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.

Playgrounds Need Creative and Unique Ideas

June 17, 2010

The great thing about playgrounds is that they are set up to succeed from the start. What child wouldn’t want to take a slide ride or shoot back and forth on a swing set? This may be why designing and building playgrounds is so fun, they are just so well received by the community and children they serve. However, it is also important that they continue to be unique and creative so that the individual needs of the community are met and so that a place has a distinctive site to call their own. Here at Miracle Playsystems we really try to take each project and mold our designs around exactly what the client wants. We come up with many project specific ideas so that each project is unique and creative.

So what kinds of ideas are unique and creative? Well, color schemes should be designed to fit in the sit essence of a place. Blues and greens should be played with to form nature scenes and reds and yellow should combine to form a truly unforgettable site. Structures should be built to serve multiple purposes. For instance shade structures can be designed into a pirate ship theme to form the sails of the site. Actions such as this keep playgrounds interesting and functional as well. Of course you want to be as unique as possible, but the challenge is getting there.

To be truly unique you can’t just try to be unique. You have to fit the exact specifications of your project and the uniqueness with develop itself. Each client’s needs will be different on some level so by tailoring each design to those needs your design will be rather creative and individual, plus functional and appealing. Playgrounds need creative and unique ideas to stay interesting, but also so they fit the needs of a community, client, and area. And you know a playground is going to be fun!

Cutting Edge Playsites that Speak Aesthetics in Volumes

June 1, 2010

When designing a playground you want every feature to be a standout on its own, but also blend together. This is when play sites really speak volumes in terms of aesthetics. In the design stage, get in there and include tall structures and low lying ones too such as high slides and balance beams that have similar forms and colors so that they look like they belong together, even though they are incredibly different. When a designer can make polar opposites look like they belong in the same room together, he or she knows they have done a superior job.

Go a step further when putting a playground together and consider things like the flow of children and the position of exits and entrances. By doing this, a designer limits the fun deterring effects of congestion and also makes the site more safe and healthy. Entrances should no be directly in front of exits for instance. If they are, collisions are much more likely to occur. When a playground is set up correctly, children will move through it naturally and the site will look good at all times, whether that be when its alone on a rainy day or filled with children when the sun is bright and high in the sky.

Don’t forget to use juxtaposition with colors and forms too. This will inspire creativity and will not dull visitors. However, well put together themes are a great idea and will set up many play time games and adventures. When designing, it is important to have a reason behind everything that promotes function as well as aesthetics and wouldn’t you know it, when things are functioning well they usually look good. A nice playground is like a nice sports car…when every thing is running smooth, the good times are rolling and yep, it sure looks nice.

New Technology to Shake Up the Playground World!

May 4, 2010

New features in the play industry have been invented—actualizing ideas that are really extraordinary. These creations have taken traditional playground equipment to a level probably once thought impossible. For instance, did you ever think a clear rock wall could exist? Can you even think of what a bubble climber could be? Technology in the playground realm has reached new heights, allowing children to have new experiences; and equipping landscape architects with even more design options.

The Clear Rock Wall is one of the best, most cutting edge features out there today.

The clear rock wall is from Xccent Play is the first of its kind. On the Xccent website, details of the equipment are as such: it is, “made of virtually indestructible extruded polycarbonate,” and includes 70 holds, “made of durable UV resistant polyurethane.” Images of the wall can also be found on the site. Obviously, the wall is built sturdy and secure, but it also has holds on both sides so that kids can climb facing each other—a truly unique experience. The wall is fresh, but what’s better is that it continues to offer the benefits of play.

Experiences such as this one on the Clear Rock Wall are unique and fun.

Another novel feature is the bubble climber, from Miracle. This colorful attraction has a form like no other. Instead of the traditional holds that kids use to climb on, it has bubbles cut out that offer the same activity but with a different twist. The aesthetic appeal is also increased with a more organic feel that stems from flowing curves. The looks are also improved with vivid colors like bright red and green. This contemporary playground update will turn any playground from bland to original and remarkable.

Its aesthetic, its functional, its cost-effective... its the bubble climbing wall.

These two innovative features take tradition, stick it in the oven, and turn up the heat a couple notches. When modern technology teams with original thinking, anything is possible—in the playground world, that means more fun.
