Custom Park Surfacing: Leading the Way in Playground Safety with HB1147 Compliance

HB1147 Playground Materials

The recent passing of HB1147 in Maryland marks a pivotal shift in the playground surfacing industry, setting new benchmarks for material safety standards. This legislation aims to mitigate health risks by banning playground surfaces that contain harmful substances such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and lead. Custom Park Surfacing, a leader in eco-friendly and safe playground solutions, stands at the forefront of this change, showcasing their unwavering commitment to not only meet but exceed these new regulatory standards.

Understanding HB1147

Summary of HB1147:
HB1147 introduces stringent regulations to ensure playground environments are safer for children. By focusing on eliminating materials containing PAH, PFAS, or lead, the bill sets forth a clear directive towards healthier, more sustainable playground constructions.

Significance of Prohibiting Hazardous Materials:
The prohibition of these specific substances is a significant step towards reducing potential health risks associated with playground exposure. These materials have been identified for their toxic properties, with long-term exposure linked to various health issues. For more information on the effects of these substances, refer to EPA’s guide on hazardous substances. The bill’s focus on eliminating these risks underscores Maryland’s dedication to safeguarding public health and the environment.
