Outdoor Gym Provider achieves TUV test standard certification
We’re always being told that we should exercise regularly and sensibly, but do you ever spare a
thought for the safety of the exercise equipment you’re using? Outdoor gym equipment specialists
Caloo have now proven that they do indeed by gaining one of Europe’s highest quality certifications
to sit alongside their pre-qualified status on Constructionline and their health and safety accreditation
with CHAS. By achieving this product certification this company leads the outdoor exercise
equipment industry in the UK by putting quality and safety first.
Caloo are very proud to have been recently awarded independent product certification to TUV standard 55012:2010 for their outdoor gym equipment placed in public spaces. Managing Director Andrew Kime said ‘The TUV test standard PPP55012:2010 for outdoor gym equipment is currently Europe’s highest product test certification, and after the gruelling testing and assessment that we were asked to undertake it’s satisfying to know that we passed with flying colours.’ Caloo is currently the only UK-based
company in its industry with this certification, which covers numerous aspects of the manufacturing
process including the product design, materials used and quality control processes in place to ensure
that the exemplary standards recognised in the certification would be maintained.
Constructionline is the UK’s largest online database of pre-qualified contractors and consultants, a
preferred supplier list if you were, that’s recommended by the OGC Common Minimum Standards
and the Local Government Task Force. In June 2011 Caloo joined their numbers as the newest
addition to their database. To be accepted onto the pre-qualified database Caloo has proven that it
meets their high standards not only for product quality but also with the planning and installation of
their outdoor gym equipment.
‘Health and safety in all that we produce and all that we do is of paramount importance to us as an
organisation, which is why it was so important for us to become a CHAS accredited contractor,’ said
Kime. ‘We supply and install our exercise equipment in outdoor gyms up and down the country for
schools, local authorities, private companies and many other organisations, and we know just how
important it is to not only offer the best, but to be able to prove that they are the best, and that’s the
reason why we have sought out our certifications, memberships and associations.’
Notes for Editors
Caloo have been supplying and installing exercise and playground equipment in schools, nurseries,
public parks and company grounds for almost five years. Not only is our equipment manufactured to
meet all European standards but it is developed to be robust, attractive and vandal resistant, designed
to enhance any open space and withstand the natural and less-than-natural ravages it will inevitably have to face in open air locations.
Caloo can design an outdoor gym or playground around your specific needs, advise you on how to
acquire the necessary funding for the project, recommend the best equipment for your requirements,
then project manage the entire landscaping and installation process to ensure that every health
and safety and quality standard is achieved. What’s more, our exercise equipment is covered by a
comprehensive structural product guarantee for up to five years, and comes with all the instructions
you’ll need in order to maintain it to ensure a maximum safe life expectancy.
