The seasoned timber used on all Action Modular Climbing Frames is machined, planed smooth with rounded edges and finished with 1mm tolerances. All fixing holes and nut recesses are pre-drilled. The Timber is pressure treated to preserve its life, using a non-toxic chromium/ cadmium/ arsenic (CCA) free solution which is approved for childrens’s playground equiptment.

Wood is a natural product and as such i ssubject to the influence of the moisture content of the air and ground. Sometimes cracks or splits may appear, but this will not result in weakening of the structural stability. These cracks and splits are minimized by the machining in to rectangular sections and are more common in round section timber. Knots and grain variations are a normal component of all timber products.
