About us

Action have been in the outdoor play business since the 1980’s and in 2001 created the Action Range of Climbing Frames.

Our dream is to make the best play value climbing frames in the market, at reasonable prices. We want to offer your family maximum play value with maximum financial value.
Our speciality is Residential Climbing Frames, and as such we have studied children at play. Your children need constant physical challenge, and constant imagination play. The Action Range offers fun, yet challenging climbing frames which is the result of research and years of experience.

We make our climbing frames using the latest methods, creating challenging activity for your children, whilst keeping them safe, making sure that everything we do exceeds the European EN71 Safety Standards.

We also like to keep our climbing frames as environmentally positive as possible. We manufacture wooden climbing frames; all manufactured using PEFC sourced timber, meaning that the timbers only come from sustainable forests. Learn more about PEFC.

We also think of the environment when it comes to packaging. We use as little packaging as possible, so when you get your climbing frame unpacked and erected, there will be little waste to throw away.

Our climbing frames are modular, so you can make your climbing frame suit your family and your individual circumstances. Modularity means that you can design your own climbing frame. We have spent a long time making the units work together, so that the design your own system works. See our Design Your Own Climbing Frame Section to see how it works.

Of course, we also like to make it easy for you, so we also have a comprehensive range of complete climbing frames. See our Complete Climbing Frames Section to see our famous brand named climbing frames like the Arundel, Arundel Twin, Gate Lodge and Carisbrooke.

We are proud of our record of innovation in climbing frames. Our achievements include:

  • The first twin tower residential climbing frame linked with the innovative clatterbridge
  • The first ‘Den in the Air’ Climbing Frame, the Gate Lodge
  • The first range designed to be totally modular
  • The first Design Your Own Software to allow you to choose your own.

In 2007, we merged with Garden Games Limited, giving us more resources to add to our impressive record of firsts and innovation. That extra investment has allowed us to build on that track record, creating Action 3D, the first Design Your Own Software for climbing frames, and the next few months will see further new launches and new climbing frames ‘firsts’.
