Log Tangle 2.1 incorporates two low triangular platforms. A flexform sling seat with small holes that may help children pull themselves up provides an accessible route from a transfer bench to the platform with a slide. A giant rope bridges to the second low platform which can also be accessed via a Log Jam extension with a net. Junior bannister rails adds another egress option. Magnetic beads can be pushed along a triangular rail above this second lower platform.
Log Tangles can be functionally linked with other Post and Rope elements, Log Piles or Log Jams (where available) or can be a stand-alone playground structure.
A giant rope and net add texture to this natural wood play structure for younger children. Log Tangle 2.1 has low levels but high challenge play opportunities that will help children build confidence and assess risk. Children find creative ways to slide, hang and suspend themselves on the junior steel bannister rails.
The net, in combination with the log beams and ropes, creates an open-ended challenge for little children. Which route should they take? The giant rope may not appear to be high off the ground but for small children, it will take courage and balance to cross between the platforms. Fine motor skills will develop as children manipulate the magnetic beads on the rail circuit, creating magic in motion.
Log Tangles are built primarily with hand-processed Robinia pseudoacacia logs sourced from Ontario and the Northeastern United States. Logs have a minimum diameter of 6 inches and anti-crack bolts are added to the ends of each log. The slide deck platforms are made of Accoya. The wood texture is a pleasant sensory experience. As a poor conductor of heat, the wood never feels too hot or too cold to bare skin.
All slides are available in either plastic (with colour choice options) or stainless steel. Black rubber flexform is used for the access climber (with cut out holes). Nets and ropes are nylon-wrapped steel core. The transfer bench is oak.
The square braided rope is made of a Hemp blend with inner stainless steel wire. Magnets are embedded in a round 5”/130mm bead.
Caution: Mild magnetic field. Can be ordered without magnets.
