School Planters and Sandpits - School Playground Equipment
Pendlewood's newest sandpit is marquee by name and marquee by nature!
It is a versatile sandpit that combines the opportunity for children to indulge in sheltered creative role play in the sandpit with a quality seating area.
The Marquee sandpit comes with sturdy seating benches on 3 sides, a colourful lid to protect the sand from any contamination and an advanced UV safety roof specifically designed to protect children from the risk of sunburn and shelter from any rain.
Constructed from robust, sustainable redwood timber - ideal for schools because it is extremely durable, low maintenance and less prone to splinters than hardwoods.
The Lid is made from HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) Plastic.
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.
