Inspection, Maintenance, Repairs, and Refurbishments.
KOMPAN inspected the piece of equipment and found that the slide had corroded at the fixing point as it entered the ground.
This particular piece of equipment was nearly 20 years old and had been extremely well used. The KOMPAN inspector then advised the client on the best course of action, removed the slide, and boarded up the entry access point so that children could not fall out of the opening on to the surface. The client did not have monies to repair the well used item of equipment, so KOMPAN were then asked to provide a quote to replace the slide using one purchased from the original equipment manufacturer.
The client was shocked at the cost of new equipment and installation, so KOMPAN decided to look into this further and come back to the client with a cost-effective solution.
KOMPAN suggested retrofitting one of our own slides to the other manufacturer’s unit, saving the client around £2,500. The retrofit was carried out by an approved annual inspector with many years of compliance experience.
Location: Notting Hill, London
Date of Installation: February 2021

Approx. Saving: £2,500
“The multi play slide had reached the end of its life. KOMPAN approached the original manufacturer of the slide and provided a price for a replacement slide which was unfortunately outside of our budget. KOMPAN then provided a solution by retrofitting a KOMPAN slide onto the play structure. This included a financial saving and we are very happy with the works undertaken by KOMPAN.”
