Happy Customer

* * * * *

Excellent climbing frame. Easy to assemble but reading the instructions and measuring bars essential. Impressed with the improvements since I bought a TP climbing frame for my children 30 years ago.

14th September 2018

  • Q

    What is the floor diameter of this frame please? Many thanks

    The Explorer2 is a hexagon, so essentially you need to think about the base as a circle with a diameter of approximately 190cm. 


  • Q

    Please can you tell me if this den will fit the original explorer frame too? Thanks

    Yes, this den will fit the original Explorer.


  • Q

    we have a wavy slide . will we be able to attach / adapt this to the frame?

    Sorry, we cannot comment on the suitability of any slides, apart from TP slides, because we only safety test our own products


  • Q

    Do the dens come with any guarantee? I'm concerned they won't weather well? Thank you

    these come with a 12 month guarentee but we do recommend they are bought inside in harsh weather to prolong the life.


  • Q

    Hi Are there any spare parts available for the climbing frame? I need some of the blue plastic ends with square nuts and maybe some bolts. Thanks Gerry

    Thank you for your enquiry. Our spares provider can be contacted on 01609 881 911 or


  • Q

    Hi One of the legs on the frame is severely bent (at the bottom part) can we get a steel leg from yourselves to replace this ? the bottom part) thanks mIchelle

    Our spares and warranty department will be able to help with this enquiry.


  • Q

    what is the maximum weight the platform can handle?

    Hello, the platform can hold a combined user weight of 100KG. Kind regards, TP.  


  • Q

    Can I purchase the climbing frame without den and platform?

    The Explorer frame is supplied with the Den and Platform but these do not need to be used 


  • Q

    what age range is this frame suitable for

    The TP Explorer2 guarantees years of active play. It's fun for children as young as just 18 months old when built at low height; at full height its perfect for kids aged 3-12 years.


  • Q

    Is it possible to get a replacement base platform as the tarp has eventually given up.. ?

    The Explorer platform is available to purchase separately here


  • Q

    How do you secure it down? Does it need cementing in?

    This frame comes with ground pegs that are pushed into the ground to secure


  • Q

    What are the dimensions and weight of the package, as it's shipped?

    This product comes in one box tht is 123x35x13cm and weighs 24kg


  • Q

    Do you remove the plastic caps on the ends of the bars? Or should the poles be attached with these on the bars.

    The plastic caps are for safety protection and should be left on 


  • Q

    Does the metal get hot to touch in hot weather?

    As with anything metal outside it will get hot if in full sun


  • Q

    Is the frame platform and cover all included 

    The frame is supplied with the Den and Platform included


  • Q

    What size is the delivery box? I’m wondering if I’ll have some space to hide it for Xmas!
