The woodfibre surfacing is manufactured using 100% seasoned, recycled soft wood fibres that knit together to form a stable, long-lasting surface, giving excellent absorption against impact. It's an ideal all-weather surface, which provides excellent drainage so that children can start playing almost as soon as it stops raining. Playground surfacing is a fundamental element of playground safety and as the preferred choice of many local authorities and county councils NuLife Playground Wood Fibre Surfacing is clearly a leader is this field.

Recommended Installation Method

There are two basic installation options available.

  • Above Ground Level Pit – This is the cheapest and most popular option as it requires no excavation. The area is marked out with pressure treated wood to the required depth and we recommend the use of a geotextile membrane all of which are available from Connaught Timber Products. Chips are laid to required depth.

  • Below Ground Level Pit – Area marked out with pressure treated wood and soil is excavated to the required depth. Area is covered with geotextile membrane before adding chips.

Maintenance of NuLife Playground Wood Fibre Surfacing is simple, requiring raking over the surface and occasional topping up.
