When working with different school districts and municipalities, Natural Solutions takes on a full-service approach. Educating our clients allows them to make the most informed decisions that will not only improve the aesthetics of their playgrounds but also improve the plant and bed life of their landscape. By taking this approach, Natural Solutions assists clients in reducing residual costs that are usually associated with poor plant & soil life creating a healthier landscape environment. Natural Solutions ONLY uses "certified" and "regulated" material that has been tested and approved to be compliant with governing bodies that inspect playground surfaces
OUR SPECIALISTS INSTALL CERTIFIED MATERIAL
Natural Solutions provides Maintenance Programs and New Installation of Engineered Wood Fiber and Certified Playground Safety Surfacing Material for school districts, municipalities and equipment installers to ensure that playground surfacing regulations are met.
WE PROVIDE EXPERT ANALYSIS OF MATERIAL
We understand that your playground is a critical piece of your school yard and we want our clients to know that we are there for them to help them accomplish the dreams that they may have for their playground. We understand that children play on playgrounds and it is the injury statistics of children getting hurt on playgrounds that we make all efforts to reduce. We use a monitoring device that is designed to assess the injury risk levels should a six year old child fall onto the surface. The circumference and mass of this unit has been produced to the same specifications of the six year old head form used in crash test dummies by the automotive industry and by helmet manufacturers. It is the most applicable device to assess your playground safety surface. This test typically can cost in excess of $1,000.00 but Natural Solutions will provide this service for $250.00 for any active client and $500.00 for any client that Natural Solutions has not previously worked with.
Monitor and test playground surfaces
Annual maintenance programs are encouraged to ensure that playground surfaces are compliant with the ADA (American Disabilities Act), NSC (National Safety Council), USCPSC (United States Consumer Product Safety Commission), ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) and IPEMA (International Playground Equipment Manufacturer's Association) Standards ***failure to comply with regulations could potentially result in fines and temporary shut down of playgrounds until surfaces are compliant. Natural Solutions has the ability to monitor and test playground surfaces to ensure that surfacing is compliant with the following categories
Head Injury Criterion Score (HIC)
Maximum G Forces at Impact (Gmax)
Velocity at Impact
Calculated Fall Height
