Playground Safety Surfacing for Summer

Posted by Hannah Rech on June 14, 2016

Here at PlaySmart, we’ve just completed another makeover on the area around a local nursery’s play equipment.

The existing kit was still in good condition, but as the grass around the area was being worn away by heavy footfall, it was decided that PlaySmart’s exclusive JungleMulch was the best product to give the site a fresh new facelift for summer.

Playground Safety Surfacing – Our Solution

The use of vibrant forest green mulch tied-in with the primary colours of the existing equipment, creating a bold finish that will be durable for a long time to come.
JungleMulch is the perfect safety surfacing solution for nursery areas like this as it meets British standards for slip and fall resistance.

It also acts as a low cost, low maintenance alternative to loose-fill bark without the possibility of children being able to collect handfuls of the loose surface; which can pose a health and safety risk for younger age groups. As JungleMulch is made from recycled materials and coloured using organic pigments, it’s also very environmentally friendly.
