What are the pitfalls of installing a large playground?

When installing a large playground with a large play capacity, it takes time and a team of knowledgeable installers. Therefore, we prioritize a professional team that has experience with installing KOMPAN playground equipment.

In Tallinn, they wanted a truly spectacular custom-made 10-meter-high Robinia castle. The castle is the biggest KOMPAN Robinia castle in the world, and it took no less than 10 cranes to install the impressive castle, a job that required a professional installation team.

Is it easier to install a small playground?

You might think that installing a smaller playground is easy, or perhaps a fun DIY project, but many thoughts and precautions are still an absolute necessity to ensure safe play for the users.

A smaller playground can be the perfect way to optimize smaller spaces, and if you chose our core or standard products, the installation time will be faster. However, you will still be left with a playground that live up to your needs and wishes.

What to consider

When you start designing and installing a new play or fitness area you need to consider a lot of detail like surface, budget, the users, material, surroundings, as well as the local government regulations, certifications, and safety precautions.

KOMPAN can help with all the above-mentioned areas and are happy to lift the burden from your shoulders as your playground installation company.

4 considerations

  1. Budget: The amount of equipment and the area of the play or fitness site depend on your budget. When we know your budget, it is easier to find the perfect solution to fit your needs. Interested in knowing the cost of building a playground, check out our site of playground costs here. 

  2. The users: Who should use the area? Shall the playground cater to all age groups or maybe have inclusive play designs thought into it?

  3. The surroundings: Are you planning to build your next playground in a park? A wooden playground would fit perfectly with the aesthetic. Do you want to captivate something unique about the area, a custom design might be the solution?

  4. Material and Surface: Should the equipment be made from Robina wood, Steel, or maybe from our GreenLine products? And would you like the surface of the area to be sand, grass, or our FLEXOTOP™ ECO surfacing
