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.

We and the staff have only come across sheer delight from the children and compliments from the parents about the play frame, and it was well worth getting to school early. Just to hear all the gasps from the children when they first saw it! It has been a totally successful addition to the playground.
