Safety

  • All playhouses meet all current design and manufacturing safety legislation. They are compliant with British and European Standards BS5665 EN71 and are CE certified.
  • All playhouses are for use in residential/domestic environments only.
  • Suitable for children age: 18 months - 12 years.
  • The playhouses are designed for outdoor use only.
  • As with all activity play equipment, we recommend that children are supervised by an adult during play.
  • Do not climb/play on the roof of the playhouse.
  • Designed for use by 2 children with total weight of 100kg.
  • Must be assembled by an adult.
  • If playhouse includes platform, it is recommended to be secured to the ground using ground anchors for stability.
  • All playhouses higher than 60cm should be installed on well drained, level ground. A surface with an impact reducing nature and texture, such as grass, bark, sand or safety tiles is recommended to prevent children from falling onto hard surfaces.
  • 2 metres should be kept clear around the edge of the structure to ensure safe play.
  • Climbing and access are not allowed over walls, hanging bars, handrails and onto roofs. Entry to platforms should be by ladders and steps only.
  • Never place the playhouse on a wet surface.
  • If playhouse includes slide, it is advised not to position slide facing south; due to heat from sun which could make slide hot to touch.

 

 

 

Maintenance

  • Check equipment regularly for loose splinters which may occur.
  • Like all children’s play equipment, Big Game Hunters and Garden Games equipment should be regularly inspected and the bolts, screws and nuts tightened, if necessary.
  • ‘Regularly’ is understood to mean: after assembly and twice a month during the outdoor playing season.
  • Check the condition of the stain each year.
  • To ensure the product’s durability, playhouses must be given a new layer of stain each year; use a water based paint/wood stain. Always follow the coating manufacturer’s instructions.
  • If these checks are not carried out the toy could overturn/otherwise become a hazard.
  • If a particular colour effect is desired (different to the one provided) the treated timber can be painted or stained. Always follow the coating manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Care should be taken to avoid damaging the timber components during gardening (mowing, strimming etc.)
  • A wooden floor is to be purchased separately for ground-level playhouses, unless stated otherwise. Multi-level playhouses include a wooden floor, unless stated otherwise.
