In commercial playground applications, we install the turf over a porous closed-cell attenuating layer specified to meet the critical fall height of your playground equipment. After the synthetic turf layer is installed, infill is worked in among the blades to discourage blade flattening and to help reduce surface temperature. Infill is needed in order to uphold warranty. Adequately installed turf offers efficient drainage, impact absorption, durability, and accessibility to promote play for all.
One of the best things about synthetic turf is that it is relatively low maintenance – no watering or mowing! Routine raking is recommended to distribute infill and discourage blade compaction. EnviroFill infill with Microban provides antimicrobial protection, is non-toxic and will support the system’s integrity after installation.
