According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), “sixty percent of all playground injuries sustained, where involved with equipment, occur as a result of a fall to the surface.” At Cowart we recognize the value of play, while understanding the importance of safety in our playgrounds. Our playground surfacing material, KID-SAFE™, is a finely ground hardwood mulch manufactured specifically for use of all outdoor playgrounds.
