More Technology Advances in the Playground Equipment World

New features in the play industry have been invented—actualizing ideas that are really extraordinary.  These creations have taken traditional playground equipment to a level probably once thought impossible.  For instance, did you ever think a clear rock wall could exist?  Can you even think of what a bubble climber could be?  Technology in the playground realm has reached new heights, allowing children to have new experiences; and equipping landscape architects with even more design options.

The clear rock wall is from Xccent Play is the first of its kind.  On the Xccent website, details of the equipment are as such: it is, “made of virtually indestructible extruded polycarbonate,” and includes 70 holds, “made of durable UV resistant polyurethane.”  Images of the wall can also be found on the site.  Obviously, the wall is built sturdy and secure, but it also has holds on both sides so that kids can climb facing each other—a truly unique experience.  The wall is fresh, but what’s better is that it continues to offer the benefits of play

Another novel feature is the bubble climber, from Miracle.  This colorful attraction has a form like no other.  Instead of the traditional holds that kids use to climb on, it has bubbles cut out that offer the same activity but with a different twist.  The aesthetic appeal is also increased with a more organic feel that stems from flowing curves.  The looks are also improved with vivid colors like bright red and green.  This contemporary playground update will turn any playground from bland to original and remarkable.

These two innovative features take tradition, stick it in the oven, and turn up the heat a couple notches.  When modern technology teams with original thinking, anything is possible—in the playground world, that means more fun.
