Inclusive Design

Within the new Big City Plus range we have designed and developed three inclusive units with brand new features and systems that have never been seen before on Playdale equipment. These units

were designed in collaboration with The Bendrigg Trust; a leading charity that provides a wide range

of adventure activities for disabled and disadvantaged people and an organisation that Playdale staff voted to support throughout 2017.

Each unit has a variety of access points, to cater for a wide range of abilities and also to ensure there are ample exit points when needed. The overall flow, design and fully inclusive detail throughout means that users can complete and enjoy the full course of the unit from beginning to end, whilst being as independent as possible. This is made possible with the new transfer platforms to use the slides and additional handles at every turn.

A plastic tube slide on each unit provides light/dark sensory stimulation and aids independence. The bump panels on all the ramp floors give an exciting sensory experience whether in a wheelchair or on foot. There are sensory coloured polycarbonate panels along the side of the ramps, and the

new tactile play panels stimulate touch, feel and sound sensory experiences. The Mexico City and Beijing units offer ‘Parallel Play’ experiences were children of all abilities can play together and ‘race’ across the units using the ramp access net. All the units’ satellite platforms are sized to give space to turn and also to park wheelchairs, so users can comfortably enjoy the many play panels.
