Ecosafe Certified Soft Fall

Ecosafe is a certified soft fall designed for use as a playground mulch.

It has a medium consistency and has been blended to minimise sharp edges. Ecosafe has been tested in accordance with AS/NZ 4422:1996.

Falls are the most common cause of serious playground injuries to children. Impact absorbing material such as Ecosafe Certified Softfall assists in reducing the risk of injury if a child falls from playground equipment.
