Finding the right playground equipment for your school can be a tough ask. To ensure you’re piecing together a playground that’s beneficial in both a playful and developmental sense, actually takes a little more brain power than most might think.

Not only do you need to find the right supplier, but you’ll also need to factor in consideration such as age, space, zoning and much more. Thankfully, we’ve listed a few general factors for you to look at that should help get you started. If after reading this, you still have some questions that need answers, simply contact us at Sovereign Play Equipment, where our team will be more than happy to help you.

1. User Age

The general age of your intended users will of course have a huge impact on the type of equipment you look to install. While we may offer a very wide variety of equipment, it’s best to remember that some equipment will be aimed at a younger audience while others will be aimed at slightly older children.

You’ll need to choose equipment that caters to your intended general age. If however, you intend on creating a playground that caters to a variety of ages – while this may be difficult, it isn’t impossible.

This may however be an area where our team could help you the most, creating a bespoke style playground that will help cater to the variety in ages you need it for.

2. Available Space

This will be a hugely important factor to consider, as you’ll need to decide just how much equipment you can fit into your playground area, with of course the necessary space between each piece of equipment – otherwise known as safety space.

Do you have a large open space or are we dealing with an area that’s a little more compact? Do we need to make the most of what we have? While smaller playgrounds may take some work, they can still provide a nourishing and enriching area for children. Again, our team is very adept at making the most of every space.

3. Budget

As with everything in life, it always comes down to budget. Having a clear cut idea in mind about how much you can spend will help make your choices a lot easier to make. Not only will you have a rough idea of just how many pieces you can have in the available space but you’ll then be able to prioritise those pieces.
