When we talk about “quality”, we don’t just see a single aspect. Quality really is a guiding principle of everything Playdale takes part in. Playdale has over 40 years of experience in the design, manufacturing, and installation of everything from traditional climbing frames to modern sensory playground areas. Providing quality products is at the core of our values.
At Playdale Playground we only use high-quality materials, such as stainless steel, galvanized steel, and FSC-certified timber, to manufacture our playground equipment. This ensures that our products are durable and can withstand heavy usage and adverse weather conditions. Our towers are built to last! The high quality of all our materials is continually monitored through our ISO 9001 certified Quality Assurance Procedures to ensure all the specifications are met and are of a consistent quality.
The laminated timber vastly reduces the natural effect of fiber separation which could cause splits in the poles, therefore, giving high-strength, highly engineered timber poles.
All the high-quality, round timber poles on Playdale equipment are produced from extremely slow-grown pine from totally sustainable, managed forests. These forests are also FSC or PEFC accredited. The laminated timber vastly reduces the natural effect of fiber separation which could cause splits in the poles, therefore, giving high-strength, highly engineered timber poles.
