Safety Guidelines and Compliance

The PlayDesigner software works in the background to make sure your design meets the latest safety guidelines and also tests for compliance with ASTM, CPSC, and CSA. It enables the playground designer to create or modify playground designs using drag and drop method in a 2D plan view. Components snap together automatically and can be configured in a variety of ways. Colors can be assigned in 3D mode by simply clicking on color palettes by component category. PlayDesigner keeps a running total of the price and makes sure you stay within your designated budget. When the design is complete, users can print their complete proposal including 2D and 3D drawings, bill of materials, Design Summary, Cover Letter and much more.

PlayDesigner is a crucial part of the planning process, but not the only part.

The planning process starts with your playground vision. Playcraft then takes that vision and hands it off to the Design Services department. There you will be assigned a personal ASTM certified playground designer to help bring your playground concept to life. Once you're satisfied with the design of the playground you'll be ready to move on to the next steps in the process!
