Access-for-All Castle

School Play and Climb - School Playground Equipment


Pendlewood's Access-for-All castle is an award winning adventure play area that manages to combine integration with extreme!

Finishing in 3rd place in the ‘Best Playscheme' category at the highly respected 2008 Horticulture Week Landscape and Amenity Awards, the Access-for-All Castle is a favourite with children and play experts alike.

The ground breaking design stands at 1.2 metres high, it includes facilities for children of varying ages and abilities, such as a chained rolling bridge, traversing walls, a twisting platform and a track with a water splash element. There is a ramp entry to the design for wheelchair access, which means this exciting product can be enjoyed by all.

The DDA friendly Castle was constructed using sustainable redwood. This is an ideal timber for children's play equipment as it is low maintenance and less prone to splinters than hardwoods.

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.
