Our Story

Jamie Bruce Jones - our MD has a background in the timber industry that stretches back 40 years. Based in central Scotland, we have been designing, building and installing quality play equipment for over 25 years.

Outdoor play experts

We have an in-depth knowledge of how children play, which we combine with our experience in the sector ensuring we advise and inform with confidence.

We care about the environment

We only use timbers from sustainably managed sources and all products carry FSC or PEFC chain of custody certification. Timber is a renewable resource, recyclable, biodegradable and sustainable.

Working with others

We regularly work with local authorities, architects and housing developers, community groups, tourist destinations, town, parish and community councils, and the leisure industry.

Scottish made, UK-wide service

Working from our base in Scotland we have a team that designs, manufactures and installs nationwide. Our contracts department is able to ensure a fast and efficient means of delivering products.

Committed to safety

As members of RoSPA we take playground safety seriously. However, we also believe it is important for children to experience challenges and evaluate risk. We are continually encouraged by the movement toward risk benefit assessment and balance the benefits of risk when creating or developing a playground or outdoor learning space. All our equipment is designed and manufactured to conform to (and often exceed) the requirements of European Safety Standard EN 1176. Where appropriate, equipment is independently tested and carries TUV certification for compliance with EN 1176 and EN 1177.

Experienced in working with schools and commercial organisations

As a company that started out solely building domestic play equipment, we have continued to expand our range of products in new and innovative ways. We have now supplied play equipment to over 1,000 educational establishments. We have a thorough understanding of the procedures required to install play equipment and work alongside the various organisations to make it all happen smoothly. We have also supplied equipment for over 500 public parks, hotel grounds and pub gardens, caravan parks and camp sites, leisure facilities, tourist destinations and self-catering accommodation.

Flexible in our approach

We prefer working with timber however we understand that, on occasion, metal products are more suited to the brief. We therefore also supply a range of metal playpark equipment, which is as vandal-proof as possible, ensuring the best solution for certain situations.

Accredited playground inspectors

We have registered and certificated RPII inspectors as part of our team who regularly carry out maintenance checks as required.

Experienced installation engineers

We have our own team of Installation Engineers with upto-date training in the requirements of EN 1176 who also ensure bespoke designs meet all the regulatory standards. All installations are carried out in accordance with the Association of Playground Industries (API) guidelines. We leave the site clean and tidy and, at school installations, take into account the safety of children in the area during the school day.

Caledonia Play is proud to be the only independent wooden play equipment manufacturer in Scotland

Caledonia Play uses its knowledge of the timber industry and intimate understanding of working with timber to create unique and robust play equipment. Using timbers from sustainably managed sources, Caledonia Play ensures best value by designing products that are not only strong and durable but also retain the natural beauty of the wood.

Experts at working with timber Timber is a natural material made from many different species with a variety of qualities, durability, strength and flexibility. These qualities can be affected by the way the timber is sawn and processed, handled and stored. In short, wood is not timber. At Caledonia Play, we use our expertise to create visually appealing and well-built products. We carefully select timbers based on their unique qualities to minimize future maintenance. Our goal is to enhance the natural beauty of the timber while ensuring strength and durability. To protect against rot and moisture, we use galvanized metal extension feet to elevate timber in the ground. These hold the timber clear of the ground, eliminating the effect of ground moisture.

Douglas Fir is an orange/red coloured wood which is naturally strong and durable without requiring any chemical treatment. The machine rounded Norway Spruce timber is supplied from our partners’ production line in Central Europe, and is slow-grown and dense therefore has less inclination to twist, warp or bend. Machine rounded timber is approximately 50% stronger than square-sawn timber. Red wood machine rounded poles are quarter sawn to limit splitting. All sawn and dressed timbers are pressure-treated and stress graded to C24. Robinia timber retains the natural shape and taper of the tree, so forming an even more natural looking structure when used to create play equipment.

On larger sections of timber, a heat sealed bitumen sleeve is applied before concreting into position.

