Discover why SYNLawn Houston is at the top of the list for playground safety surfacing

When it comes to your kids, nothing is more important than their safety. When it comes to selecting the perfect play set, safety is your number one concern. After selecting your kids’ play set consider the playground surface underneath. Most injuries on playgrounds occur as the result of a fall on surfaces that are abrasive, hard or just plain unsafe. That’s where the SYNLawn® Playground System comes in. We’ve developed the safest, most consistent playground surface anywhere. Our system is designed for all types of playground equipment and protects children from falls as high as 12-feet in accordance with IPEMA standards and CSA approved fall attenuation.

Features

There are many options available for playground surfaces. Mulch, pea gravel, rubber or even another artificial grass product have all been used for playgrounds. None of those can even compare to the SYNLawn® Playground System.

Traditional options fall short when it comes to consistent safety protection. Surfaces constructed of mulch, gravel or sand tend to be less safe as time goes by. High foot traffic areas such as those circling the merry-go-rounds, under the swings or at the landing of a slide tend to displace the material exposing the hard ground underneath.

Rubber surface playgrounds do offer more consistent protection. However, these surfaces can create a host of new concerns. In the summer they absorb the heat. In the winter they can become hard and brittle which will compromise the integrity of the protection it offers.

The SYNLawn® Playground System is the only playground surface that provides consistent safety standards in high traffic areas, in any weather, at any height, and under all types of play equipment. Your lawn will have all this, plus the look of beautiful green grass.

While safety is our number one concern, there are many other advantages to using the SYNLawn® synthetic grass Playground System.

 

Wide Variety of Artificial Turf Products

All of our grass products can be used for play areas. Choosing the right product depends on the playground equipment and application.

Safety built in

The soft padding is installed under the grass and will not be displaced even with high activity.

Non abrasive

No more cuts and bruises at the playground. SYNLawn® is soft to the touch and easy on the skin.

No grass stains

Kids stay clean and out of trouble when mom goes to wash their clothes.

Non-allergenic

Happier healthier kids. Allergies caused by natural grass are a thing of the past.

Superior drainage

SYNLawn® drains at a rate of 30” an hour. It’s always ready for play, even immediately after a rain storm.

Stable in all climates

Winter, spring, summer and fall SYNLawn® provides protection all year round.

ASTM tested

ASTM HIC approved tested.

Easily replaceable TrampleZones™

Replace only the high-traffic zones without replacing the entire playground.

Installation Options

Playground equipment comes in many forms and is used in many types of playgrounds. The SYNLawn® Playground System is comprehensive, versatile system that allows for ANY type of play equipment. We don’t install one product the same for every piece of equipment.

  • The height of the equipment
  • The areas of high use or TrampleZones
  • HIC (Head Injury Criteria) requirements
  • The customer’s preference of grass products

The height of the equipment determines the highest possible fall from a child playing on the equipment. We then can determine what measures to take when installing the foam padding protection.

The areas of high-use are possible candidates for the TrampleZone replaceable products.

The HIC requirements are necessary for building the right surface to protect against possible head injury to a child. The rest is up to you. We have the largest selection of synthetic grass products to choose from. Simply select the grass you like best or one suited to your region and we’ll take care of building your perfect playground.

TrampleZone package

The patter of little feet can cause premature wear in places around the playground equipment. Instead of replacing the entire playground surface, this upgrade allows you to only replace areas where it needs it. Under swings, around the merry-go-round, beneath the see-saw and the base of a slide are common areas for TrampleZones.

Commercial fall rating package.

Commercial use of the SYNLawn® Playground System is available with certified ASTM HIC tested products for heights up to 12-feet.

Environment

SYNLawn® is green on top, in the middle and even underneath. Beyond the color, SYNLawn® goes a long way towards better environmental sustainability which makes it truly “green.” We take measurable steps in providing products that have an extended lifespan, reduce your carbon footprint, conserve water, and use renewable and recycled materials in manufacturing.

Thanks to our exclusive EnviroLoc™ Backing System, SYNLawn’s backing is approximately 60-70% green by weight. The EnviroLoc System is an engineered component system which contributes to environmental sustainability. The first component is the primary backing which helps extend the product life cycle by using 10% less material that is stronger and has superior dimensional stability compared to traditional artificial grasses. Product lifespan is further extended on the face by incorporating nylon 6 in the fibers adding up to 50% longer life. The second component is the secondary backing which incorporates BioCel™ technology. BioCel uses an environmentally-sensitive polyurethane that replaces a large portion of the petroleum-based polymers with soybean oil (renewable resources) and adds Celceram™ (recycled product of coal combustion) for further strength and stability.

Green building and LEED® certification

Using SYNLawn® helps environmentally conscience builders and specifiers with LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) project certification. Using SYNLawn® with EnviroLoc can contribute LEED® points in the areas of Water Efficient Landscaping, Recycled Content, Rapidly Renewable Material and Innovation in Design.

SYNRye 214 Review


Years ago I contemplated getting an artificial lawn, but they were so cheap looking and felt the same way. Now I own one and am the talk of the neighborhood. It cleans up quick and looks good year round. one of the better choices i made, and the installation went off without a hitch. it looks the same as the day it was installed.
Author: Fishy



We have had our product for about a year. It cleans up with water and we vacuum it often. The color is good, the feel great. We use it in 1/4 of a water conservative landscape and it is under our 'meditation' tent. We so totally love this product.

"It has a natural color and texture that fools everyone that does not know it issynthetic. The lower layer of realistic thatch is the key to its natural look. I installed it myself and can truthfully say it was quite easy. A larger job might requireprofessional assistance."
Author: billquerque



We bought this and had it installed back in September and it is now March and we have absolutely loved every minute of having it. The dogs love it, the grandchild loves it. It is WONDERFUL! Everything about the process -- working with the Synlawn people, the installers, questions answered before, during, and after --everything was excellent, the people were friendly, very knowledgeable, honest, and quite helpful.
Author: Patsyanne



Looks much better than alternative synthetic lawns - passers-by could be excused for thinning it was real grass. 1 inch thick thatch provides good cushioning. The specs for this grass says it does not require infill & that is probably a fair statement; though the long blades do tend to stay down rather than bounce back in areas where you might have stood for a few minutes. Having just purchased this product my review is limited not knowing how it will stand up over time.

Only had it for a week and lots of compliments from the neighbors.

We are very pleased with the installation of our new lawn! We've received multiple comments about how beautiful it looks!
