We are architects and experts in social sciences, who use all kinds of languages and construction techniques, and who design spaces of value with a high social impact.
We offer thousands of high-quality references. These products, organized by ranges, themes and categories, enable you to infinitely make combinations which can be adapted to any necessity.
We also offer complete playgrounds. These can be perfectly adapted to the amount of space and the surrounding area. Besides that, we could even customize the playground, making it as personal as possible.
If you look for something spectacular and exclusive, you are definitely interested in Projects: In this department, we push our limits together, let loose our creativity, and explore new posibilities, making your dream space come true!
In our product database you can find all of our products, and many different examples of playground spaces. You can filter by range, theme, category or age, so that you will find your favourite playground in no time.
We transform public spaces, maximising their full potential, so that they contribute to the well-being of the community.
Our vision is to create spaces that aspire to build a society that is (more) inclusive, interesting and fun: a society in which we can all learn and enjoy together.
How It All Started
The origins of Galopín go back more than 30 years, in a small town in Northern Spain, where our first altruistic and self-managed community play space was built. Over the years we have observed its effects on children, families and the wider community and how it contributes to the wellbeing of the town and city.
Now, Galopín has become the leading Spanish company in design and production of outdoor playground equipment. We are growing rapidly through continued international expansion as a result of having the most original products available in the industry.
Encouraging play is synonymous with promoting health, which is why all our playground equipment brings dimension to a space by combining fun and exercise.
Our play areas allow children, teenagers, adults and seniors to let their imagination run wild and have fun. They are encouraged to share their spare time, and people with disabilities are also welcome to play and share in the fun.
We build play areas where citizens, neighbours or users can see reflected the pride of belonging to a collective space in which the same values are shared by everyone.
We always keep the pedagogic necessities in mind by enabling free play, the growth of self-esteem, and physical, mental and social development.
We put our love for nature – and the numerous benefits that are related to a green environment – into every space we design, by getting inspired by natural shapes and elements.
All our products comply with the European certification EN-1176: 2017 of Equipment for playground and surfaces; EN-16630: 2015 of Fixed physical training equipment installed outdoors; EN-15312: 2010, of Free access multi-sports equipment; EN-14974: 2010 of Facilities for users of sports equipment on wheels and PPP-55021A for Dog circuits; issued all of them by the TÜV Product Service. In addition, In Galopín we have been pioneers in self-imposing the DIN 33942 regulation as a quality standard and as the basic norm of our work in the design of universal elements; this has helped us to have a very wide catalogue of references, both of games officially certified by this standard, as well as others in which all children can participate.
The As Salgueiras Foundation is our design laboratory and the source of inspiration that moves us.
We work directly together with this foundation, which is a reference in medical assisted animal therapy for people with disabilities.
When we saw the positive effect of these therapies, we knew we had a lot to learn from this foundation. Now, we use As Salgueiras as inspiration to get to know more about free play, the importance of nature, incusiveness, or pedagogy.
