RESIDENTIAL PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT
There are 2 common types of playground equipment in the industry: residential & commercial. Residential grade playground equipment is designed and built for backyard settings. They don’t have the rigid safety standards for high use that commercial components address. This doesn’t mean its inferior, but rather that it’s not over-engineered. Residential playground equipment is not intended for public use. There are different safety standards, mounting requirements and age restrictions that apply to these settings.
Home playgrounds, as well as public playgrounds, are intended to be used under adult supervision. Many of the same activities are available for residential settings as commercial settings, e.g. schools, public parks. The following are common activities available or residential playground equipment:
Durability of the materials is one of the key differences in the types of equipment offered, which includes the thickness and types of materials used to construct the equipment.
Design differences: Residential playground equipment has some design differences, too, e.g. The ability for a swing to be mounted directly to a play structure. This is not recommended in a public setting due to the high likelihood of a catastrophic collision. Safety standards are common in both residential and commercial settings, but a residential playground environment will include parental supervision and a smaller capacity of children. Commercial playground environments will have a higher capacity, minimally supervised, and must account for a higher potential frequency and severity of accidental injuries.
