A note to our Customers:
It is important for us to remember how important free play on recreational equipment is for the development of a child. The split second decisions a child makes as he or she traverses the play events on a playground or strategizes in a game teach problem solving skills. This in turn hones a child's risk taking skills, developing a sense of resilience, independence, self awareness, self confidence and positive self esteem - invaluable traits for all us.

"Risky Play Encourages Resilience"
As we face the reopening of schools, child care centers and public recreational spaces for use during the Pandemic, we are being bombarded by an ever-evolving litany of how, when, where or whether surfaces used by children should be disinfected to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
There are many resources available that discuss what can be accomplished by routinely cleaning or disinfecting recreation equipment (playgrounds/ fitness/ gymnasium equipment, etc)
We have taken this opportunity to provide you with some of these online resources that discuss this topic from various Industry Leaders and from the CDC to help you ascertain what plan of action might be the best for your unique situation.
