Inclusive Design

Vortex’s aquatic play solutions are designed to make play accessible to all, regardless of their abilities. Inclusive design encourages the physical, functional and social development of children. The right combination of Vortex products ensures excitement for the target audience and full access for all. When designing each aquatic play solution, we want to support inclusive play and take into consideration:

  • Access Points – Incorporate multiple access points with gentle slopes and avoid barriers to entry and ensure physical accessibility
  • Turning Points – Provide multiple paths to allow users to create their own unique experience
  • Distance Between Features – Ensure there is enough space between features to ensure easy navigation throughout the experience
