Looking for a lush and safe turf that replicates the fresh look of grass? 

It may look like grass but PermaPlay serves a much greater purpose in a fall zone. We developed this super-realistic synthetic grass, backed by a long-lasting shock absorbing underlay, as a more natural-looking alternative to rubber playground surfacing

The Critical Fall Height (CFH) provided by PermaPlay depends on the thickness of the shock pads that are installed underneath. Our shock pads are made to 30mm thickness, or alternatively, a poured rubber shock pad surface can be put down to deliver a CFH from 1.5m to 3.0m. 

Perma play comes in rolls of 1.8m or 3.6m wide.

Certified to S5828:2004 in New Zealand and Australia. 


5 Year Warranty

Certified Installation

Recycled Rubber

Safety Certified


Maximum Shock Absorbency

The shockpad underlay acts like the ultimate safety blanket for your play surface, helping project from any falls to minimize injury. The advanced design comes in a few different depths depending on your requirements. 

Premium Turf

PermaPlay is designed with a top layer of premium turf that helps keep surfaces cool, and soft all year long. The turf layer is engineered to be UV resistant and withstand dire weather conditions. 

Maximum Safety

PermaPlay offers a range of Critical Fall Height factors from 1.5m up to 3.0m, delivering a surface that helps to protect those using the play space. The higher the equipment the thicker the shock pad, and the more cushioning provided. 

Environmentally Friendly

The shock-pad layer of the surface is designed using either pour rubber granules or recycled foam materials that are compacted together into the thickness required for your space.
