It could be said that no modern playground is complete without a soft fall safety surfacing to cushion the fall of little ones at play.

This Sydney playground 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.

Soft fall safety surfacing under and around the playground equipment makes a big difference in the injury caused when a child falls.

Not only is soft fall surfacing a great safety feature, it can also assist with the aesthetics of the playground.

Era Polymers' EMD73 rubber binder was used to bind the coloured rubber crumb together. Once successfully mixed, it was then trowelled out to create a decorative yet safe surfacing.

For this playground the surfacing was mainly green with red and gold highlights under the green equipment, resulting in a pleasing finish.
