Safety Measures Incorporated While Manufacturing Water Slides

The plunges, the splashes, and all that one does while having a jolly good time at a water park is because one feels comfortable and trusts that the park is complying with all required safety standards. Safety is an amusement park’s number one priority. Water slides which are full of thrill and play structures with newer innovations are the latest trend in newer aquatic centers, often presenting new challenges to the experienced park operators in terms of operational guidelines.

To ensure that the rides are safe for the guests, bodies like ASTM International (formerly the American Society for Testing Materials) shortlist design, safety and operational guidelines for water park equipment manufacturers. All the required safety measures that the manufacturers need to incorporate while designing water slides and play structures are given out by these organizations.

Standards on design and manufacture, testing, operation, maintenance, inspection, quality assurance and more are established by the F-24 Committee.These standards are frequently reviewed to keep up with the use of latest technologies and hence get adopted by various governmental jurisdictions. Most of the standards are subject to the local governmental codes, safety inspections by the government officials and insurance companies.

At Arihant Water Park Equipment, our engineers first try to understand if the safety guidelines and other specific instructions as per that particular country are being followed, as many of our projects are international projects. Our team follows detailed manufacturer guidelines for inspection and safety purposes. If required, inspectors from the client’s end can undertake safety audits and make sure that the necessary process is being followed. These audits might take place on a monthly, weekly or even yearly basis. But Arihant’s dedicated workforce is always ready to take up the challenge and clear the audits as and when they are held.

Consistency in water slide manufacturing and installation is one of the key aspects that Arihant looks into while manufacturing water slides and water play structures. A design engineer carries out a detailed design analysis and certifies the slide or the play structure in accordance with the relevant safety standards. If required the testing laboratories are booked in advance as per the defined protocols.

So the next time you visit a water park with equipment or design by Arihant, be assured of its safety and have a great time!

Splash pads or water play structures have known to attract the kids for ages. But their popularity in the water park industry has grown by leaps and bounds recently. The mere inclusion of a water activity play structure increases the footfalls of any water park and ups its value.

By definition, a splash pad or play structure is a leisure area constructed in a water park or a hotel and resort that has little or no standing water. This advantage eliminates the chances of drowning and thus requires zero supervision or presence of any lifeguards. Having water play activity structure in a park attracts families more as the parents can have a safe play area which keeps the kids occupied while they enjoy the thrill rides.

Typically a water play structure consists of various striking elements. These include kid slides, closed and open body slides and splash roof with tilting buckets. The play is usually are custom designed around a particular theme and have miniatures and structures which enhance the fun quotient of the park. The water play structures can be as small a 2-platform structure or can go up to being a 21 platform structure where the platforms act as connectors in the structure. The water activity play structures are coupled with components like water curtains, sprinklers, inverted umbrellas and fountains, sprinklers and water cannons to double the excitement among kids of all ages.


With over 420 projects worldwide, Arihant water park equipment has a forte in designing and theming unique water play structures. Their recent WAPS was a part of an entire park in Thailand and it had a distinctive 11 platform structure with a Caribbean theme. One of their play structures in Australia grabbed the media eye and got covered across news channels in the city. This is what they had to say:

Arihant not just uses the established themes but are also experienced in customizing themes as per the client’s vision and requirements. This gives them the upper hand as opposed to others in the industry.

It is a proven fact that children find water play both calming and invigorating. Vigorous splashing and kicking and running around in the water can be an excellent way for kids to have fun and let off steam! Water parks, hotels, and resorts thus should include attractive water play structure to keep their little guests entertained while they enjoy to the fullest.
