The specialist in child safety
Architects are the masterminds behind every building. It is part of their role to plan and design a building, but the thinking process goes beyond just that. Every relevant aspects must be taken into consideration from the beginning to end and this include proposing ideas, advising clients and working together with contractors.
When it comes to building educational spaces such as kindergartens, there should be a good balance between aesthetics and safety. Of course both the client and the architect wants to have and produce a nice looking building, but nice looking building does not mean that it can’t be safe, can it?
There are quite a range of safety equipments that should be installed in schools. In the Netherlands, it is required for kindergartens to install finger door protections at schools in order to protect kids from finger entrapment injuries. Another product that can be useful is corner protectors for walls. However, some architects are not necessarily “fond” of how these safety products look. They are not the most aesthetically pleasing product, so to say. Regardless, it is important to install them anyway!
