Environmental Information

UAC’s Playground equipment is ecologically sound. Our environment must be kept safe so we use recycled and/or recyclable material and environmentally friendly production techniques.

UAC believe that children should be at the heart of the debate about the environment in the same way that we believe in providing sustainable play equipment that cares for the environment.

Our timber range of playground equipment is manufactured from non toxic durable, quarter sawn, milled heartwood (e.g. oak, larch). All timber used has PEFC Certification, the world’s most significant certification for using environmentally friendly wood from controlled sources.

This range of play equipment is not pressure treated with heavy metals (brass, chrome …or arsenic!) in solution and therefore, does not need to be treated as chemical waste after its useful lifespan - So our non toxic heartwood equipment helps protect the environment by being sourced from controlled sources and in by its ability to be safely reprocessed at the end of its life.

For our metal playground equipment range, we promote the use of aluminium where possible – with its 50 year anti rust warranty these products have a long life expectancy – and can be fully recycled.
