Hi,

 

I have been looking for a slide to go up on a retaining wall in my garden.  It seems that the common height for slides is around 1.2m.  I can't find anywhere that does them over that height.
Around 1.5 / 1.8m is the height I think I need.

 

Does anyone know of a place to source one?

Thanks.

You will probably need to look at a commercial provider ...

 

1.2 metres is the limit for building something without a building consent.. hence the focus on that height at Bunnings/warehouse/mitre 10 etc, 

 

 

 

I found this place has 1.5 and 1.8 ones .. They are a NZ/Aust company.....

Where did you get the 1.2m figure? From the MBIE page on work that doesn't need building consent "Playground equipment doesn't require a building consent if it's for a single private household, and no part of it exceeds 3 metres above supporting ground level."

Hmm, I was sure it was  that, but its looks like you are right,  you have a 3 metre  max height,...

 

I guess its derived back from that, 

 

if you are building a roofed 2 story playhouse with slide that's a 1.5 metre max floor height,  but if you want a traditional "peaked" roof, you need to loose some height and with common timber lengths being  1.5 or 1.2m .. I guess 1.2 became the default...
