Berliner Seilfabrik GmbH & Co.
Who we are
Berliner Seilfabrik - Play equipment for life
This slogan means a lot to us! It defines how we work and construct playgrounds. In the almost 50 years in which we have been dealing with playground equipment, we have built up an extensive product range with creative ideas and industry expertise. We offer unforgettable, fascinating designs for all types of play, whether indoors or outdoors.
Our playgrounds are made for generations – built to last for decades to bring movement not just to our kids, but to their kids also; therefore addressing sustainability in the interests of future generations.
To achieve an optimum of sustainability, playgrounds have to be long lasting investments.
We make our play structures last for decades, which makes replacements less necessary, thus saves resources. A large percentage of our playgrounds installed before 1980 are still in use, still safe, and still fun to play on.
Berliner Seilfabrik uses Aluminum made from 85 percent recycled pre- and postconsumer material. The steel we use to build our durable playgrounds is made from 70% postconsumer recycled steel. Our production has been PVC free for more than a decade. We take every step in the ‘cradle-to-cradle’ process seriously and ensure that the total carbon footprint of our products is as small as possible. Over 90 percent of our products and materials are recyclable and we put the remaining metal and HDPE remnants back into the recycling process. Our state-of-the-art powder coating process works solvent-free.
Our newly built, highly insulated production and office facility uses renewable energy; the entire building is equipped with energy efficient lighting. The warm/cold ground under the production area uses a counter-flow heat exchanger for cooling/heating of the offices.
To reduce water usage, we collect all rainwater in a reservoir to water the plants. Thinking green should not be limited to just the design of the most environmentally friendly play equipment.
At Berliner Seilfabrik, we don’t just think green, we work green. All of our products meet and exceed the regulations for lead in paint, lead in substrate and phthalates to protect both: our kids and the environment.
