Wood Fibre Playground Surfacing

Playground Surfacing: Wood Fibre

Engineered Wood Fibre is a practical and viable solution for meeting CSA Standards, while achieving minimal costs for installation and maintenance. In addition, the Accessibility for Ontarians With Disabilities Act imposes further requirements on play spaces.

This popular form of Playground Surfacing has been directly linked to a drastic reduction in serious Playground injuries within Ontario and, in part, is a simple step you can take to make your playgrounds safer. Depths of 30cm have been shown to provide impact properties that comply with the CSA Standard to fall heights well in excess of 3m.

Research has shown that playground injuries can be reduced by lowering the heights of play equipment
and using soft, deep surfaces to cushion falls.
- Canadian Paediatric Society, 2012. 

Wood fibre contains impact absorbing qualities, provides a slip resistant surface and, if properly installed, is fully accessible for wheel chairs and strollers.

Remember that the only accepted quantitative measure of resilience is to perform a surface impact test as required by the CSA Standard.
