Tradition springs to life

The seesaw is one of the oldest and most traditional of playground features. For centuries it was also one of the most basic, a plank balanced on a central fulcrum. Then along came the Springer. The Crazy Hen is not a seesaw, but KOMPAN’s design team instantly saw that the spring as a fulcrum had immense potential, especially if you employed more than one. The KOMPAN seesaw range uses two, three and even four ground-embedded springs to create movement that is not confined to just up and down. 

In addition two of the range take their technological heritage from the more traditional pivot, as in the case of the Seesaw with Tyres or the hinged Csaw.

Despite being relatively simplistic, the seesaw provides important development skills. The thrill of rocking with a friend or in small groups advances social abilities whilst training muscles and overall motor skills. The KOMPAN range broadens the potential for activities, and friendships since many children, and children of all abilities, can take part at the same time.

Outdoor play is amongst the best and most valuable forms of development activity. The events of 2020 have underlined just what it means to be without it. If there are any positives from the global lockdown it is in the realisation of what it means to get out and enjoy life and the importance of fresh air in terms of basic health.

How robust are the springs that support the seesaw?

KOMPAN springs are engineered to make the movement of the seesaws optimal for many users. The unique designed PA6 brackets fixated with stainless steel hardware ensures high safety while playing. The springs are cleaned, primed and powder coated for high durability in any environment around the world.

Do the triangular three-seat versions need three children to work properly?

Effectively yes, but that is their strong point. The three-seat saw encourages broader friendships, avoiding the feeling of exclusion that ‘my best friend’ can often generate. There’s even a tempting position for a fourth child, standing on the central pivotal platform. 

What’s the guarantee on a seesaw?

KOMPAN seesaws are designed in different materials. The EcoCoreTM HDPE plates and hot dip galvanised steel parts have a lifetime guarantee against production defects. The spring systems and other movable parts have five-year guarantees.
