What are BLOQX™?
The artful BLOQX™ play system is a scalable sculptural take on a playground climbing wall for older children. So, if you are looking for a challenging and artful variant of a commercial playground climbing wall – You have come to the right place.
The BLOQX™ play system breaks numerous playground stereotypes. There are no slides or spinning elements, just a challenging chance to grab a hold and make your way around, through and over a metal maze. This modern take on a playground bouldering wall breaks more than stereotypes. The system’s target audience is children who are traditionally hard to entertain or impress: tweens and teens. It’s a natural stimulator of physical development and muscle strength and sparks creative and logical thinking when finding new ways around the structure. Perhaps more than any other single product, BLOQX™ displays the link between play and art.

What are the benefits of BLOQX™?
BLOQX™ is like no other playground element. It combines the test of moving around and over a geometrical puzzle with a challenging climb. The reward for getting the ascent right is reflective time inside one of the elevated cubes. Creating new climbing routes and methods with friends or individually makes for hours of thrill and climbing play. The varied grip and panel positions also help to develop muscle strength and motor skills: cross-body coordination, proprioception and spatial awareness. Thus having a positive impact on concentration skills and social-emotional skills, such as consideration used when children climb and meet on the BLOQX™.
Why is Climbing important?
Research suggests that challenging climbing equipment for tweens and teenagers is prevalent. And the BLOQX™ play system is an excellent structure for older school kids. The social climbing experience is valued, and gathering at the top of a cube after a challenging climb is the perfect hang-out spot before descending and returning to the classroom. Climbing strengthens children’s cognitive development and supports working memory, enabling the children to remember what was taught in class much more likely.
Scalable and Customisable Climbers
BLOQX™ is a great playground system that differs from other playground equipment in its colourisation – the pentagon shapes are in a single colour, but like a paint chart, the sides can be toned versions of the dominant colour. This flexibility in colour and many configurable options enable many intriguing scalable combinations that vary in look and feel. The BLOQX™ play system is also available in a more sustainably conscious version.
The sculptural concept behind the BLOQX™ is why these innovative playground boulders are a favoured part of many architects looking for solutions that complement modern urban spaces.
