By becoming a Certified Playground Safety Inspector I am now equipped with the knowledge needed to help with the purchase of one of our new or existing playgrounds, from start to finish.
Lexington, VA (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
ParknPool has expanded their existing line of commercial playgrounds by adding twenty-two (22) new playgrounds. As a leading online and catalog distributor of commercial grade outdoor furniture and site amenities such as picnic tables, trash receptacles, park benches, bleachers and playgrounds, ParknPool recognizes the need to offer their clients quality products that can be relied on. The new selection of playgrounds will help fit everyone’s needs and are manufactured with several activities designed to challenge and encourage the physical, social and mental development of children up to age twelve (12).
Good outdoor playgrounds are designed in such a way that children’s play can be fully expressed, and they should include various engaging activities. ParknPool has added these new playground structures to their already extensive selection of preschool and school age playgrounds in order to help encourage the importance of outdoor play for young children. Our culture is taking outdoor play away from children through excessive TV and computer use, unsafe neighborhoods, and the elimination of school recess. With outdoor playgrounds, children are able to make a mess, run, jump and hide; they can shout whistle and explore the natural world.
Most of ParknPool’s new and existing playground units meet American Disability Act (ADA) Accessible Guidelines for buildings and facilities. One result of ADA access guidelines is to incorporate ways to create play opportunities close to the ground to give physically challenged children a way to easily get onto the playground system to enjoy the fun.
There are several factors to consider when choosing the perfect playground for any outdoor area. Along with the addition of these twenty-two (22) new playgrounds, ParknPool has also learned the safety regulations to help children travel to and from the playground, to identify any potential hazards near the play area, what components will be affected by sun exposure and what visual barriers on the unit will interrupt the line of sight of supervising the children at play. They have also compiled a playground safety guide as well as a guide that contains information on playground fundraising and budgeting. In addition, they also have a Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) on staff. “There is a lot that goes into installing a playground and one of the major factors is safety,” explained Chris Lopez, ParknPool’s CPSI. “By becoming a Certified Playground Safety Inspector I am now equipped with the knowledge needed to help with the purchase of one of our new or existing playgrounds, from start to finish.”
ParknPool seeks to ensure that their clients have the best chance to find what they need. Since adding playgrounds to their commercial product line and witnessing the need for these units, they made the decision to expand upon this category. They strive to offer their clients the best selection of outdoor amenities and unmatched customer service. ParknPool achieves this by exceeding expectations while enhancing their clients’ earnings.
