Playground Planning Guide
Custom Playground Equipment
All BYO play structures are fully customizable. Our Modular playgrounds make it easy for you to choose your favorite components to create your own playground.
You can make custom changes to structures or our playground designers can work one-on-one with you to design your dream playground from scratch. All custom playgrounds services are 100% FREE OF CHARGE!
Give BYO Recreation a call to discuss the design of your playground area. We will help you determine the appropriate equipment and safety surfacing for your playground.
Our Playground Designers will present you a CAD site plan that shows you the exact orientation of your playground in relation to the surrounding site as well as a 3-D rendering of your custom playground in the colors of your choice.
This service allows you to better envision your new playground and is a great tool to help you ‘sell’ your new playground to committee members or prospective donors. This design service from us is absolutely FREE and comes with no obligation.
You can customize the components and play activities on each structure. Whether changes are made to an existing structure or a playground designer assists you in creating a custom structure, you are able to choose your favorite playground parts.
Create a custom color scheme for your playground with our wide variety of color combinations. Choose combinations to match your school or neighborhood colors or to match the surrounding areas.
With so many color options, the possibilities of customization are endless! You can choose an assortment of colors for rotomolded plastics (slides, roofs, tunnels, some climbers), panel plastics, upright posts and metals. You can also select one of our pre-determined color palettes to add variety to your playground without having to do any of the guess-work.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, over 70% of all playground injuries occur because of falls to the ground. Proper surfacing is the most essential part of a playground for preventing injuries. Surfacing Options Include:
- Certified, professional installation offered through National Playground Construction (NPC)
- Customer self-install using in-house staff and/or volunteers.
- Outside contractor hired by customer.
- Supervised installation using our installation supervisor and customer supplied labor.
All of the equipment in our catalog meets or exceeds the rigid public playground equipment standards and guidelines set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the American Society of Testing Materials. Our installers are certified National Playground Safety Inspectors, and we have certified National Playground Safety Inspectors on our sales staff and playground design staff.
Our equipment is designed for long-term, outdoor use and backed with a manufacturer LIFETIME WARRANTY on steel posts, 15 YEAR WARRANTY on steel decks, and 10 YEAR WARRANTY on play system plastic components.
Most orders ship via common carrier trucking companies. The unloading of the equipment is the responsibility of the customer (unless otherwise noted on the invoice). The freight company will usually call you to set up a delivery time. It is a good idea to have several people on hand to unload the equipment - the delivery driver is not responsible for unloading the equipment. If your order contains equipment from several different manufacturers, you may receive multiple shipments.
Since most commercial playground equipment is made to order, lead times can vary between 3-6 weeks. You will be given a lead time for your equipment at the time you place your order.
- Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or company check.
- Purchase orders from government entities.
- LEASING which allows small down payment, fixed monthly payment, and 1% buy out at lease end.
