Our Most Transformed This Year: Ballard Prep School Safe Playground Surface

17th August 2017

Another of our summer projects was complete yesterday and this one truly was a huge difference. The old and outdated concrete playground surface looked anything other than safe. With a team of professional installers, British manufactured artificial grass, a new fence and different playground designs we created a completely new outdoor learning environment.

The surface was installed over a 5mm rubber padding which acts as a safe playground underlay to help cushion falls (keep in mind that for play equipment, a more sufficient underlay will need to be installed such as a shock pad to cover the Critical Fall Height (CFH)).

For such a small area, so much can be included. It is often hard to imagine the potential of your existing surface when it hasn’t had any renovation work for years.
