Our Team

    Have been with Tayplay since leaving university in 1996, it’s the only place I’d want to work, or is it the only place which will put up with me! An avid paragliding nut, I now have two young daughters who keep me busy instead. Spare time is taken up with cycling: commuting, local club rides & time trials; snowboarding when possible.

    New to Play & Leisure, after 15 years working in the Music Industry. Listen to anything loud & repetitive. I am generally found on the golf course, at a gig, or working my way through gardening jobs, eating homegrown produce from the vegetable plots. Jumped out of a plane once, and spent a fabulous 5 days building my own guitar from 5 blocks of wood.

Our design and technical team are on hand to advise communities, designers, engineers and architects on how to design and manufacture your own rope playground net or bridge. We take pride in only offering the highest quality of materials guaranteeing strength, safety, finish, colour and UV stabibility. We aim to supply a playground that several generations of children can enjoy. Rope nets are a design classic in the playground.

Materials

Our design and technical team are always pushing for new products, technologies and materials to meet your growing needs. This is why you can use our expert knowledge in rope, connectors and end fittings to find the best solution for your rope playground. The versatility of our range of end fittings is key in finding the best most safe and secure application for your playground. You can personalise your product by selecting rope and connectors colours to tie the net into the playground, landscape or environment.

Design

Our design team collaborates with operations, technical, production and marketing in developing components, custom nets, and freestanding structures, either designed to EN1176 or certified by TUV SUD, ready for distribution. Both Design and Technical are fully trained in solid modelling software Solidworks. Our design library contains: 3D CAD, 2D DWG CAD blocks, installation instructions, and renders to support you with your rope playground project.
