Far from being child’s play, finding the right playground equipment can be a difficult decision with so many different suppliers and styles of equipment to choose from.
When choosing playground equipment, one of the first things you’ll need to do is to find the right supplier. In order to do so, there are a number of different factors you’ll need to consider. Start by doing some online research once you have narrowed down your potential list of suppliers, looking at previous customer reviews. By looking at reviews from people who have already used these companies you can gain a general idea of the quality of their products, their service, and overall reputation.
There are, of course, some more general factors that you’ll have to take into consideration in order to find the right playground equipment to suit your needs.
Age of Intended Users
Whether you are looking to purchase playground equipment for a school or for private use on your property, you have to keep in mind the age of the group the equipment is intended for. While our wide range of equipment caters to a variety of ages, not every piece of equipment will be suitable for every age so it’s a good idea to narrow down your search to products that will be suitable for the children who will be using it.
Choosing equipment that will appeal to a variety of ages can be more difficult, but not impossible. In this case, investing in a
bespoke playground could be the right choice for you.
Another important determining factoring in choosing the right playground equipment is the amounts of available space you have for it to sit on. Despite what you might think, not all playground equipment requires a lot of space, and many of our items will easily fit into a back garden. However, knowing exactly how much available space you have will help you narrow
down your search as you can eliminate equipment that will be far too big to fit into the designated area. Don’t forget to also take safety space into account, as you will have to allow room for safety surfacing to protect children from any impact, should they fall from the equipment.
Personal preference should also play a part in your final decision; both your own and that of the children who will be using the equipment. There are many different types of playground available from monkey bars to swings and everything in between, so it’s important that you choose one that will be enjoyed and well-used.
