Inarguably the most important part of any playground, safety surfacing is often overlooked in the playground planning process.  The most common cause of injuries is from children falling onto the ground, so high-quality resilient safety surfacing is essential. The CPSC, Consumer Product Safety Commission, in their Handbook for Public Playground Safety, has issued guidelines which highlight the importance of impact attenuating surfacing within the safety zones of all play equipment.

In order to meet current playground guidelines as set forth by the ASTM and CPSC, public playgrounds must have a resilient safety surfacing within the established safety zones. Additionally, in order to meet ADA accessible guidelines for your playground, certain types of resilient surfacing are required.
At Site Specifics, we understand the importance of recreational area safety and that choosing a suitable surfacing material for a playground can be a difficult task. There are many factors to consider including initial price, durability, safety, and maintenance. A careful comparison of all the possibilities is necessary to ensure you make the best choice for your playground. Call us today at 1-888-551-3155.
