Artificial Grass Improves Playground Safety:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, emergency departments treat more than 200,000 children aged 14 and younger for playground injuries each year in the United States. Falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children, and many playgrounds have unsafe surfaces that exacerbate the injuries caused by falling from a slide, swing or jungle gym. Traditional playground surfaces like grass, gravel, woodchips and dirt are unsurprisingly dangerous for everyday play, and more schools, cities and homes than ever are making the transition to artificial grass from SYNLawn Houston as an alternative playground surface.

When it comes to your children’s safety, SYNLawn is leading the way in safe artificial grass products that are specially designed for playgrounds. As a proud member of the International Playground Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA), our playground turf is safe for kids of all ages to play, explore and have fun without the worry of injury. Our IPEMA certified playground grass is verified by independent laboratories for conformance to ASTM F1292 Standard for Impact Attenuation of Surface Systems Under and Around Playground Equipment safety standards.

Our exclusive, state-of-the-art HeatBlock technology helps to keep the lawn’s surface temperature cool by reflecting infrared rays, and our TrampleZones make it easy and affordable for schools, parks and homes to replace their natural grass in high-traffic areas if it eventually wears out. In addition to the safety features of artificial playground grass, the look and feel of the turf itself is a major benefit. The turf looks and feels like real grass and is resilient to the roughest play. You can rest assured that children will be able to play as often as desired without the worry of grass stains while your playground maintains its green, lush appearance.

The superior safety and aesthetic features of artificial grass in playgrounds have already been noted by several athletic organizations and schools. One such school in Blue Springs, Missouri reported a 20 percent decrease in injuries since SYNLawn playground grass applications were installed, and children were able to spend 15 percent more time playing because the turf was able to quickly drain water and snow after inclement weather conditions. As a result, The Blue Springs School District outfitted 33 playgrounds in 12 schools within the district with playground grass, and SYNLawn was awarded the John Preston Award for Child Safety, given annually to a group or organization that has made a difference in creating S.A.F.E. play areas for children.

SYNLawn Houston is proud to help schools, cities and residential playgrounds in Houston install a safer playing environment. We are proudly recognized as the brand leader in the world of artificial turf as well as Houston’s only authorized supplier and installer of SYNLawn products.
