Ensuring Surfacing Compliance within a Playground Use Zone Through Proper Surfacing
There is no such thing a safe playground. According to CPSC and other resources that collect data on playground injuries, over 70% of playground injuries are caused by falls (that was my playground injury!!!). Our mission is to underscore the importance of proper playground surfacing in creating environments where children can play freely and as securely as possible. Playground surfacing is the foundation of safety, serving as a crucial layer that absorbs impact and minimizes the risk of life threatening injuries.
Why Proper Surfacing Matters:
Impact Absorption: Quality surfacing acts as a shock absorber, reducing the impact on a child's body in case of falls or tumbles. This is especially crucial in preventing serious life threatening injuries.
ADA Compliance: Proper surfacing ensures that your playground is accessible to everyone, complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
Longevity of Equipment: A resilient and well-maintained surface extends the life of playground equipment, providing a lasting and safe play environment.
Legal Compliance: Meeting safety standards is not just about the well-being of children; it's also about legal compliance. Playground owners are responsible for ensuring that their play spaces adhere to safety regulations.
The Impact Test:
We go the extra mile by recommending and performing impact tests on playground surfaces. These tests assess the surface's shock-absorbing capabilities, ensuring that it complies with established safety standards. By conducting impact tests, we verify that your playground meets or exceeds safety regulations, providing you with peace of mind and assurance that your play area is as safe as possible.
