Important safety notice for HAGS UniPlay movable sand crane

August 2016

When the Swedish governmental consumer department made a market review in 2015, it was brought to attention that the movable sand crane dating from 1989-1999 are still in use.

The European play standard EN1176:1998 (implemented in 1999) state that V-shaped openings shall be tested with the head/neck probe. The V-shaped gap between the post and the sand crane arm is not compliant to the standards and could cause a risk of strangulation, as shown in the picture below.

 

How to design a great playscape

August 2016

The difference between a playground and a playscape

To many people a traditional “playground” suggests a somewhat man-made environment, perhaps a tarmac space outside a school building with coloured games painted on it or a fenced area on a housing estate with swings and climbing frame within it. These types of playgrounds have their place and can be designed to be attractive places that serve their surrounding communities very well. They can be exciting, well used and much loved places.

Focus on meeting points

July 2016

Meeting points provide teenagers with a safe and inviting socialising space that they can claim as their own. Their stylish, open design fosters a sense of ownership and make older children feel valued; it also allows natural surveillance whilst minimising adult interference. Research has shown that offering adequate facilities specifically designed to meet the needs of older youths can help reduce anti-social behaviour and improve residents’ wellbeing.
