Product Description

Derived primarily from British hardwood species, this wood chip is a very versatile product ideal for play areas and pathways used by children of all ages.

Wood shards:

Sustainably enjoying natures natural products such as wood chip or play bark has so many wonderful advantages however, during the manufacturing and screening process a small proportion of larger pieces of wood, ie ‘wood shards’ may fall through the screens and be contained in the finished product. If these wood shards are considered to be a hazard and in line with good practice ‘post installation’, they can be physically removed, by hand.

Topping up existing play areas:

Although it is very common place to consider topping up a play area with new ‘play bark’ we strongly advise due consideration is given to the condition of the existing material which has inevitably decomposed.

Quite often this decomposed material has become extremely compressed and firm, especially in dry conditions and if new play bark is laid on top, especially at minimal depth, the new material will wear extremely quickly simply due to abrasion!

This situation applies more so with the chunkier types of material where it requires greater depth to knit together to provide settlement and therefore to provide a safe surface. The application of new play bark always has to have a credible depth to be functional and to perform correctly.

If the older material has become very hard and compact, consider removing it and replacing with new, this way it will remove the issues as mentioned above and will also prevent the new play bark spilling out of the play area due to the surfacing being too high.
