Warlick Family YMCA indoor playground.   Gastonia, North Carolina

Feedback & Testimonials

"World Play Solutions installed play systems in our new Warlick Family YMCA in Gastonia, NC at the end of 2017.  Daniel Brenman had been our planning partner since we began the project and worked by my side to help develop a world class play area for school age children at our Y.  

The YMCA has struggled to keep the attention and even membership of families with children over the age of 7 due to limited age appropiate interactive play elements for years.  World Play Solutions provided the best option for our children to climb, slide, push, pull, roll, and glide through a 24 foot tall climbing center and slide.  The families are flocking to our Y to be a part of it and the children do not want to leave the Adventure Center due to the incredible work by Daniel and his team.

Many thanks for the innovation, thought, caring, hard work and final product!  We love World Play Solutions!!!

Tony Sigmon, CEO 

Gaston County Family YMCA"

Soft Contained Play Equipment / Indoor Playgrounds

Soft Contained playgrounds have proven to be a safe environment for children by providing them with a space where they can freely play, eliminating the risk of falls from raised heights, as well as potential injuries from protrusions and sharp edges. 


SAFETY 

Safety is of critical importance and always a top priority in our designs. Safety is of paramount importance and is critical when designing any play area. It is something that WORLD PLAY SOLUTIONS embraces as part of promoting safe play.  We adhere to all the strictest guidelines established by industry organizations such as ASTM, CSA and CPSC, as well as the most strict European regulations, EN1176, EN117.  


MAXIMIZING PLAY

WORLD PLAY SOLUTIONS has incorporated some unique play elements that are specifically designed to offer the greatest amount of diversity in the play experience. A good design should offer equal opportunity for gross and fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, pretend play, sensory enhancement and social play opportunities. 


MAXIMIZING VISIBILITY

Visibility is critical to your number one customer, Parents.  Good, visible design dictates a smooth combination of great open play opportunity with just enough enclosed plastic to be fun yet still highly visible from all viewing angles. 


ACCESIBILITY & ADA

You must have the ability to accompany, access, respond and remove a child from the apparatus. Your client must be able to get to every point within the equipment themselves or with very little assistance. This builds confidence. WORLD PLAY SOLUTIONS has considered these elements. All systems WORLD PLAY SOLUTIONS designs and manufactures meet all latest A.D.A regulations and Standards.

IN-HOUSE INSTALLATION TEAM

  

The installation process is a critical component of any indoor playground project. The quality of installation will affect the quality of the finished indoor playground.  If the playground is improperly installed -- no matter how high the quality of the play equipment is - the ultimate safety of the indoor playground can be greatly compromised.


WORLD PLAY SOLUTIONS has an IN-HOUSE team of highly experienced and skilled professional installers. Our installation technicians each have several years of playground installation experience.  Our installers have themselves installed MANY hundreds of indoor playgrounds all over the world, have strict procedures and adhere to the highest standards — helping to ensure our playgrounds are safe, durable, visually appealing and easy to maintain. 


Our professional  IN-HOUSE installation team will be our first guarantee of installation quality.  In comparison, many of the other suppliers do not have their own installation workers but instead sub-contract the installation jobs to others and thus they are not able to control the quality of the installation as closely as World Play Solutions can. 


**We consider our IN-HOUSE installation team to be a distinct and powerful competitive advantage, and of course a great benefit to our valued clients.**



PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY

WORLD PLAY SOLUTIONS carries specific Product Liability coverage on everything we do. We will be happy to provide you with insurance certificates upon request. 


  

MATERIALS  &  IMPORTANCE OF PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT QUALITY 

It goes without saying that children’s safety should be the top priority in any playground.  And having high quality equipment utilizing the highest quality materials is the first important step towards ensuring safety.


In the long run, having high quality indoor playground equipment also helps to greatly reduce maintenance costs and ensure long-term profitability. Low quality equipment, on the other hand, will inevitably require frequent servicing which can in turn, cause an otherwise profitable business to lose money. Having low quality products can lead to safety issues which can cause valued playground visitors to lose trust in the playground facility. 


At first glance, all indoor playgrounds may look quite similar but look closer and you will discover very significant differences in quality among them. What actual materials are being utlilized?   WORLD PLAY SOLUTIONS materials include:


Tuff Skin Post Padding  A durable solution to cover the steel components and soften the structure’s hardest parts. Tuff Skin is so durable that it reduces the wear and tear from everyday use. This is a very important feature.  With Tuff-Skin Post Padding, choking hazards are eliminated as children cannot pick hard enough to pull the padding from under the vinyl-dipping. 


Heavy 1” Box Net (Second level) A nylon fabric net used in areas that are not accessible for climbing. This larger netting is pulled tight between the grids keeping children safely encased on upper levels of your playground. 


Low Maintenance, Durable Play

World Play Solutions  emphasis for the main play structure is in utilizing highly durable, low maintenance plastics, high-quality, vandal-resistant Tuff Skin post padding and netting, and durable soft foam decking with industrial 18 oz true vinyl. The resulting design offers easy maintenance and upkeep, while maximizing play value for your guests.
