When Urban Green Newcastle took over the operation of local parks in early 2020, they did a complete review of the play areas and decided to use AHS Ltd for the safety surfacing.

As a registered charity, Urban Green Newcastle are very conscious of the pricing of products but did not wish to drop the level of standards required to ensure children’s safety. they worked with the team at AHS Ltd to firstly order 8-40mm Play Bark, which was found to be both bouncy and aesthetically pleasing.

Urban Green Newcastle then discussed the benefits of trying Hardwood Play Chips as a comparison product, which was again found to be visually pleasing and very easy to spread.

The young visitors are enjoying the new safety surfaces in the parks and Urban Green Newcastle are looking forward to working with AHS Ltd again in the future.
