Timber Playground Fencing

Easy to install protection for play areas

The Wooden Playtime Playground Fence is Jacksons' answer to providing comprehensive protection for children's play areas. Protection against dog fouling, vandalism and unwanted intrusion, coupled with ease of installation and maintenance-free durability with both the RoSPA approved fence and gates.

25 Year Guarantee

Playtime fencing has not just been popular (as the name indicates) in play areas, parks, nurseries and primary schools but has also been popular in residential situations also. As a front garden fence, its appearance being somewhat similar to a very robust version of palisade or picket fencing, and also as a perimeter fence in gardens where children play.

Playtime timber fencing is made from planed Jakcure® pressure treated timber which gives it a 25 year guarantee against rot and insect attack.

Highest quality finishes and colours of your choice

Playtime Timber Fencing is available in natural Jakcure® treatment finish, or Jakcure® treated with your personal choice of colour coatings, supplied in made-up panels with gravel boards for attaching to posts and rail connectors.

Matching self-closing gates are available with galvanised metal frames with polyester powder coating Green Ral 6005, timber clad.

Designed and manufactured to keep children safe

The design also ensures that no children can get either their necks or limbs trapped between pales or pale tops. The pales are sandwiched between two pairs of strong rails, and double posts hold gravel boards and rail connectors together.

All components are specifically designed with gently rounded edges that present no sharp surfaces for extra safety, this goes for the galvanised fixings as well as the timber.

Multi Coloured Playtime

Multi Coloured Metal Playtime

Next generation Metal Playtime is perfect for playgrounds and much more

These attractive panels differ from our standard metal Playtime fencing in several ways; the pales sit in a frame and do not go through the top and bottom rail. The pales pass through internal side of the rails and are fixed with a unique non-welded assembly system fitted with a rubber strip to prevent movement and rattling.

The panel rails are powder coated in green (RAL 6005). The pale configuration is as standard Metal Playtime with pales alternately coloured in blue (RAL 5010), yellow (RAL 1018) and red (RAL 3020) giving the fence a cheerful appearance suitable for playgrounds. (Other colours are also available). Gate can be supplied to match.

Please note: multi-coloured version is a bespoke order and is available at additional cost.

  • Rails: 60 x 40mm rectangular hollow section

Self-Closing Gate

Self-Closing Gate

RoSPA approved self-closing gate is ideal for schools and play areas

The intelligent design of this self-closing gate matches the new safer Anti-Trap bow Top fencing overleaf, not just in looks but with it's improved safety factors. The integral hinge at floor level ensures it always returns to a closed position every time it is opened. Limbs can not be trapped between the hanging stile and the posts, or the hoops above the top rail of the gate. The speed of the closing mechanism can be altered to between 1 - 60 seconds, and it also has a soft close feature to prevent slamming or trapping fingers. The gates are available with a high visibility coating to distinguish access in line with RoSPA recommendations. (Other colours are available).

Also available with a dog grid to prevent animal access to play areas.
