Synthetic Grass Surfacing To School Play Areas

Installing Synthetic Grass Surfacing To School Play Areas is a great option to allow young people and children to play outside at breaks and lunch times all year round whatever the weather. The reason behind this being fake astroturf based on a porous sub base such as MOT Type 1 Stone is a SuDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) compliant surface meaning that after heavy rain water is able to drain through the system in to the substrata freely and correctly instead of flowing straight into a drain causing them to over flow and flood.

Playground Synthetic Turf

Because a synthetic turf surface is permeable it would prevent wet and muddy puddle areas that might appear after rainfall on a natural lawn area, these puddles can often see break and lunch times spent inside and are known as ‘wet-play times’. Artificial lawns are a great surface option for Primary schools, Secondary schools and SEN schools as not only are they an all weather surface they also require little or no maintenance reducing green keeping costs as they do not need either mowing or watering like a natural grass area and they stay aesthetically pleasing all year round. Many nursery play gardens have astroturf flooring installed because kids can play on it and it also gives a natural appearance.

Artificial Grassed School Playground Surface

Playgrounds in schools that are surfaced in artificial turf allow children and young people to play throughout the year as well as providing a safety surfacing option. Astroturf can be installed in primary and secondary school play-areas with a shockpad layer beneath to provide adequate a shock absorbency and suitable critical fall height (CFH) for any playground equipment it may be installed beneath. The shockpad layer beneath the artificial lawn is the layer of the system that varies in depth to achieve the relevant CFH. The CFH is defined by the highest platform of the playground equipment on the play-area as well as the sub base beneath the synthetic turf surface and the shockpad. On areas used by the people and in particular children especially in a school environment it is extremely important that the correct Critical Fall Height is achieved.

Play Area Edging Ideas

Artificial lawns are usually installed along with timber edgings, timber edgings keep with the natural look of the artificial turf and aim to make the area look as nice, tidy and natural as possible.

How to Lay Play Safety Grass

If you are interested in the installation of safety grass surface, our installers can offer you details on the process:

  1. Remove existing surfacing
  2. Lay appropriate membrane
  3. Install compacted stone sub base
  4. Install shockpad if necessary
  5. Lay artificial turf carpet

We can complete the installation process for nurseries, schools, parks and even domestic households if required. Shockpads are often installed for artificial safety astroturf when high playground equipment is installed within the area. The shockpad provides an impact absorbing surface making the surfacing a lot safer for children. This can conform with the Critical Fall Heights meaning that children won't be badly injured in the event they fall off the playground equipment.
