Part of the appeal to families visiting theme and holiday parks is the provision of suitable sport and play equipment in a designated site to keep a wide age range of kids happily and healthily exercising. It’s important that such an area is a fun-filled and safe environment for youngsters of all ages to play and interact with others.
Wicksteed has been manufacturing and supplying playground equipment and working closely with the leisure industry for over 90 years and understands what children want from their play areas. Wicksteed offers exciting and challenging playground equipment and impact-absorbing surfacing, as well as sports equipment and outdoor adult fitness equipment.
Wicksteed can also offer a bespoke product design service and can create playground designs and surfacings to specific themes, which may suit the individual requirements of leisure and holiday parks. Themes are limited only by our joint imaginations!
With unsurpassed knowledge and understanding of all that play encompasses and over 90 years’ of experience in play design to draw on, Wicksteed has the solution for every element of play provision with our award-winning designs, customer service and environmental policy. We can work with Architects and Designers in order to incorporate their specific ideas for playground and product designs and can incorporate original landscaping to provide the complete package.
Our in-house design facility is the most advanced in the industry and we are able to provide virtual reality-style design presentations for local authority projects, together with animated presentations for certain projects.
Extensive after sales service
Wicksteed provides an extensive after sales customer care programme including inspection, maintenance and long-term technical support and advice.
Playground landscaping and the incorporation of natural features and planting is an important part of Wicksteed’s playground designs. Wicksteed’s own landscape designers – part of the 7-strong design team – will ensure that natural forms are incorporated into the play area design and existing ones are enhanced.
Wicksteed has 5 Contract Managers, headed by an Installation Manager. These personnel have all been fully trained in Health and Safety, CDM Regulations, etc. and will project manage all installations to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
Quality of manufacture & guarantees
As Wicksteed manufactures its own equipment under its BS EN ISO 9001:2000 quality registration, the company is able to strictly monitor and control quality and costs, as well as giving our customers the ability to choose their own colour schemes and request adjustments to standard designs.
We endeavour to supply spares for equipment which is at least 20 years old.
