Can You Use Soft Play Equipment Indoor and Outdoors?
Lifetime Education soft play and *activity mats (+ rest mats) are all wipe clean and made with waterproof material, they feature non split seams and anti-bacterial, latex free, phthalate free, fire retardant, waterproof covers which have an excellent resistance to urine, this means that they are practical and ideal for children of all ages and can be used outside on safe surfaces on dry days.
Please do not store your Lifetime Education equipment outdoors and please bring it in after play and in the event of a heavy rain fall. Although the coated fabrics used in the manufacture of our soft play and mats is all waterproof, the seams and zips are not fully sealed (this is because they are sewn), which means that if left outside or in a pool of water, they will allow water to pass from the the outside of the product into the foam fillings inside. The water collected on the inside will dry out over time but it may become be a breeding ground for bacteria.
*( this sets the mats apart from rugs and carpets which cannot so easily be cleaned and kept hygienic.)
SOFT PLAY IS SLIPPERY WHEN WET – ENSURE THAT YOUR MATS OR PLAY EQUIPMENT ARE THOROUGHLY DRIED AFTER CLEANING AND WHEN BEING USED OUTDOORS.
