Traditional playground surfaces are varied; mulch, pea gravel, cement, and rubber chips are a few of the go-to options of the past. More and more playgrounds are starting to make the switch to the synthetic turf as a safe alternative. Synthetic turf from Global Syn-Turf is the number one choice for optimal safety and durability in playground technology.

The traditional surfaces- mulch, pea gravel, cement, and rubber chips- are not adequately safe and tend to deteriorate over time. Heavy foot traffic in certain areas, such as under swingsets and merry-go-rounds, often leaves patchy uneven areas. Exposed dirt can be dangerous for falls and often lead to injury or harm. Playgrounds with rubber or rubber chip surfaces are a bit safer than their counterparts; however, in extreme weathers conditions the rubber can become hot to the touch or become brittle and crack under pressure. These reactions to hot and cold put the safety of those enjoying the playground in jeopardy.



Global Syn-Turf offers synthetic turf specially designed for play and recreation areas. Resilient and dependable turf is the only way to ensure consistent levels of safety across the playground. Beautiful green artificial grass will stay lush, soft and cushiony through extremes in weather, foot traffic and function.
