Every year many accidents occur on playgrounds and play area equipment. This can be attributed, on one hand, to the instinct of discovery and challenge that characterizes children’s psychomotor development, and on the other hand, to equipment that’s lacking precautionary safety features or is inadequately checked and maintained.
Once possible defects have been identified, the ECO Certificazioni technicians provide concrete solutions to remove any hazards, and offer suggestions on the proper maintenance of the play equipment.
The ECO brand on a product is synonymous with safety, professionalism, impartiality and indicates controls by qualified professionals, thus ensuring greater reliability than self-certifications.
