Safety

As a major manufacturer, HUSSON designs and produces its equipment with the safety of its customers and users in mind.
HUSSON International has more than 40 years’ experience of designing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining play and sports equipment and street furniture. Each and every one of its products meets the very highest safety standards.

All HUSSON International products are designed and tested to meet a range of European regulations and standards and are certified by one or more independent laboratories, including TÜV, Prélud, Pourquery and Socotec.


Because Husson is absolutely committed to safety, our equipment goes beyond applicable standards in many areas.
