During the installation process, you need to inspect some details. For example, are the soft cover (steel pipes) fixed by plastic belt well? Is the net tight strong enough? is the ball pool fix tightly? If the engineers do not focus on the details and just install the whole structure games, it will cause safety and maintenance problem in short time. Therefore, you need to require professional and responsible engineers from the supplier.
