KOMPAN understands that getting children active and developing life skills is a core component of play, which is why they have released their new ELEMENTS™ range, a collection that has been specifically designed and tested for that very purpose.
KOMPAN’s new ELEMENTS™ range is all about getting children active and developing vital life skills through physical play. Play activities that “tickle-the-stomach” while also benefiting development are the greatest motivators of physical play.
The new ELEMENTS™ range is divided into three age groups, with each group featuring their own play universe, loaded with age-appropriate play activities: TOTS (1-4), GROW (2-6) and GO (6-12).
ELEMENTS™ TOTS and GROW contain responsive, agile and exploratory play solutions that shape a safe and active play universe that encourages the children to expand their horizons, get active and develop and improve skills as they play.
Besides getting children active, ELEMENTS™ GO is designed to stimulate children’s creativity, innovative thinking and problem-solving skills through a concept KOMPAN dubs 'Play360'. The curved panels in this range facilitate climbing on the outside of the structure, as well as ample space for quieter play in the interior.
A structure from the ELEMENTS™ range can help you create a unique aesthetic addition to your playspace. The organic shapes, bright colours and open-ended design send a warm but non-traditional invitation to play that draws children from all around.
ELEMENTS™ TOTS stimulates and encourages physical activity for the little ones. Interactive elements and play event events that 'tickle the stomach' allow toddlers to explore the world around them, be active and develop important skills.
The ELEMENTS™ GROW range allows for agile and challenging rough-and-tumble play. The GROW range is one of the first in the industry to cater for bouncing play and offers a great variation in bouncing, fun-loving play features.
ELEMENTS™ GO is the ultimate play and activity kick-starter for school-aged children. Safe, challenging play features encourage kids to play and be physically active for long periods. The range's thoughtful design makes little players want to come back again and again.
PLAY FOR ALL
New ELEMENTS™ offers play for all abilities. A variety of ground-level activities allow all users to access the structures and play in a multitude of ways. Ramped solutions allow children in wheelchairs to play alongside friends. The extra width on the ramps makes room for a caregiver to accompany the child.
PLAY IT YOUR WAY
ELEMENTS™ has been designed with a truly flexible play framework that allows for a large degree of customisation and flexibility.
The intelligent ELEMENTS™ play system facilitates additions, removals and other changes to play activities, materials, construction options and colour schemes to make it fit into any environment or idea.
TESTED AND APPROVED PLAY VALUE
Who are the real experts when it comes to playing? Kids of course!
As they do when any new product is developed, the KOMPAN Play Institute has tested the new ELEMENTS™ play features with children.

"Thrill and ‘tickling-in-the-stomach’ are the greatest motivators of physical play,” said Jeanette Fich Jespersen, Head of KOMPAN Play Institute. “New elements™ is designed to give children just that and get them active through thrilling responsive play events – from the youngest to the oldest."
BUILT TO LAST
The New ELEMENTS™ series is designed using highly vandalism-resistant and durable materials that will make your playground last and look good for a lifetime.
All posts are galvanised and powder coated making them highly resistant to corrosion. The panels and roofs have a high level of UV-stabilisation making them resistant to fading in the sun. The platform decks are made of 18 mm thick high-pressure laminate supported by an aluminium frame, which means they're very resistant to wear and tear. All ropes are steel reinforced and highly vandalism-resistant, and are impossible to wear through.
