Equipment Theft

As I was browsing the news I came across an article from SFist, a news blog covering San Francisco, about the theft of playground equipment. Sadly, this is nothing new. As metal prices go up, metal items from parks and playgrounds are often stolen so the thieves can sell the products.

This is why it is so important to secure your equipment to the surfaces of your areas. Surface and in-ground mounting are the two common options to achieve security.

Surface mounting is used to secure an item to the surface it is on. While it is a great option, in-ground mounting is definitely the way to go to ensure your items are safe. In-ground mounting may not always be available, depending on what your equipment is, or what your surface is. So if you can not use in-ground mounting, seriously consider a surface mount.

When in-ground mounting is available it is wise to choose that option. In-ground mounting secures your equipment below the surface, making it much harder to remove.

Always make sure that you have your equipment secured correctly in order to help prevent thefts. If you have already been a victim of a playground or park equipment theft, contact us today to see about replacements.
