When it comes to safety,
nothing is left to chance!

We care
about your safety

We conduct inspections every step of the way, from the drawing board to playstructure assembly on the playground:

Design

The structural integrity of our products is certified by a licensed engineer and an ACPL/CSA-certified inspector.

Production

Several tests are conducted at each step of production. An engineer belonging to the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec attests to product conformity and supervises our internal quality testing. Upon request, we may issue a certificate of compliance for any playstructure.

Prototyping

Each prototype undergoes a battery of tests to ensure compliance to the various applicable standards. We are a proud and certified member of IPEMA!

Installation

A team of professionals conducts the installation of playground equipment, according to our carefully-prepared plans and specifications and upon your approval. These documents follow best practices (and all standards!) and ensure on-site safety when observed to the letter.

This is why it’s possible to install your equipment yourself. We will provide you with detailed assembly instructions so that all playstructures meet the highest safety standards.

International Playground Manufacturer Association

IPEMA (International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association) is an international association of outdoor playground equipment manufacturers. It certifies the compliance of our equipment according to Canadian safety standard CSA-Z614 Children’s playspaces and equipment.

The particular importance of IPEMA is that it validates our compliance to the standard by using an independent laboratory that certifies each one of our parts.

We are certified members and our parts are in the certification process.
