We design our products to be used universally and to accommodate activities that are relevant for all children. We offer both timeless classics and out-of-this-world innovation – making it easy to choose a unique solution that will stimulate curiosity, excitement and child-development.
The KOMPAN Design Studio focuses entirely on creating new, innovative play structures that are tailor made for our customers. This special task force consists of engineers, landscape architects and other specialists with extensive experience within the industry.

It is still, of course, covered by our lifetime warranty.
When designed to really promote child development, playgrounds can significantly improve children’s health, learning and social interaction. The feeling of pride a child gets from achieving a challenging task on the playground spills over into the classroom and into their life. At KOMPAN we design products to make play and learning go hand in hand. It is the foundation for age-appropriate learning and development.
Life skills, whether they are motor skills, sensory skills, social skills, emotional skills or creative skills, are all learned voluntarily and in a fun way in quality playgrounds. And so are cognitive skills. Active Living Research shows that even when replacing some academic activity with outdoor activity and play, children end up with higher average grades and better classroom behavior.
Our products are designed to address the key areas of child development and are able to supplement specific curriculum requirements. We can blend a suitable selection of products for an exciting, challenging and fun playground solution.

Many cities successfully use play spaces to provide a unique, playful framework for social inclusion and interaction. Inclusive play spaces have proven to be an effective diversion for crime and vandalism. They unite people in play and they include all abilities in a social context.
Our products are designed to require the least possible maintenance, by using the highest quality materials available and best possible durability. In our experience, this increases the playground’s life considerably and acts as a strong defense against potential vandalism.
