What are Playground Towers? 

The Commercial GIANTS Play Towers are pre-built all-in-one play systems with various play activities such as sliding, climbing and swinging gathered in one play structure.  

These public play structures are to playgrounds what skyscrapers are to a city. Tall and impressive, they dominate any park or schoolyard; the sheer thrilling seven or nine meters up into the sky is an irresistible magnet for teenagers. The layered construction always means it is more stumble than tumble. Enclosed in various see-through and themed panels, children from six to twelve can navigate their way to their desired interests. Here they decide on the most fun route down, back step-by-step or use the tall tunnel that way down becomes an open slide. 

The tall GIANT playground towers are jam-packed with physical and cognitive play activities from top to bottom, inside and out, all of which are designed to WOW and challenge school-aged children. The themed exterior with printed graphics on the panels adds an extra layer of play by stimulating children's imagination and desire to play. 

Get ready to be WOWed with loads of physical activity and fun!

    Benefits of Playground Towers 

    The open and closed slide and the fireman's pole and bannister bars offer each their fast ride, and this severe fun stimulates social-emotional skills such as self-regulation and empathy. The balance bridge and pipe climber add thrill to the open towers also. They stimulate cross-coordination and the senses of balance and space, which is helpful in, e.g. managing street traffic. On the ground level, play shells and hammocks create an attractive point for all to participate and make friends in play. The dominant feature of a GIANT playground tower is its height. It is not just a visual aspect that demands more significant physical effort. The extra meters show daring teenagers themselves in the slides where the thrill of speed significantly increases. The height also means that the bridge ways between the tall and the second tower can be dramatic, perhaps offering children the biggest single challenge in the play feature. 

    Age-Appropriate Play Equipment for Teenagers  

    The GIANTS tall playground structures are playground systems that come with a massive invitation to play. Like our other play systems Galaxy and BLOQX climbing walls, these commercial playgrounds for teenagers encourage age-appropriate creative play that helps build language and communication skills and encourages and improves teamwork. When kids play, they develop games and rules, realising they must work together to get the most out of them. Through fun, children develop skills that will help them throughout their lives. Play Towers are also great for practising safe risk-taking. Tweens and teenagers can explore their limits in a safe and controlled environment – e.g., sitting at the top of the tower or crossing a rope bridge.  

    The ability to accommodate many children with a play system is a significant advantage for organisations wanting to satisfy many children simultaneously, and the diversity of play opportunities it offers. A Giant play unit offers many activities in one rather than ensuring individual freestanding equipment for all of them.

    Choosing the Right GIANTS Playground Tower 

    The commercial GIANTS Playground towers are about focused adventure, often with themes appropriate to their surroundings. They can illustrate local histories, like a palace or a town's pioneer origins or, on a broader tone, take play into discovering jungles, oceans, the freezing Artic or the vastness of space. These public play structures are GIANT in size and gigantic challenging play motivators, making them perfect playground equipment for teenagers. A large, visually appealing structure creates a centrepiece that draws in children and can increase the activity and popularity in your area immensely. We offer the same high quality across the range. Our tall playground towers are solid and sturdy constructions made from commercial-grade quality for safety and longevity; thus, they are an excellent long-term investment. 

    Frequently asked questions

    What is a playground tower, and how is it different from other playground equipment? 

    A tall playground tower differs from other playgrounds by centralising and gathering play activities in one play system. Often play activities on public playgrounds are spread out, whereas play towers offer play activities all within one play structure.

    Can they be customised? 

    Let's talk; although we have our current range, our design team has investigated many avenues. Getting exactly what you want might only be a conversation away. We love innovation and customer input.

    What is the maintenance process, and how often must it be done? 

    In order to protect children's safety, KOMPAN recommends that all play structures and the surrounding resilient surfaces be inspected and maintained to ensure the play area remains safe and trouble-free. Depending on the specific structure, we recommend operational inspections every 1 to 3 months; please contact your local sales consultant for more information on maintenance. Templates for maintenance inspections can be downloaded from

    Are the play towers safe? 

    Yes, the posts carrying the GIANT towers use a hexagonal pattern to give a voluminous look and maximum stability. A triangular side tower supports all towers to provide extra support. Our play systems comply with stringent safety standards and include safety features like nets and protection.

    Where are the Play Towers most suitable?

    The play towers are suitable for public parks or schoolyards with a relatively good amount of space where you need to accommodate many children at a time. Commercial play equipment, such as a tall playground structure, is also great if you want to create attraction in your community.

    How many children can play on a GIANT at the same time?

    In truth, we don't place a numerical limit. The GIANTS are of different configurations and sizes. All our materials are tested and surpass the highest safety levels in the industry. Playground activity tends to be self-adjusting; children seem to have a natural ability to swarm and disperse when numbers get too uncomfortable.
