Carousels are a fun and exciting addition to a playground. Spinning at speed can be a great thrill, but if the item is not built and maintained to required Standards, there is risk of serious injury.

Due to the motion of carousels, incorrect gaps can cause nasty injuries to limbs, fingers or toes. ‘In ground’ carousels that sit flush with the ground present elevated risk if required tolerances are not met.

a_space carousels have been meticulously designed and are manufactured and installed to strict quality standards to ensure all tolerances are correct and compliant with AS4685 Playground Safety Standards. Our carousels have been third party certified for further peace of mind.

Periodic maintenance is required for carousels and easy access to the mechanisms below carousel platforms is essential. a_space carousels incorporate a service panel to allow easy access. This is not common to all carousels.

Designed and manufactured in Australia at our central production facility, we also provide fast turnaround spare parts when required.

    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”
