Safety is crucial for both children and adults to be able to move about safely at the playground. Therefore, our materials are carefully selected according to strict requirements regarding both use and maintenance. It is very important for us that the materials do not change over time, as we want to avoid the risk – and the associated dangers – of, for example, cracks and rot, which in the worst case can result in broken posts and top beams.
This is also one of the reasons why our play equipment is not made of wood. Wood is a natural material, which means that star shakes, cracks and rot can occur over the years – and pose a safety risk. We have therefore decided to use materials such as polyethylene, nylon and steel, which are all durable and low-maintenance.

By using high-quality polyethylene and steel, we can ensure that our playgrounds do not pose a safety risk, even after 10, 15 or 20 years.Tom Donbæk, Production Manager, and second-generation owner of LEDON

TÜV – Technischer Überwachungsverein – is an association of independent experts who specialise in testing and inspecting technical systems, facilities and items in order to minimise and prevent damage and injury. TÜV is internationally recognised, and acts as an independent third party, which ensures that our play equipment complies with all requirements of the EN 1176 standard.
Safety is our number one priority. Therefore, we take responsibility for ensuring that our play equipment is approved and certified according to the European safety standard EN 1176, and that the certification is carried out independently by TÜV.
Independent TÜV certification is your guarantee that our play equipment meets strict safety and quality requirements. This includes, for example, strength calculations and assessments of any risk factors associated with the individual play activities. While maintaining the certifications and the ongoing re-certifications represent a significant cost, it is crucial for us that we can say with complete peace of mind that our playgrounds are safe year after year.
