Accessibility

It's important that all kids are able to join in on the fun. A number of our units are wheelchair accessible for this reason and we also offer many ground level components that are accessible to everyone. Whether it's transfer stations, raised panels, ramps, or bridges, Swing Time, has the solutions for making sure that your playground is accessible.

Safety

As Canada's most experienced and trusted playground manufacturer, Blue Imp and Swing Time take safety standards seriously. For us, safety is about more than meeting a standard. It's about thinking ahead and designing in a way that promotes easy supervision and prevents kids from putting themselves in danger. We are proactive in ensuring that our designs, processes and structures meet or exceed the standards established by CSA, ASTM and CPSC's Handbook for Public Playground Safety. Please contact Swing Time for clarification of any standards, safety zones, non-encroachment zones, etc. prior to installing your playground.
