does PEFC mean?
For years the manufacturer has researched into which timber
makes the perfect Climbing Frame, and after much deliberation
decided to use top grade PEFC pine. This timber is not only
a beautiful, high quality material but it is also felled
from a sustainable source therefore ensuring the social,
economic and ecological needs of future generations. The
PEFC Council is an independent, non profit, non-governmental
organization which promotes the sustainability of harvesting
timber. At present the PEFC runs 25 national schemes and
has over 1,000,000 km2 of forest certified making it the
largest timber certification scheme.

is carried out to 1mm precision to ensure maximum quality.
Finally the timber is pressure treated using a non-toxic
process, so no chromium cadmium nor arsenic used in traditional

your product, here at Action we have tried to minimize them
by only machining rectangular sections. Stronger than the
alternative round section, rectangular timber contains less
heartwood meaning the chance of cracks and splitting will
be greatly reduced. Action climbing frames only use the
