Playground Safety Surfaces in Colorado

Playground safety surfaces were nearly unheard of a number of years ago. Perhaps you remember going to playgrounds with surfaces like concrete, asphalt, dirt, or gravel underneath the equipment. It doesn’t take much thought to realize hard surfaces like that could result in serious injury if a fall would occur. Did you know that almost 80% of playground-related injuries are a result of falls to the ground surface? For this reason, it’s extremely important to install a safe, resilient surface under and around your commercial playground.

Can’t we just use real grass as a surface for our playgrounds? While this may sound like a safe and affordable solution, it’s not enough. According to the National Program for Playground Safety, grass is not an acceptable surface to use. It may be a soft surface underneath your feet for walking, but it does not have enough shock impact in the case of a fall, especially from high equipment.

Go Play can help you select the safety surfaces that best meet your needs and work with your budget. We will help you decide which shock absorbent surface is the best option, considering not only the level of maintenance necessary but also the height levels of your equipment. Various surfaces are designed to protect against falls from different heights. Additionally, we will ensure that your playground surface has the appropriate amount of depth for optimal safety.

Our goal at Go Play is to provide you with the safest, most effective, and fun playground safety surfaces. Below we show several of the playground surface options available, with the benefits of each type of surface.
