Shelter on a platform with climbing wall (PC080699)
Specification of this Shelter on a platform with climbing wall
Floor - Raised on a Platform
Your playhouse comes with a solid floor, it is constructed using 25mm x 50mmm tanolised bearers supporting an 18mm wbp external grade plywood floor: this is treated on the upper side using sadolin classic timber protection. Sandwiched between the bearers and plywood is a damp proof membrane that then wraps around the edge and sits under the playhouse side. The membrane is there to stop moisture coming up. A soft floor is fitted to the ground floor of the playhouse once finished - this floor can be removed easily for cleaning. This is then sited on to a decking platform.
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 - Wood Shingles
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 two layers of base waterproof membrane and then wooden cedar shingles, using galvanised staples. The felt is wrapped over the front and back and sealed behind the facia board; there is also a ridge board fitted along the top ridge, these boards can be either straight or shaped.
Doors - Standard
All our doors are built with safety as a paramount concern. All are a special non-trap design, using piano hinge down the whole length of the door, and then a rebate on the inside of the hinged side. When the door is in the closed position there is a taper between the door and frame, so should little fingers be left in the way they will not be pinched. Doors are held closed with heavy duty magnets; this prevents a child getting locked in accidentally. The cut out window is glazed with unbreakable 2mm polycarbonate sheet. Doors have a knob inside and out.
Other - External Staircase
All staircases are built at an angle of 45 degrees with no more than 180mm between treads: they are built using tanolised timber with grooved decking used for the treads. All staircases above 300mm have balustrade rails on the side.
