Ask JW: Playground Friction Mats

Being a veteran of the synthetic turf industry, I have witnessed the “end of life” on thousands of installations that lived past their warranty. I have also seen new installations prematurely deteriorate the same year they were installed. Much of the deterioration was a result of excessive friction. I have expressed my concerns about wear and tear in high traffic areas in many of my columns and thought it would be advantageous to dive deeper into installing traffic mats.

This month, ASK JW will teach how excessive friction can destroy your installations and what can be done to prevent this and get more life out of your playground surface.
