The Big Top

'The freestanding sun sail to shade the play area of the upper platform on the Big Top is optional. Besides from providing shadow to the play area, the sail also adds to the carousel look of the play structure ...'

The Big Top - LARGE

Like a carousel

The Big Top gives the impression of a carousel, designed with activities suited for younger children. The upper platform is 1.8m high, and is easy-accessible via a ramp, to go up and to go down. However, there are two extra fun ways to go from the upper platform and down to the ground level - the curly climber and the open plastic slide. Underneath there are a bunch of activities, like the small membrane flower basket seats, rocking horses made from HDPE, alongside liana ropes, suspended EPDM balls, optic panels, toddler hammocks, swing seats and a junior spica spinner

Turning themes, ideas and stories into playgrounds

KOMPAN Design Studio

For more than a decade, we have built tailor-made and highly unique playgrounds that WOW children and adults to come and play. Our playgrounds can come in a range of themes and can be localised and thematised to your local area and community, or to fit a specific environment. No matter the theme all our units are packed full of play value. The play structures are made of highly durable and vandalism-resistant materials that make them last for decades to come. Also, they are safe and certifiable like all products we have built over the past 50 years.

Loaded with play activities

Easy access

The sturdy coromesh ramp is a fast track to the top. The transparency makes the child aware of the height, which is a physically thrilling element.

Coming down

Sliding stimulates children’s trunk stability and their sense of balance and space. These are important motor skills, fundamental for physical confidence.

Chilling with friends

The small membrane flower basket and chill seats are dispersed in the big net and gently sway when the net moves, adding social understanding to the swaying break.

Bouncing walks and crawls

The softly bouncing coromesh spurs both cautious walks and crawls and wild climbs, adding a social and highly physically demanding play journey which trains both motor skills, thinking skills and muscles.

For generations of children, this means endless hours of play.

How to install a playground like this?

At KOMPAN we turn ideas into reality - all the way from defining the playground concept until the playground is installed.

Building a playground is not child’s play. It is a major construction. From clearing the area for foundations to finishing off the site, it involves heavy equipment, extensive materials, complex products and expert knowledge. All these factors must be precisely coordinated to avoid delays. Our expert teams have done it many times and are happy to take this load off your shoulders.
