ADA Playgrounds

Handicap Playgrounds and Wheelchair Accessible Play Structures

This commercial playground equipment meets the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessible Guidelines. The ADA requires that newly constructed and altered state and local government facilities, places of public accommodation, and commercial facilities are readily accessible to, and usable by, individuals with disabilities. Play Structures are required to comply with these regulations. These guidelines require providing fun activities close to the ground and giving physically challenged children a wheelchair transfer station (a platform onto which kids using wheelchairs can transfer easily onto the playground set to enjoy the fun)

Another factor to consider when complying with ADA playground regulations is the surface underneath a playground unit. According to a recent study by the National Center on Accessibility, some surfaces may put children with disabilities particularly at risk. The benefit of having the appropriate surfacing is its ability to take a fall from the highest height and is accessible to a child or care giver that uses a mobility device. Wood chips or mulch, two common types of play area ground cover, cost less up from but will usually cost the same amount as a solid, hybrid surfacing over the 15 year life cycle of a playground.

Ground level play components are those components that are approached and exited at ground level, such as spring rockers, swings, and stand-alone climbers. The main criteria for ground level components, which must be met, is the fact that handicap access is required to at least one of each type provided in the playground unit. Not all portions of elevated structures will be accessible; access to ground level components should be used to offset this.
