Safety is paramount in any public space. When you’re designing an outdoor space that will be used by the community, safety needs to be integrated into your plans and designs from the ground up. Literally.

Choosing the correct safety surface for your playground area is no easy task. There are many materials to choose from, all with varying advantages. To help you sort through the options, you need a safety surface expert. You need All Inclusive Rec.
