Balkan is one of the balance equipment options in the Basic series. The climbing beam adds variety to the obstacle course. Here the children must balance on the climbing net and cross to the other side in order to continue through the course.
Besides being a fun element on the obstacle course, the climbing activities on Balkan also improve the children’s gross motor skills and develop their brain. Cross-body movements with the arms and legs strengthen the neural activity between the two sides of the brain, and this interaction is used when learning to read and write.
The series assortment of stepping stones and balance equipment can be put together to create a fun obstacle course, or they can be used individually as extra parts on the playground. When children use their ability to balance and take part in games on the balancing equipment, they stimulate their cerebellum. The cerebellum controls the muscle strength used when children, for example, hold a pen or lift a glass of water, thus making it beneficial for their further development to participate in games such as the floor is made of lava. Likewise the game tag also improves the children’s spatial awareness, as they must constantly keep an eye on the one catching them and where they have to go next.
All balance equipment can be mounted directly on the ground, which means that you do not have to use money on a safety surface. The equipment also comes in all price ranges and gives you endless possibilities, as you can combine them exactly as you wish.
Children use their whole body to keep their balance and coordinate their movements on the play equipment. Balance and coordination are fundamental to children’s physical and cognitive development, and it is therefore important that they are stimulated from an early age.
Balance equipment is ideal for competitive games such as tag. The games are motivating, and teach children to test their skills and know their limits.
Children use their major muscle groups and strengthen their gross motor skills when playing on the play equipment. Gross motor skills are vital for both their basic motor development as well as their fine motor skills.
Children’s games are often fast-moving, and they must be aware of where their playmates are. This effectively trains their spatial intelligence, which is important for being able to judge distances, their sense of direction and recognising places etc.
The balance equipment works both as single pieces or in combination with other pieces of equipment, for example an obstacle course.
When seesawing, playing on the swings and balancing, children train their vestibular sense. This has a bearing on their language and basic motor development as well as their movement and concentration. Children with a strong vestibular sense are more open to new challenges.
Making cross-lateral movements with your arms and legs strengthens coordination between the right and left sides of the brain. This is important for children when starting to learn to read and write.
Taifun rope is vandalism-proof and highly resistant to wear, as it has a core of 48 strong steel wires. The core also gives the rope a tensile strength of 4,500 kg.
