Benefits & Basic Specification

Benefits & Basic Specification

Engineered wood fiber is a popular choice for budget conscious playgrounds. Engineered wood fiber will require on-going maintenance and occasional topping off during its lifetime. This maintenance will help to maintain the recommended compacted material depth, thus keeping the surface compliant with applicable standards.


  • Wood fiber is non-toxic, and does not contain paint, chemicals, or additives. It contains minimal bark, and is free of twigs, leaf debris, and other organic material.
  • Carefully following the installation details allows engineered wood fiber to possibly be installed by volunteer labor.
  • Engineered wood fiber gives your playground an attractive, natural look.
  • Economical initial cost.
  • Loose fill materials aid in the protection of children who experience lateral falls.

Basic Specification

  • Product is manufactured of size-controlled softwoods and or hardwoods which average 1"-2" in length and contain a maximum of 15% fines to aid in compaction.
  • This product meets all applicable ASTM standards. For more information, please refer to our complete product specification.
