What is SmartPlay?

We design our Smartplay flooring to improve safety when using rubber grass mats for fall height protection. With a built in shock pad, it offers an enhanced safety surfacing system for natural play environments. The mats utilise a blend of recycled, reclaimed and natural rubber. Therefore, Smartplay surfaces are eco-friendly and removes the need for padding or metal fibres in the mat. 

The two products that can be paired with Smartplay are Firesmart or Ecosmart. A superior fire retardant grass mat, FireSmart has become the industry standard for fire retardant surfacing. This surface innovation has established PlaySmart as the market leader in grass matting. EcoSmart is a high-quality rubber grass mat for playgrounds and recreational areas from PlaySmart, the market leader in safety surfacing. By combining either of these two products, the rubber mat honeycomb structure of the Smart Grass Mats will retain the natural look of grass.

Why Choose the SmartPlay Smart Grass Mats System?

Using the products together will positivity impact the durability and safety of your playground surfaces. We recommend using SmartPlay as a solution for various ground conditions, flat or contoured. Additionally, they reduce play surface maintenance and improve the look of the area by stopping the mat from sinking in wet or muddy areas. This extra protection encourages grass to grow back in action areas in a matter of weeks.

SmartPlay is best for areas where you wish to increase fall protection for certain play equipment. We recommend this for areas with an over two-metre critical fall height or where the grass is eroding. This is because the mat ensures grass and land retention to help with erosion control.

The process of Smartplay installation:

  1. Assess the space and give a quote. The flooring can be installed directly onto a grass base to reduce groundwork costs
  2. Ground preparation
  3. Install SmartPlay shock pad
  4. Cover with soil and grass seed
  5. Install either Ecosmart or Firesmart grass mats
  6. Grass will naturally grow through the shock pad and grass mat over time
  7. Post installation is very low maintenance, all you need to do is cut the grass
