Playground Surfacing Solutions at Barnado’s

Posted by Hannah Rech on April 27, 2016

Earlier this year, the team here at PlaySmart was asked to help refresh the outdoor area of the Barnardo’s North Warwickshire Children’s Centre and install a specialist playground surface.

We decided to use a combination of practical JungleMulch rubber surfacing with artificial grass, to create a range of textures and a striking finish.

JungleMulch was also the ideal solution for the sloped area running down to the playground, as it’s fully accessible for wheelchairs and buggies; and complies with all required British Standards for slip and fall resistance.

Low-level equipment can be added to the surface in future if it’s wanted. But in the meantime, the children are making the most of the new area for playing games!

Thoughts on their new specialist playground surface

The client was thrilled with the finish of the works and the installation process, saying:

“I would like to pass on our thanks for the amazing job done here at Barnardos North Warwickshire Children’s Centre.

Organizing and implementing works to be carried out in a nursery setting can be difficult but with the help and guidance from your team the whole process went without a hitch.

The guidance given throughout was invaluable and the works carried out by Steve and his team were done with professionalism and skill.

When the children were shown the new area for the first time it was received with excitement, they love the different textures and the boys especially love the nearly grass area for playing footy! Once again, thank you”
