Low-Carbon Climbing Structures
Climbing structures made of 76% recycled waste
The new climbing structures are not only more sustainable, but they also serve a teaching purpose for their young users. The climbing structures are made from textile and post-consumer waste sources, lowering the carbon emission footprint by up to 40% CO₂e/kg when compared to standard versions.
Low carbon - how?
Posts of textile waste
The posts on the climbing structures set are made of textile waste. A new ground-breaking innovation in sustainably conscious playgrounds - we call it TexMade™. Texmade™ posts have a 60% lower carbon-emission footprint compared to traditional steel posts.
Panels made of ocean waste
The ocean green colored panels on the climbing structures are made of 100% post-consumer ocean recycled waste and have a lower carbon emission footprint than traditional panels.
How we craft our textile playground posts
... for older children, and even adults, new research has shown that climbing supports the working memory [...] In a child’s universe, it is the ability to remember what the teacher just told you
From white paper "Climbing Clever" by Jeanette Fich Jespersen & Suzanne Flannery Quinn - KOMPAN Play Institute
So basic, yet so important
Why add balancing & climbing equipment to your schoolyard?
By climbing, children have fun while developing important life skills. They enhance their reading skills and their memory.
Why is that? Climbing and balancing greatly impact motor skills like balance, cross-coordination, and cognitive development. But that's not why they climb; they're simply having fun!
