Product Description

Safer garden play

When it comes to the safety of your children, there can be no compromise.

Our soft play bark will cushion the inevitable falls your children are likely to have from time to time, helping to reduce cuts, scrapes and bruises which may otherwise occur. Play bark is extremely popular both for both domestic and commercial climbing frames and a common part of outdoor play equipment. It can be used on any of our wooden climbing frames, tree houses or garden swings or as part of your own DIY climbing frame project at home.

Play bark is ideal for children up to six years old as it will absorb the impact for this weight and age, although it still provides a softer landing and protection for everybody else too.

The natural choice

This natural, eye pleasing safety surfacing is designed to blend seamlessly with your natural garden environment and even has a pleasant forest aroma. Produced from a well-graded pine bark, it is loose on impact and absorbs surface material.

Play bark is extremely versatile and is tested for wind resistance and fire retardation. As a free draining material rain water will not be a problem, ensuring maintenance is minimal.

Safety standards

The play bark has been designed to meet high British standards at bark depths of 300mm, 200mm and 100mm.

At these depths the critical fall heights are:

  • 300mm 6.01 metres
  • 200mm 3.92 metres
  • 100mm 1.33 metres

If the bark is laid to the correct depth to suit your climbing frame platform or swing frame, your child will be safe should they fall or tumble.

Is play bark right for you?

Our play bark is available in 3.15 cubic metres and can be delivered in one large bag, on a pallet or in a variety of smaller bags to suit your needs.

At such a large quantity, this choice of safety surfacing is most suitable for larger climbing frames and projects at home.

Top Tip: If you are looking for a more cost effective way to protect your children as they play, you may wish to consider our heavy duty rubber grass mats which can both be used individually or laced next to each other to form a larger safety zone around your play area.

The mesh design of each mat, allows areas of grass to breath and grow naturally if you so choose.

What's Included

  • 3.15 Cubic Metres Of Play Bark Play bark safety surfacing is produced from a well-graded pine bark, which is an absorbing surface material. Your children will be in safe hands should they trip, fall or tumble around their climbing frame or tree house or even if they hop from their swing in a daring fashion.

  • Delivered packed in 75 litre bags on a standard pallet

General Specification

Extra Fun & Games

As an alternative to wooden play bark, we also offer rubber garden mats which can be used in single areas of high wear around your climbing frame and garden swing area. As with the play bark, the rubber matting is designed to blend seamlessly with natural your garden environment. This time in a lawn friendly green.
