PlaySafe is a safety-first version of Barkers’ StyleGuard-BT system. Designed for outdoor playgrounds and recreational areas with a low to medium security risk it’s ideally suited to nurseries and preschools, schools, public spaces and family attractions and created with a child-friendly approach front of mind.


It’s important that children express their creativity and use their imaginations, and that play areas allow them the freedom to do this. However, to protect the wellbeing of the child, it’s imperative that that this happens within safe and secure boundaries. The PlaySafe-BT’s simple aesthetic and range of 180 colour options complements a stimulating environment without compromising safety.


This system meets BS: EN: 1176 playground equipment requirements, is up to 2.4m in height, has no gaps exceeding 89mm and is free from neck entrapments. Design can be straight or curved and child-safe gates can be added.


This railing system is secured in concrete or base plated to surface mounting, and comes with heavy duty welded steel caps, to ensure resiliency and resistance against vandalism, cutting and vehicular access.


Swing gates manufactured to British Standard are available to match.
