Children around the globe are naturally attracted to sport and play. Sport and play are essential for the development of children to explore, invent and create. Besides being fun, it has a positive effect on social skills, confidence, and the children's ability to express themselves. Playing in all its forms is every child's right.
In most countries, children practice organized sports after school and over the weekend. Every week, parents, their kids and the volunteers have to be present at the sports center. To accommodate all those people, the clubs build sports centers and sport facilities. Since these spaces are similar to schools and kindergartens, with loads of children around, it is important to create a safe environment.
Sport and play are accompanied by emotion and, in the case of small children, mainly from friendly competition. An accident can happen on the field, but preferably not off the field at the sport facility.
Children should not be able to hurt themselves at the sports facilities due to sharp corners, slippery floors and slamming doors. Parents should be able to let their children play sports, knowing that they will return home without being hurt through negligence of safety.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THE SPORTS FACILITIES SAFE FOR CHILDREN?
Safe sports facilities are extremely important. Arte Viva offers various solutions to reduce the dangers inside and outside the facilities. Our child safety products ensure that the children can play without being hurt.
DOOR FINGER GUARDS FOR SPORTS FACILITIES
Door finger guards are a primary safety solution within sports centers and sports facilities. Doors of the changing rooms, toilets, sports canteen and sports hall are a potential danger for children. When they are playing at the club, they are constantly on the move. A child should not be able to hurt himself on a closing door. The hinge side of the door should be properly covered with door finger protection. Door finger guards prevent children from getting their fingers caught in the door. You can find more information about our door finger protection here.
CORNER PROTECTION FOR SPORTS FACILITIES
Sports facilities, and certainly older centers, have sharp corners in the building. Nowadays the walls are flattened, making them safer. The sharp corners and edges in the building can easily be shielded with corner protection products. Corner protection is available in various colors and can be used in any interior.

CHILD SAFE MIRRORS FOR SPORTS FACILITIES
In a sports facility where ball sports are practiced, mirrors are a potential hazard. It happens quite often that a ball ends up in the locker room and it flies around. The mirror should be impact-resistant and shatterproof, even if a ball, block or cone hits it, Arte Viva’s child safe mirrors are perfect for sports facilities.
