10 Good Reasons to Choose an API Member:

Reliability and Reputation

API members are the UK’s leading play companies. They are professional, trustworthy and operate to the highest standards. Choosing a cut-price operator faces the risk of inferior products, poor quality installation and service, over-sold guarantees and warranties, and financial uncertainty.

Financial Stability

API members are financially sound. Their financial stability and security are monitored regularly, thoroughly and rigorously. Choosing a supplier with a poor financial record, credit score or trading history can cause major problems.


API members abide by a strict Professional Code of Conduct and are committed to a high standard of customer service and business practice.


API members readily provide evidence of recent, relevant previous work, case studies and references.

Play Value

API members believe the benefits of managed risk in play are indisputable. The API Charter ensures they design fun, high‑quality play spaces with plenty of challenge built in.


API members are play experts. They design, create and install high-quality play equipment, provide expert advice and have the knowledge and resources to carry out full consultations with all stakeholders involved in play projects.


API members are committed to maintaining and promoting BSEN 1176 and other relevant safety standards, and provide evidence to demonstrate compliance.


API member companies believe that investment in high‑quality play equipment provides a lasting legacy for children and communities. As a result, they are committed to long‑term service and support for customers.


API member companies recognise the importance of safety and provide expert advice on maintenance, repairs and inspection. They commission Post-Installation Inspections to ensure the safe operation of new play areas, undertaken by a registered and certificated annual outdoor inspector from the Register of Play Inspectors International (RPII).

Technical Mediation

The API actively encourages customer feedback on member projects and offers a FREE mediation service for members and their customers to resolve any technical disputes.
