Safety standards

All of our surfacing materials meet the Australian Standards for Playground Safety, so you can rest easy knowing your play structure meets all safety standards and will protect your young students.

Soft fall mulch is most commonly used under play structures, such as those found in Early Learning Centres. You are likely to find soft fall mulch being used in playgrounds, under swing sets, and used as cushioning under any structure from which people may fall. Soft fall mulch is an excellent material for absorbing the force of an impact, such as a fall.

Many Early Learning Centres prefer the use of soft fall mulch over rubber matting and other materials because soft fall mulch not only looks great but it enhances the natural aspects of outdoor play. Children play in mulch in the same way they do dirt and sand, and this type of sensory play is important for development. Besides providing safety for playing children, soft fall mulch becomes yet another play element in the Early Learning Centre.

The use of soft fall mulch, or some other type of soft fall material, is crucial for creating a safe play area for children. Australian regulations require that all play structures use some type of soft fall material to lessen the likelihood of injury to children due to falls. Our soft fall mulch meets all Australian Standards for Playground Safety and will help you create a safe environment where children can play and explore freely.
