In August 2014, Sportsafe  were contacted by Hackthorn Primary School to provide a solution for their uneven and slippery play area.

The Problem

The existing play area consisted of a play fort and a small climbing frame. The play area was mounted on rubber tiles which were un-even due to weathering and were covered in slippery algae causing trip hazards.  Due to safety problems and the aesthetics of the play area, Hackthorn Primary School contacted Sportsafe  to discuss solutions to make the play area safer and provide a clean surface for the play area.

Solution: Premium Quality Artificial Grass Installation

Sportsafe recommended and installed a premium artificial grass surface, mounted on shock pads with a full stone sub-base to ensure both fall height protection and fast drainage. The grass is soft to touch and requires little or no maintenance. The new artificial grass surface also extends the life of the existing play area minimising future costs for the school. This new installation has increased safety of the play area and rejuvenated what was a tired area of the school. Hackthorn Primary School are delighted with the results!
