Having a small garden doesn’t mean your children can’t have big fun. Where space is limited, climbing frame accessories offer a cost effective solution to keeping your climbing frame interesting without the need for a larger frame.

Climbing frame accessories are perfect for frames of all shapes and sizes. They challenge growing children and stimulate imaginations for creative play by younger kids.

Safety Surfacing

Once your climbing frame is build and in place, you may wish to consider adding your choice of safety surfacing around the perimeter. It is most important to focus on areas on high traffic and impact such as around swings and at the base of a wavy slide, where falls and tumbles are most likely to occur. If you would like complete peace of mind, you are free to surround your entire frame. Choose from rubber garden mats which have holes for grass to grow, or playbark for a more natural look and feel.
