The shock-absorbant stanchions by SofSurfaces keep playground injuries down, allow for good water drainage, and are lightweight and inexpensive. An intelligent choice around the play area - SofTILE KrosLOCK® eliminates harmful buried debris, muddy conditions and most importantly, protects your children from cuts, scrapes and broken bones.Falls to the surface are the #1 contributing factor in playground injuries. Playground Guys are proud to be able to offer the very best in surfacing products from superior manufacturers. SofSURFACES Inc. is the industry leader in the design, manufacture and installation of locking safety tiles. Their commitment to safe, clean and economical play spaces is evident in their leading product line, SofTILE.

With SofTILE, tiles are locked together using the KrosLOCK system, and are also raised off the ground with shock-absorbant stanchions. An advantage SofTILE gives our customers is a unitary safety surface that installs simply, precisely, and securely with a minimum amount of labour and adhesive. This eliminates potential problems due to expansion and contraction of individual tiles. When the surface you wish to add fall protection to has a unique shape, contour or thickness, SofCRETE becomes the solution. SofCRETE pours in place effortlessly, conforming around posts and squeezing into tight corners to create a beautiful, seamless, one-piece protective surface.

WoodCarpet® is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to design accessibility into and around key recreational features.
