Customer case

"It's been 5 years since we built the playground, and it has been hugely positive..."

This primary school in Scotland transformed its once-dubbed "concrete jungle" school oval into a vibrant and welcoming space that has significantly enhanced the well-being of its students and boosted attendance rates.

"I would definitely suggest to anybody who is the head teacher of a school to do the same thing and to provide more equipment for children to play with, it has a huge impact on attendance, behaviour, confidence, friendship"

- Gayle MacDonald, Head Teacher at Corpus Christi Primary School, Glasgow, Scotland

Playgrounds designed using research and student input

Children are fun experts, and we're experts in how play fosters development. By combining our knowledge, we create enduring, skill-enhancing school playgrounds.

Our doctoral research, work at the KOMPAN Play Institute, KOMPAN Fitness Institute, and collaborations with the World Playground Research Institute include children in testing, ensuring playgrounds support development and active, skillful growth.

Improve learning and attentiveness with a good school playground

Children's classroom learning is deeply intertwined with play and activity. It's through play that they embark on journeys of exploration, self-discovery, and personal growth, gaining insights into the world around them and honing their physical, emotional, and cognitive abilities.

Having an appropriate school oval playground plays a pivotal role in a child's capacity to learn and flourish academically. Whether it's climbing structures like our playground climbing nets that enhance logical thinking and spatial awareness or spinning activities that improve balance, these experiences directly contribute to the development of skills essential for students' education and well-rounded growth.

Children love our play equipment

You can rest assured that your playground will consistently draw children back every day. Prior to introducing our playground equipment to the market, we embark on a final phase of play testing with children. For instance, we enlisted the input of 37 delightful children aged 6 to 11 to provide feedback and their invaluable seal of approval for our GIANTS play range.
