A little fresh air can go a long way, especially for children who’ve spent most of their day in a classroom. Playgrounds are the perfect way to entice young ones outside too and one of the most exciting pieces of apparatus in a playground has to be the climbing frame. They’re great for building strength and pushing a little one’s imagination. While one child may see a climbing frame as a pirate ship, another may see one as a den. They not only help push children to test and develop their balance and coordination but they also help develop a child’s creative thinking which should never be underestimated.
When buying climbing frames however, there are a multitude of different factors to consider, from safety to size as well as the age of the children your climbing frame is intended for. How much space do you have for your climbing frame? Is it going to be the only piece of equipment you offer or will it be the centre piece amongst a variety of playground options? What budget do you have and does it include the budget for installation?
You’ll need to choose the space you’re placing your climbing frame in with extreme care. Not only will you need to consider the floor space and whether it’s a safe enough platform but you’ll also need to consider space around your climbing frame which will differ depending on the size climbing frame you opt for.
Considerations For Climbing Frames
Climbing frames offer children a variety of activities in one, making them ideal for educational settings as with just one piece of equipment, many options can be given to children. They’re designed to help develop imagination as well as motor skills, social skills and even balance and coordination; they help children burn off excess energy and choosing the right one can cater to a variety of ages.

The Space net is an excellent addition to parks as it not only looks great but it offers 360 degree access, making them more enticing for children of different groups to enter and eventually socialise. They’re also made for those with minimal space that still want maximum benefit. These are intended for children 8 years and up.
For those who love the Space Net but need something more accessible for younger children, the Rota Net provides an excellent option. This climbing frame is once again compact in design but thanks to its rotating roundabout design, it provides an incredible space for little ones to climb and socialise from all angles. Intended for children age 4 years and up.
The Titan is a large scale piece of playground equipment that’s ideal for those wanting something more adventurous for children aged 6 years and up. From climbing walls to balance beams and even more adventurous rope obstacles, the Titan has a great mix of everything, ideal for those who are looking to add only one main piece of equipment.
The Activity Frame is similar to the Titan in that it offers an awesome mix of everything, from wall climbers to log traverse and even vertical climbers however, this climbing frame is aimed at those slightly younger, from 5 years of age instead of 6. Each activity pairs perfectly to create the large and challenging structure that can fit in a much smaller area making it ideal for those with limited space.
