Soft Play Structures
Commonly called 'Jungle Gyms' or 'Play Cages', our high quality Soft Play Structures are built with steel frames and wrapped in soft foam and PVC and generally cater for children of the ages of around 5 years old (and above).
The steel framework that we use features a 1.2m x 1.2m grid system, which we recommend as the best method to maximise the play capacity and ensures we can make imaginative use of the building space - which is important to us. We also design our tiers to a height of 2m (wherever possible), we do this as it allow adults to enter the Soft Play Structures to aid in supervision, in case of emergencies and for cleaning. Soft Play Structures are usually between 2 – 5 tiers (depending on available height) and would include a multitude of different play features, routes, ways up and down and they are crammed with interactivity! At Soft Brick, we have found that the main attraction is generally the classic slide - it's what the children look for first! Our designs are created to maximise the WOW factor and visibility of these particular features. As with all our products, they are designed to focus on the needs of the child and the benefits to you as our customer - nobody puts more play value into their product range than us!
Soft Play Structures often include other play zones such as Sports Courts, Battlezone Arenas, Trampolines and Car Track/Role Play Areas.
We design our play systems to be flexible and adaptable – this future proofing means you can be assured that you have every option available when the time comes for you to introduce new product.
The choice of play activities within the play area are chosen to give as wide a degree of challenge as possible, with each successive tier getting a little more challenging - so the most challenging features are at the very top! Where play activities are especially challenging, we offer alternative routes of a less challenging nature to ensure that all children can be included irrespective of their age, size or ability.
