We recommend the use of steel shoes to lift timber out of ground contact. This significantly increases the life span of our play equipment as the point where the uprights meet the ground is the most susceptible to rot. Our steel shoes are made from heavy duty mild steel that is hot dip galvanised. We have a range of steel shoes depending on the application. We offer a 30 year guarantee on our steel shoes. Standard maintenance involves checking the shoe to ensure the galvansing is intact, if it is damaged then touch up with galvanising paint.
