1,What should pay attention when parents choose the climbing climbing structure .

(1)Make sure the climbing structures are right for your child’s age and stage of development.

(2)Make sure your child can reach and climb equipment on his own.

(3)Look for proper surfaces:

l Good playground surfaces use sand, wood chips and synthetic (man-made) materials—such as shredded rubber—that are soft. These materials will help absorb a child’s fall.

l The fill should be deep and loose. For preschool equipment, the fill should be at least 15 cm (6 inches) deep. The fill should be at least 30 cm (12 inches) deep for full sized equipment.

l Grass, dirt, asphalt or concrete are not safe surfaces for playground equipment.

(4)Check that the equipment has strong handrails and barriers to help prevent falls.

Equipment should be firmly anchored in the ground.

Make sure there is no garbage, glass or animal feces on or around the equipment.

Swing seats should be made of a soft material like plastic – not wood or metal.

Quality materials play a huge role in keeping the climbing structure on its feet and keeping its users safe. In the long-run, a playset that will hold up to use and be relatively easy to maintain will have the following three characteristics:

 

2,You should choose solid cedar climbing structure

In their safety guidelines for backyard play equipment, the CPSC recommends cedar as the structural base for residential playsets. Solid Pacific cedar beams are less likely to collapse, because cedar as a species is naturally strong and resistant to fungus, decay and pest infestations. The wood can be pressure-treated to increase this strength.

 

Why are solid beams important? As opposed to glued multi-layered timbers with low durability, solid wood like the kind used in our Playground One® Playsets is chemical-free and much less prone to cracking and warping.

 

Also remember to look for a playset that features high-quality multi-beam joint connectors to hold the frame tightly.

 

Paired with the solid wood beams, this climbing structure will hold even the weight of an adult, and it is guaranteed to provide family fun for generations!

 

3, Grips and guards are important parts of choosing climbing climbing structure

Simply put, good play set grips will prevent falls on swings, steps, bars, ladders and other parts of the play set that need to support your child’s weight. Before purchasing, check the swing chains and make sure they are coated to make them easy to hold onto. Ensure that the coating will prevent pinching.

 

Ask your retailer whether the coating on swings, handles and bars will stay effective in any weather and not get too hot in the summer heat.

 

Additionally, look for well-designed guardrails and non-slip steps that will prevent falls.

 

4, Smooth surface is also important

If your play set is made of cedar, it will not splinter and crack as frequently as other types of wood, especially with the proper maintenance.

 

Take the time to look for galvanized bolt fasteners, and make sure they are coated well to prevent your children getting cut on sharp edges or injuring themselves on any bolt protruding out.

 

If there is a slide, look closely and make sure it is smooth all the way down, and that it does not have any protruding bolts. These could be painful and cause injury. By examining the slide ahead of time, you can ensure the safety that will allow your children to slide in a variety of positions without being injured. We also provide Castle Theme, Casual Theme, contact us now!
