CREATIVE Recreation Solutions recently installed a children's playground in St Peters, Sydney, using rubber products from Era Polymers .
The project took a week from installing the play equipment, including a climbing frame, fireman's pole and a slide, creating a concrete kerbing for the edge of the playground and lastly installing the soft fall safety surfacing.
According to Creative Recreation Services, no playground is complete without safety surfacing to cushion the falls of the children playing. The surface under and around playground equipment makes a big difference in the injury caused when a child falls.
Creative Recreation Solutions used Era Polymers' EMD73 Rubber Binder to bind the rubber crumb together. Once successfully mixed it is then trowelled out to create a decorative yet safe surfacing.
The surfacing at St Peters playground was mainly green with red and gold highlighting the areas under the equipment.
