Sustainability

We care about children, and we care about their future.

Let’s play green.

For a brighter future, we never stop researching and implementing new ways to reduce our environmental footprint.

• During procurement, every effort is made to use completely sustainable resources or raw materials generated through recycled waste.
 
• In manufacturing, what little waste we produce is recycled. In play, 100% safe products are the target and the number one priority.

 

SAFE MATERIAL SURFACES

A great playground interacts with children, and children touch, jump, slide, kick and might even kiss or lick the playground. That is why all surfaces need to be safe. We go beyond the required outdoor playground standards and also comply with the toy standard EN 71-3 for Migration of Certain Elements.

SUSTAINABLE WOOD

Robinia is amongst the most prolific trees. It's strong and grows quickly, making it the perfect partner for our wooden products.

Our Robinia supplies come from European plantations and natural forest under responsible and sustainable forest management.

We also offer other types of wood certified by FSC®.

NO WASTE

In the workshop, we strive for the most efficient material usage possible, with the rest being recycled. For example, the cutting-out of panels is a process performed by laser-cutting machines to minimise residue.

All this residue is recycled along with every offcut of plastic and speck of sawdust.

RECYCLED PLASTIC

The KOMPAN EcoCoreTM panel, made of layers of HDPE, has many applications in playgrounds and outdoor fitness, such as sides, roofs and seats.

It is a highly durable, eco-friendly panel, which is not only recyclable after use, but also consists of a core produced from 100% recycled and controlled material.

RECYCLED WOOD

Wood-plastic composite panels are used for our Multi-Use Games Areas. They are made of recycled wood and HDPE.

Besides its green profile, the panel has the same texture look as wood, is highly durable and never needs painting or treating with oil.
