Q. How vandal resistant LMP is?
A. LMP is based on mobile tags wich can be read with mobile phone camera. Tags, fixing frames and info signs are durable and users can’t destroy those without tools. Still vandals can scratch, spray, burn or other way destroy tags. Some of the damages can be repaired but the easiest way is to replace vandalised parts. Spare parts are low cost and installation work can be done easily during the standard playground inspection or maintenance. Couple of missing or destoyed mobile tags won’t stop playing, so repairing can wait next cheduled maintenace work.
