School Gaga Pit
School Playground Gaga Pits
Do you have a GaGa pit? Grassmats make a perfect surfacing solution.
Ga-ga is played in a large fenced in area (usually an octagon or hexagon) called a ga-ga pit. The ga-ga pit generally consists of flat walls atop a smooth We like to think a Grassmats surface. The ga-ga ball can vary in size and form, generally ranging from a foam dodgeball to a rubber kickball.
Our grass mats are an ideal solution to a variety of scenarios; from playground safety surfacing, to lawn protection, and even as an anti-slip surface behind bars or cellars.
Make sure safety is a priority for your playground
CBS News reports Emergency Rooms across the United States are treating more than 21,000 Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) each year!
Historically there have been only three options available for playground safety:
Wood Mulch. While wood Mulch is the least expensive solution, it is difficult to maintain appropriate and consistent depth to provide adequate safety levels. It can also be expensive to maintain as it is recommended that wood mulch be replaced ever year.
Recycled Rubber Mulch. Similar to wood mulch is displaced during play making it hard to maintain as well. It is recommended that Rubber Mulch be topped off every year which can be costly over the lifetime of a playground.
Pour in Place. While Pour in place provides great fall protection, it can be heated by the sun to a surface temperature of 160 degrees which has lead to thousands of cases of burned hands and bare feet each year. Did we mention that our playground mats are 25% less expensive than Pour-In-Place?
What are Grassmats? And how do they solve playground safety issues?
Because the safety of your children is priority number one, we are pleased to introduce the Grass Mats Playground Safety mats. While providing similar impact ratings, these recycled-rubber ring mats stay in place to provide consistent impact protection. The ring hole design are designed to allow grass to grow back through the mat. Coupled with the ring design prevent the mats from becoming hot to the point of injury of our children.
Design allows grass to grow with a natural look!
Rubber Grass Mats are designed to protect the ground and grass from becoming churned up and muddy; the ring-hole form allows grass to grow back through the mat, preserving the green and fresh look of your lawn!
These mats have been safety tested to and comply with ASTM F1292 and ASTM F1951 Impact Attenuation of Playground Surfacing Materials.
