Playground safety is our number one priority at Advanced Recreational Concepts. Our products meet all ASTM testing requirements and conform to all safety guidelines and standards. Our design consultants are playground experts that will work with your team to establish not only the color design of your vision, but also:

  • Define the age range – playgrounds can be designed for toddlers (ages 6-23 months), preschool children (ages 2-5 years), grade school children (ages 5-12), or all ages
  • Types of play events – playgrounds should offer a variety of play activities and zones; you decide what to include and what not to incorporate
  • Accessibility – the ADA clearly defines site standards for playground equipment and we adhere to all requirements with appropriate ramps and curb access
  • Safety Surfacing – safety surfaces must meet ASTM testing requirements for falls and can be constructed from a variety of approved materials
  • Site Furnishings – a complete playground environment should include adequate seating for adults and consider trash receptacles, shade structures, and other amenities
