4. Why do you need playground surfacing cushion under and around playgrounds?

The surfacing under and around playground equipment is one of the most important factors in reducing the likelihood of life-threatening head injuries. A fall onto a shock absorbing surface is less likely to cause a serious head injury than a fall onto a hard surface. However, some injuries from falls, including broken limbs, may occur no matter what playground surfacing material is used. The most widely used test method for evaluating the shock absorbing properties of a playground surfacing material is to drop an instrumented metal head form onto a sample of the material and record the acceleration/time pulse during the impact. Field and laboratory test methods are described in ASTM F1292 Standard Specification for Impact Attenuation of Surface Systems Under and Around Playground Equipment.

11. What are the shipping methods?

Normally this product is shipped directly from manufacturers. Some dealers have their warehouses locally where they store this material for their customers to pick up. This becomes little expensive because there is a chance of paying freight twice. It is always better to get it shipped directly from manufacturer with the help of the local dealer of your choice to save double shipping cost. Since, 2000 LBS Super Sacks are very heavy they require trucks with lift gate to unload from the truck or use of fork lift.
