Our New Product Development team is committed to develop new play items and concepts to increase the technology and fun element of your structure.

A successful play area isn’t not just about the play structure - have you considered the following?

Reception area

  • Secure in and out system
  • Separate party VIP check in area to avoid confusion with other children
  • Access for wheelchairs and double buggies, ramps if needed.

Café area

  • Choose your flooring carefully, children are in socks most of the time
  • Choose furniture with round edges
  • Should be close enough so parents can get a drink whilst leaving their younger children
  • Not too close to your reception area

Party Rooms

  • Close to kitchen area, separate door to party rooms is ideal
  • Children's furniture is useful, carry on the theme of the play area into the party rooms
  • A special chair for the birthday host to sit in (e.g. throne)

Liability Insurance

  • We will advise you on all issues relating to your liability insurance. Certain items in the play frame carry a higher weighting with your insurance company.

To assist you, SPI Global Play can put you in touch with companies who offer liability insurance for the play industry.
