4 Tips for Choosing Flooring for Playground Turf
Indoor playground turf has revolutionized flooring for kids. There are many reasons why parents, caregivers, even schools and daycares elect to install artificial grass in Toronto, where kids play. Not only is indoor playground turf a time-saver for teachers, parents, and caregivers with busy schedules. Studies also show that the texture of grass, simulated by synthetic turf from Echoing Green, helps children develop and strengthen their motor skills.
If you’re one of the many people who are ready to install artificial grass in an indoor play area, read these tips to help pick the best artificial grass in Toronto.
Look for Easy to Clean Artificial Grass
Sure, all artificial grass is marketed as low-maintenance, but when you’re installing indoor playground turf for kids, the concern is cleaning turf rather than growing it. Synthetic grass for kids needs to be equipped for the messes that come with kids using it. Kid turf from Echoing Green requires a simple cleaning process that is neither time nor resource intensive. A simple rinse or wipe of synthetic turf fibres will keep artificial grass clean when spills inevitably occur.
Avoid Infections with Bacteria Resistant
Young children are vulnerable. Their immune systems are still a work in progress, so a bacteria-resistant surface is a great help in avoiding illnesses and infections. A high-quality infill is used during the installation of artificial grass in Toronto from the Echoing Green team. This infill is designed with MicroBan technology that fights the growth of bacteria and microbes, which in turn prevents unwanted staining and odours.
Durable Turf Stands the Test of Time
With kids of any age, indoor playground turf should be able to withstand daily use. More often than not, children do not know their own strength and cause damage to the things around them by pulling, digging, scratching, jumping, or whatever else they find riveting at the time. With an inferior product, daily use of indoor playground turf could cut its lifespan short, destroying the functionality and appeal of artificial grass in Toronto. At Echoing Green, our turf is designed and manufactured for longevity which is reinforced during artificial grass installation, where the grass is fastened securely to the ground by experts.
Customization Makes Indoor Playground Turf Fun
Natural grass pretty much has to be green, but with artificial grass in Toronto, you should be able to get creative and customize colours and patterns for more fun and vibrant child-like environment. At Echoing Green, we supply custom artificial grass in Toronto, so you can mix and match colours for your indoor play area. Colourful turf is more than just exciting and attractive. It presents an excellent opportunity for young preschool-aged children to teach colours and aid cognitive development.
Artificial Grass in Toronto You Can Trust
At Echoing Green, we understand that children are delicate, and the equipment around them, even down to the flooring, must be reliable and of high quality. We offer artificial grass installation for outdoor or indoor playground turf using tested EchoPlay padding designed to improve the shock-absorbency of flooring and minimize the potential for injuries. All of our grasses also come with a 10-year warranty.
