Playset Safety Surfacing

You’ve chatted with a Recreation Unlimited specialist and designed the ideal playset, the kids are beyond excited for the installation, and you’re thrilled to give them a reason to “unplug” from those electronic devices. Good to go, right? Well, almost. All of our playsets are engineered with safety as a primary consideration, but what about the surface underneath? The base on which the playset sits is an integral part of play safety.

Grass is Good Enough, Right?

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 60% of playground injuries occur as a result of falls to the ground. Many people assume that grass is an acceptable playset base to cushion such falls. And while it’s true that grass and turf are softer than concrete or asphalt, they lose shock absorbency over the years due to environmental conditions and normal wear. Proper protective surfacing can dramatically reduce the risk of serious injury, making it well worth the investment. Our mulch packages are laid to a depth of 3″, which is sufficient to protect up to a 7′ fall in accordance with ASTM 1292.
