Durable construction

The first Yalp Sona playing and dancing arc was built in 2007 and is still being played daily. The Yalp Sona bow, like our other interactive outdoor play equipment, has been designed to be suitable for outdoor use. It is extremely robust and resistant to vandalism. For a stable anchoring of the Sona play and dance bow care 2 steel anchors, which are buried 50cm deep into the ground. On concrete floors even a chemical anchoring is possible, which provides for extra strong hold. Polyester covers and stainless steel guarantee weather resistance, protect against vandalism and all electronics are IP65 waterproof.

The power supply is double insulated and only needs a mains voltage of 230V / 2.5A. The rest of the interactive play set operates with a secure mains voltage of 15V. The Yalp Sona play arch consumes a maximum of 60 watts, which is comparable to an ordinary incandescent lamp. Only about 20 watts are consumed in energy saving mode and only 12 watts in sleep mode – so the Sona arc is very energy-efficient.

Successfully tested

Like all of our interactive toys for outdoors and indoors, the Yalp Sona bow is tested extensively and subjected to the most severe conditions and influences. The Sona play arch has passed all tests for temperature resistance from -35 ° C to + 85 ° C with success. For safety reasons, individual components may switch off prematurely in extreme heat to prevent possible damage.

The high-quality JBL brand loudspeakers are also suitable for outdoor use. The construction and positioning of the loudspeakers close to the ground attenuates the noise development and reduces it to an average of 60dB. This corresponds approximately to the volume of an ordinary conversation (60dB) or a TV (71dB). In order to prevent possible noise disturbances, we recommend installing a Yalp Sona playing and dancing bow at a distance of approx. 50m to the nearest apartment. Even then, the volume is, of course, individually adjustable and can be adjusted as required. All test results are available and can be viewed on request.

“The Sona Arch in Woodforest has turned out to be one of our most popular parks. We have a large group of home schooled children and I have heard this is one of their weekly lessons for young grade school children. It is a popular evening spot after school and filled on the weekends with all age children. The community loves it and they think it is really neat to have something so high tech for the kids to play on.”
