Read this case study to see how Longridge Towers made their new playground a safer place to play!
Grass Playground Mats are a commonly used safety surfacing across the UK due to their flexibility for use in all locations and climates. The mats are easy to install and are often a cheaper solution to resurfacing more expensive wet pour type installations.
However, one thing clear to us is that the testing of these mats is something not commonly understood in the industry. Our playground mats are manufactured in accordance with BS EN 1177:2008, which means they significantly reduce the risk of injury.
3 metre Critical Fall Heights (CFH) are often quoted but are also often misunderstood by customers.
When tested in accordance with British Standard EN 1177:2008, a test height of 3 metres provides a HIC (Head Injury Criterion) value. The British Standard states that the HIC value must not exceed 1000, a number whereby it is deemed unlikely that fatal or disabling injuries will occur.
