Envirofill Installed in a Playground Application at Golden Path Academy for Performance and Safety

How do you figure out the best playground surface for your school, daycare, or park?

Naturally, you have questions:

How do we make sure kids can play safely? Will the surface stay clean?

Time for research, right?

Examples can go a long in way in making the right decision for you. So let’s take a look at a recent facility that used Envirofill for their new playground.

Golden Path Academy in Stephenson, Virginia is an education center for infants through elementary aged kids. While they were growing and expanding to a new location, they took advantage of the opportunity to build a new playground. Besides providing a fun new spot for kids to run and play, their main goal was safety.

SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay has installed many projects with Envirofill — so it was a no brainer which infill would pair best with their artificial turf to offer the highest performance and safest playground around.

“We recommended Envirofill to Golden Path Academy because they wanted the safest product in the market for a children’s playground.”

Playing outdoors is essential for kids’ emotional wellbeing. How would you like to relax with confidence because you know that the kids in your charge can swing and slide, day after day, in a safe, clean environment that also supports their physical wellbeing?

Well, that’s what SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay set out to build for Golden Path Academy — and between SYNLawn’s Super Yarn™ antimicrobial technology and our Microban®-infused turf infill, you can easily see why this playground fits the bill.

But let’s take a more detailed look so you can judge for yourself. Learn more about artificial turf playground applications here. 

Ready to dig into how artificial turf with Envirofill infill holds up to common top questions?

How can you make sure kids can play safely?

If you’re like most of our customers, keeping kids safe is your top priority when it comes to building a new playground. Indeed, safety is one reason our clients choose artificial turf for play areas. The level, even playing surface reduces tripping hazards — which means you can sit back, relax and watch your little ones run free.

And like many of the installers we work with, SYNLawn Chesapeake Bay upgraded the safety for this playground project even more by installing a two foot fall pad in their installation — to provide a soft cushion for those inevitable stumbles.

Will the surface stay clean?

Allergies? Dust? Odors?

Not a problem with artificial turf using our antimicrobial infill. And it’s a benefit our clients nearly always comment on. We designed Envirofill to not only make artificial turf even safer, but also to offer the cleanest product on the market.

That’s why we formulated Envirofill with Microban antimicrobial protection, which helps to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. So you can feel great about kids spending endless hours on the playground.

Envirofill also doesn’t track like other infills — it’s heavier and has a higher bulk density, so you won’t find it wandering around the playground or in the childrens shoes.

What do you think? Could artificial turf with Envirofill be right for your new playground, too?
