from trees, walls, and other obstacles. Make sure to leave a gap of 1.5m to 3.5m, depending on the frame and module you choose. To ensure safety and maximize play, carefully plan the footprint of your frame, ensuring there is ample space around it. Happy climbing and joyful playtime!

Child’s Play: Keeping Things Safe and Fun!

When your little one is on a climbing frame, their safety is of utmost importance, especially if they’re still finding their footing. It’s vital to consider their attire too. Loose strings or big coat hoods can get caught up in the play equipment, posing risks of injury. Let’s make sure playtime is both safe and enjoyable for your child!
