Every year over 200,000 children in the US go to the ER due to a playground related injury. Almost 80%of these accidents are related to falling onto the surface and yet this is the one part of the playground environment that is almost never assessed in the field. Poured in place rubber surfaces rarely get analyzed for their impact attenuation properties. Usually what happens is the specs the installer provide the client is all there is to prove the critical fall height of the surface, yet we all know that there are many factors that can affect those specs. Install variations and errors, how the surfacing was maintained throughout the years, how clean the surface is,…etc.
