    Active Playground Equipment Inc. in Sarnia, ON offers one of the largest selections of outdoor fitness equipment in Canada. They design, manufacture and install ready-to-use fitness equipment in parks, schools and other facilities.

    The company is working to develop new features for their next line of outdoor equipment, which include adjustable resistance, adjustable seating, rubber grips and electronic device holders. Determining the necessary protective coating required to ensure the longevity of these features is key to the success of this endeavor.

    Active Playground has partnered with Lambton College to develop simple, cost-effective, reliable and quantitative test methods for the selection and measurement of various protective coatings. It is anticipated that by the end of this project, the Active Playground team will possess the necessary expertise to effectively determine the suitability of a wide range of materials for their products.
