Fire Retardant Safety Surfacing

firesmartFireSmart Safety Surfacing is the original and the best fire retardant safety surface in the UK. Beware of inferior imitations!

Developed as a superior fire retardant safety surface, FireSmart has become the industry standard for fire retardant surfacing and has established PlaySmart as the market leader in grass matting. With our trademarked installation specification (available on request), 10 year product and 5 year installation guarantees, by specifying FireSmart, you’ll be choosing an environmentally friendly surfacing solution that is safe, durable and cost effective. Please note we always recommend that FireSmart is installed on a good grass base. Please feel free to contact us for maintenance instructions.


FireSmart can be installed in a wide range of play areas, parks and public spaces and is particularly suitable for mounds and embankments.


FireSmart is slip and fall resistant (BS 7188). Our proven installation practice delivers high quality installations time after time with our unique clipping system eliminating trip hazards by ensuring the surface stays securely bound. FireSmart achieved a 3m Critical Fall Height (CFH) when installed on a good grass base and tested in accordance with BS EN 1177 (2008) in independent field tests; however, as performance may be affected by soil type, moisture content and condition of turf, we recommend that a SmartPlay system is used above 2m CFH or in poor ground conditions. Flammability performance is accredited to BS 7044 (self extinguishing within 60 seconds of ignition).
