 MODULAR SYSTEM, HOW DOES IT WORK?

Jungle Gym is a modular system, where you can combine towers and modules in different ways to create your dream climbing frame.

You can order just a tower, that includes the slide, or combine one tower and one or more modules and accessories, or join various towers using the bridge link or the net link, and add more fun with the range of modules such as bridge module, climb module, playhouse module, swing module, picnic or mini market modules, for example. Some of the Accessories sometimes come included with the tower, so check this before ordering additional ones, they create more imaginative play (telescope, steering wheel, fun phone, periscope etc).

If you don't require a slide and would like to have a fireman's pole instead, this is possible, please contact us for a price.

The Playground Planner will help you see clearly which modules attach to which tower, but please contact us to check your design if you are unsure.

VIEW PLAYGROUND PLANNER

There is a planner on Jungle Gym's website which is very useful, HOWEVER, please note that this works only for one module at the time. More than one module can be attached to some towers, and you cannot see this in that planner. Please contact us for advice.

Please visit our Combos page to see some combinations that we have created for other customers. Some combos are ready to click and buy, but because there are so many options, not all of them are listed. Please contact us for prices and to customise your own, or add the products separately to your basket.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN OUR SUPPLY:

We supply the timber CUT TO LENGTH (as per the cutting list in the instruction booklet) for towers and all the modules,  all of the hardware and the slide, in fact everything you need for a very satisfying weekend project.  Please note that there is a very small amount of cutting you will have to do while building the climbing frame, a few pieces in the whole frame.

   The Jungle Gym kit comes in a box, and includes everything that is not timber that you will need to construct      your tower, such as fixings, drill bits, brackets, handgrips, bolt caps, nets to cover the sandpit, membrane for the  bottom of the sandpit, safety features like the safety ball, ground anchors and the bumper pads, spirit level and sandpad.

These play sets are designed to be a DIY job and are supplied with full instructions, but we can also recommend our team of installers to fit it for you.

While building the climbing frame, you will have to drill the timber, as the pieces are NOT pre-drilled.

You will need the following tools: Electric drill, hammer, saw, tape measure and pencil. 

Please look at our Building Tips for help.

 

TIMBER: Our timber is pressure treated softwood. It comes with 10 year anti-rot and insect infestation warranty and comes exclusively from areas with a responsible forest management policy (FSC). It is smooth planed with chamfered edges for increased safety and to reduce splintering. For more information click on Jungle Gym FAQs above.

Recommended age range: 3 - 10 years.

Please note this range of climbing frames is not suitable for commercial use, in Schools, Nurseries, Pubs, Playgrounds, etc. To see the available ranges for this use, visit our commercial section

INSTALLATION SERVICE:

We can supply a quote for installation of the Jungle Gym climbing frames in Mainland UK (normally not North Scotland). Our recommended installers are very experienced and know this range inside out. They follow the instructions and install the climbing frame concreting the ground anchors into the ground, unless you request otherwise.

Please email or phone us with your choice of climbing frame and your postcode and we can give you an accurate quote. Prices start at around £ 250.00 but we need to quote each case in particular. The price depends on the towers/modules to build and the location. Big combos can cost around £ 700 to install. The fee is payable directly to the installers.

Installation quotes are for leveled gardens and for equipment to be installed on grass. The installation price does NOT include groundworks but includes concreting the climbing frame into the ground, as per the instructions. We can also quote for safety surface and its installation.

Please note that the climbing frame is delivered first, and we kindly ask customers to check that all the timber is present and in good condition, checking with the cutting list provided in the kit BEFORE THE INSTALLERS ARRIVE FOR INSTALLATION. This is to avoid the installers having to return to site if there is something missing that prevents them from finishing the job, this will incur extra cost.
