Uses of tumble turf

Tumble Turf is the natural alternative to standard playground safety surfacing. High abrasion resistance and EN1177 compliance makes this the go-to surface for all natural play areas. The surface is ideal under all forms of play equipment, with varying depths to meet the required critical fall height. Tumble Turf can be installed over humps and mounds to provide a hard wearing play environment.

EN1177 Certified Surface
