Guarantees & Materials
Creative Play offer extensive guarantees to help protect your investment. Your equipment and surfacing is designed to be high quality, durable and safe. With the correct maintenance and inspection you can expect your playground equipment and surfacing to continue being safe and fun for many Years to come.
2 – Years Comprehensive Guarantee
Creative Play provides a comprehensive guarantee on all products and services for the first 2 Years of your products life. This means that, in the unlikely event that you have any problems, Creative Play will fix your playground equipment, gym equipment or surfacing without any charge. There are, of course, exceptions to this such as vandalism, deliberate damage, product changes carried out without our agreement or damage caused by natural events such as wind, fire or flood.
After the first 2 Years, your guarantee moves onto individual material or manufacturer’s guarantees. These are some of the longest product guarantees in the industry and are detailed in the table below. Where there is a fault with the product or material we have provided, we will provide a replacement part free of charge. Should you require this part fitting there would be an additional installation charge to fit the replacement, this may be mitigated if you are using Creative Play to provide inspection and maintenance services. Where 3rd party products or components are used, we will engage with the supplier to ensure replacement parts are provided within the manufacturers guarantee.
Inspection and Maintenance
As a playground provider, you have a responsibility under BSEN1176 (safety standard governing playground equipment) to ensure that your playground is inspected regularly. Not only does regular inspection ensure your playground equipment and surface is safe to use, but it also highlights any problems that are developing, and these problems should be reported as soon as they occur. We will ask for copies of your inspection reports and maintenance records if you make an enquiry under your guarantee.
Creative Play offers a range of inspection and surfacing packages to help you ensure your playground equipment and surfacing is kept in top condition, by using our maintenance services you may be able to avoid any additional installation charges for fitting faulty materials as they can be replaced at the same time as your inspection and service.
