Rooftop Playground Project
An elementary school in Tallahassee, FL, for example, came to us with a unique need. The school was located in a building with no outdoor space for a playground but desperately needed one installed. After careful planning and consideration, we created a truly one of a kind play area– over thirty feet in the air!
This project created so many unique obstacles and challenges that needed to be overcome, but our team of experts was up to the task.
This school playground installation includes:
- 2 large commercial playground units
- 1 large craggy climber
- 3 stand and spins
- 7000 square feet of poured in place rubber surfacing
- 1900 square foot area of artificial turf
- Running track around the field area
Safety is our number one priority. Since this playground is located thirty feet off the ground and that much closer to the sun, this project took careful consideration in terms of safety inspection and planning.
Special safety considerations included:
- A proprietary mounting method to allow for a strong and sound enough connection for the equipment
- A special no climb fence
- A unique sail shade system, using custom mounting brackets
- Compliance with Florida’s stringent wind load requirements.
School playgrounds are essential for increased physical activity and academic achievement back in the classroom.
