ADA-Compliant Playground Equipment
If you have a commercial playground, investing in ADA-compliant playground equipment is essential. ADA-compliant means you need to have play equipment and a space that people with limited mobility who are in wheelchairs and other mobility devices can access.
Why Comply with ADA Rules?
In the 1980s, the American Disabilities Act (ADA) was created to ensure that Americans with disabilities are able to access public spaces. The act was updated in 2010, with further regulations on accessible play spaces. Failure to comply with the ADA requirements can result in fines or legal action, so it’s important to make sure the equipment you choose is ADA compliant.
Having accessible and inclusive playground equipment is one of the best benefits you can offer to the community you serve. Accessibility and inclusion ensure that children and caregivers with disabilities are able to access your space and enjoy the thrill of play.
