Kidspace children’s museum is situated beside the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. This highly regarded family destination has over 40 interactive exhibits and play experiences for everyone. Situated on what had been a horticultural center at Brookside Park, the museum opened its 3 acre campus in 2004. The museum focuses its developmental learning programs on children aged 1 to 10 years of age, with variety of scientific and natural based exhibits that encourage exploration.

The product which had previously been installed was heavily damaged by the constant use of children climbing through the exhibit. The museum contacted us about our climb netting products, and in particular our own patented Shrinking Net®.

Our 5/8 Climbing Net, is hand woven and meets the ASTM standards for amusement netting. The Supersoft™ rope that the nets are made from is available in over 18 brilliant colors. In the case of the replacement net which we manufactured for the Kidspace rope bridge, we made them a jute colored, 5/8 Shrinking climb net, with a 30K barrier net for the top of the bridge.

Trusting that they are being provided with a product and a professional installation that will be a good return on their investment. Unfortunately, we’ve seen many situations where an inappropriate product is installed and needs to be replaced before long.
