Playground Surfacing Guide NZS5828 2015-471

We're making it easier for you to understand the NZS5828:2015 standard for playground surfacing. Use the guide below to understand where you need to have an NZS certified playground surface. The areas indicated below as a surface refers to at least 300mm in depth of a certified bark such as Bounce® Bark. 

Unsure what is classified as certified bark?
Feel free to dig a sample hole of your playground surface and we can help determine what state the current media is at. If it's still within specification you may not have to do a thing. If it has deteriorated and has broken down, we can help bring it back up to NZS5828:2015 standard

Have another type of loose surface?
We have other options such as our resourcefully sourced Curamet woodchip surface.
