A playground is not only the favorite time past time place for the kids but certainly also keeps them busy and active. Besides providing a good means of exercising playgrounds also provide the kids an opportunity to learn basic skills and compare their skills with other kids. This is the reason why it is very important to provide the kids with a very safe and supportive playground structure for an all round development. Although playgrounds have been around since a long time, most of the modern playgrounds provide the kids much more flexibility and creativity. The intellectual aspects offered by the playground help in faster learning while supplementing the growth of the kids.
Easy maintenance – Playground rubber flooring can be used both indoors as well as outside. Rubber flooring resists dust, allergens and even water. This means that liquid spills will not damage the floor surface. Because of its high resistance, mold and fungi will not be able to anchor to your floors either. You can sweep your playground floor, or wash it with a mild soapy solution. Never use harsh cleaning agents or chemicals.
Take a look at the surface of your play area as well. Most are filled with some type of loose material, such as sawdust, wood chips, or gravel. The thing with loose materials is that the more packed they get, the less padding they offer to a falling child. Make sure that the running around or the weather has not begun to pack it down, and every once in a while you may want to dig it up and turn it over a little bit to loosen it up.
We should put guardrails in elevated playgrounds to prevent falls. The guardrails and ladder rungs in playground equipment must be less than 3.5 inches or more than 9 inches so children will not get trapped in them.
Even as time goes by, you should always check around the playground and clean up a little bit, checking for trash or hard objects that may have been dropped. Even water puddles can be a danger as they may alter the consistency of the surface fill-not to mention harbor bacteria if the water stands too long.
