Safe Surface

Every child deserves the opportunity to play in safe and creative environments that foster the development of important life skills and social play. We design all play structures to comply with ADA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) guidelines.

The first commonly accepted method used to make structures accessible are to provide ramps, taking into account the degree of slope and the dimensions. The second method is to include transfer points, which are a series of platforms that allow a child to leave a wheelchair and access the play structure.

There are many important issues to be aware of concerning playground safety. The CPSC offers a free booklet containing guidelines for playground safety that is an excellent resource for organizations. The booklet provides information regarding site location, equipment location, age separation, types of equipment and access to it. All the factors that contribute to the design and construction of a safe and accessible playground are included.

Recycled Shredded Rubber

This is a clean, non-toxic loose fill surface material made from recycled tires. This is a fabulous option for playgrounds because it doesn’t rot and it doesn’t absorb water. Your playground will be dry and safe quickly with this soft, resilient and durable surfacing that comes in a variety of bright colors.

Engineered Wood Fiber

This surfacing is made from engineered, non-toxic, crushed wood fiber. The wood used in this surfacing contains no chemicals, paints or other additives. It is fresh wood that can’t be manufactured into lumber. It is environmentally safe, ADA compliant and economical. It does require some maintenance and periodic “topping off” to maintain the required depth needed for safety.
