Safety surfacing is a basic requirement for flexible play and equipment areas. At Creo, we try to maximise the use of a surface, either using colour, design, or by providing a range of textures and natural benefits.
Colours can be used in a wet poured rubber surface to define areas and themes. Danger areas, such as the end of a slide, can be highlighted and ground patterns in the surface can deliver a theme.
More value can be added through the topography of the surface or through useful surfaces like paths, bike tracks and circuits.
A range of surfaces is ideal on a site, creating a balance of materials and textures, natural and synesthetic, providing multiple sensory experiences within the playspace.
