A Protective Surface is
Essential

Canadian safety standard CAN/CSA-Z614 states that outdoor playground equipment with a fall height of over 12 inches must include a base filled with protective surfacing. We have three such types of materials: sand, washed and sifted; gravel, and; 100% cedar fibre (no bark)

To contain this protective material effectively, you can do no better than our moulded polyethylene border. Its tongue-and-groove ends have earned it recognition as one of the strongest on the market.

And there you have it, a playground that’s strong, enjoyable and safe for everyone!

Protective surfaces

prevent accidents

Reduce the chances of injury due to falls!

To avoid 70% of playground accidents, we recommend the wise choice and maintenance of protective surfacing. Regular checks of its condition are essential to maintain absorption capacity at its best.
