We understand that safety is a top priority when it comes to installing playgrounds for kids to use. Falls are the number one cause of injuries for kids, so it’s vital that your playground surfacing material reduces the likelihood of these kinds of injuries. All ProGreen turf systems for playgrounds meet or exceed the ASTM fall height requirements, and we are happy to produce all of the related test data for your own peace of mind.
In addition to fall height safety features, ProGreen playground turf is soft, non-abrasive material that will also reduce the number of scrapes and skinned knees.
What is included in a ProGreen playground artificial turf system?
Like all of our turf installations, playgrounds require a compacted base, ProGreen artificial grass and infill. However, synthetic turf installations for playgrounds require one extra component that is not necessary for our other turf products – a foam pad placed beneath the turf to provide added safety. These foam pads are available in one to two inches thick; the size needed is entirely dependent on the height of your play structures.
