Specification of this Play Castle
Floor - Decking
Decking can be laid at ground level either as a floor for a play-frame, a sub base for a playhouse or to give an additional play area. The decking boards are good quality grooved redwood boards that are pressure treated. The deck boards are screwed to pressure treated 50mm x 100mm timber bearers which in turn sit on bricks placed at ground level. A weed prevention membrane is fitted below the decking to ensure that there is no plant growth up through the boards. If it is being used as a sub-base or play area a skirt is fitted to match to deck.
Decking can be painted with a non slip rubberised paint, please ask for details.
Sides - Playframe
The playframe sides are built to last; This type of construction is used for open buildings that are not weatherproof. Initially a framework is built using 50mm x 38mm timber with rounded edges. To this we fix using galvanised brads, good quality redwood shiplap timber, this makes the side panels. These panels are then sanded and treated both inside and outside using two coats of Sadolin wood preservative. These are then fitted together on site.
Roof - Felted
The roof is built to withstand the English climate; 75mm x 50mm bearers are put across from side to side. Screwed to these bearers is 12mm external quality plywood covered with a base layer of waterproof membrane and then a top layer of 38kg mineral felt, using stainless steel staples. The felt is wrapped over the front and back and sealed behind the facia board.
