When it comes to your kids, nothing is more important than safety. That is why SYNLawn continues to refine our synthetic turf products and installation standards for IPEMA compliant SYNLawn Playground Systems.

With an IPEMA certified installation, you can rest easy knowing your SYNLawn Playground System is a safe play area tested by an independent 3rd party, specific to public safety. SYNLawn also offers customers a Certificate of Compliance verifying an IPEMA certified installation.

In the interest of public safety, The International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association “IPEMA” provides a Third Party Certification Service where an independent laboratory validates a participant’s certification of conformance to ASTM F1292 Standard for Impact Attenuation of Surface Systems Under and Around Playground Equipment safety standards for their products.

In addition to the safety components of an IPEMA certified installation, SYNLawn was among the first to recognize the need to create grass products and alternate installation methods incorporating additional safety measures when it comes to play areas. With a fastener-free installation SYNLawn’s playground systems remove the possibility of little ones being injured by sharp objects.

Furthermore, SYNLawn’s playground systems may also include exclusive TrampleZones™ in high-impact areas to increase child safety and extend the lifespan of the play area.

For designers and specifiers this provides the opportunity to offer IPEMA Certified installations which provide an end-user the highest level of ASTM F1292 compliance, the ability to write a specification offering an IPEMA Certified installation, and the confidence that you are offering a safe playground installation solution.
