Playground Surfacing

Playground Surfacing | Safety Surfacing for playgrounds

The main concern for any play area: safety. Generally, no playground equipment should allow a child to fall from a height greater than 3m. Where a child can fall from 0.6m or greater, then a suitable impact absorbing safety surface should be installed. PlayQuest offer the main types of playground surfacing materials, as found on this page, all certified to BS EN 1177. Which safety surfacing to chose is often decided by type of playground equipment and budget. Loose fills safety surfaces are generally the cheapest initially, but do require periodic top-us. ‘Travel-mats’, aka grass mat, playground mat, are the perfect option for keeping the natural grass look to a play area. Wet-pour safer surfacing is a rubber playground surface that is usually the most expensive, but excels in durability and visual impact.


Just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you to everyone there for the work you've done. I passed yesterday evening on the way home from work and the park was full of children. Just a few years ago it would have been completely empty. Everyone is dead pleased with all the equipment and as I say - it's getting plenty of use!! All the best to you all. Thanks again.
