For those unfamiliar with the International Playground Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA), they are the main governing body that maintains an ongoing initiative to promote the benefits of play and to provide information and resources to help all of its members improve the quality and safety of children’s playgrounds. As a member of IPEMA, FieldTurf is proud to have a portfolio of products in their Play-Safe Systems lineup that meet the stringent safety standards set out by IPEMA.
With FieldTurf’s Play-Safe Systems you can rest assured your playground is designed to be a safe play area. IPEMA has partnered with TÜV labs in order to assure the process used to test the turf systems follow the stringent standards outlined in the Standard for Impact Attenuation of Surface Systems Under and Around Playground Equipment Safety (ASTM F1292).
Additionally, FieldTurf’s exclusive AquaFlow backing assures that each Play-Safe System can be played on even after the worst downpours, allowing kids to get back to doing what they do best – having fun!
