“Providing the installation and initial inspection of our playground units gives ParknPool the upper hand in playground safety. The installation process is something that is not always thought about when purchasing a playground unit.
Lexington, VA (PRWEB) August 24, 2012
Since 2011, ParknPool has offered a line of standard and ADA accessible playground units as part of their extensive selection of outdoor furniture and site amenities. Good outdoor playgrounds are designed in such a way that children’s play can be fully expressed, and they most often include various engaging activities. Each of ParknPool’s playground units has several activities designed to challenge and encourage the physical, social and mental development of children up to age twelve. Kids will be inspired and energized with the ladders, climbers, activity panels and slides incorporated into their playground systems.
There are several factors to consider when choosing the perfect playground for any outdoor area. Along with adding playgrounds and learning the safety regulations involved with the selling, installing and maintaining of school age and preschool age playgrounds, ParknPool is now offering the service of tearing down your existing unit and installing your brand new replacement playground system.
According to the ASTM Standards for Public Playgrounds, more than 200,000 children are treated in hospital Emergency Room’s each year for playground-related injuries. Having a new playground system properly installed will contribute to the reduction of playground-related deaths and injuries. When installing a playground, it is important to use equipment and hardware approved by the manufacturer, and to follow the installation instructions very carefully. Hiring an educated and certified playground installer is the safest way to ensure your new playground system is properly installed to meet all safety regulations and requirements.
After the playground is installed by a ParknPool installation expert, a thorough inspection will be performed before the first use and periodic inspections of excessive wear, deterioration and any potential hazards should be scheduled routinely. These inspections will check for broken equipment, cracks in plastic, loose anchoring, hazardous debris, surfacing problems, vandalism and any other maintenance issues. John Good, ParknPool’s General Manager, explains, “Providing the installation and initial inspection of our playground units gives ParknPool the upper hand in playground safety. The installation process is something that is not always thought about when purchasing a playground unit. ParknPool wants to be there from start to finish, making sure children are 100% safe!”
