Changes in Indoor Playgrounds
The birth of soft modular play, or contained play as referred to by some, started with supplies to Quick Service Restaurants and soon grew to Children Entertainment Centers and Family Entertainment Centers to have safer places for children to play.
Play Mart was there from the beginning and has been adapting its products to follow the growth in the business and the now sophisticated customer. Now clients choose colors, activities, theming, brands and many more features, once not an option. However the standard basis of all Play Mart playgrounds remains…SAFETY. All materials and designs are created with safety being the number one factor. The European norms are all followed and the customer knows that purchasing a Play Mart product means certification of materials and of installation (UNI EN1176 /1177 / EN71 – CE).
In the last few years designs have become more and more intricate with activities that take into account ages so that an FEC can have play structures or play zones for different age groups (0-3/4-10, 11-14, etc) or a school can have a dedicated age appropriate play area.
The look and feel of the playground has developed the most in the last 10 years with 2D and 3D theming creating a wow effect upon seeing the play area. Play Mart designers not only design the activities in the playground to custom fit the area in which it will be built, but also are specialized in graphic work to study how to best attract customers upon entering the area. Children in particular become loyal customers when the area is associated to a character or mascot. So now even small play centers look like a theme park upon entering. This is an important competitive advantage that creates loyal customers which is important for your business.
