Playground Turf Surface Solutions
We help more kids play with the creation of our commercial and residential playground turf surfaces, which focus on the safety of children, environmental impacts of the materials used, and cost containment. Playground turf helps increase kid’s playtime, which is essential to optimum child development. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the chance to play is so essential to optimal child development and wellness, that it has been formally recognized as a right of every child by the United Nations.
A Safer Solution to Playgrounds
Safety is always the number one concern when it comes to selecting the perfect play set for your children. After selecting your kids’ play set, it is important to consider the playground surface underneath. Most injuries on playgrounds are the result of a fall on surfaces that are abrasive, hard, or just plain unsafe. That is why safety always comes first with our SoftLawn® Playground turf surface, which exceeds national safety standards and is ASTM certified. Our playground turf is fully ADA/ABA compliant and consistent with all U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission requirements.
Commercial Playground Turf
We continually enhance our Commercial Playground configuration, complete with fall zones and exceptional HIC ratings with all components being biodegradable and/or recyclable and lead-free. Like most antimicrobial products, our playground surfaces do not support stain or odor causing bacteria, mold, or mildew. Plus facility owners and parents alike never again have to worry about exposure or contact with harsh chemicals found in the pesticides and fertilizers used to treat regular grass. We also offer an infill product that combines the shock absorption performance of crumb rubber and the ballast performance of raw sand, while minimizing health and environmental concerns and reducing surface temperatures by 20° – 30° F.
