Playground Surfacing

Play & Park Structures offers 6 different types of playground surfacing to accommodate a variety of attenuation needs.

As a playground, the surfacing material should be as safe as the equipment itself. Since most playgrounds are outdoor, the surface also needs to be able to endure weather, wear and tear. Each playground surfacing material has a different set of benefits and is perfect for different situations. Our products are proven to offer a safe surface for children on the playground to fall on. A brief description of each surfacing option is listed below.
