Primary school playground equipment derived from research and user participation

All grades benefit from KOMPAN's primary school playground equipment. Like all KOMPAN products, it is developed in collaboration between our product developers and our experts in child development and play at the KOMPAN Play Institute. This is to ensure high safety and quality standards and that children develop when playing.

To ensure that our primary school playground equipment develops and attracts children, the KOMPAN Play Institute works to answer the following questions:

  • What is an excellent primary school playground for children?

  • What encourages children to play, stay and return to the playground repeatedly?

  • What designs and patterns inspire children to play and develop physically, socio-emotionally, and cognitively creatively?

You can see all the play research here if you want to know more about their work.
