Creating fun and Playing Safe…
Playgrounds are ment to create an evironment that will challenge kids and facilitate cognitive, social, and physical development through play. Our goal is to make sure that while the playground is challenging and fun it is also always safe. Proper safety surfacing is a key part in making a playground safe. We have several options to not only install new playground safety surfacing but also maintaining and protecting existing playground surfaces.
Playground Safety Surface Installation:
Creative Bonded Rubber Bark
Our Creative Bonded Rubber Bark is a great rubber surface option. It is a very durable rubber surface that provides great fall protection. It also has an added advantage of lower install and maintenance costs compared to EPDM and TPV rubber surfaces.
EPDM or TPV Poured In Place Rubber (P.I.P)
EPDM or TPV Poured In Place Rubber (P.I.P.) is great for providing colorful surfaces that provide great fall protection. These rubber surface options are a two pour system, a cushion layer topped with a wear coat. These surfaces look great but have higher install and maintenance costs.
Playground Wood Chips
Playground wood chips surfacing is a great alternative to rubber surfacing. The wood chips offer a natural look and will provide the needed fall protection. This option will require maintenance to ensure the wood chips remain at the needed material depth to meet the impact attenaution requirments. This option will have the lowest install cost of the three listed options, however it will have the greatest maintenance needs.
Playground Safety Surface Maintenance:
Clean N Seal
UV Rays, sand, rocks, and a countless number of other things will come in contact with a playground surface and can degrade the surface over time. To mitigate the breakdown of the rubber surface over time, it is recommended to have surface maintenance performed every one to two years. Our Clean N Seal surface maintenance will Powerwash clean and then seal the rubber surface with an aliphatic binder. This process will protect and revitalize the rubber surface, and in many cases will leave the surface looking as good as the day it was installed. Contact us for more information and recommendations on proper surface maintenance.
Playground Wood Chips – Top Off
We will supply and install plyground wood chips to bring levels back to the needed depth. After the wood chips are installed, we will rake out the surface to provide a safe and conistent level across the playground area.
