Association of Play Industries' (API) has launched a new membership directory targeted at specifiers and buyers looking to order play equipment.
The 2013 directory lists UK-based designers, manufacturers, installers, distributors and inspectors of outdoor and indoor play equipment and play safety surfacing.
Sections include "Eight questions every buyer should ask their play space supplier" and details on safety, play surfacing, play organisations, the annual trade show PlayFair at Saltex and its full list of approved members.
"The directory is a helpful resource for local authorities, schools, developers, house builders and other buyers of playgrounds and play spaces," said vice chairman Michael Hoenigmann.
"The API champions the vital role of play for children in our communities and, as such, encourages the highest standards amongst its membership. We urge purchasers to undertake rigorous due diligence when choosing a supplier."Visit www.api-play.org
