History and the Challenge

Sportsafe were contracted to look at the proposal for Paisley Primary School in Hull’s Key Stage 1 play area. This was due to an inspections condemning all the existing wooden play equipment, also the shrubs and overgrown area was making ‘safe contained play’ impossible for the children.

The Solution

Sportsafe were able to offer a complete solution including all groundwork’s, a new Twin Tower assembly with scramble nets and slide, Toadstools for the children to relax on., all contained in on all-weather Artificial Grass safety surface allowing year round play, high wear, outstanding drainage and a natural soft lawn feel to the play area.

The Outcome

All completed to full EN1176/77 safety specifications with impact absorbing shock pads underneath for CFH protection.

All works were completed and managed with a Sportsafe team to ensure a prompt and safe installation in time for the new term in September – and finished on Target and to plan. All the staff and pupils are delighted with their new KS1 play area, and much year round play awaits!

The Key Stage 1 adventure play area has been transformed. The finished product has totally met our expectations and, compared to other quotes, was good value for money. We went with Sportsafe UK, as work was guaranteed to be in-situ before the start of term and the company met the set deadlines.
The team were professional and polite throughout the works process and liaised well with all staff on site. Thank you.”
