High performance foam for playgrounds

Playing is in the nature of children and playgrounds provide them with this pleasure. Parents naturally place childrens' safety first and demand playgrounds featuring state-of-the-art safety surfaces. Therefore, nowadays many mschools and municipalities require safety features for the grounds on which children play. The HIC value is one of these requirements.

Safety Flooring for Play Grounds

Nowadays many schools and municipalities require safety features for the grounds on which children play. The HIC value is one of these requirements.

Airlastic has developed unique systems which meet the highest standards based on the ‘airlasticity’ principle. Safe, durable, clean and friendly for the environment and very easy and quick to install.

In addition to other test equipment Airlastic has in-house equipment to measure HIC values. Not only in the laboratory but also after the installation or on existing sites. (Foto van test in lab en op lokatie)

Special systems

Airlastic has developed specially engineered systems which meet the highest standards based on the "Airlasticity" principle. Safe, durable, clean and friendly for the environment and very easy to install as well. Furthermore, long term stability of this type of playgrounds is an issue Airlastic intends to address, as after 6 months the lack of resilience of these types of playgrounds is often becoming an issue.

In order to meet the various critical fall heights Airlastic has developed a range of solutions. These include advice on the kind of foam, thickness, density, type of artificial turf and amount of infill needed in order to achieve the necessary results.

Special requirements

In addition to other test equipment Airlastic has in-house equipment to measure HIC values. Not only in the laboratory but also after the installation or on existing sites. In many countries the standards differ which means that we have numerous solutions available.

The Airlastic Layer

Standard elastic layers have very good shock absorption values, but 'return' energy back to the player.
