Climbing playground equipment is by far the most popular type of apparatus. Climbing frames remain one of the most popular pieces due to their vast variety of shapes, sizes and challenges. From the traditional jungle gym to the web climbers, rock climbing walls and net traverse, there is something to keep children constantly entertained as well as helping them exercise without knowing it!
In a world full of digital advancement, it’s a privilege to access natural beauty and make the most of it. Playground structures in the modern times are more inclined towards installing different types of outdoor playground equipment. They do benefit kids in terms of maintaining physical health, but they aren’t as beneficial as natural playgrounds.
Some of the best surfaces are composed of some type of loose material. This may include sawdust, wood chips, gravel, or mulch. Rubber has also become a commonly used material, and it may come in the form of large mats or it may be shredded.
One has to study the place of playground. Gather information carefully, like how an adult can access the playground with their children, if commercial then you may wish to consider parking areas, surfacing or maybe even bike stands and shelters. Also you may wish to consider the weight of children at any given time, this of course will come into play when you have an initial design and structure of the playground, most good companies can accommodate to your regulated specifications, they are even there to help you with age limits, weight and size if need be.
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.
Second, always make allowance for more space. Therefore, the floor should extend to over six feet beyond the play area. If the fort is above 4ft, it would be a good idea to not leave the guard rails open. Keep them close together to disallow the kids from getting their head stuck in between them. For kids that are of school age, make sure that the railings are above thirty eight inches (38in) and finally make sure that you have enough space that can grow as your child grows.
