A Durable Playground Saves You Money

July 22, 2010

In these challenging budgetary times it is important to think about today’s costs as well as tomorrow’s. At Miracle we take pride in reducing costs by implementing durable, reliable equipment that needs little maintenance over time. We use heavy duty manufacturers and playground suppliers that have a long history in the business, so they know what it takes to get the job done right the first time. And don’t think these durable products are unattainable; we spend a great deal of time working with our product lines so that they are the best deals possible… so your project will be cost-effective in the long term and the short term.

The connections we use are secure and safe. The nuts, bolts, and rivets are steel and the equipment, as shown through design specs and experience, we receive from our suppliers are top-of-the-line. We look over our products so that we ensure we are giving clients equipment that won’t let them down. It would be unreasonable to say that issues don’t arise, such as extreme weather damage or vandalism, but we work with our clients to get these problems taken care of as fast as possible so that their sites are ready for use once again quickly. Offering spare parts is just the first part of making sure our clients are taken care of. We can also bring in the specialists that will get the job done right. These occasions are rare, but when they do happen, know that you have a solid backup plan.

To prevent unwanted damage from hazards such as vandalism, we offer security devices for your park or playground. These include the SONIC SCREEN Vandal Deterrent System from Miracle, a device that uses high frequency sounds to drive away young adults during high-crime night-time hours. This ready to install system, available for your new or existing site, is guaranteed to reduce vandalism by over 80%. In Europe, a similar system is being used and many times it has been shown to be 100% effective. Talk about reducing damages. So, go with durable, affordable products to start and if you think you need extra protections, let us know and we will hook you up with the best in the business in terms of easily attainable security equipment that will reduce your long term maintenance costs.

Stop Vandalism Today with the SONIC SCREEN… Save Money and Increase Community Pride!

November 17, 2009

Vandalism is a big problem in today’s public spaces. For places like parks and playgrounds, vandalism can restrain visitations from the surrounding community and instead invite more crime. For this reason, it is more important than ever to deter vandals and all others in that same ‘up to no good’ category. To combat this growing nuisance, Miracle Playsystems has made available the Sonic Screen Vandal Deterrent… This one of a kind technology in the US is proven to be 84-100% effective in deterring vandalism, and only Miracle has made it ready for you… Go on to Read More!

The Sonic Screen would protect this Playground...

This cutting-edge technology uses high-pitched, ultra-sonic frequencies to repel vandalizing youths. Anyone between the ages 13 to 25 will hear an inescapable, intolerable buzzing sound that is non-harmful but very effective… and will be driven away. This technology has been successfully used for over 20 years in Europe to eliminate loitering in front of convenience stores and other problem areas where loitering occurs. The trick is, the Sonic Screen can be activated at specific, high vandalism times—mainly at night—so that no well meaning youth will be bothered during the day. Also, motion sensor technology will turn on the Sonic Screen only when needed, allowing energy to be saved.

Building a New Park

Build Spaces that Benefit the Community

Build Spaces that Benefit the Community

The need for positive modifications to our cities is greater than ever.  Instead of putting in a new parking structure, how about building a new park?  Parks are advantageous to communities in many ways.  New jobs are created and insured through the creation of parks, as workers are needed for both construction and maintenance.  As all surely know, jobs are crucial for the wellbeing of the economy.  The production of a park can work well within the existing landscape to cut down on expenditures. 

For instance, water hungry grass can be reduced to being used in a few sports fields and some recreation areas and the usual grassy expanses of parks can be replaced with trails and bark areas to further decrease maintenance and water costs.  Reducing supply costs will leave more money for workers.   Open spaces like parks are places for activity and will increase the physical health of a community; creating more jobs will increase the economic health of a community.

Getting back to working within the landscape; there is no need to bulldoze the entire area.  Instead, landscape architects can use forward thinking design methods to incorporate the existing site characteristics into the new park in order to minimize construction costs.  In doing this, money is saved for future repairs/revisions and paying workers higher wages.  Landscape architects, urban planners, and city desginers may also have to stray from traditional park sites to find places for new parks.  But these are just some ideas.

Bark doesn't Require Much Upkeep

Use Surfaces that don't Require Much Upkeep

In building a new park, if a park had one soccer field or one baseball diamond and a few grassy areas past these, putting picnic tables on a large concrete floor under a shade structure, the need for costly water would be greatly reduced.  Also, construct a durable playground, one that utilizes methods to reduce maintenance supply fees, on a rubber or bark surface that doesn’t require much upkeep and additional money is saved, especially over the long term.  Then, use bark trails to form a series of loops around the whole site (fields, picnic area, and playground) for those who want to walk around.  By doing all of these things, parks can reduce expenses, while still providing jobs and a place to play.  All persons involved in the creation of parks must be particularly innovative in these challenging budgetary times for continued benefit of our communities.
