TigerTurf turned the top of an underground car park in Albany into a cheerful multi-coloured, multifunctional
playground. That’s a smart idea!
The existing concrete base was topped
with a waterproofing layer to prevent
water from seeping into the car park
beneath, so the installation team were
careful to use adhesives that would not
react with the waterproofing substance.
In a blink of an eye (maybe a little longer) a boring concrete pad became a miniature park, with a half-basketball court, a colourful children’s play area and a lush lawn. It will look great all year round, no matter if there is frost, weeks of rain, or weeks of drought. None of it needs watering, and the children can run around bare-foot with no prickles to cause tears.
The children’s play equipment had a critical fall criteria of 1.6m, so the TigerTurf team installed a 40mm rubber pad beneath the colourful, hardwearing TigerPlay turf. No grazes or broken bones if little ones tumble over, or big ones, for that matter!
The basketball players on the half-court have TigerTurf Tournament to play on – a multi-sport turf that is ideal for many different sports and games, being durable, economical, requiring very little maintenance and perfect for installation over a concrete or asphalt base. Summer Envy describes itself, beautifully.
Just like a natural summer lawn, with several shades of green and a sun-kissed tinge, but better still, it looks great all year round, year after year. Lucky apartment dwellers to have their
own fully fenced, private recreational area for throwing a basketball around in, sitting on benches chatting, or relaxing on a soft, lush lawn, while children play safely.
