Hello all --My business partern, Meda Ling, is a landscape architect. She was cruising the Coho-L archives reading the email on pea gravel and ask me to post this information which you might find of interest:
--begin--Sources for ASTM, CPSC, IPEMA & ADA certified recreational surfacings include:
www.sof-solutions.com www.4nofault.com www.rbrubber.com www.mitchellrubber.com www.grubble.com www.softsurfaces.com www.fibar.com www.sofsurfaces.com www.surfacingsystems.comPea gravel has drawbacks in terms of accessibility, maintenance (kicking, displacement) and depths required for fall height protection. Rubber products are easier to maintain, have a relatively long life, and most are ADA compliant for wheelchair access. Interlocking rubber mat systems comply with all standards for fall height protection and comfortable for wheelchairs, and wheeled toys.
Having designed many playgrounds and helping clients make budget decisions on play area surfacing, I have always placed safety for precious ones as top priority... rubber products may be more expensive initially, but is priceless in the overall scheme of things.
Thanks for helping me advocate for the little ones!
