One of the important choices you’ll need to make at the start of a playground project is which type of safety surfacing to put under it. Proper safety surfacing greatly reduces the risk of injury while giving your playground a cohesive aesthetic appeal. Playground equipment should never be installed over hard surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, compacted ground, or grass, since these surfaces offer little to no impact absorption. Only products tested to ASTM F1292 standards are appropriate playground surfacing materials.
our most popular safety surface options:
Cost-effective engineered wood fiber known for its ability to absorb high impacts, as well as excellent slip resistance and accessibility. ADA compliant, low maintenance, this soft surface will require ongoing raking and occasional topping off during its lifetime due to compaction and decomposition.
Available in multiple colors, our rubber mulch requires minimal maintenance, dries quickly after rain and will not freeze, compact, or decompose. It meets the latest CPSC safety guidelines, is safe, fun and economical, and is so well manufactured that it’s guaranteed to last.
