Child Capacity and Age

While browsing our site you will notice each play structure has a designated age range, child capacity and safety use zone. Answering two key questions will help determine the ideal play structure for your project.

  • How many kids will be playing on the playground at one time?
  • What ages are the kids that will be playing on the playground?

Our play structures for children between the ages of 2 and 5 offer a variety of details and additions like short ladders, ramps and platforms for safe crawling, grasping and exploring. Smaller grips and appropriately placed railings accommodate hands and bodies too.

If your playground is for ages 5-12 years old...

Children in this age group need lots of activity. We introduce climbers, slides, swings, sliding poles and horizontal bars so they can climb and hang and zoom back to ground level so they can do it all again.
