Durable construction

The first Yalp Sona playing and dancing arch 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 arch care 2 steel anchors, which are buried 20 inches 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, protection 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  20 watts are consumed in energy saving mode and 12 watts in sleep mode – so the Sona arch is energy-efficient.

Succesfully tested

Like all of our interactive toys for outdoors and indoors, the Yalp Sona arch 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 commercial JBL speakers are ready for outdoors. The construction and positioning of the speakers 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 arch at a distance of approx. 165ft to the nearest residence. The volume can still be adjusted as required. All test results are available and can be viewed upon 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.”
