Orca Coast Playgrounds Product Features & Safety
We strive to innovate and implement features into our products to increase safety, durability and help you with the on-going maintenance of your playground.
Tuff Skin Post & Frame Padding
Choking Hazard Typically children will gather in and around your playground chatting, talking and plotting their next attack of the play area. During this time, it has been documented that children will pick at the post-padding, over time tearing it from the pipe-frame of the structure. As some children will do, they put this material in their mouths and it could become a choking hazard. With a Tuff-Skin Post Padding, this is not possible. Children can not pick hard enough to pull the padding from under the vinyl-dipping.
Wear & Tear If children were to become successful in the above event, not only do they create a choking hazard, the play area also starts to look shabby in those areas, like the playground is older, not maintained properly and in a mindful parents eye, potentially dangerous. Lower areas around the playground also suffer from people passing by catching it with their feet or strollers, which adds to the above ‘well-worn’ effect.
Heavy 1” Box Netting
A nylon fabric net used in areas that are not accessible for climbing. Not for use on the perimeter of the playground, this larger netting is pulled tight between the grids keeping children safely encased on upper levels of your playground.

Top of moonwalk looking down. This triangle climb does not allow children to tumble from the top.
Sit Down Panels
At the top of the wave slide, we have incorporated a sit down panel. This prevents children from being bumped down the slide and also prevents children from sliding down the center of the slide.
At the top of the spiral slide is a rubber pad that prevents children from banging their heads on the plastic tube.
At the bottom of the slide is a plastic bracket that holds the netting tight to the plastic slide. This prevents the netting from being broken down.
Roof liners keep children from climbing out of the structure but allow for light to shine into the playground.
The wave slide has a wall liner that is snug to the wave slide, so the children’s fingers and hands do not get caught when they slide down.
Orca includes exclusive roof top and closed area access points for ease of cleaning. This plays an important part in keeping your space clean and well kept.
Keeping our customers safe is our TOP priority. Not only do we use high quality and safe materials to build our playgrounds but we also make sure that safety signs are displayed throughout the structures.
