There’s a feel good factor to buying Australian. a_space are proud to be an Australian manufacturer of playground and outdoor fitness equipment.

Beyond feeling good about supporting local products, there are so many benefits to working with an Australian manufacturer.

  • You can rest assured that our products adhere to Australia’s high standards. All of our equipment complies with Australian Standards and have been designed from the ground up to protect the end user from unnecessary risk.
  • We know Australian conditions as well as you do.  From our harsh coastal environment to the dusty outback and from our scorching sun to flooding rains,  a_space equipment is designed and specified to last for years
  • Fast access to products and spare parts. As we manufacture the products we sell, accessing products and spare parts is easy. There are no long waiting periods for sourcing and shipping of parts from overseas manufacturers.
  • Improved sustainability. Apart from removing the environmental impact of overseas shipping, Australian manufacturers are governed by environmental standards that are either not required or ignored in other countries.
  • Helping the Australian economy. We are directly benefiting our economy through manufacturing in Australia, employing Australians and buying from local suppliers.
  • While there are many bad news stories in the media about the state of Australian manufacturing, we’re pleased to see A-Play’s (now a_space) manufacturing operation continue to grow in size, sophistication, quality and efficiency.

    We are so thrilled that a_space did our school playground. Blackheath School P&C raised enough money to put in play equipment and a_space were really thoughtful and sensitive to our budget. The design, landscaping, project management and installation team were completely professional and approachable through every stage of the process. The children at Blackheath Public School are absolutely thrilled with their new equipment – the teachers can’t keep them off it.

    “This project was excellent, ran smoothly, was well coordinated and completed ahead of schedule. A new rubber surface, some new equipment and shade installation has given this playground a great face lift and an extended life”
