How Shock-Absorbing Playground Materials Help Keep Kids Safe

Shock-absorbing playground resurfacing materials, such as shredded rubber, engineered wood fiber, and poured-in-place rubber, are designed to provide a cushioned landing surface that can reduce the impact of falls. These materials offer superior shock absorption compared to traditional surfaces like asphalt or concrete, making them an ideal choice for playgrounds.

Shredded Rubber

Shredded rubber, made from recycled tires, is a popular choice for playground surfacing due to its durability and impact-resistant properties. It provides a soft landing surface that minimizes injuries from falls. It doesn’t decompose, is great for filling spaces, and only needs to be replenished every other year, depending on how often the playground is used.

Similarly, engineered wood fiber is another eco-friendly option that offers excellent shock absorption and drainage capabilities. One of the original materials used in playground resurfacing, these treated wood bits are safe for children.

Poured-in-place rubber surfaces consist of two layers — a base layer made of recycled rubber and a top layer of EPDM rubber granules. This seamless surface is highly durable, slip-resistant, and provides superior impact protection. It can be customized with various colors and designs to create a visually appealing playground environment.

By incorporating shock-absorbing playground resurfacing materials into your playground, you not only enhance the safety but also create a more inclusive play area for children of all ages and abilities. With these materials in place, parents and caregivers can have peace of mind knowing that children can play freely without compromising their safety.
