Playground Safety Surface Resource in Charlotte NC


Kids fall on every Charlotte Playground, that’s the fact!  Kids are kids and we love them for it, but it’s our job to keep our little bundles of joy safe, especially on our playgrounds.

Jon and I built Creative Playscapes with the primary focus on designing and building safe and fun playgrounds in the Charlotte, NC regions for kids to enjoy.  We do this so parents (like Jon and myself) don’t have to work about injury so much.  We do a very good job on every playground we have designed and built in Charlotte and the Southeast!

Here are some numbers from the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

  • 79% of all playground injuries are due to falls
  • 68% are due to falls to the ground surface

This is why it is imperative to have adequate fall surface and avoid liability.  We at Creative Playscapes are your safety surfacing experts. We have access to the latest testing data and materials specifications to design a surface that will meet your exact needs on the playground.  Budgets, maintenance, surface durability, and wear are all considered to help fit the exact needs of your facility.

EPDM Surfacing:
This is state of the art playground surfacing.  EPDM is made tiny rubber pellets, incorporated on the playground site with a urethane binder to form a playground surface that is “Pliable” or “Soft” in other words it’s very durable but cushiony too.

We install EDPM Surfacing in a variety of depths, using a fall guide AKA compliance regulations based on the fall height requirements of the playground equipment we are installing.  We usually strive for 2 to 4 inches of playground safety surfacing.

If playground safety is a topic you feel strongly about (like Jon and myself), EPDM is the surface coverage we recommend.


Safety Starts w/ Stability!
