Inflatable Playgrounds: Natural Evolution
Inflatable playgrounds are the next big thing. They are now considered a natural evolution of active leisure activities for children and adults. Like trampoline parks they offer various activities and obstacles to keep users entertained, and user flow is similar with paid entrance in 1 hour slots. However, like any active leisure activity there are inherent risks. Compared to common inflatable play equipment (which mainly target young children) the typical use case of inflatable playgrounds is different due to size, variation in activities and the wider age range of participants. To provide a safe inflatable playground to users, active risk management is required.
As a former inaugural inspector for TUV Netherlands of a.o. inflatables, triple R’s Eljoh Sneep is well versed in relevant Standards like EN14960. Combined with extensive knowledge and insights of risk assessment in innovative installations and user behaviour of all ages in a variety of use cases this provides an optimal background to help shape safe inflatable playground operation from the start.
Even though there is no specific manual or Standard for safe inflatable playground operation there is no need to “re-invent the wheel”. Our extensive tailor-made risk analysis combined with relevant knowledge from associated activities will allow you to Do It Right, right from the start. This will significantly reduce your learning time, resulting in major savings in operational expenses.
Let us assist you in defining and fulfilling your needs. Our extensive knowledge of EN14960 provides a foundation for this specific leisure activity, the all-encompassing approach provides tools and structures to identify and manage user risks before they lead to accidents.
From design to operation, triple R assists in providing a fun and safe experience that makes kids and adults come back for more.
