Research supports the developmental benefits of playgrounds and free play opportunities at home, school, and the community. Choosing a compliant playground surfacing under and around playground equipment is one of the most important factors in reducing the likelihood of life-threatening head injuries. The National Program for Playground Safety (NPPS) cites that falls to the surface were a contributing factor in 79% of all playground injuries.
The purpose of the Strong Foundations Playground Surfacing Guide is to provide an educational overview and to raise awareness about some considerations for planning, purchasing, and protecting safety surfacing. To request your FREE copy, please contact us at 800.727.1907.
