Up & Down Balance Beams
School Active Play - School Playground Equipment
The Up & Down Balance Beams offer an interesting twist on classic activity product.
They are slanted so that the children not only have to keep their balance but they have to negotiate a gradient too, thus adding to the challenge.
Offering children a chance to exercise and develop their mental skills, the Up & Down Beams are a fine addition to any activity trail.
Due to Environmental reasons we choose to use European Redwood. This is one of the hardest softwoods available and is suitable for exterior usage. It has a natural resilience, and the introduction of the preservative Tanalith E helps this timber have a greater life span than some hardwoods - without the negative environmental impact associated with exotic hardwoods.
Redwood timber is fully grown in 50 years. It is also harvested and replanted in 50% of the time that it takes a hardwood tree to reach maturity. All redwood used by Pendlewood is harvested from sustainable forests.
Tanalith E Pressure Treated Timber
The treated timber that Pendlewood supply is pressure treated Tanalith E.
Tanalith E conforms to the efficacy requirements of BS EN 599-1:19997, and is treated in accordance with the penetration and retention guidance given in BS EN 351-1:1996 to give a desired service life in the selected hazard class as defined in BS EN 335-1:11992.
