American Playground Company has a crew of experienced and certified installers to ensure your playground, surfacing, sports equipment and everything else is installed accurately and safely. Our goal is to provide a safe, affordable, and fun playground or recreational area for communities to enjoy for a lifetime.

Our installation is completed by experienced professionals. Often times, installation of equipment may require large machinery, as well as poured-in-place surfacing, and heavy materials. It is important to be aware of the limitations that may come from these factors, and in order to avoid injury or damage, having a professional installation is always your safest bet. American Playground Company is certain that our installation process is done correctly by giving every aspect of the equipment close attention with the upmost efficiency.

Types of Installation

Full Installation

A full installation by American Playground Company is a complete professional installation of all parts of the equipment by certified installers. The experienced installer will assemble the equipment based on specifications and is responsible for all components of install. Full installation will meet or exceed standards of care.

Community Build Installation

A community build installation is when members of a community volunteer their time to build a playground, with experienced professional supervision. Community builds save on the cost of installation.

Customer Installation

The customer is 100% responsible for the installation of all equipment. This can save costs on installation, but be aware that there are safety precautions that need to be met in order to have up-to-code equipment.

After installation, a playground needs to be audited. An audit is the initial comprehensive assessment of the equipment and surrounding areas to ensure the overall safety of the structure. Inspections and routine maintenance are also an important aspect of post-installation safety. To regularly maintain your playground or recreational equipment, the structures and area should be regularly inspected and any hazards should be reported.

If American Playground Company installs your playground, structures or other equipment, we will keep records of the installation including:

  • Established and maintained detailed installation records
  • Audit and inspection records
  • Maintenance records
  • Repair records

Regardless if we, yourself, or someone else installs your equipment, you should keep records of these documents, as well.
