It is the element that can not be missed from any playground, besides having many areas of application, but the most important is that in any situation, the center is fun and play!
But how is the good slider?
It is important to keep in mind that the intended product will be used indoors or outdoors. The ones produced for the exterior are good for the interior, but the opposite is not always true. Interior fabrics may discolour, break, or weaken if exposed to sunlight or freezing during winter.
It should also be considered if this play instrument is to be used in a private garden, or it will be accessible to many children, that is to say, in a playground on the public domain. In this case, the slogans that are only certified for residential use are not good because they are designed only for use by several children under the close supervision of parents or attendants.
At public playgrounds, where they can be accessed by anyone, a much more massive construction is needed not only because of the intense flow of children but also because they can be used contrary to the instructions (climbing on a bicycle , with the scateboard, etc.) or there is danger of vandalism. In such situations, you must choose the slide that is certified for public use.
These are generally made of stainless steel, fiberglass reinforced polyester, or double-skinned polyethylene with rotational technology.
The correct size
When choosing a size, we have to consider the following parameters: child's age, available space and starting height. For children under the age of 3, we recommend slides with a starting height of less than 1 m, they can be bought together with the ladder, they can be easily mounted and are also affordable. If we want to buy a child over 3 years of age, then we have a lot of possibilities and variants. For example, curved slider, spiral slider, water slide, etc. Fantasy is just the space for the game! Because for safe use, it is recommended to leave 1-1 m on both sides, and 2 m in the landing area.
The starting height, or in other words, the height of the settlement is important to be respected, that the slope angle is not too large, that it can be dangerous and not too small, in which case it may become too boring for the children.
The starting height is always specified for each product in the product description.
It is very important to put the safety of your children and your children first, hopefully you will choose the loved slide with our advice described above.
