The Pioneer is our highest customisable climbing frame, with a single tower and platform height of 1.8m. The upstairs platform is spacious, with a balcony, and provides plenty of room for 5-6 children to play and still safely access the monkey bars, ladder and slide.

This is not your average climbing frame; it’s big, tall and a great challenge for a growing family. With features such as the super height resin-stone climbing wall, monkey bars, fireman’s pole and exhilarating spiral tube slide, it will provide lots of garden fun for children of all ages. Built with commercial grade timber - Scandinavian, pressure-treated Redwood, which is known for its good quality, this is a robust construction that will last for many years to come, reflected by our 15 year guarantee on the timber (against rot and infestations).

The ground-floor den has plenty of headroom due to the 1.8m high platform, which means that it can be used as a playhouse for a long time and not just by toddlers, unlike most cheaper alternatives. With a great choice of accessories, you can design the perfect playground for the whole family. Choose between a super slide, tube slide, monkey bars/ swings, climbing wall, scramble net, fire pole and more.

Our frames are made by hand by our team in Gloucestershire who have over 15 years’ experience. All timber is sustainably sourced from FSC or PEFC endorsed forests. If you choose our installation service, we always concrete our climbing frames in place so you can be assured the equipment is safe, sturdy and durable. Our playgrounds work best on flat, level ground but our skilled installers can work miracles on uneven landscape.

The Pioneer Set in the photos includes:

  • Tower with 1.8m platform height
  • Monkey bars/swing arm
  • Three swings of your choice (choose between rubber swing seats or rubber baby cradle seats or why not try a nest swing?)
  • 2.1m high enclosed tube slide
  • Scramble Net (armoured cable, commercial grade)
  • Climbing Wall (Resin Stone Rockwall – Safa rubber grass mats advised beneath rock wall)
  • Fire Pole
  • Ladder
  • Handgrips

For this set the recommended space required is 9.1m x 5.7m but it can be reconfigured to suit your needs.

Please note that all prices exclude Installation. Check our Professional Installation & Safety Surfacing Options tabs for more information.

    Professional Installation

    We know how hard it is to install a big climbing frame on your own, so we have a dedicated in-house installation team who can help you. We offer a complete installation service throughout mainland UK. Our installers are fully trained, clean and tidy and they will always help you site your equipment where it’s best and ensure you are happy with everything before they leave. 

    Installation starts from £625. Please contact us for a quote.

    Worried that you might be moving house in the future? We’ve got you covered. Our installation team can help you dismantle your climbing frame, take it to the new property and have it rebuilt.

    Safety Surfacing Options

    1. Play Chip

    Play Chip is our most popular safety surfacing option. We only use high quality play chip, with treated timber surround and a heavy-duty membrane base. This offers a safe playing environment and all year-round use.

    2. Safety Grass Mats

    These are 1.5m x 1m black rubber mats which are pegged in place over grass. They allow grass to grow through, so they are ideal for muddy, boggy lawns. The mats will quickly blend in the garden as the grass grows. 

    3. Artificial Grass

    We can offer luxury artificial grass which is mess free and ideal for all year-round use.

    4. Wet Pour

    Wet pour is a continuous rubber surface that gives a high quality, hard wearing, slip resistant surface requiring little or no maintenance. It is predominantly used for commercial projects, particularly playgrounds.


    For residential projects, safety surfacing options are optional most of the times. If your garden climbing frame does not have a Critical Fall Height of over 2m and is situated on grass, you don’t need safety surfacing. Most of our customisable climbing frames have a platform height of either 1.5m or 1.8m – so their Critical Fall Height is lower than 2m. Despite this, some of our customers still choose to add safety surfacing for extra safety and aesthetics, particularly when they want to separate the play area from the rest of their garden.

    For commercial projects, our commercial team can advise on all the safety surfacing options to ensure compliance with local regulations.

      1. Tell us what you’re looking for

      Call us to discuss your requirements & customisation options, including space, budget and must-haves. It’s helpful to know where the frame will be built, so we’ll ask you for photos of the site and basic dimensions. In some cases, we come out for a site visit.

      2. We’ll get it on paper

      Our design team use your information to prepare a 3D drawing (to scale), showing you exactly what it would look like in the area. For transparency, we also provide a detailed breakdown of all costs, so you know exactly what you are paying for but also how changes can affect the overall project value. Our design service is entirely free and obligation-free. If you decide to leave us after this stage, we promise to have no hard feelings.

      3. You can amend or approve

      You can ask us to make as many changes to the design as you like, until you’re happy. Once a final design is agreed, we ask for a deposit so we can get our manufacturing team to work.

      4. We build it

      Once you sign off the design, our team in Gloucestershire will start building your personalised playground by hand.

      5. We install it

      We offer completely hassle-free installation with our fully trained, in-house installation team. We agree a date to come and commence the build. In most cases, assembly involves a 3-man team, and it takes around 2/3 days for a single frame set.

      6. You enjoy it

      Our frames are built using commercial grade timber and high-quality accessories, as we believe that outdoor playgrounds should only be purchased once. We therefore build them to be safe, sturdy, and reliable, suitable for younger and older kids alike, so they can be enjoyed for many years to come.
