Twin Towered Castle
Add to wish list

Product Code: EPPHC130531

From £4,280 ex. VAT

Skipton Castle in Yorkshire withstood a three year siege during the English civil war; we’re not promising that our twin towered would fare as well in those circumstances but it is certainly built to withstand the rigours of the playground.

This playground Castle has two tall towers to the front separated by an open doorway that leads into an open decked floor area.

The castle has three open doorways which facilitate the creation of different circuits into and out of the structure as a whole. 

There are also four castle style slit windows in each tower, as well as having a fitted bench along one wall.

The decked area behind the two towers has a central staircase which leads up to a long walkway at the back of the castle, with "secret crawl-along dungeon" below.

The walls at the rear to the walkway are staggered to give the effect of castle turrets and are tallest in the corners which also have three slit windows to echo those on the front towers.

This twin towered castle is a great addition to any playground as it provides an imaginative play prop that includes different areas that can be used for different things.  The towers are great places to hideaway.  The decked area is a great communal space.  The walkway provides a raised area for games and even a backdrop for school plays

The walkway and staircase are protected by balustrade rails. 

Available in three sizes to suit different playgrounds and budgets.  The heights of the walls and internal platform remain the same.

    Maintenance Required

    • Ensure that an air gap is maintained under the base and around all sides; check on an regular basis to ensure that there is no build-up of debris.
    • Check edges and corners regularly to ensure that knocks to the structure have not caused a splinter hazard, if that has occurred sand down with sandpaper and re-treat the sanded area.
    • The wood preservative  will need re-coating every so often; (the same type of time scale as your house) this does depend on the prevailing weather conditions but would typically be 2 - 4 years.

    Be aware

    • If decking becomes slippery in the wet this is due to microscopic fungi on the surface, wash off with a diluted bleach solution.
    • If small mould growths appear on the inside this is due to lack of air circulation, wipe down with a diluted bleach solution as soon as visible.
