Why WillPlay is using timber-look aluminium in playgrounds

WillPlay’s timber-look aluminium posts and composite wood panels showcase its commitment to evoking natural aesthetics without sacrificing performance, durability, and environmental responsibility.

Timber-look aluminium: a strong yet appealing alternative

Timber-look aluminium encapsulates the cosy wooden appeal while leveraging the sturdy, low-maintenance advantages of Australian made marine-grade aluminium.

Unlike regular wood, timber-look aluminium resists weathering while avoiding splintering or decay, delivering resilient playground equipment in harsh coastal conditions.

This combination of natural charm and strength makes WillPlay’s timber-look aluminium an ideal choice for those seeking the timeless beauty of wood without the drawbacks.

Composite wood panels: striking a balance between aesthetics and durability

Matching the allure of natural wood, composite wood panels provide the beauty and warmth of timber boasting an inherent resistance to decay, pests, and moisture.

Low maintenance composite wood panels ensure the longevity of playground equipment, standing as a testament to WillPlay’s dedication to sustainable and responsible design.

Reduced maintenance costs and extended product life will appeal to asset managers, while keeping users engaged in a visually appealing setting.

Providing a lifetime structural warranty for all WillPlay’s play and fitness systems is testament to the company’s confidence in its premium material choices, including timber-look aluminium and composite wood panels.

These systems are designed with 100% recyclability in mind, ensuring a minimal environmental impact at the end of its asset life.

Australian-made – a symbol of quality and community building

This deliberate material choice captivatingly blends the allure of timber with the robustness of modern elements, reflecting the essence of nature in a strong, sustainable format.

The Treehouse range is more than a collection of playground equipment – it’s a testament to WillPlay’s dedication to crafting both safe, and environmentally friendly spaces that evoke lasting memories for children and communities.
