Action has been producing climbing frames for many years and their experience means they have designed a range of climbing frames which will suit boys and girls of any age, ability or interests. The Action range will ensure that your children will get maximum play value out of their climbing frame by allowing your children to explore their imagination at play but also challenge their physical demands whilst keeping them safe. All the Action climbing frames exceed the European EN71 safety standards.
Action Climbing Frames are made from wood; one of the most environmentally freindly material available. The wood used for our frames is selected top grade pine from forests approved and managed under the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification scheme (PEFC). This guarantees that our products are made with wood from sustainably managed forests. Management of these forests involves protection of the environment, respect for the social rights of local communities and forest workers and economic viability.
The seasoned timber used on all Action Modular Climbing Frames is machined, planed smooth with rounded edges and finished with 1mm tolerances. All fixing holes and nut recesses are pre-drilled. The Timber is pressure treated to preserve its life, using a non-toxic chromium / cadmium / arsenic (CCA) free solution which is approved for children’s playground equipment. Substantial 70mm x 70mm timber sections are used for the frames (ramparts are 90mm x 90mm) and70mm x 90mm timbers are used on all the swing beams.
Wood is a natural product and as such is subject to the influence of the moisture content of the air and ground. Sometimes cracks or splits may appear, but this will not result in weakening of the structural stability. These cracks and splits are minimized by machining into rectangular sections and are more common in round section timber. Knots and grain variations are a normal component of all timber products.
