CombiFlex® Projects – Childcare Centre Playgrounds

Project: Children’s play area in Child Care Centre Brisbane

Requirement: Drainage and Critical fall height –  reduced surface heat, longer life of artificial grass, good drainage and reduced playground injuries.

Solution: CombiFlex® + CombiMesh under  artificial grass in Child Care Centre.

CombiFlex® provides critical fall height in children’s playgrounds.For an equivalent level of critical fall height CombiFlex weighs approximately 12% of the equivalent SBR.

Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)  binder/adhesive additives are not present in CombiFlex®.

Reduced wear and reduced injuries with CombiFlex® and artificial grass

With expected changes in playground standards requiring critical fall height testing annually, CombiFlex® offers a durable long term solution for reliable critical fall height surfacing with a 5 year warranty. CombiFlex® sites have had consistent ASNZ422:2016 critical fall height results without deterioration or erosion.

CombiFlex® is made from a high impact  polypropylene copolymer and provides excellent critical fall height in children’s playgrounds. Play areas using just wet pour materials ( ie not using wetpour over CombiFlex® ) have varying reductions of critical fall height over time as the surface compacts and wears down. This results in safety reduction, ongoing maintenance and frequent replacement.

CombiFlex® requires minimal adhesive and is not impacted by the current global adhesive shortage, longer life and dryer surfaces given the drainage functionality.
