Shawn the Sheep is an interesting and versatile addition to any playground.

As well as acting as play seat, the inspirational design will encourage creative and cognitive play. Shawn also acts as an innovative sculpture within the playground or nature trail.

Handcrafted by our team of experts using Tanalised sustainable redwood. This is an excellent timber for children's equipment as it is low maintenance and less prone to splinters than a hardwood.

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.
