New World Park Solutions will work with you to design a playground that is accessible to all. This includes the playground surfacing specifications and materials. Many of our customers consider using a combination of surfacing materials. This can be a cost-effective way to improve accessibility, while still providing a good cushion to reduce injury from falls. A variety of materials also adds interest to any playground.
Top quality, certified playground mulch. Blower truck installation applies even, consistent layers of mulch from up to 300 feet away which saves time and delivers a better finished product while avoiding damage to surrounding areas.
Beautiful, poured in place rubber surfacing which is resilient, easily maintained and environmentally friendly. A wide range of colours allows you to add an element of graphic fun to the playground by creating inlaid shapes and themed designs.
Protective surfacing material can be a barrier for children who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Poured-in-place synthetic surfacing (often made of rubber), engineered wood fibre and rubber fibres improve accessibility. Sand and pea gravel may decrease accessibility because they do not allow a wheelchair to turn easily.
