Lappset Group has been a forerunner in environmental matters since the company was founded in the 1970s. Managing environmental matters and supporting sustainable development are an important aspect of Lappset’s quality and philosophy. Environmental aspects are taken into consideration early in the design process, and products are estimated to last for at least 15 years. The long lifespan of our playground equipment is part of this sustainable development.
Taking care of the environment and making the environment enjoyable
Lappset products are designed, manufactured, packaged and delivered with the aim of causing as little burden on the environment as possible. By using long-lasting and recyclable materials, we use less raw materials and energy and also reduce emissions from deliveries.
The modular structure of our products provides considerable savings in terms of wood materials, production, storage and delivery.
With the help of product development and research, we aim to reduce the harmful effects our products might have on the environment. The operational safety of our products is ensured in internationally recognised test laboratories. Industrial safety is ensured through the Group’s industrial safety scheme.
At Lappset, we follow an environmental scheme which aims at minimising the environmental effects of our production, products and services. We monitor the efficiency of these measures by means of environmental audit reports and internal inspections and by controlling the use of raw materials, energy and water.
To make the environment enjoyable
Lappset has worked for four decades to make the environment enjoyable. A playground situated in or near a residential area, in a public park or outside a nursery or school also functions as a neighbourhood activity park. Equipment safety, aesthetic design, sustainable raw materials and production processes and age-appropriate and adaptable equipment enable us to create an environment that invites everyone to play and move around. Lappset’s wide product range includes everything from playground and fitness park equipment to park and street furniture to suit both traditional and modern surroundings.
A safe, functional and aesthetic play environment brings together three generations. In addition to broadening the concept of product lifespan, Lappset has redefined play by developing the “0-100” concept i.e. a range of fitness equipment for seniors to support health and movement in daily life. Lappset supplies opportunities and equipment for play and playful exercise for all ages from toddlers to seniors.
Taking responsibility for environmental issues is an integral part of quality
Lappset adheres to the quality management system which is certified by SFS and meets the demands of ISO 9001.
Wood from certified forests
Lappset products are principally made from Finnish wood. Wood is also a recyclable material.
