It’s no accident that tens of thousands of playgrounds in the U.S. and Canada are surfaced with engineered wood fiber (EWF) playground chips. This wood fiber playground mulch is designed and tested to be a superior product with long-term, trouble-free performance:
- Superior raw material. EWF is made from 100% virgin wood fiber, not used wood that might contain things you don’t want in your playground.
- Superior testing and verification. EWF is tested regularly to make sure it complies with all relevant ASTM International standards for impact absorption, material purity, and wheelchair access. In addition, the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) independently verifies the testing.
- Superior performance. EWF uses consistent type and size of wood fibers. This allows the fibers to knit together to provide a surface springy enough to cushion falls, yet firm enough for wheelchairs. In addition, rainwater passes through EWF so kids can play right after it rains. It also looks good. The varied colors of natural wood please the eye and blend in with any kind of setting.
For new or refreshed park or school playground surfaces, we recommend EWF. Contact us today for a free quote for our turnkey material, delivery, installation, and cleanup services.
