Engineered Wood Fiber Mulch for Playgrounds
You want to keep the kids under your care safe while they are on the playground, and part of that task involves putting the proper covering on the ground so that there is less risk of injury in the event that a child falls from the equipment. Today, there are several ground coverings available that you can purchase for your park or playground. One of the most popular of these is engineered wood fiber mulch.
WoodCarpet Engineered Wood Fiber offers several benefits to your playground or park, including low cost, simple installation, and proper cushioning for various fall heights. Engineered wood fiber for playgrounds reduces injuries through fall protection: It provides a softer surface than if the ground were left bare. It also looks great, which is why so many use engineered wood fiber playground mulch to promote both child safety and improved park aesthetics. The surfacing works well in many playground contexts.
Although periodic raking and topping off is required when you buy and install engineered wood fiber playground surfacing, the benefits and initial costs are lower than for most other safety surfacing systems. Our engineered wood fiber mulch is manufactured in multiple locations across the United State and Canada, and as a result of our national network of facilities, the per-yard price varies slightly from state to state. Contact a sales associate for an exact quote on your engineered wood fiber for playgrounds and for any assistance you might need with your order.
