Underneath it All

The most important part of a playground is what lies beneath. More than 200,000 children each year go to the hospital emergency room with injuries associated with playground equipment, most due to inadequate surfacing. A dependable, consistent surfacing system is the best means to a child's protection. A new innovation comes to the surface with Miracle's new PlayTerrainTM Synthetic Turf. It's easy to install, durable and provides fast drainage to play areas with a plush, carpet-like feel. PlayTerrainTM synthetic turf blends substance with style to offer an appealing natural grass look. When safety and class matter, step onto the future.
