Choosing a playground company

Developing your playground is an exciting time, but we know it can be quite a challenge to choose the right playground company for you. You need to be able to trust the people you’re bringing into your play space and rely on them to get the job done to a high quality, on time and on budget.

We’ve been designing and installing playgrounds all over the UK for a long time, so we know what works and what doesn’t. Here are some of our key pointers to help you choose your playground company.

Check for quality

A reputable playground company will have accreditations to prove they’re committed to quality. Key accreditations to look out for in the playground industry are: Constructionline, CHAS, API Play, ROSPA, FSPA. The company should also be registered with the International Standards Agency under standard ISO 9001.

Image Playgrounds is proud to have received all of these accreditations. We work hard to ensure we deliver the best possible equipment.

Experienced manufacturers

When looking for a playground company you can trust, experience goes a long way. Look for a company who has been in business for many years and who has a wealth of case studies of their recent builds.

Safety conscious

The safety of the children using your playground needs to come above all else. Make sure your playground company is clear on how they protect children’s safety with their equipment and surfacing.

Maintenance advice

Your playground company should offer clear maintenance advice. You can increase the lifespan of your playground with regular maintenance and ensure the continued safety of everyone who uses it.

Imaginative equipment

Spend time looking at the quality of the equipment on offer. Your playground company needs to offer fun, imaginative equipment that can be tailored to your needs.

At Image Playgrounds, we’re always developing new equipment based on the suggestions that we receive. Just take a look at the fantastic Hagrid Hut we created for a school in Essex and our recent bespoke playground designs.
