Practical advise For Play Equipment Purchasers in API’s New Directory
Purchasers of play equipment will find invaluable advice in the Association of Play Industries’ (API) brand new membership directory.
The new 2013 directory provides a useful guide to the UK’s leading designers, manufacturers, installers, distributors and inspectors of outdoor and indoor play equipment and play safety surfacing.
The directory is a helpful resource for local authorities, schools, developers, house builders and other buyers of playgrounds and play spaces. It includes:
- Eight questions every buyer should ask their play space supplier: practical tips on what to ask for when scoping a playground project.
- Play surfacing: everything a purchaser needs to know about play safety surfacing, in plain jargon-busting English.
- Spotlight on play: the lowdown on the UK’s leading play organisations and how they can help.
- PlayFair at Saltex: a spotlight on the annual trade show dedicated to children’s play provision, showcasing latest innovations in play space design, products and construction.
- Be smart, be safe: the latest advice on play space inspection.
- Necessity is the mother of invention: a state-of-the nation address from the indoor play sector.
- A full list of approved members with contact details and web addresses.
API Vice Chairman Michael Hoenigmann says: “The API champions the vital role of play for children in our communities and, as such, encourages the highest standards amongst its membership. We urge purchasers to undertake rigorous due diligence when choosing a supplier and to insist on evidence of API membership for reassurance and peace of mind.
The API monitors its members’ financial stability through rigorous credit checking and regular financial performance monitoring. Meanwhile, our professional Code of Conduct means all members work to consistently high levels of performance, quality and safety. We trust play purchasers will find the new API directory a useful one-stop-shop when planning their next play project.”
