“The children of Fairhaven School love the feel of their TigerTurf playground. They lie on it, enjoying the texture and the warmth of the turf” says Diane Whyte, the school principal .
The Napier school needed a surface that met playground regulations in terms of critical fall heights, drained well, and was easily maintained. The playground surface had to be non-toxic and durable, with a natural, appealing surface.
Fairhaven School principal, Diane Whyte, tells us the children can now ride their scooters and bikes easily on their playground. They can navigate their wheelchairs freely, without the bumps and uneven patches they had to contend with previously.
The playground surface has a reassuring safety fall rating, a special requirement for these children, who can now play outdoors safely all year round. Many of them are sensory learners, and the warm, soft texture of the TigerTurf Summer Envy play area invites the children to roll around, enjoying the feel of the surface against their skin.
A clean, dry, stable play surface has brought real benefits to the children at Fairhaven School, and that’s brought great pleasure to the team here at TigerTurf.
