Adaptable Climbing Frame

Customisable climbing structure

The concept provides a modular climbing set for young children to enable them to have their own customisable climbing structure that can be altered to produce many outcomes from the same initial set. The structure can then grow and be altered to adapt as the child grows and develops both their understanding of structures but also their physical abilities. Whilst it is important to create a fun and simple concept it is also important to ensure that the mechanisms and structure are safe and apply to the relevant standards. Presently many families have climbing frames in their garden but find that the frame is limited and they need to buy completely new ones to create new challenges for their growing child. This concept builds on clip mechanism technologies using a unique mechanism that negates the need for nuts and bolts making the building and rebuilding quick and simple.
