What type of safety surfacing do you recommend?
This is a tough question! There are pros and cons to all types of playground safety surfacing. The first step would be to decide if you need unitary safety surfacing or loose fill surfacing. Unitary surfacing (Poured-in-Place Rubber, Artificial Turf) is the best choice for wheelchair accessibility and ease of maintenance. However, the upfront cost is much higher. The best options for loose fill safety surfacing would be Engineered Wood Fiber (Playground Mulch) and rubber mulch. Loose fill surfacing is less expensive upfront, but you will need to top off the mulch over time. So, the maintenance required is higher than unitary safety surfacing. We would be happy to get you pricing on several options and help you make the best choice for your situation. Please contact us for help.
I would also recommend that you read through the IPEMA playground safety surfacing guide titled Choosing IPEMA Certified Playground Safety Surfacing to Meet ADA Requirements.
Where do I begin when I start planning a playground project?
