What characterizes a scoop slide?
Scoop slides are also known as trough slides which are slides with a half tube cross section. Half tube slides are some of the most popular types of slides, enjoyed by both children and adults. Their attractiveness results primarily from the dynamic descent combined with perfect visibility, ensuring lots of fun for users. They are available in several variants, so they can be adapted to individual needs and user preferences.
The main feature of trough slides is the open construction that allows for observing the person using it. This allows family, parents or guardians to keep a constant eye on the children playing, while the kids enjoy an unrestricted view and plenty of positive impressions during the ride.
Half tube slides are suitable for installation in many different places, such as playgrounds, embankments, or buildings, which makes them very versatile.
An important feature of half tube slides is also their safety. Each element of the slide must be carefully thought out and made of durable and resistant materials to guarantee safe use for a long time. All models of single half tube slides undergo rigorous analysis and checks to meet the highest safety standards. Additional equipment elements that enhance safety are also important, such as a safety bar at the entrance to the slide or raised side walls on the curve of a twisty slide.
In summary, scoop slides are an ideal solution for everyone who values safe, yet exciting fun combined with a touch of adrenaline!

Our headquarters and the place of production of our half-round slides is located in Poland, in the town of Kruszyn Krajeński, at Żytnia 2 Street. Here we design and manufacture our slides. Our production facility is equipped with the necessary equipment, allowing comprehensive creation of slides.
To keep scoop slides in good condition, we recommend regular inspections and servicing. The condition of the construction elements should be checked, any possible mechanical damages that could affect the safety of users and the condition of bolted connections should be inspected. Regular cleaning of slides from dirt, such as sand, dust or leaves, using gentle detergents to avoid damaging the surface, is also important.
All our slides and playground tunnels comply with the PN-EN 1176 standard. However, for devices installed on the premises of institutions under the Ministry of National Education, a certificate from an accredited certifying unit is required. If necessary, we will be happy to help the customer in organizing the certification process for the slide.
We can deliver our half tube slides to every corner of the globe. We have carried out many projects in various countries, such as Germany, Great Britain, France, Spain, USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Slovenia, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia or Ireland. We are constantly expanding our offer and strengthening our presence in international markets to meet the expectations of customers around the world. Thanks to our experience, we can effectively implement projects on every continent, meeting all safety and quality standards.
The waiting time for a single half tube slide can vary depending on the workload of production, the size of the order and the transport time. It usually takes from 4 to 8 weeks from the moment of placing the order, but it can be extended for larger or non-standard projects. For precise information on the current waiting time for a specific single half-round slide model, please contact us.
The surface required for the installation of a scoop slide mainly depends on the dimensions of the device. Usually, the required area is from several to several tens of square meters, depending on the type and height of the slide. Before starting the installation, it is worth consulting with our specialists.
The installation time of a slide depends on many aspects, such as the size of the slide, the installation site, the type of ground or access to the area – therefore, the installation time can last from one to several days. The final assembly time is determined for each project individually.
Our scoop slides are manufactured from high-quality stainless steel, making them more durable than those made from synthetic materials. This is possible thanks to the considerable strength of this raw material. However, proper care and regular maintenance are crucial for keeping the slide in good condition and safe to use for a long time. Special attention should be paid to maintaining cleanliness. From our side, we provide a long-term warranty and offer full technical support and service in case of any problems or failures.
To answer this question, we need more information about your needs and requirements. Here are some factors worth considering:
- Slide use – will it be used by children, teenagers, or adults? Depending on the age group of users, different models of slides may be suitable.
- Installation location – slides can be mounted on playgrounds, in parks, on slopes, or inside buildings. The type of slide will depend on the terrain characteristics or any requirements regarding the specific location of the starting and ending point of the slide.
- Slide dimensions – the starting height, length, and shape of the slide will depend on the available space and your preferences.
- Budget – different slide models have different prices, it’s worth considering how much you want to spend on a slide and what your expectations are in terms of its functionality.
We encourage you to contact us so that we can help you choose the right model of half-round slide, best suited to your needs and expectations.
In the case of trough slides, installed on slopes and having contact with the ground along their entire length, the mounting height will generally not have a major impact on the safety of users. However, for open slides such as half-tube slides, where the free fall height exceeds 2.5m (or 2m if the starting part is easily accessible), the standard PN-EN 1176-3:2017-12 provides for the use of side barriers of no less than 50cm in height.
Nevertheless, in our catalogue of ready-made designs for single scoop slides, we only offer devices where the free fall height does not exceed 2.5m. Aware of the unpredictability of children, we realize that in the case of significant heights, the safest slides are definitely those with a closed cross-section. For this reason, in such situations we recommend our clients to consider choosing a tube slide.
