Dragon Head & Seat
Natural School Playgrounds - School Playground Equipment
The Dragon Head & Seat is a large, majestic handcarved sculpture that allows children to get creative but also gives them comfortable seating to socialise and relax on.
This magical concept is designed to encourage expressive role play for children - which will help promote social integration, helping children improve their people skills.
The attached bench is an effective seating area, and like the rest of this sculpture it is made out of sustainable, long lasting redwood which is not prone to splinters, like 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.
