Step Up - The Pathfinder
Add to wish list

Product Code: SU160249

£3,050 ex. VAT

The second of our Step Up range, The Pathfinder includes three interlinking platforms that encourage free-flow outdoor play and allow children to make the most of play time while gaining social and physical skills

The Pathfinder has three same size platforms, two interlinking walkways and two staircase access points.  

The double access aspect of the Pathfinder encourages children to make circuits and helps to minimise potential congestion.

A low staircase at the front leads to the first platform which then leads onto a walkway and the second platform. From here another walkway leads to the third platform with a staircase.

The Pathfinder is a great and safe way for children to learn and develop skills such as turn-taking and communication and also provides an arena that feels challenging as it because it is set above ground level.  The element of challenge is a crucial part of play and helps boosts confidence and self-esteem.

The entire structure is protected with balustrade rails painted in bright and attractive colours and the stairs are finished in black rubberised anti-slip paint.
