Eco Bark & Mulch: Playground Chippings questions

How do I lay bark chippings for a play area?

When laying bark chippings, it is crucial to ensure the depth correlates to the potential fall heights. A fall height of 1.6m needs 10cm, 4.1m needs 20cm & 5m needs 30cm. This ensures the surface is compliant with EN 1177 safety standards.

Why should I use bark chippings for my playground surface?

Our Bark chippings are certified to playground safety standards (EN1177:2008), meaning when applied to correct depths, it provides a safer surface. The darker colour of the bark also looks fantastic, meaning playgrounds and play areas have a professional, premium appearance.

Are playground chippings safe for falls? What depth is required?

Yes, playground bark chippings can be safe for falls, but depth is crucial. Always follow safety standards! For commercial playgrounds, ensure a depth of 30cm (12 inches). In home settings, 15cm (6 inches) is the minimum recommendation to minimise injury risk. Choose appropriately sized chippings based on the fall height and opt for certified products for added peace of mind.
