There is no legal requirement for protective surfacing to be provided on children’s playgrounds. It is, however, recommended by safety organisations such as RoSPA, BSI, NPFA and CAPT.

The Department of the Environment, Department of Culture, Media and Sport and The Health and Safety Executive also all highly recommend it.

We can advise the best surfacing based on the play equipment, location, safety regulations and personal preference of our clients in order to comply with European Safety Standards EN 1176 and EN 1177.

Surfacing is available in a variety of different forms from natural grass and loose fill wood chippings to rubber wetpour.

It is not necessary to provide a protective surfacing immediately for older equipment but it is recommended to have a planned programme of improvement as part of a Play Policy.

All new equipment should be provided with an appropriate surface. However equipment less than 600mm high does not need an impact absorbing surface.
