Product and Technical Details

Composition

ID Sculpture uses a high performance composite technology to construct our products. Our typical structures use a digitally fabricated armature encapsulated with a specially formulated shell of glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC). The GFRC structural shell is hand sculpted and finished. The result is a product that’s lightweight yet durable, rich in textural detail, and architecturally accurate so you can plan your project down to the smallest detail. We can even design our products to interface with existing site features, like retaining walls.

Safety

Safety is at the heart of all we do. Compliance with nationally recognized standards provides a safer environment for children and the general public.

All of our playground features conform to ASTM F1487, the “Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specification for Playground Equipment for Public Use” as well as the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Guidelines. ID Sculpture has Certified Playground Safety Inspectors (CPSI) in house to ensure that designs are safe and compliant. We proudly offer a range of products certified by the International Playground Manufacturers Association, Inc. (IPEMA).

Installation

All of our projects are designed and fabricated with installation in mind. We understand the realities of construction sites and have learned how to properly execute even the most demanding installations.

Most of our sculptures are installed by local certified playground installers and contractors. Sculptures come with either an integral footing or are designed for a simple, site-built slab on grade. Your sculpture will come with everything you need to install it, including mechanical connection points, hardware, an easy to understand installation guide and an Operations and Maintenance manual.

Durability + Warranty

While most conventional playground equipment is replaced, on average, every ten years; ID Sculpture believes in a higher bar. The life expectancy of our outdoor sculptural concrete products is estimated to be 50 years. Everything we build is made to last.

Our proprietary concrete was developed through years of experience in the harshest of climates – from the bitter cold of our home in Gunnison, Colorado to the blazing heat of Mesa, Arizona. ID Sculpture’s proprietary concrete mix is the toughest in the industry and is designed for easy maintenance and repair. All ID Sculpture products are warrantied for 10 years.
