Playground Safer Surfacing

EN1177 sets out the requirements for playground safer surfacing both under and around the play equipment you install. And surfacing materials have to be certified for Critical Fall Height (CFH).

Unfortunately the cost of a safer surfacing installation can sometimes be as much as the play equipment itself, but the correct choice of safer surfacing will help create a cost-effective, long lasting and legal environment for your play area.
