Interpretive Exhibit and Custom Play Equipment Consultation
The California Playground Safety Regulations do not apply to museum or interpretive center exhibits but some agencies that operate these exhibits see the connection between their exhibits and children’s safety and require that their exhibits comply with the California Playground Safety Regulations. Recent projects include the Bay Area Discovery Museum, “Lookout Cove” and the California Department Fish and Game, Nimbus Fish Hatchery – “Salmon Interpretive Exhibit.”
Many agencies that are working with Exhibit Designers and artist to design unique exhibits and playground equipment for their projects require the designers to include a Certified Playground Safety Inspector on their design team.
Others require that the plans for the project be reviewed for compliance before the project is constructed. This requires the ability to interpret the Playground Safety Regulations and apply them to equipment that is not specifically defined or covered by ASTM or CPSC.
We provide plan review and consultation through the entire design. Frequently this process involves taking several trips to the artist studio during construction then conducting the initial inspection (Audit) on site once it is installed.
