MODERNISM, GEOMETRY AND FUNCTIONALITY
When rope play pioneer Conrad Roland was putting together his first play structures in 1971, he strived for a clear geometry. As an architect and collaborator of Mies van der Rohe, he was dedicated to modernism and functionality. Corocord Frame Nets still bear this spirit and adds timeless design to any playground. Just like the Spacenets, and the rope suspension bridge, these structures unfold a three-dimensional rope environment, in which a child can move freely in all directions. Furthermore, its compact design is an advantage under limited site conditions.
All kids want is fun and games, so geometric climbing frames are ideal for developing motor skills during physical play times. They are also a great way to embark on a group adventure with friends and siblings, and learn all-important life skills such as turn-taking and helping their peers.
The benefits of climbing frame nets
There are many benefits to installing a KOMPAN frame net in your playground. Here are the main things to know:
- Improve dexterity. Encouraging children to use hand, eye, and leg coordination to complete their climbing mission.
- Boost confidence. Children may start off on the lower parts of the frame net, but soon they will be challenging themselves as well as their friends to reach higher!
- Help to develop strength. It's no secret that climbing takes strength, and the more children do, the better their muscle memory will become, allowing them to be stronger and climb for longer.
- Encourage problem-solving. Children of different heights will have to find different paths to the same location, encouraging them to think outside the box.
- Strengthen social skills. Climbing frame nets are fun for all, especially those that encourage each other to do well, strengthening friendshipbonds and creating new ones.
