Safe Play Surfaces for Schools- St Joseph’s Primary

12th April 2016

Last week was a busy one for everyone here at Synthetic Turf Management, projects are flying in and we had an installation team down at St Joseph’s Primary School in London. This was to complete a safe play surface for all children to enjoy as part of their outdoor learning and PE lessons.

The safe play surface is part of our EPIC Product

EPIC (Education and Play in Colour) helps outdoor education of all students. This artificial turf surface can combine equipment, educative markings such as number lines or phonetics, colourful turf, sports markings and other creative characters to create an attractive, multi-purpose, all weather safe play surface for pupils to use as part of their outdoor activities.

St Joseph’s Primary

This London primary school was in need of a new playground surface. The previous concrete surface was a sea of grey and did not look appealing to children, although in primary schools this is a place that they spend most of their time.

Our team of installers can work on any surface and always ensure that a project is completed to a high standard, e.g. drilling to ensure sufficient drainage.

previously installed play equipment 

We install a range of different equipment so that you can get all of your safe play surface done at once without the hassle of separate contractors for different jobs.

For this sensational safe play surface, we installed an artificial turf which is softer than regular artificial turf and can minimise grazes from falls. For this 112m2 of our EPIC surface St Josephs opted for a range of different play equipment to encourage healthy and active lifestyles for their pupils.

The safe play surface is available in a variety of different colours to make your surface look attractive to all stakeholders

Shock Pads

Shock pads were installed around the equipment under the artificial turf, this is because they help to cushion the falls. Shock pads are needed is equipment is stalled from a critical fall height.

This running track was installed as part of the EPIC surface which will be used extensively in PE sessions.

Running tracks are always designed with the pupils age to mind so we can measure what would be appropriate for their ability

STM’s safe play surfaces really are the safest option for your school playground, in addition we can add school landscaping or a multi-use-games area. These completely bespoke projects will optimise space and last up to 20 years!
