Children's sports complex in the apartment: varieties and equipment
There are many types of children's sports complexes that can be installed directly in the apartment. They all differ from each other in certain characteristics:
- by material of manufacture (metal, wood);
- by the method of fastening (wall-mounted, wall-mounted, spacer, wall-spaced, autonomous);
- by the composition of component parts (classic, multi-element).
Material for the manufacture of DSK
A home sports complex should be made of durable material that is easy to maintain. There are some models in which plastic can be used for the tips of the most wearing places.
Complexes made of metal are capable of withstanding significant loads. Their design consists of racks (pipes) with a wall thickness of 2 mm and a diameter of 42 mm, covered with a special paint. So that the surface of the crossbars does not slip and maintains a normal comfortable temperature, they are rubberized. Such structures can be easily adjusted in height, which makes it possible to practice on them even for adults, and thin crossbars make them most comfortable for young children. Many models are capable of supporting up to 150 kg. Metal DSKs are able to maintain their original appearance for a long time.
Wooden complexes are usually made from oak, birch, linden, beech or pine. All of these materials can withstand significant loads, are practical and reliable.To protect children's pens from minor injuries, the wood is carefully processed and covered with a colorless, odorless varnish. Wooden DSCs are less traumatic. Since wood is a warm, "living" material, such a complex will look more aesthetically pleasing in the apartment, and will bring additional coziness and comfort. The complex made of wood is capable of withstanding a load of up to 70 kg.
