INSPIRATIONAL PLAYGROUND CONCEPT
The Stratus Cloud
'The Stratus Cloud is designed as a second generation of the original Corocord® spacial nets, re-created and re-innovated with a new technology. With three peaks – and almost 9m high – the Stratus Cloud spreads out its climbing landscape, with a space on top for softly bouncing walks and crawls ...'
Play Designer, KOMPAN Design Studio
A transparent climbing landscape
Underneath, the Stratus Cloud holds a wide range of dynamic activities, such as three sets of EPDM drops and several super cool fun items such as liana ropes and stepping pods. Best of all, the inside of the Stratus Cloud is literally a whole playground in itself! It’s bouncy and packed with fun activities such as the fantastic swaying and turning drops made of EDPM similar to the discs and available in all custom colors. The interior space can be entered via the tunnels around each support post or through the three access nets.

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.
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. The playgrounds come in all kinds of themes and can be moulded and thematised to your local area and community, or to fit a specific environment. Always loaded with the play activities we have developed over half a century. 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
The rope climb access adds harder and easier climbs up into the cloud, training cross-coordination and concentration.
The Talk Tubes engage children who can communicate with others at ground level through the tubes. This adds an element of wonder and stimulates communication and turn-taking.
Soft walks and crawls
The softly bouncing coromesh net spurs cautious walks and crawls on the outside and wild climbs on the inside, adding a social and highly physically demanding play journey which trains both motor skills, thinking skills and muscles.
A playground inside the playground
The central hang-out is a spacious, protected meeting destination and a bouncy platform to socialise and enjoy.
What a view!
The outlook hang-outs are great destinations and a bouncy platform to socialise and enjoy.
The Sturdy Drops make for an extremely appealing, swaying break. Sitting, hanging or leaning on the drop is a calming movement, which adds to a social understanding and gives a feeling of connectedness to other players as the movements of the climbers in the big cloud above are replicated into the drops.

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.
