Outdoor Education Equipment Cleaning & Servicing

At ONE PLANET®, we design and make some of the world’s finest outdoor education gear. We also provide ‘how to’ advice and professional servicing options for the ongoing maintenance of fleet equipment. Regular maintenance and servicing of gear fleets for school and institutional use will result in years of comfort, performance and durability.

Best practice for cleaning and disinfecting equipment

Equipment hygiene has become an essential part of risk management for schools and institutions, especially for outdoor gear that may be used by multiple users within a short time frame.

ONE PLANET – Guidelines for maintaining equipment aims to provide advice and best practice guidelines for risk management. We can help you maintain, clean and disinfect ONE PLANET® equipment so that kids stay safe and healthy, and life is as easy as possible for teachers and leaders.

In our Melbourne factory we can help with the maintenance of your fleet, whether that is cleaning, servicing (including the use of disinfectants and sanitisers), repairs or replacement parts.

If your gear needs a little TLC, send it to us at the end of term. We’ll have it back by the first week of class, ready to face the wrecking crews again. Whatever the challenge, we can fix it. (We’ll have a red hot go, anyway.)

For servicing on individual items and gear, check out our servicing, washing and repairs page.
