Balancing & Climbing

children balancing on balancing and climbing playground equipment

So basic, yet so important

Kids often nominate climbing as their favourite activity on a playground

Our range of perennially popular climbing structures support many facets of childhood development, whilst ensuring they have fun and release some energy!

A somersault bar or a stepping pod may not look like much, but when children play on them, they are two of the best contributors to development. Balancing helps train eyesight and the child’s ability to concentrate – two very basic skills that help kids in the classroom. A good sense of balance also helps children be active – skills like kicking a ball or running both draw on the child’s ability to balance properly. Climbing up high gives children a sense of achievement, and develops coordination skills.

Climbing equipment is well suited for a range of commercial environments, whether it be schools, public parks, campgrounds, hotels, the list is endless!

Why Choose Balancing & Climbing Play Equipment?

KOMPAN’s balance and climbing options vary drastically, enabling you to create the perfect playground space for your needs and child ability.

Our range includes natural wooden choices alongside sturdy metal selections, allowing children to get used to a variety of different textures and sensations as they play. Combined with this, the varying appearance options and structures allow playground designers to create varying and engaging spaces which immediately encourage children to use them.

Together with the physical attributes, KOMPAN’s balancing playground equipment for toddlers and children uses intelligent, research-driven design to ensure it offers the best development opportunities possible. Climbing during play offers children a brilliant opportunity to practise their gross motor skills and develop a passion for motion. It’s these habits built at an early age that can help build a healthy lifestyle in the future.

Furthermore, balancing equipment for toddlers often encourages or involves an element of group play, whether it be through friendly races and competition or cooperative activities. The unrestricted social interaction that occurs during this group play is unique to the playground environment and absolutely invaluable to communicative child development. Seeing the non-physical benefits of play sits at the core of what we do at KOMPAN, which is why our playground equipment is specifically designed with this in mind.
