Surfer, Optic

Color METAL GREY

The Optic Surfer is a novel sensory activity: a place for visual amazement, wonder and development of logical thinking that attracts children for a playground break. There are three different moiré effects and two dichroic panels. The moiré panels fascinate with the patterns that look different from glance to glance, depending on the eye's focus. Children report that they get curious about the reason for the patterns behaving differently, and want to debate why not everyone can see the patterns. This provides the opportunity for negotiation, explaining and helping others out. This is great training in cooperation and teamwork that supports these skills in school. The dichroic panels intrigue children with their color changes, highly depending on the surrounding lights. The rainbow colors throw colorful shadows on the ground and light up friends' faces with their color-changing reflections. The optic panels of the Surfer make children wonder, think and seek explanations for the phenomena they observe.

Play Value

Play value is the value gained from play, the value that makes the child “want” or developmentally “need” to undertake the activity and thus gives the play item holding power. Play value can be described very precisely in developmental terms, looking into the human physical, cognitive, social and emotional developmental stages.

Key Features

COR Optic Panels

<p>Turnable optic panels of two 7mm thick polycarbonate plates with a distance of 40mm. The inside graphic print consist of an inner image layer and outer transparent protection layer. Both PC panel and the water-based lacquer are UV stabilized to prevent fading of the print.</p>

PCX_HDG Steel surfaces

The steel surfaces are hot dip galvanized inside and outside with lead free zinc. The galvanization has excellent corrosion resistance in outside environments and requires low maintenance.

COR_alu clamps

Corocord aluminium clamps are used as connectors between steel posts and rope. Two aluminium castings are bolted together. The height of the clamps is thus variable.

COR Rope and S-Clamps

Corocord ropes with 19mm diameter or more are special 'Hercules' - type with galvanized six-stranded steel wires. Each strand is tightly wrapped with PES yarn. The ropes are connected by stainless steel S-Clamps which are pressed around the rope which results in a durable and vandalism solution.

Dichroic Panels

Please note: Dichroic film is a reflective material. As the sun moves around a product, there will be reflections to the environment around, which can be quite bright when the sun is at a certain angle. But as the sun moves, so will the reflections.
