Sauerland Spielgeräte

About us

Our Team consists of around 100 employees. Playground equipment has been our business since 1987.

We are a family-run medium-sized company. We make almost all of the products we supply in our own factory in Niederntudorf (North Rhine-Westphalia). Besides manufacturing apparatus made of wood, for which we mainly use native Douglas fir, we also produce steel and melamine playground equipment. We also supply our own-brand impact-absorbent surfacing “Floorgran” to complete our portfolio.

We are committed to preserving the environment, which is why most of our products are made of wood – the classic renewable resource. The timber we process comes mainly from local sustainable forestry, and nothing is wasted: even offcuts, chips and sawdust are used as fuel for the generation of thermal energy.


Qualität

We are a member of the DIN Standards Committee for Playground Equipment (NA 112 AA) and are also actively involved in developing the DIN EN 1176 / 77 standard.

We guarantee that all of our playground equipment is manufactured and tested in accordance with the requirements of standard DIN EN 1176 and has been granted a corresponding “Certified Safety” (GS) certificate (German: GS = Geprüfte Sicherheit).

If required, we can also organize TÜV Inspection and Approval of individually-planned special facilities. Final inspection and approval will take place at the installation site.

Playtime should be fun and safe!


Planning

Our in-house designers use state-of-the-art 3D planning software to put your ideas and requirements into practice, giving you an overview of the design, function, play value and safety of the equipment even before we start to build it.


Service

When you contact us, you only have to deal with a single advisor who looks after everything related with your play apparatus: from planning and manufacture right down to assembly and safety inspection of the finished product.

In addition to being certified Experts for Playground Safety under the provisions of standard DIN EN 1176/77, all our sales staff and master craftsmen take part in regular basic and advanced training courses on all aspects of playground safety.


Safety

Whenever children are involved, the safety of the construction is top priority. With this principle in mind, we guarantee that the requirements set out in standard EN 1176/77 are met right from the very start of planning.

You have our guarantee that all our playground equipment has been tested to standard EN 1176/77 and that every installation has its own TÜV technical inspection certificate. We organize TÜV testing and certification of custom-built apparatus and combinations on our factory premises or at your site.

Materials

Wood

As our timber is sourced directly from German forests, its traceability is assured and the ecological, social and economic impact of its forestry stewardship can be closely monitored.

We only use timber from PEFC / FSC certified forests.​


Steel

Another of our strengths is the construction of playground equipment made of hot-dip galvanized steel and V2A stainless steel. We use the materials alone or in combination to make anything from simple swings to roundabouts, climbing frames or slides.

Our speciality is the 3-layer, low-noise construction of our slide surfaces, which also allows the individual replacement of slide sections in the event of damage.


Melamine

Our melamine resin boards make playtime colourful! The colour layer is durable, too, as it is protected against wear and tear by the tough, waterproof outer laminate.


Impact-absorbing tiles

are manufactured by special process to tolerances of under 1 %, so they offer a constantly high level of quality, high scuff resistance, excellent water permeability and slip-resistant properties.

Optimal impact energy absorption for critical fall heights of up to 3 metres (HIC) in accordance with standard EN 1177.
