Rustik – unique style and a sustainable edge

Our new Rustik range is bringing refreshed innovation to playground design.

With 3 collections within the range, clients can have a more standard ‘off the shelf’ offering through to fully customised play systems integrating Australian Hardwood timbers with climbing nets and steel architectural features.

Partnering with the Wood Bank Playscape Creations’ design and engineering team has developed distinctive core product with the opportunity to personalise and individualise to suit design narratives and site theming.

The Wood Bank are a team of passionate people whose goal is to improve everyone’s life through environmentally sound products, sourced from timber that would have otherwise not been re-used.  Creating significant Value is of paramount importance to the Wood Bank, to deliver maximum function and innovative solutions to key efficiency and environmental issues based on advanced knowledge, application and strategic thinking.

Second generation timber regrowth is not allowed to be harvested by loggers and timber mills so in the vast clearing of land for development in South East QLD, these high quality timbers would otherwise go to waste.  So what better use than to reintroduce these timbers into project sites blending play and sculptural design to complement natural settings.  These timbers are also cleared of all sapwood before use – unlike timbers more commonly seen in playgrounds – so there is no outer layer that might crack and deteriorate down the line.

Two recently completed projects highlight the versatility of this range as well as Playscape Creations’ in house capability of working through a project from initial concept design through to final project completion.

Residents of Townsville’s Elliot Springs estate are the proud new owners of a state-of-the-art inclusive playspace packed with adventure and the signature tower – first of its kind from the Rustik range. 10m high Australian Hardwood posts adorn the outside with plenty of fun included on the inside.  Lendlease’s Regional Development Manager Simon Walker says of this Livvi’s Place playground “We’ve created a space where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities will feel comfortable and can thrive in their environment …. where all children can come together to have fun and feel included”.  see more on this exciting project here

More features of the Rustik range can be seen in the new Harvest Rise development at Greenbank in Brisbane.  Architectural and sculptural, these features blend the sophistication of the stainless steel arch work together with the natural timber elements to create one of a kind non-prescribed play opportunities for all ages.
