Q: Do the colours fade on the plastic products?

A: All plastic playground products we sell are U.V. stabilized to extend their life. However, some fading is to be expected when exposed for extended periods to New Zealand's harsh sunlight, particularly with Red, so we do not sell many red plastic products, as they tend to fade the most noticeably.

We have compiled some useful Playground Safety Tips to make backyard playgrounds a fun and safe place for kids to play. For residential backyard playgrounds practicality and common sense applies!

Q: Will my playground accessories require any maintenance?

A: Yes! For residential playground equipment, we recommend regular inspection to make sure there is no damage, deterioration or loose connections or fasteners.
