Turf is ideal for playgrounds for many different reasons. Playgrounds have a high foot traffic rate and need the right materials to ensure an environment that is both fun and safe.
When it comes to children, safety comes first and turf is an excellent choice for this reason. This specially designed material makes it easy for kids to run, play and enjoy themselves. Turf is designed to withstand severe weather conditions so that you don’t need to worry about damage or safety and the children can play once the weather clears without any issues. Some outdoor flooring materials can retain water when it rains making it dangerous and slippery. However, turf is designed to drain any water, eliminating any concerns of standing water which can attract mosquitoes. Turf will help you get rid of those fears and ensure that children can play without having to worry about being bitten by bugs.
Many children are allergic to outdoor elements like grass and flowers and can have a hard time playing outside with their friends. This is another concern that turf can eliminate because every child can play on this surface and no one will be left out. Turf is made from high-quality nylon fibres along with soy backing which makes it very comfortable to play on, but more importantly, prevents any sort of allergic reaction.
Since playgrounds see a lot of action, it is natural to wonder if turf will wear out due to the number of people that will come and go on a daily basis. The good news is that turf is built to last! It is very durable and meant to deal with high traffic. You do not have to worry about replacements after a short period of time and kids will be able to play on this surface for a very long time. If, for any reason, you do notice that a section of the turf is wearing out do not worry because there are options that would allow for just that section to be replaced without having to remove and reinstall the entire turf.
In addition to all of the positive qualities mentioned above, turf will make a playground look bright and fresh resulting in an inviting environment for both the children and adults accompanying them.
Children always need a place to have fun and release their energy and playgrounds allow them to do just that.
