When your child is enjoying an afternoon on the playground, your natural reaction may to feel as elated as your child does. After all, a playground offers an opportunity for your child to be creative, get exercise and have fun without necessarily being in front of the television set. However, you also may worry about your child’s safety. This is why leading products from American Safety Surface are so popular and essential at any play yard in your community. Rubber, an essential component of our poured-in-place playground surface system, is effective at providing sufficient protection from the impacts of falling. Many playgrounds feature materials such as dirt, turf, grass and soil, but according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, these substances are not recommended for surfacing a playground. This is because dirt and soil are hard, and even though grass may seem soft enough, it wears away over time. What sets us apart at American Safety Surface is that we focus on both safety and style. For instance, our poured-in-place system features rubber and urethane that are mixed at the playground site so that certain colors or patterns can be incorporated into the surface’s design. The colors at your playground site can attract young children in the local community as well as instill school spirit at an elementary school setting. It is worth noting that in the United States, a whopping 200,000 children are sent to the hospital emergency room each year due to injuries incurred on the playground. If you count the number of kids who end up seeing a doctor in general due to playground-related injuries, this number jumps to half a million children. Playground safety surfacing from American Safety Surface is designed to reduce instances of injury and thus preserve your children’s lives as well as your own peace of mind.
