Imagination Frame

Early Years Nature - Early Years Playground Equipment


The Imagination Frame is a design that allows you as a nursery school to challenge and enable your pupils get creative and inventive.

Essentially a robustly composed frame of sustainable redwood timber, the imagination frame is aimed for schools to use it any manner possible.  Its natural look means it will be right at home as part of any outdoor play area.

Ideas that have been tried include hanging pots and pans so they can be used as ‘musical' instruments - helping young children understand different sounds;  hanging up bird feed bags to attract our feathered friends or even using the frames as goalposts! The Imagination Frame allows anything!

Another bonus is that this is a design that allows for it to be constantly re-invented, so the youngsters will never be bored.

Please note that we DO NOT provide any hooks or equipment to hang from the Imagination Frame.

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.
