Solar panels

Green energy – solar panels in FreeKids equipment

The interest in eco-friendly power generation stems from the growing awareness of the society and the will to save the natural environment and to use natural resources in a sustainable way. To meet these needs, we have created a collection of equipment with solar panels, which produce electricity when exposed to sunrays.

The panels do not require connection to external power supply. They create an integrated equipment that charges an internal battery throughout the day. When it is getting darker, a dusk sensor automatically turns on LED lighting that illuminates the playground for the next 3 hours.
