Product Code: EPPHC160373

From £8,670 ex. VAT

Available in two sizes to suit different sized playgrounds and budgets our Free Flow Castle Play Platform is great for active fun, guaranteed to fire imaginations, excite plenty of classroom discussion AND creates a real statement in the playground.

A staircase on the right hand side leads to the first raised "lookout" tower which then leads to a walkway and open platform. The second walkway takes you to the second raised "lookout" tower and the third walkway leads to a second staircase down to the ground level castle "turret".

This castle really encourages active fun and endless circuits as children are drawn around the interlinking walkways, it combines the excitement of being higher than ground level and that of being in a castle where you never know who you might meet around the next corner.  Will it be friend or foe ...or dragon?

The towers and turrets all have open doorways and narrow castle style windows and the open platform is left free for children to develop their own ideas for the space.  

The open platform can also be a super place for summer story times.

The staircases, walkways and open platform are protected by balustrade rails.

Please note that as the size increases the walkways increase from 1.5m (4ft 11in) to 3m (9ft 10in) but the heights of the walls and the dimensions of each tower remains constant.

    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.

    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.
