How to Choose Commercial Playground Equipment?

Playgrounds are fun. When a person thinks about them, the first thing that comes to mind is fun-filled play equipment and children. These are the prime accessories of the playgrounds. But the fun element will be at its peak only if you install the right play sets. For this, you need to consider certain factors before buying the equipment.

There are wide variety of play sets like play house, see-saw, swings sets, slide sets, climber and so on, made using metal, wood and plastic. You should select the one constructed with high quality material which can easily withstand harsh weather conditions.

The next thing that you should look for is the quality. Make sure the manufacturer of equipment you are choosing has IPEMA certification and the equipment is constructed it as per the guidelines defined by American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

While selecting the commercial playground equipment, you should also consider the safety of kids. Check if the manufacturer has installed hinges, railings, bars and other necessary anchors at the required places in the equipment. Also, ensure that there is no rough surface or pointy edge in it that can harm the kids.

Now that it has become mandatory to install ADA compliant play sets in the playground, it would be wise if you choose to purchase ADA playground equipment.
