Company Info: History Over forty years ago the Playground Revolution was initiated by TimberForm designs. The form and function of contemporary play facilities were immediately and forever transformed. Todays finest play structures and accessories evolved from radically new concepts originated by TimberForm designs. An innovative modular post and deck system reduced the need for many embedded posts and allowed for simplified installation by community volunteers. Friends and neighbors could now erect a significant play structure in a several hours on a weekend. RePlay Play Areas feature the same proven structural system as TimberForm but replace the timber members with environmentally friendly 100 recycled post-consumer plastic posts and beams. Specifying RePlay can help achieve LEED Credits for Recycled Content. PipeLine play systems the toughest metal play system in the world replicate in steel the post and deck concepts originated in TimberForm designs. Fresh InterPlay groupings incorporate tough PipeLine structural elements in deck-free Active Kid Modules that encourage body enhancing activities for older children. A2Z Play equipment is designed with age-appropriate activities and safe challenges for the pre-school child. A2Z Play provides many opportunities to stimulate the mind as well as exercise the body in ways fitting the reduced size and limited motor skills of young children. And finally Themed Play has become a hallmark of Columbia Cascade whether TimberForm- or PipeLine- based our Themed Play Areas and accessories are unique in the industry. Choose from those illustrated on this website or ask us to create a playground based upon your specific motif. A team of experienced designers is ready to turn your dream into a reality. Accessibility for All Accessibility to all players is now a prime consideration in the playground equipment selection process. Columbia Cascade has long been active in the design and production of play structures that serve the needs of all children. Many states and the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act make accessibility for all children a key consideration in playground design and equipment selection. Accessible Play Areas from each of our play systems as well as several unique Separates and Accessories are presented on this website. Safety Columbia Cascade has actively and enthusiastically participated in the improvement of playground equipment safety performance standards and guidelines for public playgrounds since they were first proposed. The products presented here reflect current playground equipment safety specifications. It should be noted that the most significant safety factor relating to playground injuries remains the surface beneath and around the equipment. As an equipment manufacturer we have no control over this most important safety aspect. Therefore we cannot emphasize the following statement too stronglyUnder no circumstances should play equipment be placed or remain in service upon hard unyielding surfaces such as concrete asphalt compacted earth or turf (natural or synthetic). Eco-friendly From our headquarters at Portland Oregon Columbia Cascade has been committed to producing eco-friendly playground equipment since its inception. All of our products and finishes are made from non-toxic materials and our factory and offices are operated and maintained in an environmentally responsible manner. All of our metal components are coated with CASPAX-7 a lead-free powder coating. The steel and aluminum used in our products contains 80-100 post-consumer recycled metal. RePlay plastic timbers are made from 100 post-consumer recycled HDPE plastic. The wood used in our products is obtained from sources that adhere to strict and ecologically sound sustained yield practices. Many of our products can help in achieving LEED credits for your project. LEED is a registered trademark of the U. S.GreenBuilding Council. Our Manufacturing Plant Our production facility employs strict environmental management practices. The lead-free CASPAX-7 powder-coating process emits no volatile solvents (0 V.O.C.) to the atmosphere and is ecologically sound. There are no factory emissions of any kind. Using energy efficient fluorescent lamps factory lighting is motion controlled and task oriented. Factory storm water is diverted to on-site engineered bio-swales rather than to a stream or public sewer system. All production scrap (metal wood and plastic) is recycled. Wooden shipping pallets are salvaged restored and reused. All new cardboard packaging is produced only from recycled paper products. Our Design Headquarters and Offices Our headquarters location was selected for easy access to the expanded light-rail line in the geographical center of Portland Oregon. We encourage our employees to commute to work via mass-transit or alternative transportation. The company provides on-site bicycle racks and monthly transit passes for employees. On-site showers and changing rooms are available to cyclists. To conserve energy and natural resources we discontinued the industry practice of mass-mailings of paper catalogs over ten years ago. Although we still print a limited number of catalogs for hand distribution we encourage the online downloading of PDF copies. All paper plastic and metal waste is segregated and recycled. Obsolete computer equipment is delivered to authorized recyclers. Current Designs and Specifications As a quality-conscious manufacturer we are constantly improving our products to better serve our customers. Therefore all designs product features and specifications depicted on this website are subject to change without notice.
