When it comes to your kids, nothing is more important than safety. That is why SYNLawn Gillette continues to refine our synthetic turf products and installation standards for IPEMA compliant SYNLawn Gillette Playground Systems.
As a proud member of IPEMA (International Playground Equipment Manufacturers Association), SYNLawn Gillette is proud to announce the certification of several playground installation methods.
With an IPEMA certified installation you can rest easy knowing your SYNLawn Gillette Playground System is a safe play area tested by an independent 3rd party, specific to public safety. SYNLawn Gillette also offers customers a Certificate of Compliance verifying an IPEMA certified installation.
In the interest of public safety, The International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association “IPEMA” provides a Third Party Certification Service where an independent laboratory validates a participant’s certification of conformance to ASTM F1292 Standard for Impact Attenuation of Surface Systems Under and Around Playground Equipment safety standards for their products.
In addition to the safety components of an IPEMA certified installation, SYNLawn Gillette was among the first to recognize the need to create grass products and alternate installation methods incorporating additional safety measures when it comes to play areas. With a fastener-free installation SYNLawn Gillette ’s playground systems remove the possibility of little ones being injured by sharp objects.
Additionally, SYNLawn Gillette ’s exclusive Heatblock Technology™ reflects infrared rays from the sun for cooler surface temperatures. Furthermore, SYNLawn Gillette ’s playground systems may also include exclusive TrampleZones™ (IPEMA Certified for fall heights up to 9-feet) in high-impact areas to increase child safety and extend the lifespan of the play area.
For designers and specifiers this provides the opportunity to offer IPEMA Certified installations which provide an end-user the highest level of ASTM F1292 compliance, the ability to write a specification offering an IPEMA Certified installation, and the confidence that you are offering a safe playground installation solution.
IPEMA Certified installation methods include the use of:
- SYNRye 211 (10’ critical fall height)
- SYNBermuda 211 (10′ critical fall height)
- SYNTipede 354 (9’ critical fall height)
