How Can Safety Be Ensured Whilst Using Playground Sports Equipment? 

Ensuring children’s safety is our top priority, therefore we put in place several measures before, during and after installation: 

  • Age-appropriate equipment: We ensure that the playground sports equipment provided is suitable for the age and development stage of the students. 
  • Safe surfaces: We use impact-absorbing surfaces such as rubber, wood chips or synthetic turf beneath the equipment.
  • Proper installation: We install the playground equipment according to the manufacturer’s specifications and industry safety standards.
  • Regular inspections: Routine inspections are conducted to identify any signs of wear and tear, damage or potential hazards.
  • Maintenance and repairs: We promptly address any issues identified during inspections, and repair or replace damaged equipment.

Can Playground Sports Equipment be Customised or Adapted to Accommodate Disabilities? 

Yes, playground sports equipment can be customised or adapted to accommodate children with disabilities and promote inclusivity to ensure that all students can participate in physical activities. 

Here are some ways we would customise a playground: 

  • Adaptive sports equipment: This can include specialised basketball hoops with lower rims or modified tennis and badminton racquets for children with visual or mobility impairments. 
  • Ground-level activities: We can include ground-level activities such as sensory gardens or wheelchair-accessible sand tables. 
  • Accessible swings: We can install swings with supportive seats or harnesses that accommodate children with mobility impairments.
