Five benefits of implementing wood chips in your playground over any other material

  1. They are one of the most affordable options. Wood chips are one of the cheapest playground covering options when compared to pea gravel and sand. While the price is a very appealing one, that doesn’t mean that the quality will be compromised either!
  2. Playground wood chips are easy to install. Compared to poured rubber or rubber tiles, wood chips take under 24 hours to fully install. You can rest assured that just because the job is speedy doesn’t mean it makes it less safe for all kids and adults using the space! 
  3. Our wood chips are fully certified and tested. When you purchase your playground chips from us, you will be confident knowing that our supplies have gone through a rigorous testing and verification process. Our wood chips have passed all levels of impact absorption testing, material purity and wheelchair access.
  4. Wood chips have superior shock absorption. Wood chips have a much higher cushioning rating due to the wood fibres being absorbent of an individual’s body weight. In fact, wood chips have the ability to prevent injuries from heights up to 10 feet while still being sturdy enough to accommodate wheelchairs.
  5. There are no dangerous chemicals released into the air. Because wood playground chips are manufactured from 100% virgin wood fibre, there are no substances that have the potential of rising and polluting the air. Chemicals such as chromated copper arsenate won’t be present when your child is having fun on the playground!


Feel comfortable knowing that all questions can be answered by professionals that care, no matter how big or small!

Over 50,000 playgrounds across North America have playground wood chips installed on their surfaces! With schools running in full swing, playgrounds must take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of all using the space.
