Natural School Playgrounds - School Playground Equipment
A large, visually interesting structure, our Wigwam will add size and shape to your school grounds or nature area.
Based on the traditional wigwam, this triangular structure will bring creativity and escapism to your school. It encourages imaginative role play and also acts as a great base and focal point to build a nature area around.
Made from chunky and robust sustainable redwood timber. This is excellent for children's play equipment as it is durable, low maintainence 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.
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.
