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.


I would like to commend your team of workers. We were quite astonished at the way in which they approached their work. They were well organised very efficient and above all, they must rank among the hardest working team of workers we have ever had working at the school. I was so impressed that I complimented them myself on completion of the work.
