Synthetic Turf Playground Surfacing Solutions
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the chance to play is so essential to optimal child development and wellness that it has been recognized formally by the United Nations as a right of every child. We help more kids play outdoors and inside by creating commercial and residential play area surfaces that focus on the safety of children, environmental impacts of the materials used and cost containment.
Safety always comes first with our SoftLawn® Playground recreation surface, which exceeds national safety standards and is ASTM certified. This synthetic turf play surface is fully ADA/ABA compliant and consistent with all U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission requirements. STI continually enhances our Commercial Playground configuration complete with fall zones, exceptional HIC ratings with all components being biodegradable and/or recyclable and lead-free. Like most antimicrobial products, our playground surfaces do not support stain or odor causing bacteria, mold, or mildew. Plus facility owners and parents alike never again have to worry about exposure or contact with harsh chemicals found in the pesticides and fertilizers used to treat regular grass.
We also offer an infill product that combines the shock absorption performance of crumb rubber and the ballast performance of raw sand, while minimizing health and environmental concerns and reducing surface temperatures by 20o – 30o F. With Certified Playground Installers and a Playground Safety inspector on our team, you can be assured every detail of your synthetic playground will be safe and ready for action.
In addition, childhood motor and sensory development is stimulated by the attractive appearance of our synthetic turf playgrounds. Unlike mulch or shredded rubber, the durable grassy surface is green, inviting and lush. STI’s colorful line of “Nature’s Friends,” such as a bright yellow bee and a vibrant multicolored butterfly which can be inset in any play area, add interest, fun and beauty. Pre-designed, synthetic Hopscotch games are now being inset at larger facilities enhancing structured game use, and we also offer customized logos.
