Choosing the right safety surfacing for adequate fall protection in and around playground equipment is a critical component to any playground project as most injuries occur when kids fall off of playground equipment. Our safety surfacing options range from economical engineered wood fiber to a premier line of poured in place rubber surfacing. All of the playground surfacing options that we offer are installed with our certified in house installation crews for peace of mind that the installation is professional and installed to manufacturer’s specifications.
Engineered wood fiber is specifically manufactured for playground applications. The wood fiber is cut to form a surface that provides fall protection while allowing wheelchair accessibility. The engineered wood fiber is certified compliant with industry standards for impact attenuation and accessibility. To complete the wood fiber surfacing system, we offer both plastic and recycle rubber containment border timbers, geo textile fabric and drainage tiles. Engineered wood fiber is an economical solution to playground safety surfacing and with proper drainage and maintenance is a long lasting surfacing option.
Shredded rubber is also specifically designed for playground applications. This playground safety surfacing is manufactured from recycled rubber and is processed to be safe for playground applications. The correct depth of material offers critical performance as playground safety surfacing and the shredded rubber retains resiliency year round. Durability of shredded rubber is exceptional and is available in multiple colors.
We also offer rubber tiles that meet all of the industry standards for playground safety surfacing. Rubber tiles offer flexibility in design and provide a clean smooth surface that does not displace during play. Rubber tiles provide consistent fall protection and are manufactured in different thicknesses for proper performance in playground and sport court applications. Tiles are an accessible surfacing option, eco-friendly, and easy to maintain.
