Safety First on Turf Tek USA Playgrounds

Safety is always of the utmost importance when it comes to children. That's why public playgrounds such as schools and parks should look to artificial grass as the safety surface of choice. Playground turf by Turf Tek provides a safe, low-maintenance, long-lasting surface that can stand up to whatever your little players dish out. Our playground underlayment system, with our exclusive padding, turf, and infill, is safer than mulch, dirt, or even natural grass. It ensures a soft landing every time, and our patented "Heat Block" technology can keep your play area up to 17.5°F cooler than other artificial grass systems.

Turf Tek USA is perfect for the following applications:

  • Commercial playgrounds
  • Day Care yards and play areas
  • School yards and playgrounds
  • Churches, synagogues, temples, etc…
  • Public parks, courtyards and common areas
  • Anywhere you need a durable, beautiful, grass-like surface!
