Tips Regarding Playground Equipment Repair and Maintenance
Playgrounds are designed for the youngest members of our communities to enjoy, and as such, they should be just as safe as they are fun. Here are some tips for repairing your playground equipment and keeping your play area in good condition for the safety of the kids who play there.
Care for the surrounding grounds. It’s important to watch for environmental hazards and maintain a clean playground environment. You should inspect your playground and equipment each day for issues such as broken glass, rubbish, and other dangerous items. Also, keep an eye out for natural hazards, such as standing water, exposed tree roots, and sharp branches.
Keep up with equipment maintenance. You’ll need to ensure that all play equipment complies with safety standards to minimise the risk of injury. You should inspect your equipment regularly to check for potential hazards, such as sharp edges, unsecured moving parts, and general wear and tear. Check metal equipment for rust and wooden equipment for splinters, as well.
Work with playground maintenance companies to ensure safety. There’s no substitute for having playground maintenance professionals inspect your equipment for safety and compliance and perform any needed repairs. At PlayCare, we provide a range of services, including playground inspections, compliance testing, and equipment and surfacing repairs and maintenance.
Benefits of Playground Resurfacing
What’s under your playground equipment matters as much as the equipment itself. Kids fall, and the right playground surface can be the difference between a minor scare and a serious injury. If your playground’s “ground” leaves a lot to be desired, here are a few reasons to think about upgrading now.
A higher degree of safety. Modern playground surfaces are designed with accidents in mind. New Softfall surfaces cushion falls and last longer than older or less stable materials, such as tiles and rolled surfaces. These newer options will never compact or shift, even in high traffic areas, and they are easier to keep clean as well.
Endless design options. Whether you prefer a traditional blacktop, specific colours, or a fun design, we can do it. For example, you might choose school colours for a school playground, or bright, eye-catching designs for a public play area. You could use separate colours for pathways or separate playground areas, too. We’ll make your ideas reality, tailored to the size, shape, and needs of your playground.
Environmental consciousness. New playground materials are environmentally safe, coming from recycled materials and keeping more waste out of landfills. Recycled tyres and other materials are combined with non-toxic binding agents to form a semi-solid substance that’s easy to pour, drains quickly after rain, and helps protect the environment overall.
