Playground Safety Surfacing

Surfacing your playground or play system at the correct depth and fall zone is important to the safety of children. Riggs Recreation has several options to surface your playground.


Engineered Wood Fiber

Engineered Wood Fiber gives you a cushion that is better than sand or pea gravel and is usually used at a 10" to 12" depth. Give one of our representatives a call and we would be more than happy to get you a quote.

Loose Fill Rubber Surface

Using a loose fill rubber would only require depths of 4"-6" and has a longer life than wood fiber. Our loose fill rubber products are fade and stain resistant and come in a variety of colors!

 Unitary Rubber Surface

 Unitary rubber surfaces offer more of a "bounce" to your  playground. You can choose from the shredded bonded  rubber or a poured in place system. These systems are  generally installed over a concrete or asphalt pad to prevent  the rubber from cracking. You will be able to meet your fall  height requirements with just 2" to 3" of surfacing as  opposed to 10" or 12" for the wood chips.


XGrass synthetic playground turf is designed from the ground up for safety. It's fully certified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturer's Association (IPEMA). Combined with our exclusive SofPad underlayment and antimicrobial infill, our synthetic turf system is one of the safest play surfaces available today. And with our patented Heat Block technology it's cooler, too: up to 17.5°F cooler than other artificial grass systems. It's tough enough for high-use sports and playground areas as well. In short, it's the perfect green playground surfacing option!

100% Recyclable: Turf with Duraflo can be ground up into pellet form and utilized in a vast array of injection-molded products.
Permeable: Our non-perforated Duraflo is up to 50% more permeable than perforated urethane backed products and won't clog like hole-punched systems.
Polyolefin Backing: Absorbs no moisture and thus minimizes expansion and contraction resulting in less stress on seams.


XGrass' Static Block technology is built into the fiber to reduce static build-up on the playground surface.


Heat Block technology reduces the amount of heat that can be absorbed into the turf blades by up to 17.5°F.


XGrass artificial turf is less reflective - so it looks more like natural, fresh-cut grass.


XGrass mulch ensures safety and accessibility across installations.
