Caledonia Play is a family run, independent company established in 2002, which serves customers throughout the UK from its base in central Scotland. The company combines many years of experience in the timber industry with an excellent knowledge of how children can play. The philosophy underpinning the company is that children have the right to play in a safe but natural environment that can also be physically challenging and mentally stimulating. As part of our commitment to the environment, all timbers are from sustainably-managed forests. We use machine-rounded, dense, Northern European softwoods that have been pressure-treated and waxed for durability. Caledonia Play Drumbog, Drum, Nr Kinross, Scotland, KY13 0UN 01577 840570

Swing Frames Our beautiful swing frames are available in a range of widths to suit your garden size. The strong, robust designs are constructed with 10cm diameter legs, 12cm top poles and the 2.5m leg span gives a free-standing stability. All the fixing bolts are recessed into the timber to prevent clothes snagging. Our swing frames sit on grass and do not need to be concreted in. As time passes, the legs of the swing frames bed into the ground, ensuring that the product remains firm and stable. The top poles will withstand the most active and energetic children and all will support an adult’s weight. Ground anchors are provided with the Single Swing Frame for extra stability. They are not required for any other swing frame.

Grass Safety Mats We recommend that our play equipment is placed on grass, not a hard surface and that there is a clearance of approximately 1.5m around the structure and 2.0m behind swings. Play equipment in the garden does not require special safety surfacing if on grass.

Our Grass Safety Mats are made of heavy duty recycled rubber. The mats are flexible and able to be laid on contoured surfaces with the large holes offering sufficient drainage. They are also wheelchair friendly and can withstand all weathers and extreme temperatures.

To prevent ground erosion or to provide a more giving surface simply lay our Grass Safety Mats at strategic points under or around the equipment. The grass grows through the mats and can be cut as normal requiring minimum maintenance and keeping the natural look of the garden.

Many of the pictures in this brochure show installations with mats in place.

Before: Safety mats newly in place.

After: Safety mats after a few months.

Information Product Sizes All product sizes are width x depth x height. Timber Care All play equipment has been pressure-treated and impregnated with wax to protect against the seasons, so there should be no requirement to further treat the wood. Wood ages and naturally turns grey in colour. If you wish to ‘refresh’ the wood Danish or Teak Oil can be used. Play equipment should be regularly checked for splinters and sanded down when necessary. Equipment Quality Our garden play equipment is designed to be sturdy and versatile to ensure long life, while maintaining the natural beauty and character of solid wood, blending into all types of gardens. All products comply with European Safety Standards. All wood is supplied from sustainably-managed woodlands, and after careful selection the timber is machined to shape, then pressure-treated and waxed ensuring a long and durable life. We use the highest quality fixtures and fittings. Ground Anchors Concrete is not required for our garden range, however, where ground is uneven or sloping, ground anchors can be used to secure the structure. These are dug into the grass and bolted onto the frame, allowing them to be easily removed if required. On sloping ground, it can also be beneficial to sink legs of a structure into the earth to find a good level, this can be carried out with a garden spade.

Product Warranty All products are sold with a one year guarantee. There is also a one year guarantee against manufacturing faults. There is an extended guarantee of seven years against rotting timber and damage by insects. Proof of purchase must be provided by the customer. Delivery We deliver to mainland UK addresses.

Diagonal braces have 4 fixing bolts - restricting movement of the swing frames. All fixing bolts are either 13mm or 17mm to gain strength and rigidity.
