Protective Surfacing

Trips and falls are inevitable on every playground. That’s why you must provide a safe landing.

Playgrounds play a critical role in a child’s development. They’re where children learn how to socialize, exercise, and test their limits. With that in mind, your playground needs to be a careful balance of exploration and safety. One of the most important ways to maintain this balance is by choosing the right type of protective surfacing. Kids are often tough on playground equipment – but that’s the way it should be! When accidental trips and falls occur, our high impact surfacing will go a long way to make your playground more comfortable and enjoyable.

When planning a playground, installing high-quality surfacing from the start can actually save you money in the long run. Thanks to the long lifespan of our surfacing, this results in lower maintenance costs and increased peace of mind for you. Additionally, our protective surfacing is extremely versatile and can be used for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications. Outside of playgrounds, we also supply our surfacing to daycares, healthcare centres, and sport courts.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which surfacing to choose?

It’s important to know that there’s no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ when it comes to surfacing. Each type has its own unique benefits. Get in touch with one of our specialists, and they’ll suggest the best surfacing for your application.

What do I need to take into account?

Both the age group and height of playground equipment must be taken into account when selecting surfacing. This ensures that the surfacing will be thick enough to brace the impact of a fall, and prevent serious injury.

Which types of surfacing are accessible?

While EWF and rubber crumb meet the minimum ADA requirements, they are often difficult to push a wheelchair through. Fully inclusive parks are those with poured-in-place rubber, rubber tiles, or artificial turf.

How much maintenance is required?

Loose fill surfacing, such as sand, pea gravel, and engineered wood fiber, must be periodically screened and refilled. However, these materials are typically the most inexpensive to purchase and easiest to install.

Why Choose Us?

Sustainable Materials

To reduce the environmental impact of our playgrounds, we use surfacing that is recyclable and renewable. Our poured-in-place rubber is made from recycled tires, while our engineered wood fiber can be reused as mulch.

Leaders in Innovation

Our supplier, Zeager Bros. Inc., were the first to develop an engineered wood fiber product for surfacing applications. They also pioneered important accessibility standards that are now common in the play industry.

Keeping it Local

Over the years, we’ve built long-lasting relationships with surfacing suppliers across North America. When you order surfacing from us, know that your purchase is creating jobs and contributing to the local economy.
