The Log Jam® play system allows designers to specify a natural play structure just as easily as a traditional one. Nature's Instruments provides AutoCAD Blocks and installation details for the Log Jam® play system and all of their natural playground components, free of charge! The Log Jam® play system can be installed anywhere and fits any budget. Customize this play structure with different games to create new experiences and challenges to fit the needs of your clients.
The Log Jam® play system provides custom play value, without the custom price, and is expandable to fit your needs. It offers varied sized logs tied together in a unique, artistic configuration that encourages climbing and social play. Each Log Jam® pod can be strung together with a series of rope or log based games to create a composite structure of infinite possibilities.
Install the Log Jam® play system anywhere! Designed for use in parks, rooftops, forests or trails, each Log Jam® pod comes from our studio prebuilt and mounted on a 4’x8’ treated steel ground frame. Installation is simple and flexible. Rooftop installations are now possible with our interlocking ground frame system and less than 80lb/sq. ft. load. Sensitive forest floor or play-trail applications are a breeze, requiring only four helical piles per pod.
Fit any budget! You have the flexibility to add more variety over time. Where budgets are tight, parks can purchase a pair of Log Jam® pods and a game with the option to add pods and games in subsequent years, or as budget allows.
The Log Jam® play system is fully compliant with American, Canadian and European playground safety standards including CAN/CSA Z614-14, ASTM F1487-11, and EN 1176.
