MJ Playgrounds work on a traffic light system which takes the guess work out of knowing what is an urgent repair and what is not. The traffic light system is as simple as it sounds. When MJ Playgrounds provides you with a formal quote, there are three colours being green, amber and red. Green are safe and sound items, Amber will mean the repair needs to happen on the next visit or in the near future and Red is an urgent repair and must be repaired for safety reasons immediately.

Maintenance consists of replacing netting panels, cable ties, post foam and other general consumable items as well as the large range of play items mounted inside the structures, which are a combination of closed and open cell foam, timber/MDF and a PVC covers. These items come in a large array of shapes and sizes depending on the manufacturer and size and style of playground.
