With the modules connected, most playsets require more room and the options are limitless. This is why we wrote this blog about suitable climbing frames and to go into this by showing what play towers and optional modules are suitable for these kind of 'smal(ler)' gardens.

    Smal(ler) garden

    When a garden is exactly categorised as a small is garden, is hard to say. In addition to the dimensions of the frames, shape, landscaping and position are important factors in determining whether and where a climbing frame is placed. In many cases the climbing frame itself does fit in the garden, but it is important that the towers’ required play area is sufficient to guarantee safety. A good example is a swing set. This, in itself, takes up little space (270 x 270 cm), but once it is in use the required area takes quite far (730 x 270 cm). This means that in this particular case a lot of space is required for, in fact, a compact device.

    This blog, in particular, supplies an overview of Jungle Gym’s smallest playground equipment that require the least (play) area as they are actually more compact than the rest. Jungle Gym’s products are GS certified. For safety reasons, this certification requires that on each outer side of the climbing frame an additional space of minimum two meters must be available.
