What is the best playground equipment?

Having lots of things for kids to do at recess will make everyone's experience more enjoyable. With a large commercial playground equipment, you can provide tons of activities for your students in one sturdy unit. Recess is more than just play, it is an opportunity to get out some energy, socialize and develop motor skills. With plenty of things to climb up, slide down and swing on, all children can benefit from the free time.

Our playgrounds come in a number of different sizes and styles from Kidstuff Play Systems and UltraPlay. Whether you need equipment for a small private preschool or large public elementary school, we have a number of great models to choose from. Be sure to check the capacity and dimensions of the playgrounds you are considering to ensure that they will fit your student population and physical space.

What are the benefits of a school playground?

School playgrounds are both fun and educational. As kids enjoy climbing, sliding and exploring, they are actually developing important life skills. Problem-solving, gross-motor skills, coordination and teamwork can all be developed as children swing, glide and challenge themselves. With the right kind of playground set, your students will have so much fun, they won’t even realize how critical their movements are to their own development.

While children are at play, supervisors need a place to watch them from. Recess is not a break for teachers, they need to keep an eye on the children, but that doesn't mean they have to be standing or sitting in an uncomfortable place. A few durable outdoor benches placed in close proximity to play equipment will provide educators with an appropriate place to sit and supervise. Children might also appreciate having a place to sit down and take a break from all of the action.

Great outdoor seating can also add a lot to the experience of sports teams. Long team benches will fit well in the dugout or on the sidelines of the soccer field. Student athletes will enjoy sitting on the sidelines and cheering on their teammates as they prepare to get in the game and contribute as well.

What should I look for in a picnic table?

Help your students enjoy the beautiful weather and offer an alternative to the indoor cafeteria with UltraPlay picnic tables. Vibrant colors and a selection of shapes can create an attractive configuration for any space. These durable picnic benches are built to withstand the elements with high-tech thermoplastic coating that will keep them looking like new through many years of use and enjoyment.

Do I need trash cans on the playground?

Having proper waste receptacles is important for every eating area and playground. If there are no trash cans around, people are likely to leave garbage on play equipment or picnic tables, rather than carrying it around in search of a proper place to dispose of it. Well-placed garbage cans encourage students and employees to clean up after themselves, so your cleaning staff won't have to do extra work.

Garbage bins are available in a selection of colors and styles. Bright hues can be matched to play grounds for a coordinated space. In a professional setting, subdued shades that blend in with the surroundings will provide proper waste disposal without detracting from manicured gardens or elegant courtyards.

How can I go green at school?

When considering the waste disposal options, every eco-friendly company and school needs recycle bins. They can be placed right next to trash cans so no one even has to go out of their way to recycle. Promoting environmentally-friendly initiatives teaches students that it's not hard to be green at school -- or anywhere else. Glaro recycling cans are convenient for students and the maintenance staff who empties out waste receptacles because they keep materials organized and properly sorted.

What is the best way to promote an event?

With great outdoor furniture and equipment from Hertz Furniture, you can host lots of exciting events in your school or church. To promote your event and ensure that the community stays informed about upcoming holiday parties, assemblies and more, use our wide selection of enclosed bulletin boards and outdoor message boards. With a cork board or letter board in the front of the building, you can easily display messages to passerby. This will keep all members and potential newcomers informed about the exciting programming that you have planned. To make messages even more prominent, consider a model with illumination or a custom header.

At Hertz Furniture, we have all of the outdoor equipment you need to furnish playgrounds, courtyards, picnic areas and more. With the right outdoor furniture, students and employees will just love spending breaks outside and getting energized for the rest of the day.

Create an inviting courtyard or outdoor play area with durable furnishings and recreation products from Ultra Play. This fun, functional collection of outdoor trash cans, picnic tables, playground equipment and park benches will encourage everyone to spend more time outside.

Ultraplay furnishings come with a 25-year warranty for many years of outdoor enjoyment. This tough furniture is built to withstand the elements, maintaining an attractive and inviting appearance in any kind of weather. Colorful picnic benches, playgrounds and garbage cans can be coordinated to create the ideal play area for recess, lunch and breaks.

When furniture is purchased that will remain outside permanently, it is important to make sure that it is designed to keep up its strength and appearance, rain or shine. Ultra Play products come in great colors that will not fade in the sun, or wear out in the rain. Perforated surfaces constructed from steel coated with high-tech thermoplastic are incredibly easy to clean and ensure that moisture flows away, rather than building up.

Great outdoor seating will encourage students and employees to take advantage of beautiful days and really enjoy their breaks. Outdoor benches and chairs come in many sizes and styles. Team benches are perfect for the sidelines of the soccer field or the baseball dugout, while park benches will look great in the front of a building or a small garden.

For those who prefer a more flexible option, outdoor chairs are a great choice. Unlike benches which are mounted on the ground, chairs can be moved around, so everyone can have seating exactly where they want it. This is a great arrangement for a court yard or playground area because teachers can position chairs in the optimal arrangements for student supervision.

Appropriate seating is just one thing that can encourage people to enjoy their natural surroundings. With comfortable outdoor tables, students can enjoy eating lunch outside as well. Picnic tables create some enticing overflow seating for the cafeteria on nice days and give students more room to spread out during breaks and meals.

Kids of every age will just love breathing in the fresh air and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature while sitting at picnic benches. Children's picnic tables are great for a class activity that uses eco-friendly materials. This arrangement will take the mess out of the classroom and let kids enjoy their natural surroundings. Additionally, if there are outdoor picnic tables near a playground, students who finish eating quickly can go and play, and caregivers will still be able to supervise the whole class.

All students deserve to enjoy the weather, no matter what their physical capabilities might be. Ultraplay's ADA compliant tables ensure that no one is excluded. When a school chooses to purchase wheelchair accessible tables, it teaches all students the importance of inclusion. Schools should cater to all students equally, and having accommodating outdoor furniture is just one step in ensuring that this happens.

When tables and seating have been selected, it's time to think about outdoor waste receptacles. Vibrant colors make garbage cans easy to locate, so disposing of wrappers, tissues and other trash becomes a natural thing for students to do when they finish their lunches. Outdoor trash cans have removable inserts for easy emptying. They can be coordinated with picnic tables or used to bring a new shade into the mix.

The playground is one of the most important areas in a school. When children have an appropriate place to run, climb, slide and explore during outdoor activity time, they can get their energy out, so they are calmer and more focused when they return to the classroom. Commercial playground equipment from Ultraplay gives the whole class lots of fun things to do during recess and breaks.

Recess is more than just play, it is an opportunity for children to develop important social and motor skills. Ultra play's playground equipment includes activity panels that promote developmental and educational activities. These hands-on learning opportunities make math and science fun, and encourage children to take initiative to find out more about their world. There are also plenty of fun ways to climb up onto decks and slide back down for hours of outdoor fun.

Bring learning outdoors with picnic benches, outdoor seating and playgrounds from Ultra Play. With attractive designs and durable materials, there is no better choice for your school, community center or even office building.
