Making Playgrounds Accessible for Disabled Children

Recently, the Department of Court Justice has adopted the revisions made to American with Disabilities Act(ADA) Standards. One of the changes also involve playgrounds that are created in communities and other public areas. Under this change, the playgrounds are now required to be accessible by parents, grandparents, and caregivers with different physical conditions.

Not only the play areas should be accessible but the play structures installed in it should also be ADA compliant. Now, as per the new regulation, a certain percentage of ground level playground equipment and above ground play sets should also be made accessible for the physically challenged children.

Children who have special disabilities no longer have to miss out the fun in the playground. They can now reach out for their favorite play set installed in the playground and enjoy with their friends. It has been made possible with ADA Playground equipment.

Besides meeting the ADA Standards, the play structures installed in the park for handicapped and other children should also strictly comply with American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). PlaygroundEquipment.com offers such play sets to the customers on discount. Equipment offered by this store is designed by some of the renowned brands like American Playground, Champion Sports, Child Works, Childforms and Gorilla Playsets.
