Safe Play Areas
Kids love to play and we like to make sure that they Play Safe. When you are looking to buy a play set, safety is always a concern.
After making the selection please consider the playground surface underneath. The most common injuries on playgrounds occur as the result of a falling onto surfaces that are abrasive, hard or just plain unsafe.
No surface can protect against all injuries, but with our 'Safe Play' Playground System we have developed the safest, most consistent playground surface anywhere.
Our system can be fit in and around all types of playground equipment and depending on the 'Play Pad' (up to 3') we protect children from falls as high as 8-feet in accordance with IPEMA standards.
Schools & Commercial
The 'Safe Play' System is not only for homeowners but works well in daycares, preschools, charter schools and is the only playground surface that provides consistent safety in high traffic areas, keeps its softness in any temperature, protects against falls at any height, and fits under all types of play equipment. All this while conserving water and looking like a beautiful green manicured lawn.
Many playground options fall short when it comes to being low maintenance, safe and providing the protection that you would expect. The common surfaces like mulch, gravel or sand tend to be less safe as time goes on.
Highly trafficked areas such as those under swings, or at the landing of slides tend to pack natural materials and exposing the hard ground underneath.
Some rubber surface playgrounds do offer more consistent protection. These surfaces can absorb the sun's rays and be very hot. As the seasons change and in the winter they become hard and brittle which compromises their integrity and limits the protection they offer.
An average lawn uses more than 90 gallons of water every day, but in playgrounds, we often find that with the repetitive use, no amount of water can get grass to grow fast enough and worn patches expose hard dirt which can be extremely unsafe.
Synthetic grass never needs any water to stay green which helps with the water conservation movement.
No need to water artificial grass for it to grow while damaging expensive playground equipment, it constantly stays green and vibrant for 10-15 years.
The trend to landscaping is exponentially shifting towards eco-friendly water conscious designs. Natural grass uses a lot of water and fertilizers and leaves are a significant carbon footprint.
Artificial turf does not use any water so it is a great savings alternative and it requires little to no maintenance.
