Playground Safety Surfacing

The Consumer Product Safety Council (CPSC) estimates that about 60% of all playground equipment related accidents result from falls to the ground surface. About three-fourths of all fall-related deaths reported to CPSC involved head injuries. If the surface beneath the play equipment is unyielding (such as concrete or asphalt), serious head injuries can result from falls. Therefore, the CPSC recommends that a RESILIENT SURFACE be applied to the ground surface beneath the playground equipment.

Play Mart strongly urges all purchasers of our equipment to comply with these recommendations for safety and liability purposes. The following surfacing options meet the current CPSC recommendation (4.5) and ASTM F 1951 Standard for ADA accessible surface material and the ASTM 1292 Standard for impact attenuation.

As a part of our safety surface installation package, we include a custom designed play equipment site plan to locate borders and surfacing to be installed by our professional equipment crew.
