I have been considering artificial turf for my three commercial pre-schools that have playgrounds. I started my research online and found Global Syn Turf and their website was very educational and helpful. I called them to ask them more questions about playgrounds and artificial turf and spoke with a manager named Jim. Jim educated me on artificial turf as it applies to commercial playgrounds. He mentioned they sold 4 different types of Playground Pads that create different Critical Fall Heights for the children falling off playground equipment. Right now I have either sand or bark for the critical fall height and it is messy, ugly and not very effective for critical fall heights. Jim recommend I call the Global Syn Turf dealer in Minneapolis to get a quote and more detail about the installation process. I had one of their representatives come out to measure all three preschools and give me a bid. He educated me on the fall height requirements for the different playground equipment I had at each property. As it turns out I needed to meet different fall height requirements at each property. He recommended the different Playground Pad thicknesses for each property and gave me a bid. This company seemed reputable and their price was very reasonable. I hired them to put artificial turf at all three properties. It took about 4 weeks to do all three properties, but they are finally all done. I want to give a big thanks to Global Syn Turf and their dealer here in Minneapolis that have made me a full believer in artificial turf.
