A broad range of playground classics
KOMPAN’s Play Systems cover a very broad spectrum that’s even wider than can portrayed here. That’s because each of the systems is entirely flexible, open to personal choice and adaptation. Several, like the Giants, Castles and Ships can help develop an established connection with an area or be like the Story Makers in telling a precise tale. KOMPAN products don’t stop developing once they reach the brochures, they constantly develop to maximize any needs and value.
Are there any limits to size and heights?
When asked what marked the boundary in terms of size, the leading manufacturer KOMPAN answered with one word, ‘safety’. Their new Giants range takes the thrill of the climb up to that of a three-story building, but even nine meters up the children are protected by see-through panels and floors are split so that any tumbles are short ones. Slides that start that high up begin the downward journey as twisting tunnels.
Why is colour so important in a playground?
Colour is a silent language. It speaks to us all telling us of dangers, of delights. A baby doesn’t recognize colour until it is about eight months old, from then on it plays a vital role in their development. They are drawn to the bright primary colours. KOMPAN founder, artist Tom Lindhardt, used yellow, blue, red extensively in his early works, shunning green since he believed that it was already there in the grass around the playground.
How important is play in a child’s development?
Of all the questions surrounding the values and attributes of playgrounds, none is more pertinent than what they do for a child’s development. Leading manufacturer KOMPAN established an in-house study group in the 1980’s, the KOMPAN Play Institute, to look at how to get the most out of the play experience in terms of social and physical development. Play may seem an innocent pastime, but it is vital for building communication and motor skills, teaching children to share and strive for achievement. Any playground that doesn’t fully consider what children of all ages and abilities can gain, is a wasted opportunity in life.

Why is colour so important in a playground?
The use of colour is a silent language. It can alert us to potential hazards or bring us joy. Infants typically begin to distinguish between colours at around eight months old, and from that point on, colours become a significant factor in their growth. Bright primary colours are especially attractive to children. The founder of KOMPAN, Tom Lindhardt, who is also an artist, incorporated yellow, blue, and red in his early works, deliberately avoiding green as he felt it was already present in the surrounding playground grass.
