My equipment gets a bit slippy in the rain, how do I prevent this?


Naturally when it rains your playground equipment will become slippy, therefore extra care needs to be taken if children are to play in these conditions. You can help to limit how slippy the equipment gets by regularly checking and cleaning it. This is particularly recommended if your equipment is positioned underneath trees, as an algae residue can form on the equipment making it slippy. Simply wash this off with soap and water and keep on top of it to help reduce the problem. If you would like some more advice please contact our Technical Department.
