Safer School Surfaces in Alton Barnes
We offer services including the installation of safer school surfaces in Alton Barnes SN8 4 for outdoor play areas where children will be running around and using different pieces of equipment. These can be designed for nurseries, primary schools and public parks to protect children from injury. For EYFS children these surfaces are particularly helpful because the under 5s are starting to develop physical skills and play games together outside. When using equipment like balancing beams and climbing frames, the specialist safety surfacing provides cushioning beneath the equipment in case a child falls.
One of our experts will be able to discuss the costs with you and provide a quote for any work that you'd like us to carry out. To find out more information about the types of school surfacing we have to offer, please fill in the contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
What Surfaces Do We Offer?
A number of different safer school surfaces can be installed depending on the look you want to achieve for your playground. Wetpour is commonly chosen for kids’ play areas because it comes in a variety of bright colours. This means it is often used to surface a whole recreational area and not just as a safety surface underneath equipment.
We can install multi coloured graphics to the rubber play flooring including classical games, numbers, letters and animals. However you could choose to have a simple application of black wetpour installed around a climbing structure to add the safety qualities without creating an intricate design.
Feel free to contact our team if you require any more details about the safe school playground surfaces we specialise in. The prices for installing this surfacing will vary depending on sizes and designs so please let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll devise an accurate quote for this work.
Playground Safety Flooring in Alton Barnes
The wetpour playground safety flooring provides impact absorption for trips and falls due to its SBR rubber shockpad layer which protects kids if they fall when running or playing on equipment. Other options of safety surfacing include rubber mulch and grass mats which both provide a more natural playground appearance.
The rubber mulch flooring design is made up of shredded rubber pieces which are bound together with resin and laid onto an existing surface. This specification is great for woodland themed areas with timber trim trails and grass surfacing. The mulch can be applied onto muddy areas to stop kids from slipping over and getting mud on their clothes.
Adventure Playground Surfacing
Rubber mulch also provides impact absorption so it’s perfect for school play areas with climbing features and balancing equipment. If you want to install adventure playground surfacing this is a good product to use as it fits in with timber equipment and climbing features. These areas are great as kids can develop a range of physical skills including balance, agility and strength.
Grass mats are also made from rubber and come in honeycomb shaped squares that are placed onto natural grass, allowing it to grow through and disguise the look of the rubber. These are perfect if you would like to maintain a natural appearance but still need to add playground safety flooring where equipment is used.
Critical Fall Height
The critical fall height (CFH) determines the depth of the ground you install based upon the tallest peice of equipment. This is set to absorb the impact made if the children are to fall and to minimise the injuries. We are able to provide you with the appropriate information regarding the CFH to ensure that you get a safe and trusted surface for your school or nursery.
It is important that outdoor learning areas are kept safer to protect children from injuries. Having the opportunity to run, jump and climb is a crucial part of physical and social development. Children can also use different coloured graphics and designs on the surfacing to make up their own imaginative games and communicate with each other.
