What are hill slides and what distinguishes them?
Hillside slides are special constructions that allow for a downhill ride. They are especially popular in playgrounds, city parks, or on various kinds of hills neighboring residential estates.
Mound slide can have varying lengths and inclinations, depending on the height of the embankment and the slope angle, but also the individual preferences of the client. Thanks to the application of special construction elements, our slope slides ensure not only plenty of fun but also safety when using them.
Types of hill slides
The terrain’s layout and the presence of objects that could potentially be obstacles have a significant impact on the possibilities of a slide project – its length, inclination, shape, or type. We produce 3 main types of terrain slides:
Earthscape slides are primarily dedicated to places with naturally varied terrain. As the name suggests, earthscape slides can be mounted on all kinds of slopes, hillsides, mounds, and elevations, where the natural inclination of the terrain can be used to create interesting downhill paths. Slides can also be installed on artificially created slopes.
They will be perfect in places such as parks, recreational, and tourist areas. Hill slides will also work well in forested areas, where you can combine descents with the natural landscape, providing unforgettable experiences for users. In mountainous areas, terrain slides can be used as an alternative return route on mountain trails, significantly shortening the journey time.
Additionally, hill slides are an excellent solution for playgrounds, where they can be integrated with other elements, such as swings or ladders, creating a comprehensive play space.
DEINOX – Custom design of embankment slides
The design and production of hill slides is a process that requires appropriate knowledge and experience. Our company is engaged in the design and production of hillside slides, which are tailored to the individual requirements and preferences of the client. As part of the design of embankment slides, we take into account, among other things, the hill gradient, the length of the slide, and safety requirements.
During the production of our mound slides, we pay special attention to the meticulous quality of workmanship. This, combined with the use of sturdy material, such as stainless steel, makes them resistant to damage and ensures long-term use.
To create a design of a slide suitable for a given hill, it is necessary to initially determine the terrain sculpture. For this purpose, you can provide us, for example, a map with contour lines, a dimensioned cross-sectional drawing of the mound, or a hand sketch showing the profile of the hill and its basic dimensions – height, length, and inclination. Photos of the terrain, taken from different perspectives, can also be useful at the stage of designing a slope slide. The more accurate data we receive, the more precisely we will be able to make a design of a terrain slide for you, adapted to your hill.
The angle of descent of the earthscape slide proposed by us usually oscillates in the range of 30-35 degrees. If the hill is too gentle, we recommend considering its modernization to achieve an appropriate hill angle, as it has a significant impact on the functionality of the device itself.
At DEINOX, we provide comprehensive customer service, including the installation of slides on the hill. The valuation of the assembly of a mound slide is made by us individually, based on a number of different factors. The execution time and the cost of installing hillside slides depend on the individual conditions of a given place, such as the slope gradient, type of soil, the possibility of free access of heavy machines to the assembly place, or the availability of equipment and tools.
Mound slides usually occur as free-standing structures, in which all supports are anchored in the ground. There is also the possibility of equipping a terrain slide with fastening elements, allowing for installation to a platform / play tower located at the top of the hill.
During the installation of terrain slides on slopes, we pay special attention to the correct joining of elements and setting up a slide on the terrain, in order to eliminate possible deviations of the device from the vertical. This affects the safety of users and the durability of the construction. Our hill slides are installed by experienced specialists, who ensure not only solidity and professionalism, but also the aesthetics of the workmanship.
Safety during the use of embankment slides
Safety during the use of embankment slides is a matter of priority for us. Therefore, our embankment slides are designed and produced in accordance with the highest safety standards.
The design of the slide on the earthscape must be stable and durable to ensure the safety of users. In our slope slides, we use special elements that increase safety during their use. For example, our open scoop slides on earthscape are equipped with a safety bar at the entrance and raised side sills on bends. We help in the selection of the safest slide for a given terrain – we eliminate the danger associated with using slides at great heights.
