Our materials

Unsere Materialien

Wood

We use only wood from sustainably managed forests. All solid woods are separated at the core and pressure-treated with chromate and boron-free wood preservative in accordance with DIN 68 800. Structural wood protection e.g. in the form of hot-dip galvanised steel post shoes or plastic covers in the area of the cap timbers greatly increases the life of our equipment and are something that we have taken for granted for many years.

Steel

As an alternative, we offer a lot of our equipment in a finish of hot-dip galvanised steel – on request also colour powder-coated. In contrast to other commercial playground equipment, in our original aukam equipment, we use much larger thicknesses and diameters for maximum durability, ease of maintenance, and maximum protection against vandalism.

Aluminium

The main features of our aluminium playground equipment are durability, no maintenance and the best possible corrosion protection. Post profiles developed specially for us with large material thicknesses and a static heavy-duty structure also ensure the decades of tried and tested quality of original aukam play equipment.

Material mix

The combination of high-quality materials and hand-made workmanship are a guarantee for durable, child-friendly equipment that is highly challenging.

Springers

For our springers we only use special springs corrosion-proofed in a special process with custom-fitting pads, finer protection and sturdy ground anchor made of hot-dip galvanised steel.

Swing bearings

Suspended swings are among the most stressed parts of a playground. For these we use highly durable swing joints made completely of stainless steel with maintenance-free bearings and built-in swivel.

PE panels

Polyethylene offers ideal properties for use in playground equipment. The material does not warp, is UV-resistant, maintenance-free, durable, robust, and 100% recyclable.
