UJSPORTSLABS first playground tests in South Africa

UJSportslabs test their first play facilities in SA Play surfaces using artificial turf and a shock pad is a relatively new approach in SA. Testing these surfaces is also very new and checks in particular for Head Injury Criteria (HIC) is now required and regulated by a SASB standard. The tests were commissioned by Van Dyke Carpets and their Easigrass licence.
