Delano, MN (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, has introduced ZipKrooz™, the world’s best inclusive zip line for playgrounds. Zip lines have become the fastest growing recreational sport in the world, and now ZipKrooz brings the adventure to the playground in a safe way. Even more, playground planners can pair ZipKrooz and its accessible companion, ZipKrooz Assisted, for truly inclusive play.
Unlike other playground zip lines, ZipKrooz offers a two-way ride—kids will zip from one end to the other, and back again for nonstop fun. Built-in elevation helps riders gain momentum at the beginning, and then slow down at the end for a safe exit. With three lengths of track available, ZipKrooz and ZipKrooz Assisted can accommodate any playground or all three can be installed to offer users a graduated experience.
Clients can choose from the challenging poly disc seat (ZipKrooz) or more secure molded bucket seat with lock-in-place harness (ZipKrooz Assisted). Installed together, ZipKrooz and ZipKrooz Assisted provide children of all abilities the feeling of flying side-by-side. And both configurations stimulate kids’ vestibular and proprioceptive senses, help kids learn to play cooperatively, and exercise kids’ balance, coordination and core strength.
Safety is built into ZipKrooz and ZipKrooz Assisted. The playground zip line uses a four-wheel trolley system for a smoother, more controlled ride. Even more, a decorative and functional fin is build into the track to help discourage kids from accessing the top. ZipKrooz meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards, and a model that meets European Standards (EN) is available.
