Corocord® Play Equipment                                                                                                                                             unites the characteristics and advantages of many different pieces of play and sports equipment.

 Children are offered great space in which to exercise themselves, live out their fantasies, train their                   spatial cognitive abilities and to  learn how to handle height without danger.

The structures are filigree and reflect technological development right from the solid to the delicate. This filigree characteristic signals economy and efficiency – and thus progress. 

Rope-work constructions are easily integrated into the environment: they are transparent, and thus                      fit into the picture of the landscape.

All materials, whether natural or artificial, possess specific characteristics, which one must know in                  order to be able to use them.

New materials as well as new structural systems not automatically result in superiority.

To reach an improvement the corret attitude towards them is crucial.

The worth of every material is dependent on the competence of its user.

Product Introduction

2000                                                                                                                                                                                              Play and Climbing NetsTM                                                                                                                                                                                                                           A single rope is a filigree component in the construction. It does not convey a shape, and is quite                      difficult to distinguish spatially.Not until a number of ropes are arranged together either alongside                        one another or crosswise are they recognized as constructions taking up a specific space. A primary requirement for this is an orderly and comprehensible rope structure.In the product group “Play and             Climbing Nets” all types of flat nets are included. In combination with membranes, jumping and resting          areas are created.Many new play ideas realized by Corocord in co-operation with planning offices are            included here.

        

3000                                                                                                                                                                      SpacenetsTM                                                                                                                                                                                                              The Spacenets has become an important component of the world of experience for children. Children                are always keen to climb, to keep a lookout, to find out what it’s like “up there”, to subject their body to oscillations, of which they themselves can set the frequency. The Spacenet becomes a watchtower ,                   the crow’s nest on a pirate ship, an arena for the imagination. Super games of tag can be played in the spacious net. It is suited to any number of role plays. Trampolining is possible with tightly tensioned               ropes, or one can climb hand-over-hand, or perform a range of gymnastic exercises. Additionally built in houses, sitting and resting areas, tensioned trampoline membranes and wobbly bridges are an attraction        for young and old alike. By combining several spacenets a never ending variety of new, fascinating and transparent ropes structures can be created.

              

4000                                                                                                                                                                                                Octa NetsTM                                                                                                                                                                                   Octa Nets represent a variation on the Spacenet theme. The pyramid structure is here doubled in                  downward direction; the tip of the lower pyramid disappears into the ground.The first Octa Nets were                    erected by Conrad Roland at the International Garden Show IGA 1971 in Hamburg. A Small Four Mast                   Octa Net was subsequently shown as an example of “Kunst am Bau” (Artistic Construction) in Munich. Corocord was invited to display a Large Octa Net at the special exhibition “Exempla’95 – Das Handwek          und die Metropolen” (The Craft Professions and the Metropolises) in Munich. Today, these fascinating spacenets are to be seen in many different places, for example in the “Hall of Science” in New York.

         

5000                                                                                                                                                                                         Orion SpacenetsTM                                                                                                                                                               Orion Spacenets are extensive, externally suspended spacenets with oscillating membrane platforms.               The first spacenets of this type were presented at the Federal Garden Show ( BUGA) in Dusseldorf in                   1987. They offer generous space for hopping, jumping and climbing. The membranes have also a very              good trampoline effect. The Eurythmos received an award from the “ Design Center Stuttgart”. Its delicate, transparent form is reminiscent of a tent construction. This was also the reason behind the selection of              this equipment for the playground in front of London’s “Millennium Dome”.

         

6000                                                                                                                                                                                  Corocord BridgeTM                                                                                                                                                                      From the very first, bridges were built as a method of joining two separate areas. Where our play bridges            are concerned, this is done in a particularly original fashion. Swinging Rope Net Bridges train one’s coordination and sense of balance. Suspension Bridges enable one to experience differences in height,              and also are an invitation to races.

          

Safety
Corocord equipment has been tested and accepted by the TUV PRODUCT SERVICE ( German Safety Standards Commission ) according to EN 1176.In the rope nets, children can always find a hand-hold                 in the regularly-arranged mesh. The individual ropes in the rope net are flexibly anchored, and break a        possible fall. In the rope pyramid structures, the arrangement of regular, interlocking meshes permits equipment of considerable height , and despite this, only short distances in case of  a fall. Height           can thus be experience without danger.
