For businesses and facilities that are geared towards the Family Entertainment Centers (FEC), choosing the right manufacturer and supplier for the children’s playground is essential not only in terms of durability and safety but also for the commercial success of the establishment that brands itself as a child friendly environment for the family.
In the selection process, business owners and decision makers must invest time in knowing the playground company through research based on their reputation, company history and successful projects. The completed projects itself must also be taken into consideration as the quality of design, material and safety standards are proof of quality that speaks beyond marketing.
When you’ve decided to go out and find a manufacturer / supplier for your playground project, the following criteria for evaluation are to be considered:
Industry Standards for Manufacturing Quality – While manufacturing standards may vary within regions and countries based on regulatory commissions, safety standards remain constant and it may vary within material specification, recommended assembly specifics as pointed out by the best practices within the industry and the in-house quality assurance by the company during the manufacturing and assembly stage.
Creativity & Marketability – When it comes to business and facility branding, the creativity of the company when it comes to the design and delivery of the playground project will affect your long-term marketing goals. While several playgrounds are built based on a manufactured template, the playground company must have the ability to design, develop and outfit the playground project based on a creative direction or a specified theme.
Durability and Safety – When it comes to children’s playgrounds, safety without compromise is a top priority. The manufacturer must have a meticulous quality assurance process that observes layers and stages of the development stage. Quality assurance does not end in the manufacturing phase as upon installation; the structure must also be tested and be cleared for safety as well as durability.
When you have shortlisted a number of vendors or manufacturers for your playground project, it is time to take a closer look at the projects and products of each vendor. It is a firsthand look at the actual work, delivery and design of the playgrounds. Below are several criteria to look for in the playground:
- Quality – The overall quality of the playground structure based on the practical and creative design.
- Material Safety – Ask about the materials used in developing the playground product, make sure that they are non-toxic and are built durable.
- Safety – Safety is paramount when it comes to playground products. By default, the playground must host a number of safety features:
- Built-in safety from railings to covered domes and durable walls
- Safety manual and precautions that will be supplied with the playground in the proper use of the facility.
- Maintenance procedures for long-term safety and integrity of the play structure
- Soft cushioning or padding elements included in the playground.
- Marketability – Is the playground featured in the news or is known as a local attraction?
