Two Swings & Trapeze Bar
Children love to swing. Whether they’re playing with friends or siblings. Our belt swings have a grippy surface and are flexible so they wrap around to ‘hold’ your children’s hips as they sit. This inspires extra confidence and provides as much safety as possible. Trapeze bars are popular with older children as they can climb, hand or swing from aerobatic handles. Buy a baby seat and swap with any swing accessory in seconds.
Our swings are manufactured from high-quality injection moulded EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) plastic, with PP welds on the ropes ensuring they’re safe and secure.
Our swings are fixed to our strong swing beam (13cm x 7.5cm) by heavy duty swing hangers. Swings are quick and easy to fit with correct spacing because we have pre-drilled mounting points. Our swing beam is constructed using discreet and extra strong metal clamps.

Tube Slide/Straight Wave Slide
Exclusive to us, our slides are manufactured in our Canadian factory from UV protected HPDE plastic, it provides great strength and stability.
The Nova climbing frame features two slides one that exits from the front (straight slide) and another that exits out of the side (tube slide) of the upper fort. All of our slides features safety features to keep your children safe whilst sliding.
High rails mean children have secure hand grips to help them sit down onto (or climb up) to slide and ensure they’re retained all the way down. Beautifully smooth from the front, we use dual reinforcement for the sides and rear of the slide. This ensures it’s solid and durable for children of all ages (3-14 years).
The wave in the middle of the slide provides a little extra fun, whilst the reduced gradient and step at the bottom means they land on their feet, rather than their bum.

- Controlled Exit
Climbing Rockwall & Ladder
Our rock wall combines with a slatted ladder to make it suitable for all ages. Our rock wall ladder is mounted at a 70° angle, making it fun and safe to climb.
Including 5 dual colour rocks in various shapes. These fun climbing rocks are mounted with two recessed screws to prevent spinning.
Our rocks are manufactured from extrusion blow moulded HDPE, guaranteeing a safe and durable climbing rock which will not chip or scratch like ceramic rocks.
The monkey ladder swing is always a popular feature with children enabling them to swing care freely into the upper deck. Located at the back of the fort measuring 134cm out, it provides a challenging swing, which helps to build children’s upper body strength and also helps with co-ordination.

Monkey bars are the challenge that kids love, these have four swings to complete as an exciting way to the play fort. You have a step up so they can reach up for the first rung of the ladder. Once up they have challenging gap that the youngest children may need a little help. However, watch their confidence and strength grow as you are no longer needed
Made from the same quality cedar wood the rungs are strong, but gentle on young hands having been sanded to create a smooth easily gripable surface for kids to hang and swing from one to the next landing up on the play deck.
Creating an additional challenge for kids is a great way of extending the life span of climbing frames so older children keep playing outside in your garden.

Children love role play, so why not let their imagination run wild in their very own playhouse. Enclosed in the lower part of the play fort, the playhouse measures approximately 165.7cm x 109cm, so provides plenty of play space.
The lower playhouse of the Nova Climbing Frame is filled with fun activities that will help to keep your children entertained. Access can be gained through the magnetically fastening door located around the front of the set into the spacious lower play area. Located at the far end of the set as you enter is the kitchenette, which features a play sink and hob and a number of fun play utensils. Around the back of the playset is the cafe counter area that features a chalkboard and free standing bench. This is ideal for children who want to play shop, check-in desk or any other games.
The standing room inside the playhouse is 120cm. The playhouse wall ensures children cannot accidentally walk into the swing area.

The large raised play deck is one of the most popular features on our forts. Children simply love to climb up to the deck and waive down from the windows. Complete with green window frames, or safety mesh in open window areas it’s a fun, enjoyable and creative hideaway.
The cabin on the Nova climbing frame benefits from the Next Generation add-on, which increases the overall footprint of the fort structure to 165cm wide by 109cm in depth. This provides a substantial area for your children to play in. On the upper level, there is a beautifully designed roof which provides ample headroom of 165cm from floor to roof peak. There are also a number of well position windows for looking out over the garden below. The telescope or captains wheel would lend itself perfectly to the upper deck as your children can pretend they are adrift on the high seas looking for new lands to explore.
