The Spark Series Snake Climber Wavy is an unusual metal climbing piece with an interesting and strategically-shaped design. The ‘snake’ style steps wind back and forth, creating an alternating pattern of square steps which encourages children to alternate between their left and right feet while climbing. This interesting step pattern is much more enjoyable for children than a simple vertical ladder. The wavy shape means that children will always be supported as they climb, as there is no particularly large section of vertical climbing without something directly under it. This makes it easier for younger children to climb safely, and for older children to climb quickly. The bars are made from durable galvanized steel bars with a protective layer of powder based paint baked onto them to ensure that it does not fade or chip, even after years of being climbed on and exposed to outdoor conditions.
