What accessories do I need to ensure playground safety?
Answered Oct 13 12:44 PM
It is always recommended to use lawn pads under the turf for playground applications, especially for commercial playgrounds which require certain fall ratings. We carry different types of lawn pads which meets different fall ratings, for a 5’ fall, you will need to use 1-1/4” thick lawn pad, for an 8’ fall rating, 2-1/4” lawn pads will be needed. Any thinner thickness of either shock pads or lawn pads will not be sufficient to provide any fall ratings but only to provide cushioning. For residential applications, there is normally no specific fall rating requirements, and homeowners can go with or without lawn pad underpayments depending on the budgets. Other than lawn pads, all other accessories needed for a playground application will be the same as any other artificial grass installations.
