Plan Ahead for Summertime Playground Surfacing Renovations
For the safety of children playing, all-inclusive access, and improved maintenance, many school districts and municipalities are finding it necessary to renovate and upgrade their park and school playground surfaces.
The International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) certifies playground surfaces for safety and accessibility. Neither pea gravel nor sand, once common for playground surfaces, is certified by IPEMA. Instead, the IPEMA recommends engineered wood fiber (EWF). EWF provides a softer landing in case of falls while providing a firm surface for wheelchairs to navigate. Our blower trucks can quickly and easily install EWF as a refresh or as a new surface. Have an existing surface to remove? We can provide that service as well.
Ground Solutions also provides concrete flatwork and curbing for playgrounds to help keep surface materials contained and protect surrounding turf.
