The Stegosaurus

'The Stegosaurus is like a complete playground in one big play structure. It has a large play capacity and a lot of truncated octahedron nets that are so good to climb in, around and over ...'

The Stegosaurus - LARGE

Like a stretched Spacenet®

Imagine stretching a Corocord® Spacenet ... first in one direction and then a little bit in the other. That is kind of how we designed the Stegosaurus structure. On the top this stretch creates a bridge that is linked with another access membrane bridge at one end, and a slide on the opposite end. This makes the Stegosaurus seem like a bouncy gangway going through a huge climbing net. This huge climbing net holds a lot of play features like e.g. a membrane path inside the net structure, together with membrane chill seats, and a climbing ramp at ground level.

Inspirational playgrounds from KOMPAN Design Studio are conceptual, and can serve as starting point for your specific play landmark. Our skilled designers at KOMPAN Design Studio can take any idea or concept and create an architectural gem for you.

The inspirational playground concept shown here is designed by KOMPAN Design Studio. The playground is completely customised, and therefore final designs and data will depend on regional safety standards.

Loaded with play activities

Climbing the gangway

The membrane bridge makes a nice, swaying climb up or glide down. This trains children’s sense of balance and space, which help them navigate their surroundings securely.

A swaying break

The membrane chill seats is dispersed in the big net and gently sways when the nets move, adding social understanding to the swaying break.

Cosy moving meeting points

The bouncy membrane meeting points are interconnected with the nets and make the child feel its own and all their friends’ movements, adding to social-emotional skills such as considering others.

Fast egress

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

Climbing challenge

The octahedron nets train important motor skills such as proprioception, spatial awareness and cross-body coordination. These skills are fundamental for risk assessment when for instance judging and navigating traffic securely. All major muscle groups are trained thoroughly when the child climbs the big meshes, holding on tight.

Yes! Playgrounds should be inclusive and offer play for all, that’s the KOMPAN philosophy. We work with universal design to ensure that children of all abilities, including children with disabilities, can participate in the play and enjoy thrilling play.

Is this playground durable?

Yes! All KOMPAN playgrounds are built to withstand decades of weather and usage.

Our engineers carefully calculate the static strength of each playground structure, and our production uses only the highest quality materials. Fifty years of testing through play around the world has given us extensive knowledge on how to achieve extreme durability. This results in minimal downtime and a low total cost of ownership. For generations of children, this means endless hours of play.

Is this playground safe and certifiable?

Yes! All KOMPAN inspirational playground equipment is safe and certifiable - as is every product we have designed for more than 50 years.

At KOMPAN we have, since 1970, developed outdoor play equipment that stimulates and challenges children, with safety as the paramount consideration. Every part of the design, engineering, production and construction process is geared to ingrain safety into the final products that are certifiable by TÜV.

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.
