How Artificial Playground Turf Can Benefit You
If you’re thinking about installing a new playground surface at your school, daycare, or
business, there are a variety of factors that should go into your decision. How safe is it? How
well will it stand the test of time? How clean will it be? How well will it drain? How much is it all going to cost? Each different type of surface material passes some of these tests, but only a proper artificial playground turf system gives you the answer that you want to hear in each of
these categories. Genesis Turf has taken artificial playground turf a step further with our 5 step playground safety system. Let’s take a closer look at how our 5 steps exceed expectations and flawlessly surpass ASTM and IPEMA standards.
Part 1: Our Powerful Drainage Base Works Wonders
The first step in our playground safety system may very well be the most important when it comes to stability and cleanliness. Genesis Turf uses an advanced drainage rock base as the foundation to our system. This foundation can drain at rates that exceed 45 inches an hour. As a result, your kids stay cleaner, unlike traditional rubber, dirt, or mulch surfaces which puddle water at the surface and create an unsightly, muddy messes. In addition, Genesis Turf artificial playground grass dries faster than any other surface. This allows your kids access to the playground immediately following rainfall without worrying about getting messy or losing traction.
Part 2: Playground Safe Padding Protects your Little Ones
Genesis Turf proprietary Safe Play Padding is the best in the business at keeping your kids free from danger. It acts as a shock-absorbing layer that cushions against any slips or falls. This padding meets ASTM F1292 requirements for a fall from 12 feet high. Our premium safety system will dramatically reduce injury and keep your kids protected. Safe Play Padding also helps our playground safety system meet requirements for certification ASTM F1487-17 from the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Associations (IPEMA). Parents, teachers, caretakers and loved ones can be rest assured when their kids are swinging from the jungle-gym above Genesis Safe Play Padding.
Part 3: Genesis Air-Drain System Speeds Up Drying
The third piece of the artificial grass puzzle comes in the form of Genesis Turf Air Drain System. This system targets difficult to drain terrain and gets rid of those poor drainage areas. The system’s enhanced drainage technology ensures that every blade of your artificial grass is safe and dry when those recess bells ring. Because safety is our priority, we’ve even added another layer of padded protection within the Air-Drain System to increase shock absorbency. This will also benefit your bottom line, as this layer allows you to meet demanding ASTM fall-height requirements without adding excess layers of padding.

Part 5: Safe Play Infill Provides a Stellar Finishing Touch
