BUTTING’s stainless steel pipes and piping components have been used in a very wide variety of sectors and for an even wider range of purposes. An example of this wide spectrum of uses are pipe elbows made of materials 1.4541 and 1.4571, which BUTTING regularly manufactures and supplies for a special manufacturer of equipment for rope-climbing frames. These are then used in playgrounds all over the world and gladden many a child’s heart. With around 700 constructions a year, the company’s customer is a pioneer in the field of playground equipment, with high-quality tangle-webs, and the product range stretches from the classic “rope circus” through the “spider’s web” to individually manufactured large-scale frames provided to the specifications of individual users. The long-radius elbows produced by BUTTING, each with a large radius and elbows provided with straight ends, with wall thicknesses from 3 to 6mm, are used for so-called elbow nets. The company supplies the stainless steel elbows in 2 or 3 parts with an alignment device so that the parts only have to be put together and welded in the playground itself. On top of the elbow construction, nets are spanned made of reinforced steel ropes wrapped in polyamide thread. Once it is ready, children can climb over the elbow net using the mesh at the side, both inside and outside.
