Important: Read Terms and Conditions
 (http://playgroundideas.org/content/basic-page/terms-use) or use o thesematerials beore commencing construction- they contain, among other things,important inormation about the risksinvolved in construction o playgroundequipment and the limits o PlaygroundIdea’s liability. Designs and equipmentmade based on this website do notconorm to any standard, law or regulation.
Please note:
 These Materials are oered as concepts only, tobe used in close conjunction with
1
Your local playground saety standards/guidelines (as some o these ideas may notbe suitable in your location).
2
Your local experienced builders, engineers,and/or NGO’s (as materials, constructionstyles and cultural norms will be unique inyour location). It is your responsibility toensure that the playground equipment youconstruct complies with the relevant laws,regulations or standards in your location.Lastly, maintenance o equipment is extremelyimportant; any material will degrade overtime, especially with heavy use rom children,so maintenance over time is as important tochildren’s saety as the initial construction toreduce the inherent risks o a playground.In locations where no standard applies,please reer to our saety manual at www.playgroundideas.org and the Public PlaygroundSaety Handbook prepared by the US ConsumerProduct Saety Commission (http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/325.pd) and the United Statestechnical perormance standards that relate toplaygrounds.
