With safety of students and children being the carers number one priority. Fun should not be sacrifices when children go out to play. With there being so many dangers outside for younger people, solutions need to be made to have the utmost safety with no compromise on the playground flooring.

The ground can easily be one of the biggest areas for injury at playtime in school and nursery, with children being clumsy and having falls, slipping on wet ground and tripping over uneven surfaces. Though, we can prevent all of these from occurring.

How Playrite specialist surfaces can help?

Our playground surfaces have been proven to have high quality and levels of shock absorption, slip resistance, rotation resistance and impact attenuation compared to Tarmac. While also providing a playground that is soft to the foot while still being durable to weathering.

With our range of playground surfaces we provide safety for children of all age groups with different levels of softness without compromising safety, with exactly that being an integral part of any playground development. Soft surfaces are easier on the feet and safer for falls. We offer an easier to clean, safe and much more durable alternative to other surfaces, combining limitless design options and impact absorbing materials that meet BSEN1177 and BS7188 standards.

Not only is it safe, clean and affordable but also enjoyable to use. With a range of 14 bright, fantastic colours to choose from, our playground surfaces are also visually pleasing and vandal-resistant and low maintenance.
