Compare the most commonly installed playground surfaces.
While safety is paramount in today’s playgrounds, designers understand that safety must be integrated seamlessly without limiting play or squashing creativity. Safer play structures are a major contributor to today’s playground designs, but the safety surfaces underneath those structures are just as, or maybe even more, important. In fact, many playground designers are evolving the way they approach projects by using synthetic turf as a play element itself to create safer, cleaner, and more comfortable play environments.
This white paper recaps the evolution of playground safety surfaces and why it was critical that they evolved and improved. You’ll get to explore the various safety surfaces along the evolutionary path of playgrounds:
- Loose-fill surfacing materials
- Unitary rubber surfaces
- Synthetic grass
- Synthetic grass designed specifically for play
We outline the pros and cons of each through technical performance data, as well as target audience and end-user perceptions, to help you feel confident in choosing a playground surface. Submit the form on this page to access the free download!
