Materials and Specifications

Freemove Parkour training facilities are crafted predominantly from a mixture of concrete and steel.

All concrete elements used in the construction of our Parkour Training Facilities are manufactured in the UK from our supplier based in Derby, this ensures that not only do we have a central location to deliver from, but also we have the minimal carbon footprint possible.

Please see our partners and suppliers page for details of the supplier and their environmental policy.

Concrete

Prefabricated double layer reinforced walls and blocks with a minimum thickness of 150mm. All concrete products are available in a range of colours to suit the environment they are in.

Colours available include: Green, Brown, Yellow, White and Grey (please ask for details).

Depending on the individual facility design there are various surface finishes available:

  • Smooth finish.
  • Sandblasted to create coarse surface finish.
  • Technical treatment to create coarse surface finish.
    • Heavy acid etch
    • Medium acid etch
    • Light acid etch
    • Ex mould
    • Polished finish
  • Coloured and modelled layer of Jetcrete, approximately 50mm to 150mm thickness to create a rock structure effect.

Elements with modelled jetcrete layer are individually carved by artists making each element unique. Jetcrete is available in numerous colours to suit individual locations natural stone colour.

Where joints between elements are considered an entrapment an elastic filler is used to gap fill, an elastic filler is used so that any movement or settlement of the elements does not cause the joint to crack and disintegrate.

Freemove have sourced UK manufacturing facilities for the majority of our concrete products to reduce our carbon footprint and we endeavour to ensure that our suppliers use sustainable sources for the raw materials they use in their manufacturing processes and use the most efficient process when manufacturing.

The environmental policies for Freemove and our suppliers are available on request.

Steel

All steel bars, frames and other components have one of the following finishes:

  • Hot dip galvanised
  • Stainless steel

Tubular Steel overall outside diameter varies depending on the proposed use. In most circumstances the diameter is 48mm.

Square Steel: In some circumstances where specified square steel can be used in a facility, exact specifications of which would be confirmed in the circumstance it is used.

Sheet Steel: In some circumstances where specified sheet steel can be used in a facility, exact specifications of which would be confirmed in the circumstance it is used.

All steel parts are connected firmly to suit the manufacture and installation process. Methods of fixing include: Bolting, pre-welding, welding on site, built into elements or cast into concrete foundations.

Where our steel components are connected to concrete elements we use an 80mm x 120mm 5mm thick galvanised steel plate with two chemical fixings. All steel components that are installed into the ground are installed to a minimum depth of 700mm and have at least 500mm of concrete.
