Special Needs Equipment

When designing and approving your playground design it is critical to consider all types of special needs: physical, sensory, mental, emotional and social. Sensory stimulation can be achieved through the use of bright colours, signs, pictures and varying textures. Surfacing is a critical component of any playground, as you should aim to achieve two objectives simultaneously; provide adequate surfacing for potential falls as per CSA Standards, and improve accessibility for children in wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Poured-in-place synthetic surfacing, engineered wood fibre and rubber improve accessibility whereas sand and pea gravel may decrease accessibility.
