Wooden Pirate Ship Playground Sets

Ahoy, all daredevils and pirates, beware! If sea monsters and pirates have taken over your play area, it's time to rally everyone on board and set sail. KOMPAN's pirate ship playgrounds offer endless hours of thrilling and imaginative activities that will keep children engaged and exploring. The idea of danger adds an exciting element to their adventures, as pirates fall into the same story-generating arena of mythical creatures like ogres, dragons, and ghosts. Just like two pirate captains, no two wooden pirate ship play structures are the same. Each has its unique character and features, thanks to the authentic feel of Robinia wood. These playground sets are full of opportunities to hide, climb, and role-play, helping shape young buccaneers' character, communication skills, and physical development. These voyages of self-discovery offer more than just playtime - they're a journey of growth and exploration.

The pirate ship play structures come in six standard designs, but each one can be customized with unique Robinia wood grain patterns. These structures are available in three different sizes, all of which are expansive and dominate any playground. The placement of slides, ropes, and the pirate ship itself contribute to the allure of a swashbuckling adventure that is simply irresistible. The Robinia tree is a remarkable natural wonder. It thrives in poor soil, promotes nitrogen production in the soil, produces Acadia honey, and even helps reduce CO2 levels through its leaves. It adapts well in urban areas and is often planted along streets and boulevards. Robinia timber is a highly sustainable and durable material for play features. Moreover, each unique piece of Robinia wood dictates how it can be used, adding a degree of individuality to each commercial pirate ship playground.

Frequently asked questions about Robinia Ships

Are pirate ship playgrounds just for boys?

No. Girls can enjoy the adventure just as much as boys. In fact, there were many female pirates, such as Anne Bonny, Mary Read, and Rachel Wall, who are often overlooked. Female pirates also existed in Sweden, China, and France. Playing these characters can help with character development and allow for breaking down of conceptual barriers in the imaginative world. Who wouldn't want to pretend to be Keira Knightley or Johnny Depp?

Are the playground ships painted?

Yes and no. The wood can be treated or untreated, the former giving it initially a darker hue, the latter aging gracefully with time. The wood can also be painted, with features in blue and red and sides in black.

What type of rope is used in the pirate ship playgrounds?

 KOMPAN uses a special ‘Hercules’-type of rope with galvanized six-stranded steel wires. Each strand is tightly wrapped with PES yarn, which is melted onto each individual strand. The ropes are highly wear-and vandalism-resistant and can be replaced at site if needed.
