Saturn Carousel

Color METAL GREY

Loading Designer
The immense spin invitation of the Saturn Carousel is enough to make any child's head turn: this needs to be tested now. And then again, and again. There is nothing like spinning to keep play going. On Saturn, seats and grips provide great holds for being seated, standing – or both, more together on one seat. Apart from being great fun, spinning the Saturn Caroussel trains motor skills such as sense of balance and space. Those are both important for judging distances, speed and objects in space. This is crucial e.g. for managing traffic safely. The spinning trains Arm, leg and core muscles. Bone density is built when jumping off. When pushing and pulling friends around, the cardio gets trained intensely. The two seats encourage group play and cooperation, training important social-emotional skills such as empathy, turn-taking and cooperation.

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

GXY_Saturn rope

Saturn ropes has six-stranded steel wires and a steel wire core. Each strand is tightly wrapped with PES yarn, which is melted onto each individual strand. After initial friction has removed the surface fibers, a harder PES coating remains to protect each strand, making the ropes highly wear- and vandalism-resistant.

GXY_Seat

The special designed seat is made of a stainless-steel insert covered with a soft layer of PUR rubber. The seat is impact tested to fulfill all global playground standards and the rope has an ergonomic handhold of a 100cm long molded on PUR rubber handle.

GXY_Handles

The two angled top handles are made of a molded PP insert with an outer soft layer of TPV rubber. The handle is attached to the pipe with a galvanized steel inlay to ensure strength and durability.

General_Steel

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 minimal maintenance.

General_Bearing

Heavy duty engineered bearing system with single row deep groove ball bearings with rubber seals. The fully closed bearing construction is lifetime lubricated and maintenance free.
