For your peace of mind HAGS SMP’s high quality product specification means we can offer extensive guarantees on the equipment we manufacture. Our guarantee certificates will be supplied with any quotation or upon request; alternatively you can download them from the links below. The information below details our specification and guarantees for each type of material we use.Our in-house manufacturing sites in Selby, North Yorkshire (UK) and Aneby, Sweden give us complete control over the quality of materials used, the long guarantees we can offer and the ability to offer alternative colour options.
Sourced from Scandinavian forests, our FSC-certified pine timber is incredibly strong and resilient. It is mainly used for structural parts such as loadbearing posts and panels for our multi-play modular units, swing frames and some of our park and urban furniture collections.
Mild steel is the primary material used in our products. Our steel is sourced from a UK supplier direct to our UK factory, this reduces the impact upon the environment through unnecessary transportation. Before we begin manufacture, approximately 30% of our steel has already been recycled. All mild steel sections are formed from structural grades and are blast cleaned prior to colour coating.
Our stainless steel is carefully selected from suppliers who use specialist workshops to prevent contamination of the steel during the manufacturing process. All sheets (to make slide chutes) are manufactured from 2mm thick material in a high quality grade: 304 S16. All weld joints are ground smooth and polished to create a continuous surface.
HPL boasts oustanding resilience and requires very little maintenance. It is primarily used for multi-play units panels and side panels for springers and seesaws.
These are available to order for our Olympic Swing range. They allow unrestricted, free movement of the swing seat while eliminating costly visits to unwrap swing chains from the cross bar. They also increase the life of the chains and associated connecting parts.
All our hardware is either stainless steel or zinc plated steel fixings to prevent corrosion appearing. All fixings utilise an anti-tamper ‘torx’ style head to prevent vandalism through removal of fixings. We never use plastic fixings on jointing components as durability is considered to be low and the cost of spare parts high.
Panels are manufactured from sheets of high density polyethylene (HDPE) to a thickness of 19mm. This material is especially formulated by ‘co-extrusion’ to provide a material that cannot splinter or delaminate and to give the best possible colour stability and UV resistance. Graffiti can be easily wiped away using a mild solvent to keep maintenance costs to a minimum.
Ekogrip is a recycled polyethylene based material, 18mm thick, incorporating an additional 2mm textured top ‘grip’ layer. This makes it very suitable for step treads and platforms.
Our powder coating system is fully automated and our ‘Extra Life’ finish is certified by Akzo Nobel. Thorough tests on HAGS SMP equipment components have been carried out resulting in a life expectancy of over 10 years in “urban and industrial atmospheres with moderate sulphur dioxide pollution”. For coastal areas, which have higher air salinity, we offer and recommend our optional galvanising zinc coating beneath the colour finish.
Please Note: Cosmetic issues such as minor scratches or dents are not covered by our guarantee and we recommend that any damage caused to the paintwork should be repaired promptly to prevent the onset of corrosion.
Parts such as swing chains, roundabout bearings, steel core ‘rope’ nets and springs are guaranteed against failure for a period of 2 years.
