Safety Playground FlooringPosted on: May 31st, 2010 by Charles Pruett
Kids play areas have become much safer over recent years, to where special safety playground flooring, like what you see here, is fast becoming the norm. This specialized flooring is made to resist the elements such as sun, rain, cold, etc, unlike traditional trade show flooring, which is made exclusively for indoor use.
For many years, childrenâ€™s playgrounds have been buffered with sand or wood chips, which are messy andâ€”although safer and softer than concreteâ€”arenâ€™t anywhere nearly as pleasant as the bouncy, foam tiles of playground flooring. Playground flooring has a higher impact rating than rolled gym flooring, can help to reduce insurance premiums, as well as liability potential, but (more importantly) greatly reduce injuries even from falls as high has 6 feet.
