Engineered Wood Carpet

Engineered wood carpet

Engineered wood fibre is a sawmill by-product that is tumbled, sized and tested to ensure it meets playground fall height requirements. Wood chips perform at a higher level than many surface options when temperatures drop. It is considered wheelchair accessible. We deal with family-run Zeager Brothers for our wood products.

Pea Stones

Pea stone surfacing

Pea stones are much like sand with a recommended 12″ depth and guidelines around the size of pea stone to be used. Testing with Triax Surface Impact Tester is needed to determine the suitability of the material. This surfacing is not accessible by wheelchair user.

Sand

Sand is economical, but unfortunately is is not an accessible surface. It is recommended that the sand is free of clay and any other material that can contribute to packing down and hardening. The benefits are that it’s economical and easy to maintain.

Artificial Turf

Artificial turf can be used as a wheelchair-accessible play surface. We work with the folks over at CpTurf.com for our projects. Together we ensure that our playground and park projects have the right impact-reducing layer beneath it to meet safety standards. Turf comes in a wide range of
colours and profiles and is durable. Click for more information.
