Playground Tips Sand boxes should always be covered when not used. Not only is it mandatory, but if you don't do it, it might turn into a litter box. When choosing a sand box cover, make sure that the top is porous, so water does not accumulate on it, making it difficult to remove. A good cover is also weighted at the edge so it stays in place.

Playground Tips Shredded Rubber that is in the form of rubber nuggets provides great impact attenuation, but it is not recommended for kids younger than two years old.

Playground Tips To extend the life of your poured in place rubber surface, apply a top coat when you see loose granules all over the surface. It will extend the life of your surface.

Playground Tips Before your playground gets inspected or audited, it helps to have the paperwork on your playground ready for the inspector. An equipment list, manufacturer name, etc. would help the auditor and saves time.

Playground Tips Drainage is vey important to the shelf life of safety surfacing materials. Poor drainage can lead to water pooling, a worse freeze and thaw cycle, and speeds up the deterioration of non organic surfacing and decomposition of organic ones. Make sure you address drainage issues before you install safety surfacing materials.

Playground Tips Make sure that the playground installers you deal with are appropriately insured. This means: proper liability insurance, proper vehicle insurance, and proper workman's comp insurance. You should also make sure they are cerfied playground installers or CPSI's. This is one of the best ways to insure your playground equipment will be installed to code.

Wonderful service and attention to detail. Hal not only anticipated all our concerns and questions, but his answers shed more light on the options we had for our site. The installation was on time, and flawless. Michael, the head of the installation team, made sure the area leading to the site was safe before they started. I appreciated that.
