Falling, getting up and continue to play
Falling is part of the game. Of course, the prevent is better than to cure. If you fall anyway, it is important that the surface prevents unnecessary injury. Fall Surfacing under a Playground Set must comply with EN 1177.
BOERplay (playground) equipment is designed so that a grass area is often sufficient. In addition, there are many other artificial surfaces that could be used as impact absorbing floor material, e.g. (colored) artificial turf or rubber cast floors with playful motives. Below is a brief overview of different possible surfaces. If in doubt, always contact your sales representative.
Rubber casts are made of UV- and ozone resistant material with an EPDM topcoat. Thanks to this top layer, the casting floor is resistant to wear and remains colourfast for a long time. In this way, you can create playful shapes and forms such as water features. In addition, cast rubber is vandalism-proof due to the lack of seams.
Artificial turf has excellent soil substrate properties and good drainage so that rainwater can drain off quickly. It can be made in many colours, shapes and figures.
Tiger mulch is a non-slip surface with a natural look. This substrate is made of recycled rubber chips and, in combination with polyamide, is hard-formed into a solid, flat surface.
