surface material to meet
modern playground safety standards?
Playground Surface Material is Safety Tested
and Provides Lasting Protection
playground surface material is a synthetic low density rock that
makes an excellent surface under playground equipment.
Tested. Buildex playground
surface material has been tested in accordance with ASTM Standard F
1292-99 Impact Attenuation of
Surface Systems Under and Around Playground Equipment. The
Maximum Critical Fall Height*
|9" Buildex Depth
||12" Buildex Depth
* As with any
loose-fill playground surface material, regular maintenance should
be provided to maintain the proper depth of material.
Buildex playground surface material has several distinct advantages
compared to other materials:
lasting. Buildex is a
loose, free draining granular material that won’t shrink or
compact into a hard surface, so it retains its ability to absorb
shock from falls when it is properly maintained to sufficient depth.
Buildex won’t decompose and doesn’t provide nutrients that would
support microbial growth.
Buildex is produced at very high temperatures - over 2000o
F - making it is free of insects, disease, weeds, and soil-borne
to install and maintain.
Buildex is only one-third the density compared to rock or sand, a
definite advantage when transporting, handling, and installing the
material! Yet it is heavy enough not to blow or wash away under
normal weather conditions.
Playground Surface Material is available in bulk quantities with
delivery to your playground project. For
