GameTime Introduces PowerScape® 3D Play Systems

GameTime, a leading manufacturer of commercial playground equipment, recently introduced an update to its popular PowerScape® playground systems line. Named for the three-dimensional appearance of its layered materials, PowerScape 3D brings a fresh, new look to one of the industry’s most popular playground systems. Moreover, the release includes a number of new play system components that add more play value and enhance the benefits of outdoor play.

“We started with a strong foundation. The PowerScape product line is synonymous with big, durable play systems that are perfect for high capacity parks and playgrounds,” said Tom Norquist, GameTime’s Senior Vice President of Product Development and Marketing. “We looked for ways to make PowerScape look more like it’s alive, a natural organism that blended with the environment and encouraged children to expand their imaginations through creative play. Professional designers and specifiers can now use color to blend the play system into the landscape like never before.”

GameTime’s design team took its cues from the natural environment, studying animal and plant life and working to create a new design vocabulary that looked like an extension of the natural world. The curved lines, intersecting materials and juxtaposed color combinations result in a play system that appears to be alive with energy and immediately captures the attention of children who experience PowerScape 3D in person.

“The heart and soul of these systems is PowerScape,” said Kim Blackwood, GameTime’s Director of Design. “From the industry’s only direct-bolt system and Tru-Loc® connection method to the industry’s widest decks and best warranty, this is all PowerScape through and through. What we added was a series of panels, roofs and rails that combined punched steel and HDPE to create an exciting new look. Those new design elements allow landscape architects and play scape designers the chance to create unique, one-of-a-kind play destinations.”

GameTime also developed new climbers, ramps, stairs, bridges and more to create a full range of play components to round out the PowerScape 3D offering.
