Fixed Gymnastic Equipment
A colourful and robust Climbing Frame suitable for use in Key Stage 1 and 2 activities.
It is constructed with 32mm dia tubular steel within a 50 x 25 box section frame, the powder coated finish providing wear and scratch resistance.
The frame can be used in both ‘T’ and ‘Y’ configurations, and is braced by two steel ladders for extra stability.
Each gate measures 2750mm high x 1830mm wide.
Special sizes can be made to order.
When folded against the wall the frame occupies an area of 2m wide x 240mm deep x 2.75m high.
The frame is supplied with gates in green, orange and purple, with purple ladders. Special colours can be supplied to order.
Hinged booms are now the most popular and versatile arrangement in gymnasia, due to the generally high roof space in modern buildings. Our units are easily wheeled into position on non-marking tyred wheels and rigidly held by simply operated wall mounted straining wires. A braced top steel section also helps to ensure maximum stability during use.
Increasingly popular units, especially where an unsuitable roof structure prohibits the use of an overhead trackway. The combination of a diagonally braced steel double top rail – unless the roof height is restrictive – and wire-bracing to the wall, offers exceptional stability and rigidity during use. Manufactured in tough powder-coated steel, the hinged rope frames store flat against the wall when not in use.
A quintessential element in gymnasia, and familiar to generations of gymnasts, Niels Larsen wall bars are featured in countless installations, both in the UK and overseas. Traditionally wall bars are wall mounted at the top and floor mounted at the base but the more popular ‘hygienic’ arrangement provides for wall mounting at both the top and bottom so allowing free access beneath the installation for cleaning and access. Although the wall bars are supplied as single section units, they can be installed in any multiples desired. All necessary fittings for assembly such as steel angle brackets and beech wall pads are included. Wall Fixings not provided.
Finest quality 47mm diameter hardwood barre. Please contact our Sales Office for installation details etc.
Climbing frames are one of the most important and versatile items of equipment in the modern gymnasium and sportshall. The Niels Larsen range of climbing frames offers an extremely wide choice of activities for all ages and levels of ability. Our standard units are 2.74m (9’) wide and 3.05m (10’) high, but ‘bespoke’ sizes are easily accommodated to suit individual sites and user requirements. These timber units can be fitted with traditional oval timber bars, or brightly painted ‘colour coded’ steel bars. To ensure safety and stability, each frame is wire braced and also fitted with a rigid connecting link, as appropriate.
Spectrum (Y-Hinged) Frames are perhaps the best option for modern junior gymnasia, and as such, are now one of our most popular product ranges. The space-saving Y configuration allows the frame to be used in quite small areas to full advantage. All three sections can be used simultaneously for a great variety of movement and exercise, and the unit can be easily opened and closed, even by quite small children. When stored, the unit only requires a relatively small wall area.
Double Hinged Frames are permanently connected and braced by a rigid bar that provides a unit of exceptional stability. This rigid bar also offers the possibility of attaching additional rope ladders, climbing ropes etc.
Single Hinged Frames are the simplest units in the range, and are ideal for the low cost provision of climbing and movement activities.
Fold Over Frames are wire-braced to offer the same range of activities as the Double Hinged Frames, but can be used where wall space is restricted. Not illustrated.
Niels Larsen Climbing Frames have been re-designed to ease the process of selection and installation. In conjunction with our Price List, simply select your Climbing Frame by following these simple guidelines:
1. Choose the type of frame required. Does a single, double, foldover or Y-shaped (Spectrum) frame best suit your needs? You will need a Fixing Master Kit for the type of frame chosen. Our kits contain everything that is needed for installation in most situations.
2. Select the frame design(s) requires, and decide whether you prefer traditional oval timber bars or ‘colour coded’ round steel bars. Our most popular frame designs are illustrated. It is important that, within a particular unit, the combination of frame designs are appropriate for the ages and abilities of the users.
3. Check whether the site chosen requires the use of projection brackets or other non-standard fitments.
4. Specify those items of portable equipment to be used in conjunction with your climbing frame. These may include lightweight alloy poles and ladders, agility planks, and balance benches.
The ActivTower is a unique system that is brightly coloured and designed with children in mind. The system focuses on a range of gymnastic movements; balance, weight transfer, traveling, flight and shape.
The ActivTower is designed to work with Gym Time equipment and also traditional linking equipment.
The ActivTower has been designed and manufactured by Niels Larsen, a company with over 100 years experience of manufacturing exceptional quality gymnastics equipment.
An exciting addition to the Gym Time range, the Gym Centre consists of three frames each with a different range of activities. The frames are joined together and open out into a ‘Y’ configuration to present a multitude of activity and linking possibilities. At the end of the lesson the Gym Centre is easily folded away against the wall. The three frames folding one on top of another means that only a small wall space is needed.
Frame One is a rope frame and is fixed directly to the gym wall for extra rigidity. It features the same activities that are found on larger more expensive rope frames but at a comfortable height for younger children. The frame is supplied complete with two hemp climbing ropes (one fitted with turks head knots) and a climbing ladder.
Frame Two is a conventional style climbing frame featuring horizontal bars. The curved design makes it possible for children to start climbing at a low height to begin with, climbing higher as they gain confidence.
Frame Three is an in and out frame which introduces children to a more free style climbing experience which also includes different shapes and textures.
All three frames are less than 2m high and like all the products in the Gym Time range are ergonomically designed to suit younger children.
The Gym Centre is equally suitable for use with traditional gymnastic equipment or other elements of the Gym Time range such as bench, ladder, scramble net etc.
Space requirements for Gym Centre fixed in a ‘Y’ configuration: 3.0m from wall x 3.5m wide.
A further 2.0m circulation area around the equipment is recommended.
