KOMPAN's climbing domes, especially those with more innovative designs, can stand out and act as playground centrepieces in your community or school. They offer endless fun with various ways to play, climb and crawl. Here are some segments where outdoor climbing domes are perfect play elements:

1. Public parks and recreational areas 

The Dome Playground equipment is an eye-catching addition to any public park or recreational area. Children of all ages and abilities enjoy climbing, making this playground piece de resistance a surefire way to generate lots of excitement and activity in your community. Not only are these play structures perfect for public parks, but they are also commercial-grade, making them ideal for adventure parks and outdoor activity centers. The commercial climbing domes look great and inspire children to engage in more outdoor play, ensuring repeat visits.

2. Schools 

Our climbing domes are a perfect addition to schools and educational institutions that want to create a great and clever playground. You see, climbing can essentially make children clever. Novel movement patterns benefit the brain and thus connect body and mind.

Especially tween girls love to climb, and research suggests that climbing activates tween girls on playgrounds; you can read more about the research in our white paper from the KOMPAN Play Institute here

3. Residential areas 

Our outdoor climbing domes are commercial versions of the popular at-home playground climbing domes. The KOMPAN commercial climbing domes and spheres make excellent playground structures for residential communities. Children can gather, climb, and hang out while having fun and challenging themselves by exploring the rope nets. If you're searching for other great rope climbing play equipment, we can help, our climbing pyramids or climbing net playground equipment offers many of the same benefits and challenges as playground domes.  

Benefits of Dome Climbing Equipment

Climbing domes designed for children have numerous mental and physical benefits. Additionally, they can increase the value of a residential area and boost the appeal of nearby parks and recreational spaces in the community.

Provides a stimulating physical and mental challenge 

Engaging in dome climbing activities can provide physical challenges that enhance children's cross-coordination abilities. This type of activity promotes cooperation between the two halves of the brain, which can aid in the development of reading skills for young children. In addition to improving motor skills, climbing and crawling may also contribute to cognitive development.

Teaches kids risk management  

A playground with a secure dome climbing structure can aid in boosting children's confidence as they learn to handle risks and develop their abilities, resulting in a sense of accomplishment. You can see all our rope playground equipment and its benefits here. 

How to Choose the Right Playground Climbing Dome 

Playground climbing domes are highly effective at captivating the interest of curious and inquisitive children. When selecting playground equipment, it is crucial to carefully consider the equipment's design and age recommendations. Additionally, factors such as the size of your playground area, play capacity, and safety standards should be taken into account. Our team of playground experts is available to assist you in making the best decision for your play area and community.

Commercial-grade equipment - A clever investment 

If you're looking to include multiple play activities in a single climbing structure, commercial-grade playgrounds can be costly. However, it's worth investing in durable playground equipment for the long-term balance of cost and quality. This is especially important for institutions or schools where longevity and durability are crucial. Often financial help and funding opportunities are available. Applying for funding and grants can seem like a mountain to climb but we are here to help. Learn more about funding and grants here.

Looks great - but will children use the equipment? 

The playground domes look fantastic, but it's important to consider if children will actually use the play equipment. To ensure that the playground equipment is utilized, it's crucial to understand the purpose and target audience of your playground site. Our team of playground experts can offer guidance to help you choose age-appropriate playground equipment. Our goal is to maximize your investment by ensuring that children enjoy returning to the playground time and time again, making the project's value evident one smile at a time.

What is the safest playground equipment?

All of our playground equipment complies with all UK safety standards. But it is still vitally important to choose age-appropriate equipment. All of our products are tested by children to make sure they are safe and enjoyable products for the right age groups.

What is the difference between commercial and residential playground equipment?

Commercial playground equipment is usually more exciting and more complex. It is designed to accommodate a large volume of children simultaneously whilst offering a broader range of play activities. Residential playgrounds, on the other hand, are typically smaller and simpler in design, suitable for a family or a small group of children.

Why are commercial playgrounds so expensive?

Commercial playground equipment is designed to withstand heavy use and harsh weather conditions. It must be built with durable materials such as high-grade steel, strong plastics, and weather-resistant coatings. These materials come at a higher cost than those used in residential playgrounds, ensuring that the equipment can endure frequent use and last for a long time.

What is the life expectancy of commercial playground equipment?

All playgrounds face the trials of weather, use and abuse and will eventually succumb to the ravages of time. Postpone that day for a lifetime by choosing playground equipment of high-quality materials and the cleverest of designs. Quality costs, but quality also lasts. A simple equation that, in the fullness of time, pays dividends. You can read more about our high-quality materials here and warranties here.

What equipment is not recommended for public playgrounds?
