A creative vertical playground for kids of all ages.
Horse-Box is a very eye-catching vertical play structure ideal to be placed at shopping mall atriums, retail streets, lobbies, playgrounds, schoolyards or even at your own home yard. It’s easy and fast to install due to the use of standardized cubic modules that are directly stacked on top of each other.
Horse-Box comes fully equipped for night mode, with spotlights in each box, enabling safe night play, besides other decorative lights at the horse’s head to make it eye-catching for kids.
It has been designed based upon our own internal research on Kids Play Routes. As a result of this research, we have developed in this product 3 different playful courses of challenging activities that kids should follow and overcome successfully.
Along the path they encounter play activities with different levels of complexity according to different age groups, which, as evidenced by our research on learning through play, help kids developing several motoric and cognitive skills.
Through the use of cubic modules, this product defines a climbable structure with spaces at different heights from which kids can slide down through either a spiral slide (for bigger kids from 6-14 years old) that mimics the horse tail, or a straight slide (for smaller kids from 3-6 years old).
Besides climbable surfaces & slides, the object not only includes many other physically challenging functions such as a tunnel, a shaking bridge, or hanging balls & pipes as obstacles to be crossed; but also, simpler interactive games in vertical & horizontal surfaces, like a tic-tac-toe, turning balls, or a musical instrument; all packed together in a single multifunctional playful object to stimulate kids’ imagination and cognitive skills through play.
The Play Routes combine the activities taking into consideration different factors, balancing brain and physical activities and using different parts of the body in order to improve muscle strength and balance.
The main inner structure is stainless steel frames and the finishing material is made with stainless steel sheets with a layer of fluorocarbon paint. Also all the horizontal surfaces are covered with EPDM to absorb the impact.
Some of the features and equipment on top are done with fiberglass. It occupies a surface of 25 m2 in a perfectly square footprint of 5×5 meters (excluding the protruding slides) and the maximum height of this equipment is 6900 mm.
The colors, play features and details of this project can be customized depending on the needs of the client and conditions of the site. The modifications will be done upon request.
