Playground Refurbishments

Let us bring your play area back to life

If your playground has given you good service for 10 years but just looks tired, why buy new?  At a fraction of the cost we can give your equipment a new lease of life.

RSS have 25 years’ experience in undertaking site refurbishments from a simple re-paint to a full “good as new” restoration, all can be achieved with minimum disruption and at a fraction of the cost of new equipment.  Rusted parts can be repaired, rotten timbers replaced and surfacing cleaned and skimmed.  The effects are dramatic giving your tired equipment a brand new look.

Over the years we have brought many items of much loved equipment back to life.  First we would undertake a site survey to establish the condition of the equipment and based on the structural integrity of the equipment, if a refurbishment is viable.  We can then establish parts that can be reconditioned and those in need of replacement.  We would then set out in detail our costed proposal for refurbishing your equipment.

All materials used are compliant to the latest standards and undertaken by our own team of experts.  We have a fully equipped workshop in our Selby facility capable of refabrication, shot blast and powder coating on the only Akzo Nobel powder coat line in our industry.  Here we can return components to better than new condition and replicate parts that are no longer available.

Skate Parks, Timber Units, Multiplay units, dynamic moving items all can be overhauled and refurbished – see our case studies for more information.

The benefitsPlayground equipment refurbishment

The benefits of a refurbishment are:

Environmental – no scrap disposal, no removal of concrete and rubber surfacing

Availability – minimal loss of use during the refurbishment

Cost – a fraction of the cost of new


“We contacted RSS Playmakers to refurbish our very popular skate park within a tight budget, as we have used them before on our other skate park, they delivered a great result within budget, using high quality paint and workmanship.”
