Where can Dome Climbing Playgrounds be installed?

Climbing activities are suitable for all outdoor areas and our dome climbing units can be installed in community parks, schools or leisure facilities. With different sizes available the footprint of these units varies and ensures they are suitable for a variety of sites. Climbing domes are often the centre piece of the play area and other freestanding play equipment can be installed close by.

Climbing domes attract children's attention - they love the shape and the challenging climb. To ensure your play area has equipment to suit your users it is important to consider budget, size of your play area, age range and play capacity. Choosing equipment can be difficult due to the range of products available but our design and sales team can help provide solutions and pricing for your area.

Commercial play equipment can be expensive so when making such a large investment it is important to ensure the materials used are of the highest quality to be able to withstand the Irish weather and also that the units are certified to be installed in Ireland.