The Donaldson Trust West Lothian

Our products are specifically designed to suit the Scottish climate and as such, are strong and robust enough to withstand all types of weather. As wood is a natural product, it will expand and contract as the temperature changes, without affecting the strength, durability and safety of the play equipment. 4

For children using agility items, younger ones may prefer playful activities at lower levels rather than those requiring strength and coordination. Stepping and balance items on the trail aid in developing gross motor skills and spatial awareness. Careful planning of item placement and spacing ensures a smooth progression for children all along the trail.

Agility Cube The Agility Cube is a square formation made up of four different traversing agility trail items. It is specifically designed for school playgrounds with limited space, requiring less safety surfacing compared to linear setups. It can be installed on tarmac with rubber safety surfacing, allowing year-round usability even in wet and muddy conditions. We provide guidance on the optimal combination of products based on the age group, size, and ability of the users. Our goal is to offer a reasonable challenge that promotes participation without being excessively difficult. The poles undergo careful processing and sanding to achieve a smooth finish. Additionally, the timbers in the ground are equipped with heat-sealed bitumen sleeves to prevent rotting. These additional measures ensure the uniqueness and durability of our play equipment.

When placed on tarmac, with wetpour safety surfacing, the cube is an ideal wet or cold weather playground activity and is guaranteed to be well used before, after and during school hours.

Many natural play items have a high play value meaning that children can use them in many different ways


Using natural elements like tree logs in outdoor play areas can provide numerous benefits. Natural elements can be used as stepping stones, balance beams, or seating areas, promoting physical activity and coordination skills. They also add a touch of nature to the play environment, fostering a sense of connection with the outdoors. Additionally, natural elements can spark imaginative play, enhancing children’s sensory experiences and thus encouraging a deeper appreciation for the natural world.

Information How to order

Spare parts

Warranty

Safety

Contact the office on 01577 840570 to place your order. Alternatively you can email us on sales@caledoniaplay.com or for general enquiries email info@caledoniaplay.com.

All our timbers carry a seven year warranty against rot. Metal products are either galvanised or powder coated stainless steel and carry a one year warranty. Our steel-cored multi-strand nylon ropes are specifically designed for the playground and leisure environment and carry a one year warranty. Normal wear and tear applies - acts of vandalism and accidental damage are excluded from our warranty.

Surfacing

Children may fall from even the safest piece of equipment when playing in any play area. The purpose of safety surfacing is to cushion the impact and reduce the severity of an injury resulting from an accidental fall. We offer a range of playground safety surfacing to suit your particular site, including grass safety mats, rubber wetpour, synthetic grass and various types of loose fill. All our products meet the requirements of EN 1176 and EN 1177 for public use play areas.

Environmental Policy

Alongside our belief that every child has a right to play, we are committed to doing our part to ensure the future of our planet. We only use timbers from sustainably managed sources and many products carry FSC or PEFC Chain of Custody Certification. Timber is a renewable resource, recyclable, biodegradable and sustainable.

Spare parts are available on request. Please contact the office on 01577 840570 or email us on sales@caledoniaplay.com for more information.

As members of RoSPA we take playground safety seriously. However, we also believe it is important for children to experience challenges and evaluate risk. We are encouraged by the movement toward risk benefit assessment and will take into account the principles, ensuring a balance when creating or developing a playground. All our equipment is designed and manufactured to meet (and often exceed) the requirements of European Safety Standard EN 1176. Where appropriate equipment is independently tested and carries TUV certification for compliance with EN 1176 and EN 1177.

Quality

We use steel cored multi strand nylon ropes designed specifically for the playground and leisure environment. All our metal work including feet, handrails and slides are either galvanised and powder-coated or stainless-steel.

Postsaver Sleeves and Metal Feet

Timber posts have a tendency to rot at the point where they enter the ground – the ground line section. This is now preventable by fitting a postsaver sleeve to the vulnerable part. This will keep the causes of ground rot out and the preservative in, ensuring that the new piece of equipment will last for many years. Metal feet can also be attached to ensure the timber is preserved and to prevent against vandalism to some degree. We use postsaver sleeves or metal feet as standard on all the products that are sunk into the ground.

Installation

We have our own team of installation engineers all of whom are Disclosure checked and have up-to-date training in the requirements of EN 1176. All installations are carried out in accordance with the Association of Playground Industries (API) guidelines. We leave the site clean and tidy and take into account the safety of children during the school day.
