AND WHAT ABOUT A RUBBERISED CYCLE TRACK TO GO WITH THE ARTIFICIAL GRASS
OR OUR RUBBERISED SAFETY SURFACES
AND TALKING OF SAFETY SURFACING
A CRITICAL area that needs to be looked at when talking playgrounds, is the areas directly AROUND and UNDER play equipment. Research shows that most injuries in play areas occur as a result of children falling off play equipment. (Statistically children will at one or other stage fall off and injure themselves).
The impact abilities of the surface the children land on often determines the extent and seriousness of the injury. The most important aspect that needs to be addressed when it comes to impact related injuries is what is known as the Head Injury Criterion (HIC). Head injuries, for obvious reasons, are the biggest concerns regarding children falling off play equipment, as this could result in fatalities. The HIC therefore basically addresses the Critical Fall Height (CFH) factors. The CFH is simply the potential height that children can fall off from. The higher the CFH the greater the impact the safety surface must be able to absorb.
The second factor that needs to be mentioned when it comes to addressing CFH is the Critical Fall Zone/s (CFZ). The CFZ is the potential area in which the child ends up when they accidentally fall. CFZ must therefore be sufficient in size, to ensure that a child always falls on the impact absorbing surface.
Artificial grass SA offers amongst the best and most effective impact absorbing safety surfaces. Our representatives will gladly meet with you to discuss and evaluate your needs, and make the necessary recommendations.
