Cadishead Primary School
A Case Study on the Installation of our Outdoor Gym Equipment
CADISHEAD PRIMARY SCHOOL
Cadishead Primary School were looking for an Outdoor Fitness area to help promote physical activity during breaks and lunch times, as well as being used for outdoor learning purposes to help enhance PE lessons.
The project was a unique case as they required an outdoor fitness area that would fit within a very narrow space.
Firstly, ground anchors were concreted into position and left to harden. The tarmacadam (an extremely hard wearing and durable surface option) was then laid to repair the area where the equipment was bolted down into place. We then made sure that all the equipment was precisely placed, in order to meet safety zone requirements. Finally, after one final clean and inspection a training session was held to instruct teachers and pupils on how to safely and correctly use their new outdoor fitness equipment.
The equipment that was installed was part of our children’s outdoor fitness equipment range a mixture of single and multiple user pieces of equipment. Multiple user pieces of equipment allow children to develop their communication and social skills whilst still helping to promote a fit and healthy lifestyle. Multiple user equipment installed at Cadishead Primary School include the Children’s Double Slalom Skier and the Children’s Double Health Walker. The Children’s Double Health Walker is perfect for children as it allows them to set their own pace whilst walking with a friend. Walking is also a great low impact cardiovascular exercise and is therefore suitable for children of any age and any ability. Other equipment installed include the Children’s Horse Rider and the Children’s Sky Stepper.
All together the equipment that was installed will give the children a full body cardiovascular and strength workout.

From our first contact we received a very quick response and a site visit was booked in. Quote was received within a few days and Installation went well without any disruptions, The team being accommodating to the school’s needs, friendly and efficient, leaving us with a quality product ready to use! I would highly recommend them to other schools thinking of installing outdoor fitness equipment”
