Sur­face so­lu­tions for schools

The Australian Education Reporter - - BUILDING LEARNING THROUGH DESIGN -

LEAD­ING sur­fac­ing com­pany Syn­thetic Grass & Rub­ber Sur­faces is a one-stop-shop spe­cial­is­ing in rub­ber and syn­thetic grass, across mul­ti­ple ap­pli­ca­tions, in NSW schools.

Es­tab­lished in 1984 by man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Mark Cun­ning­ham, the com­pany has earned a stel­lar rep­u­ta­tion over the years not only for high-qual­ity prod­ucts in­stalled, au­then­tic pro­fes­sion­al­ism, on-time in­stal­la­tion but also for their to­tal care through­out and af­ter a project.

SG&RS prod­uct base in­cludes a wide se­lec­tion of syn­thetic turf and rub­ber sur­faces, in­clud­ing a long-last­ing be­spoke soft fall safety rub­ber for chil­dren’s play ar­eas.

“Soft fall is a generic name for a safety sur­face, in­stalled as per the Aus­tralian stan­dard,” Mr Cun­ning­ham said, “work­ing as a shock ab­sorber for HIC which is what we call Head Im­pact Cri­te­ria.”

The non-toxic, non-al­ler­genic and non-slip rub­ber sur­fac­ing comes in a range of colours and can be poured into po­si­tion to suit in­di­vid­ual re­quire­ments and spa­ces.

“We in­stall ev­ery­thing from play­grounds and an­cil­lary equip­ment to walk­ways, en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas, Long Jump Run Ups, Net­ball Courts, Mul­ti­pur­pose Courts, Ten­nis Courts, Free Play Ar­eas - rub­ber or syn­thetic grass un­der columns and big un­der­cover COLA ar­eas; any­where that it could be put into a school, we can in­stall it,” he said.

Mr Cun­ning­ham said amongst the many ben­e­fits of in­stalling syn­thetic turf and rub­ber in schools, it is pri­mar­ily in­stalled to re­duce main­te­nance and in­crease dura­bil­ity in high traf­fic zones.

“Whether we’re in­stalling a sports field, chil­dren’s play­ground, or court, we only pro­duce a safe place to play with our grass and rub­ber, us­ing bright colours, unique de­signs and even 3D an­i­mals and shapes, creat­ing an ex­cit­ing and fun en­vi­ron­ment!” he said.
