Project Overview

Playground at Indian Rocks, Florida

December 2011

UltraBaseSystems® panels continue to show their versatility with this recently completed playground installation.

This concrete, carpet-covered site was not only an eyesore but potentially dangerous for the pre-kindergarten children.

A softer blend of UltraBaseSystems® panels is installed over the concrete slab in just a few hours.

The flexibility of the softer panels make easy work of cutting around equipment and shade tarp poles and flexing the panels into position around these fixed obstructions.

If desired, a thin layer of needle punch geotextile can be placed under the panels as a sound deadening agent to prevent any tapping of the panels on the concrete slab due to uneven surface areas.

Polypropylene turf is cut and meticulously fit around the metal poles and seamed. The turf is cut to fit and stapled around the perimeter top edge then folded over the panels and secured to create a clean finished edge.

The playground equipment is reassembled and the new shade protector is installed, which will be a welcome feature for this Florida installation.

In a day and a half this 750 sq ft playground is completed and ready for years of safe fun.
