Many schools and other facilities with playgrounds have long realized the many advantages of using playground rubber flooring. As one of the top recycled rubber products, playground rubber is an excellent solution for areas where children are entertained. Rubber tiles are easy to install, and will keep kids safe while they are playing on the jungle gym, spinners, Merry Go Round, spring riders, swing sets, and other playground equipment.
When you are done, make sure to put away any toys that children have left strewn about or tools that an adult may have left out after doing any work. Chemicals left in the yard are always, of course, a huge no-no when kids are around, but it’s always a good idea to keep an eye out in case someone made a blunder-it does happen.
So, how do you build a safe playground? What are the factors to be considered when building a safe playground?
Letting young children play with structures designed for older kids is unsafe because the size and proportions are not right for them. Conversely, older children can get trapped in equipment designed for the younger ones.
Weather resistant – If the tires of your car can easily endure rain, snow, summer heat, hail and other weather conditions, so will your playground surface made from recycled rubber.
If you are not going to be around while children are playing, make sure that the playground, whether a public one or an activity center at their school, will have an adult around, keeping an eye on things. An adult can watch to make sure the kids aren’t being unsafe in their play. They also are responsible for taking care of the situation if something does occur, and the best adult supervision is someone who has some type of first aid training.
