Outdoor play area flooring and new playground equipment transformed a Prep School’s playground. Hilden Oaks School & Nursery already rated ‘excellent’ for the school and ‘outstanding’ for the nursery by ofsted wanted to upgrade one of their playgrounds.
Working with SSP’s project manager Andrew Lofting the school decided on a colourful playground incorporating artificial grass and wet pour rubber with playground equipment.
The outdoor play area flooring is a safe soft flooring designed for children. The artificial grass flooring provides a change of texture to the flooring as well as a safe play surface.
The red and blue is a rubber play area flooring and is a smooth safe play surface . Rubber surfacing is popular in schools as well as parks and nurseries. Rubber play surfacing is a two layer system which is poured into place and is available in a wide range of colours.
As well as the flooring a tower climbing frame was installed . The timber tower provides opportunities for climbing as well as imaginative play. The structure is a robust climbing frame ideal for commercial play areas.
Additional playground equipment include a sand pit with a wooden sold cover , a storage area and a play shed.
The school playground project was completed during the summer break and was completed in time for the children’s return in September. Having installed playgrounds for over 20 years SSP is experienced in working to a tight schedule and with a school protective environment,
