Synthetic Turf for Playgrounds

Modern playgrounds require modern equipment, surroundings and accommodations. Our playgrounds are built to very high standards and safety is priority one in every design. Even long, luscious real grass conceals a hard layer of earth and stone beneath. To fall on this kind of ground is rather painful; in the worst case, it can cause serious injury. Playground synthetic grass offers a graded surface with a thick foam cushion that is hidden beneath its surface. Then its long fibers a filled with small shock absorbing rubber pellets that provide a soft pillow like cusion when falling. Our playground turf can be installed with new or preexisting equipment. We can also supply the equipment needed for any playground. Artificial grass provides a far superior protective ground surface for outdoor play areas, particularly areas with climbing frames and raised play equipment. Tougher than real grass, safer than real grass. No room for playground equipment? Let us design a custom play area for your family. Kids can play in a safe environment free from allergens, pesticides, mud and stains. These play areas are built to the same standards as our full size playground safety specifications and can have equipment added at any time.


 

  • Playground Artificial Grass

    This diagram shows the general construction and layers of our Synthetic Playground surface. Once the dirt surface is shaped and planned to desire we compact the surface and pin Geotextile Fabric over the complete synthetic playground work surface. Next we create the static base of the playground by laying layers of Crushed Granite in finer grades until it resembles formed concrete. The granite surface it constantly soaked and compacted to insure the surface is uniform and solid. Once completed the surface acts as a solid slab of granite insuring a perfectly flat playing surface that lasts the life of the playground. A Shock Absorbing Foam Pad is then applied and bonded to the entire playground surface (different fall height options available). This gives a resistance to injuries and concussions. The Synthetic Playground Turf is then applied to the foam base. Silica Sand is evenly and lightly applied to the surface of the field and brushed in to allow the fibers to stand up straight. After the first layer of sand is finished a thick layer of Granulated Rubber is applied. This creates a "youth and equipment" safe, playing surface that provides excellent drainage as well.

The Multi Filament Pre-K Playground Turf is then applied to the foam base. Using a turf with a secondary curled fibers allows the infill material to stay firmly planted and not kick back into children's clothing or bodies while playing. Silica Sand is evenly and lightly applied to the surface of the field and brushed in to allow the fibers to stand up straight. After the sand is finished a layer of Granulated Rubber is applied. This creates a "pre-k youth and equipment" safe, playing surface that provides excellent drainage as well.
