Safe Playground Equipment for Active Kids

Purchasing playground equipment is a significant investment of resources for any organization. Most playground structures will be in place for decades, and you want to make sure your equipment can stand up to generations of heavy play, outdoor weather conditions, and other wear-and-tear factors.
Shields only stocks the industry’s best and most durable playground structures. When you buy from us, you are guaranteed solid equipment constructed from non-toxic, durable materials. You can rest assured that kids will play safely and securely for years to come.

Commercial Playground Installation Services

We are proud to offer comprehensive installation services throughout southeast Michigan. We always work alongside inspectors to ensure no detail is missed while installing your playground structure. Our team meets or exceeds all certifications and safety regulations required by your school or community. If you prefer to install your playground equipment yourself, we provide experienced installation instructors to work with your group.
If you live outside of our Michigan service area, Shields is still here for you. We have the capabilities to ship nationwide and will partner with an installation team in your area. Please note that additional shipping fees will apply to long-distance orders. Contact us with any questions or to learn more.
