Adding a suitable playground surface to your Playworld Systems’ playground equipment doesn’t only enhance the appearance of your play space. It protects your community from spills and slips.
Our patented SMARTE protects at fall heights up to 10’ (3,05m) under a HIC* value of 500, the threshold at which concussions may occur. HIC (head injury criterion) values are a measure of shock absorbing properties of playground surfacing—the lower the number, the safer the surfacing. Current industry HIC standard for playground surfacing is 1000.
