The sandfilled artificial grass surface is hard wearing, resistant to cutting and burning (classified as low radius of ignition according to BS 4790) non-slip and is both attractive and natural looking. Alternative colours and patterns are available if required. The flexible nature of the materials enables it to be installed to suit the natural contours of the surrounding areas.
This versatile and attractive surface provides an economic alternative to conventional rubber tiles or wetpour. The soft and springy feel is friendly and inviting and has proved to be of added play value in itself. It comprises one or more layers of recylced impact absorbing polyethylene foam matting, covered by a sandfilled artificial grass carpet. The matting is made of waste, polyethylene foam, which is chipped and heat bonded (no adhesives) to form a durable, free draining and highly effective impact absorbing material. The foam’s closed cell construction utilises trapped cells of air to produce a springy, cushioned surface which does not compress, even after prolonged use, and is virtually unaffected by temperature.
The versatility of the system enables the formation of traditional playgrounds, small kickabout, or general play areas (without equipment) with no need for a base. (subject to suitable ground conditions).
Maintenance involves sweeping to keep clear of debris and dirt, (hosing down if preferred) and topping up with silver sand annually. Repairs can be undertaken quickly and easily should they be necessary.
