The fun abounds team recently travelled to the Berliner Play Equipment Corporation in Greenville, South Carolina, and we reveled in the excitement of new products we will be sharing with our clients. Experiencing what our manufacturers develop first-hand is one of the greatest pleasures of working in this industry. It’s one thing to see a picture of a new product, but to personally see, touch, explore, climb, and just play brings about a sense of awe and wonder that makes us better at helping our clients.
One product we are elated to share with our customers is the Berliner IKO, which we hope will be the highlight of many upcoming projects! Some of the major advantages of IKO include no major planning, fast delivery and straightforward installation. All tension points are based around a central onepoint tension system to ensure that no technical connecting elements or rope loops are located in the play space.
IKO is unbeatable in terms of play value: Swinging, seesawing, climbing and rocking – this is fun, excitement and adventure combined. This piece complies with the safety standard for playground equipment (ASTM F1487) and is available in three different sizes.
Invented by Berliner founder Karl Kohler, the company’s website goes on to say “the IKO is structured around an Icosahedron – one of the five Platonic Solids discovered by the Greek Philosopher Plato in 360 B.C. It’s ironic that the Icosahedron is associated with the element of Water – symbolizing movement, flow, and change – as the IKO’s design allows freedom of expression and creativity, offering infinite options while playing and climbing within the spatial net.”
