Parkour Equipment Materials
All of our high-quality pre-cast concreate, and steel Parkour products are made and crafted in the UK
All our designs and installations are in line with the European standard EN16899:2016 and where relevant BS EN 1176 and 1177.
Concrete Parkour Equipment
Concrete products are available in a range of colours to suit the surrounding environment we can supply green, brown white and grey we also offer various surface finishes from smooth to sandblasted to create a coarse finish or a technical acid etched treatment (please ask for details)
Where joints between elements are considered an entrapment under BS EN 1176 an elastic filler is used to gap fill, an elastic filler is used so that any movement or settlement of the elements does not cause the joint to crack and disintegrate.
Steel Parkour Equipment
All steel bars, frames and other components can be finished in either stainless steel or a hot dip galvanizing process.
All steel components that are installed into the ground are installed to a minimum depth of 700mm and have at least 500mm of concrete.
All steel parts are connected firmly to suit the manufacture and installation process. Methods of fixing include: Bolting, pre-welding, welding on site, built into elements or cast into concrete foundations.
Where our steel components are connected to concrete elements we use an 80mm x 120mm 5mm thick galvanized steel plate with two chemical fixings.

The Discipline of Parkour
Parkour or freerunning is an attractive discipline originating from military obstacle courses, the discipline of Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling and other movements with the sole aim of traversing from one point to another using your own body strength and agility. Parkour in its very nature, is non-competitive and very much part of its ethos is one of self-improvement and self-development through movement.
Enjoyed by both Adults, teenagers and younger children (in a supervised capacity) Parkour or freerunning offers freedom to use your imagination and be as creative as one wishes challenging yourself to reach your own goals. One of the key reasons for starting Parkour is to have fun, but there are wider benefits such as keeping fit and getting stronger while being outdoors and interacting with others who have the same passion.
