Play Grade Surfaces
Play grade bark and wood chips are materials that are safe and suitable for children's play areas, though they can also be used in general garden applications where a larger particle size bark or wood chip is preferred.
All of our play bark and wood chips are certified to stringent British standards and meet two standards, BS 4790 (ignition resistance) and BS EN 1177: 1998 (an Impact Absorbing Playground Surfacing test).
As a rule, bark is softer to the touch than wood chip and darker in appearance. Wood chips are more hard wearing and longer lasting than pure bark materials.
Our personal favourite play material is the hardwood chip. Hardwood chip is hard wearing, clean and good value.
