This project is one of our favourites :) We were contacted in September 2016 with an idea to create a 7m tower which would stand as the centre piece of a new Jungle Themed Playground in Western Australia in a Stockland development at Whiteman Edge, Brabham. The architects were open to ideas and suggestions as to how we could create the central tower which needed to prevent access on the outside of the net and also avoid falling down through the middle. A number of iterations were modelled and eventually a design was approved which used polished stainless steel rings with integrated rubber landing platforms on three levels. Two access ports are included in the design to enable access from ground level and also from a mid level. The net fabrication was intense but our highly skilled team created the support rings, fabricated the nets and the fit was millimetre perfect.
Along with the central tower we also designed some bridging elements using our large diameter ‘Jungle Rope.’ The end caps on this were also polished stainless steel. Net elements from ground up to various decks were part of our scope and all the fittings were supplied for the local fabricator to include in their structural work. It all went together really well and as can be seen from the images, the final result is an absolute cracker.
