Transcript of "Muga Article 01.05.12"

  1. 1. There are many issues surrounding the successful installation of aMulti-use games area. It is understanding these issues that have putSteelway at the forefront of Multi-use games area design. One keyarea is budgetary constraints. Often customers are led into specifyingand buying equipment which is not fit for purpose but is sold as acheap solution to customers who need to provide a Multi-use gamesarea. These cheap solutions end up costing customers more in thelong run when higher maintenance costs and potential insuranceclaims for injury are taken into consideration. Where budgetaryconstraints allow, heavy duty Rebound fencing which holds a BSIKite Mark License to BS EN 15312 – Free Access Multi sportsequipment, should be specified. As part of the rigorous testprocedure for BS EN 15312, the BSI carries out a repeated impactresistance to footballs and kicks test to ensure that the Multi-usegames area fencing is able to withstand regular unsupervised accessand use without the panels bending, breaking or sharp edgesappearing. The cost of replacing damaged panels can be expensivein terms of purchasing new parts which in addition could take up toseveral weeks for delivery depending on where the goods aremanufactured and frustrating for the local community with the losthours of play while the court is closed due to Health & Safetyconsiderations . The big risk however that remains when buying non-compliant Multi-Use Sport Rebound fencing is the high risk of injurywhich can result in public liability insurance claims and the legalissues that arise from providing un-safe equipment.
