Playground Maintenance & Repairs, Parts and Spares

At Urban Recreation we carry out regular maintenance and repair services on all types of playground equipment and flooring, this includes preparing, and helping you to keep on top of your safety compliance responsibilities.

We keep a fairly extensive technical library which has all of the manufacturers catalogues going back over the years and includes many companies that do not even exist anymore, this helps us with identifying older playground equipment and sourcing the parts necessary. Many of our catalogues go back to the 1970`s.

Our playground maintenance service also covers the supply of various playground parts and spares, which we can also install if necessary:

Playground Parts and Spares

We carry in stock a large range of spare parts that will fit just about all manufacturers equipment, these parts include, swing shackles, bushes, chains, flat swing seats, cradles swing seats, nest/basket swings. In addition to swing parts we also have available parts for seesaws, springs, slides, roundabouts etc.

Our engineers are available for quick call out to install these items or we provide a mail order service for quick delivery of the parts you need.

For larger parks and multi sites we also have available an emergency call out service.

Playground Surfacing

In addition to the maintenance of your play equipment quite often there is the need to maintain and inspect safety surfaces.

We carry all safety surfaces available including rubber tiles, wet pour, artificial grass and wood chip surfaces. Our maintenance engineers are able to repair any areas of surfacing any size.

Shrinking Playground Surfaces

On a fairly regular basis we attend sites that are experiencing shrinkage of their wet pour surfacing. While rubber surfacing will expand and contract somewhat there are times when the shrinkage is simply unacceptable and could be due to the surfacing not being primed to the edging material when initially installed.

Our repair service will cut out the affected parts, assess and relay the sub base material before relaying the rubber using effective primers that should prevent the same thing happening in the future.

Playground Roundabouts

We have extensive experience of all the manufacturers roundabouts available and carry in stock nearly all the bearings that are required from time to time to keep a roundabout in active service

Playground Nets

It is quite common for net climbers to wear out fairly quickly simply because play areas are well used and the amount of footfall on these items can quickly wear away the polymide yarn exposing the steel cables beneath. When a replacement net becomes necessary we are able to offer a full replacement service and can either provide a net from stock for the most popular manufacturers or can have one made to suit, we also offer a repair service for some minor damage and use this where possible such as on nest swings.
