Gorilla Bar DIY Kit

£399.00 (Excl VAT£332.50)

8ft Gorilla Bar Kit NEW FOR 2020. 

We have developed our new Gorilla DIY Bar Kit for this year.  Each kit comes with 4 x Brackets & Bolts  along with 5 x 3.5ft wide pull up bars. The bars are spaced out to suit adults and children (8+).  Unlike our monkey bars, the spacing allows adults to do  do FULL PULL UP’s on each bar.  The optional extra underneath the is for back rows, press ups, triceps dips and children to roll over.  The optional ladder bars are for children to climb up.

This has just been independently analysed and signed off to meet the standards under EN16630 (Outdoor Gym Equipment)

Why Buy a Gorilla Bar Kit:

  • Because the brackets are on the inside of the posts, you can use them in place of any design that uses our existing monkey bar.
  • You can chose the gap between the bars to suit you.  (We suggest a gap of 530mm between bars).
  • The gap allows 8+children to still swing whilst adults can do pull ups on each bar with hitting there head.
  • You can put the 2 x bars at each end either higher or lower than the main 3 bars to add variation.
  • The WIDTH of the bar is 3.5ft so you have plenty of space of pullups.
