Impact-absorbing safety surfacing is installed in schoolyards, nurseries, playgrounds and parks, especially around play equipment that presents a risk of injury from falling. Read More

Critical fall height (CFH) is the term used to describe the maximum fall height from play equipment. The depth and area of surfacing required is determined by the CFH. Playground surfaces are often tested to BS EN 1177 .

Loose-fill materials such as wood, bark and recycled rubber chippings can blend well into a natural play environment, as can natural grass surfaces .

In-situ wet-pour surfacing is usually made from coloured rubber crumb, and can incorporate patterns and graphics to stimulate imaginative play.

Play surfaces can also take the form of safety tiles , synthetic grass, carpets and matting.

Safer surfacing suppliers frequently provide design and installation as part of their service, whilst many playground contractors will incorporate safer surfacing into their playscapes.
