PARKOUR & FITNESS

Traceurs challenge themselves

An area containing Lappset’s parkour products offers practitioners a place to practice, designed by experts in the sport, where fine-tuning moves is definitely safe and allowed. Because the area offers challenges even for those with advanced skills, it is also excellent at fostering the sense of community that is an essential part of the sport. When people with varying abilities get together, those who are more expert can serve as examples to the younger ones, and they do so in more than just parkour.

Lappset’s parkour products are safe for beginners while also offering plenty of challenges for advanced users. Different levels of skill were taken into account as early as the planning stage, as professionals in the sport were on board throughout product development.

In designing routes particular attention must be paid to the distances between the equipment and the position of the various elements in relation to each other. Designing a parkour area is an excellent opportunity to kick-start a relationship with local traceurs. If this isn’t possible, however, there is always the option of choosing a suitable ready-made design for your site instead. In designing the site you can also call on the expertise of Lappset’s MyDesign team, whose designers work in close cooperation with parkour professionals.

Active Aging! Health promoting exercise supports the well-being of all!

The worldwide number of people over 60 years of age is growing at a faster pace than that of any other age group. If this age group grows as predicted, they will number nearly two billion by 2050. At that point, people over 60 will, for the first time in history, constitute a larger proportion of the world’s population than people younger than 14. 

A good ability to function guarantees the well-being of the elderly.

Proven product efficiency  

Lappset’s product range for senior citizens sustains well-being and has been developed in close collaboration with exercise professionals. We draw from research on the elderly and monitor the usage of our products alongside our clients and the end users. Furthermore, we engage in continuous development work with exercise professionals and experts in various aspects of health care. Hence we are able to ensure the functionality and safety of our products and to maximise their benefit for the users. All the products in our product range, as well as the items of outdoor furniture recommended to supplement them, comply with European quality and safety standards. By using high-quality materials and solutions that withstand even extreme conditions, all of our products are long-term and safe investments.
A global test environment

Ageing of the population and the associated challenges are a globally important theme. As a preventive measure, the World Health Organization has set up the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities. Building a park for senior citizens is one way of building an environment that better meets the needs of the elderly. We have already built more than a thousand parks for senior citizens, in 23 countries, worldwide (for example, in Asia, Australia, and Europe). 

Lappset has built more than 600 senior parks around the cities of Barcelona, Girona, and Lleida, in the region of Catalonia, north-east Spain.
