Safety is the main consideration and priority at the heart of the Action climbing frame designs. From the substantial timber used for the frames, through to the accessories and fixings. All components are CE marked and meet EN71 European specifications for residential children's play equipment.
Action climbing frames are made from wood, one of the most environmentally friendly materials available. The wood used for the frames is selected top grade pine from forests approved and managed under the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification scheme (PEFC).Management of these forests involves protection of the environment, respect for the social rights of local communities, forest workers and economic viability.
The use of man-made materials in these climbing frames is limited wherever possible. Wooden seats, roofs, bridges, tunnels and polyhemp ropes are used on all the Action frames. The monkey bars, where used are made from high quality ASH hardwood rungs for non-slip use, all year round. All necessary fittings, fasteners, and ropes are included and are either galvanized or stainless steel to prevent rust and corrosion. All of the galvanized swing hangers have low noise nylon bearings and bolt through the swing arm to ensure their smooth use and durability. The UV ray resistant plastic material used for slides presents no danger of toxicity, so is safe for the duration of its life.
Before purchasing and installing your action climbing frame, measure your garden carefully. Add an additional unobstructed perimeter of 1.5m around the frame for safety and access with a clear zone of 2.5m in front and behind any swings and 2m from any boundary of your property. Action climbing frames are designed to be dug 30cm into the ground.
Climbing frames are large items and we recommend two or more people for installation. A full set of instructions, fixings, along with a drill bit for preparing screw holes are also included with each Action play unit.
Build times are set out in the specifications on each individual Action frame although these are estimates and assume a reasonably level and clear area as well as a certain amount of skill in the installer!
As a UK-wide shop, Big Game Hunter's Climbing Frame Shop cannot arrange professional installation for your climbing frame - but would recommend seeking out someone local to you if you require specialist help. It is also quite common for people to use local builders, carpenters, or general DIY or gardening services so it would be worthwhile getting a quote from a variety of sources.
Substantial 70mm x 70mm timber sections are used for the Action climbing frames and 70mm x 90mm timber is used for the Action swing arms. The seasoned timber is machined, planed smooth with rounded edges and finished within 1mm tolerances. All fixing holes and nut recesses are pre-drilled, although occasionally they will need re-drilling to ensure they are deep enough. The timber is pressure treated to preserve its life, using a non- toxic chromium/cadmium/arsenic (CCA) free solution approved for children's playground equipment.
All Action Frames come with an impressive 10 year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on all timber sections and a 2 year guarantee against technical faults and manufacturing defects. All ropes, accessories and slides are guaranteed for 1 year subject to correct installation and normal domestic use.

Action used high pressure treated timbers, and these frames are made to a high specification with Pine. There are many cheaper brands available now but on closer inspection, the timber quality and size of frame is almost always a few grades or sizes lower than the Action frames. Many are made from Chinese Fir which is not as hard wearing as pine and will not last the elements in the UK for as long.
