How to Choose a Safety Surface Guide

Posted by Hannah Rech on January 19, 2017

When it comes to choosing quality playground flooring for your project, the vast quantity of different types of flooring and their pros and cons can be a little overwhelming. After the success of our grass mats guide in 2016, we decided that we’d kick off 2017 by creating a guide on how to choose a safety surface.

We’ve put ourselves in our potential customers’ shoes and thought about what information they need to know in order to make the correct decision. In doing so, we’ve created a comprehensive guide on ‘How to choose a safety surface’. The guide gives a clear view of a variety of products available and considerations that should be taken into account when selecting the right safety surfacing for a project.

We hope that our guide is a good resource to answer any questions that you have. It may even raise a few points you have not already considered! Our 13 years of experience within the playground flooring means that there’s not much about safety surfacing that we don’t know! We’ve also included information on how to get in touch if you still have questions and how you can get a quote for your project.
