Playgrounds and Playground Equipment

Safe Playgrounds and Peace of Mind

Child safety is one of the most important things for any parent – especially at the playground. Our experts inspect and audit children’s playgrounds and playground equipment at schools, kindergartens, and public facilities. We identify possible defects, help remove possible dangers, and provide tips on how to maintain playground equipment properly – from swings to teeter totters. We check how safe equipment is in compliance with DIN EN 1176 norm. And we also provide education on “safety at children’s playgrounds” – training your employees as playground safety specialists.
