There are several different types of playground inspection services which can be carried out by site staff or external consultants according to RoSPA standards. These must be done for all parts of the recreational area including equipment, fencing, surfacing, furniture and any other features. Routine inspections are done on a regular basis to check for any recent damage through vandalism or general wear and tear. The frequency of these checks will vary depending on the dimensions on site and how often it is used, but once a week should be set as a minimum.
Your own staff can carry out an operational inspection for a more detailed look into the workings of the apparatus to check if any repairs or spare parts might be required. Annual inspections follow the most thorough procedures for testing safety and should be done by an independent consultant. This process looks at risk assessments, long term wear, structural stability, vandalism and design practice. The overall aim is to ensure complete satisfaction with the quality of any play features and safety flooring like wetpour.

For children’s recreational facilities , a number of safety flooring designs can be installed. One of the most popular specifications is EPDM rubber wetpour which provides an impact absorbing landing surface. We are able to complete tests for this surfacing to be certain it meets the correct Critical Fall Height for any climbing structures in the area. Other assessments like slip tests can also be carried out to ensure full compliance for use in wet weather. Once play area tests have been completed for surfacing or equipment, it’s vital to implement a regular maintenance schedule. This can be determined by the test results so you’ll know you are applying appropriate cleaning and repair works. Our team can complete a professional maintenance service including repairs and spare parts for a range of playground features.
