Zip wire - single oak 50m
A ride on a zip wire guarantees fun and laughter at the playground. But a ride on this play equipment is also challenging; there may be a queue, so the child has to master waiting their turn, and must hold on tight so as not to fall off. A zip wire is also a good play device for pushing boundaries when it comes to what the child feels brave enough to try.
Challenging and overcoming a fear is the best foundation for mental development.
It trains the motor skills!
When a child whizzes down the zip wire, it activates their vestibular sense, which informs the child's brain about acceleration and maintaining a horizontal position.
The proprioceptive system guides the brain to understand information about the position and movement of body limbs (the sense of kinesthesia). And when the correct muscles are tensed at the right time, the body will stay balanced.
The child learns to coordinate their body and movements. The more the child practices, the better their coordination will be, and as the child no longer has to think about using their body, they can shift their focus to other aspects of learning.

This model consists of oak posts and is 50m in length.
Our architects have designed the zip wire for areas such as parks, housing associations and similar public outdoor spaces.
The model is available in several sizes and you can see them all by clicking on the variance to the right. Also available in a double model - see all zip wires here.
