Wherever kids are running and playing, there are going to be trips and falls. Which is why you need the right surface for a safe landing.
We provide a variety of materials—all safety-tested—to fit every project and every budget.
Engineered Wood Fiber
A popular choice for playground surfacing because of its high-impact force-absorbing qualities, its inclusive accessibility for strollers and wheelchairs, its slip-resistant surface, and its budget-friendly pricing, our engineered wood fiber surfacing is free of any toxic additives or natural debris and meets all safety standards. For an attractive, natural look at a low installation cost, this is a safe bet.
We use washed and screened sand to remove impurities or safety hazards, leaving a soft, natural cushiony surface. It’s perfect for kids’ sandboxes—or even for bringing that beach volleyball court experience to your community.
This option is becoming an increasingly popular choice, not only because of its outstanding performance in surpassing “accessible design” standards for users of all abilities, and not only because of its easy maintenance, but also because the range of colours, shapes, and inlaid designs allow you to add a whole new dimension of creativity to your project.
A simple, economical choice, pea gravel is made up of small, smoothed and rounded washed stones of various colours. Because there are no sharp or jagged edges, it’s safe to play on and walk across, and it delivers dependable fall protection even in environments that experience multiple freeze/thaw conditions. It is also easy to maintain, naturally resistant to microbial organisms, and is less attractive to animals than sand.
Create any pattern you want, using the colors you want. These rubber tiles, which are installed over a concrete, asphalt, or gravel base, are designed to exceed industry standards for durability and safety. And here’s a great long-term money-saving feature: the tiles can be individually replaced as needed.
…or all or none of the above
Maybe you want to “mix and match,” using a number of these options in various places on your playground project. Or maybe you want to explore other ideas, such as artificial grass. That’s great—let’s talk. We’re ready when you are to brainstorm ideas.
