Seesaws


Tradition springs to life

The seesaw is one of the most iconic and classic pieces of playground equipment. From school playgrounds to community park playgrounds, children love the up and down ride of a seesaw. For centuries it was also one of the most basic piece of playground equipment: a plank balanced on a central support. Then along came the Springer. The Crazy Hen is not a seesaw, but KOMPAN’s design team instantly saw that the spring as a support had immense potential, especially if you employed more than one. The KOMPAN seesaw range uses two, three, and even four ground-embedded springs to create movement that is not confined to just up and down, much like a teeter totter, which can move horizontally and hold multiple seats.

KOMPAN offers quality seesaw playground equipment in different shapes and sizes, including traditional and springer seesaws. With our multi-user commercial seesaws, even more children can join the fun.

Interested in more freestanding play equipment? 


Despite being relatively simplistic, seesaw playground equipment provides important development skills. The thrill of rocking with a friend or in small groups advances social abilities while training muscles and overall motor skills. The KOMPAN range broadens the potential for activities and friendships since many children, and children of all abilities, can take participate together.

Outdoor play is one of the most valuable forms of development activity. The events of 2020 have underlined just what it means to be without it. If there are any positives from the global lockdown it is in the realization of what it means to get out and enjoy life and the importance of fresh air in terms of basic health. 

We have a large range of freestanding play equipment such as swings or slides - two additional outdoor playground essentials!

How robust are the springs that support the seesaw?

KOMPAN springs are engineered to make the movement of the seesaws optimal for many users. The unique designed PA6 brackets fixated with stainless steel hardware ensures high safety while playing. The springs are cleaned, primed and powder coated for high durability in any environment around the world.

 

Do the triangular three-seat versions need three children to work properly?

Effectively yes, but that is their strong point. The three-seat seesaw encourages broader friendships, avoiding the feeling of exclusion that ‘my best friend’ can often generate. There’s even a tempting position for a fourth child, standing on the central pivotal platform. 

 

What’s the warranty on a seesaw playground?

KOMPAN seesaw playground equipment is designed using a variety of materials. The EcoCoreTM HDPE plates and hot dip galvanized steel parts have a lifetime warranty against production defects. The spring systems and other movable parts have five-year warranties..
