Playground Conditions of Sale


Where necessary, assembly instructions are included with your equipment, with a maintenance checklist.
Prices for installation are on the basis that the ground is free from rocks, stones and abnormally hard conditions. The ground is assumed to be “Good Ground” as defined in NZ:3604 1999, otherwise extra charges may be incurred. We need to know the position of drainage pipes and supply services, including power. While every endeavor is made not to damage existing services, we accept no responsibility for any damage if the precise positions of these services are not known to us. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to obtain any approvals or permits from the relevant authorities for the equipment. Extra charges will be incurred if we have to use a generator on site for power.
With adventure playgrounds we recommend that installation be carried out by our trained installation team, or by a supervised working bee, utilising a supervisor from Otago Engineering. In a working bee situation it is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure a safe working environment. Drainage is the clients responsibility.
