What are Playground Slides?
Commercial playground slides are always a popular choice amongst children of all ages. When visiting a playground, the slide is often the activity they run to first and demand a final ride before leaving – 'just one more time, please!" A commercial slide is available in three versions: a freestanding slide, a slide attached to a playground structure or an embankment slide.
Public slides require stringent safety standards and certifications compliant with national legislation and all KOMPAN playground slides are made using the highest quality materials to ensure the safety of the children using them.
