With safety built in, SYNLawn Canada’s synthetic playground turf offers parents peace of mind.
We all adore watching our children excitedly playing, running and laughing in the fresh air, but safety is always a concern, even during playtime outside. We know that as a parent you choose carefully in terms of the play areas you purchase for your child, and the same amount of thought should be put into the surface that is located beneath that play area.
Although hard or uneven playground surfaces can cause injuries to children when they fall, SYNLawn Playground Systems offer the exact opposite experience. Our synthetic turf playground surfaces are the safest you will find anywhere. Designed for all types of playground equipment, SYNLawn artificial grass protects children from falls as high as 10 feet, in accordance with IPEMA standards.
The public playgrounds that children visit are made from a variety of different surfaces. These surfaces, constructed from materials such as mulch, pea gravel, rubber or sand, all have one thing in common – none of them can come close to offering what the SYNLawn Playground System can, especially in terms of long-term safety surfacing.
Think about the heavy foot traffic that these surfaces typically endure day after day. They wear down over time, exposing the hard ground beneath, and also increasing the likelihood of injury should a child fall. Even rubber surfaces, which don’t wear down in the same fashion as mulch or pea gravel, have their own problems. During the summer they absorb heat, and in the winter months they can become hard and brittle, which compromises their ability to protect children.
The SYNLawn Playground System is different in that it was created specifically with consistent safety standards in place. In addition, it is built to stand up to heavy foot traffic and harsh weather, as well as to serve as the perfect surface for all types of playground equipment. All of this while at the same time maintaining its beautifully green look, and realistically soft feel.
The safety of your children is always our number one priority, but we would be remiss if we didn’t let you know about the additional advantages of choosing a SYNLawn synthetic grass Playground System.
Wide variety of Artificial Turf Products
We offer 25 different synthetic turf products, all of which can be used for play areas.
Safety Built In
Each of our artificial grass installations comes with soft padding underneath. This means that even the most rigorous activity will not displace this padding, which can help prevent injuries caused by falls.
SYNLawn synthetic grass is as just soft as the real thing, which can help to eliminate cuts and bruises caused by worn down playground surfaces if your child should unfortunately fall.
No Grass Stains
Keep your child’s clothing stain-free at laundry time!
Break free of the pesky allergens found in natural grass and keep your kids healthy and allergy-free.
With a drainage rate of 6″ an hour, even the harshest rain storms can’t keep our surfaces from being immediately ready for play.
Stable in All Climates
SYNLawn synthetic grass offers the same great protection no matter the time of year.
ASTM GMax and HIC tested and approved.
Easily Replaceable TrampleZones™
High-traffic zones can be easily replaced without having to touch the rest of the playground area.
Not a one-size-fits-all solution
Playground equipment comes in many forms and is used in many types of playgrounds. The SYNLawn Playground System is comprehensive, versatile system that allows for ANY type of play equipment. We don’t install one product the same for every piece of equipment.
- Playground System Considerations
- The height of the equipment
- The areas of high use or TrampleZones™
- HIC (Head Injury Criteria) requirements
- The customer’s preference of grass products
The height of the equipment determines the highest possible fall from a child playing on the equipment. We then can determine what measures to take when installing the foam padding protection.
The areas of high-use are possible candidates for the TrampleZone™ replaceable products.
The HIC requirements are necessary for building the right surface to protect against possible head injury to a child.
The rest is up to you. We have the largest selection of synthetic grass products to choose from. Simply select the grass you like best or one suited to your region and we’ll take care of building your perfect playground.
The patter of little feet can cause premature wear in places around the playground equipment. Instead of replacing the entire playground surface this upgrade allows you to only replace areas where it needs it the most. Under swings, around the merry-go-round, beneath the see-saw and the base of a slide are common areas for TrampleZones.
IPEMA Certified commercial fall rating package
IPEMA has validated SYNLawn’s conformance to IPEMA prescribed installation methods and standards necessary for our products to meet the ASTM F1292 safety standard. This includes an onsite inspection of the manufacturing process and its quality assurance from IPEMA.
Certified installation methods include the use of:
Beyond the sumptuously vibrant green color that our synthetic grass installations boast, SYNLawn® is doing all that we can to promote an environmentally conscious ideology in relation to the design and manufacturing process of each and every one of our products. SYNLawn takes measurable steps to encourage both homeowners and business owners to utilize our products and “go green,” which helps further the environmental sustainability of our planet for the future. All of our artificial turf products use renewable materials and can help gradually reduce your carbon footprint, as well as curbing water consumption.
Engineered using the EnviroLoc™ backing system, these products replace up to 60 percent of the petroleum-based polymers with renewable soybeans to create superior strength, dimensional stability and healthy contribution to environmental sustainability. The first component is the primary backing which helps extend the product life cycle by using 10% less material that is stronger and has superior dimensional stability compared to traditional artificial grasses. Product lifespan is further extended on the face by incorporating nylon 6 in the fibers adding up to 50% longer life. The second component is the secondary backing which incorporates an environmentally-sensitive polyurethane that replaces a large portion of the petroleum-based polymers with soybean oil (renewable resources) and adds Celceram™ (recycled product of coal combustion) for further strength and stability.
A SYNLawn® synthetic turf installation helps decrease both carbon emissions and fuel consumption (from using lawn equipment).
SYNLawn® products help save millions of gallons of water due to wasteful lawn irrigation methods.
SYNLawn® artificial grass requires no weed killers or pesticides, which means these kinds of chemical products are kept far away from your pets while they are playing in the fresh air.
Green building and LEED® certification
Using SYNLawn® helps environmentally mindful builders with LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) project certification.
