The post on Nucleus system is 5” O.D. and is popular with Schools and Municipal Parks that get a lot of traffic.

Intensity® 2 – 5 Outdoor Fitness Play Complex Equipment

Intensity 2 – 5 is the newest fitness play complex designed to promote the development and growth of children ages 2 – 5.  It combines the five essential development areas of physical, cognitive, sensory/motor, emotional/social and language to enhance the benefits of play for children on the playground. This new action-based design gives young players a healthy environment to develop and interact with each other. Intensity 2-5 was designed to give supervisors a clear line of site to watch over the little ones.

Voltage™ Outdoor Play Structures

Inspired by Burke’s celebrated Nucleus™ play system, Voltage™ blends the architecture of our 3½” O.D. upright support posts, hundreds of Burke classic play events and the innovative design elements of KoreKonnect® and EZKonnect®. Voltage offers great value and play for smaller Schools and Municipal Parks. The posts are very strong and are backed up by the longest and strongest warrant in the business!
