Looking at adding a commercial playset to your organization? If so, you are probably already aware that they can be a substantial investment. For that reason, it is important to get the best value for your money. That is why we have put together some tips to help you pick the right commercial playset for you.
Consider the Size of Your Organization
The first thing to consider is the size of your organization. How many children are you likely to have playing at a single time? Is that number likely to grow in the future? With that information, you can decide how many children need to be able to use the playset at one time. Those numbers can help guide your purchasing decisions.
Think About Ages
What age of children will be using the playset? If you have a preschool, then the children using your playset are going to be younger. However, if you have a church or community organization, you might expect children from toddlers to teens. In that case, you want versatile play equipment that is appropriate for children of all ages.
Think About Space
Where are you going to place the playset? Measure the available space you have for the playset. That will help you guide you to playsets that will fit in that space with the proper clearance for safety.
What Do You Want
The most affordable playset options start with a basic swing set or slide. However, there are so many other options available. What type of play do you want to encourage? Do you have a theme you want for the playset? We can add different accessories designed to encourage different types of imaginative play.
Depending on your organization, you may need your playset to be compatible with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). Even if you are not governed by the law, it is a good idea to have some accessible play equipment. Many of our playsets can incorporate ground-level equipment, wheelchair-friendly swings, and other ADA compliant accessories.
There are three main options for commercial playsets: vinyl, wood, and metal. Vinyl is lower maintenance and longer lasting than the other two options. While it may require a larger investment initially, it will cost much less to own in the long run. Plus, vinyl is safer. It does not get splinters, it does not get as hot in the sun, and it does not have sharp edges that can cut kids.
