Playground Maintenance & Repairs
Keep your playground safe for children to enjoy, for years to come.
Playscape assists playground operators across the UK with routine maintenance and repair, to maximise the life of the play area and to ensure equipment and surfacing remains safe and compliant for as long as possible.
Playscape is RPII-certified (Register of Play Inspectors International) to carry out operational outdoor playground inspections.
Playscape designs, installs, inspects, maintains and repairs playgrounds across the UK. As such we are well-placed to advise on the safety and longevity of your playground, and are familiar with how popular playground equipment is impacted by wear and tear from regular use.
Our operational inspectors are fully trained in repairs and maintenance, meaning that minor issues can be identified and resolved during these inspections. We follow up each inspection with a report, which shares any suggested next steps and serves as evidence that you are taking the necessary measures to ensure the safety of your playground.
How often should playground equipment be inspected?
All playgrounds should have a minimum of an annual inspection, carried out by an RPII Certified Annual Inspector.
In addition, regular operational inspections should also be scheduled – these may be needed monthly or quarterly depending on local conditions, the manufacturers’ guidance, footfall, and other factors.
Get in touch with the Playscape team and we can advise how often operational inspections should be carried out for your specific playground.
Has a recent playground inspection flagged a need for a repair, or perhaps you’ve become aware of some broken equipment that you need fixing urgently?
If you’ve noticed something in your playground that is in need of repair
- You should restrict access to the damaged equipment/surface and surrounding areas.
- Contact a specialist such as Playscape – we will ask for photos and a description of the damage.
- Playscape will then provide an accurate quote and estimated lead time for repair.
