Another elementary school playground surfacing project is the Savoy Elementary School, part of the District of Columbia public school system, located at 2400 Shannon Place SE, Washington, DC 20020.
Flexi-Pave as tree surrounds
A notable aspect of this installation is the incorporation of Flexi-Pave as tree surrounds to cover for the root systems of the trees that are in the playground. Both the poured rubber and Flexi-Pave are porous surfaces so water gets to the tree roots.
Also, because Flexi-Pave is flexible, the growth of the tree is not inhibited. The flexible nature of Flexi-Pave helps prevent settling and breaking up of the pavement by the tree roots. By eliminating uneven surfaces, this type of porous surface significantly reduces maintenance and potential injuries.
Poured rubber reduces the risk of injuries
Again, because of the design and construction of the playground surface, fall attenuation reduces the risk of injuries among the students who play here during the school day and children who visit on the weekends.
Both of these paving materials are ideal for projects like these. Do you have an upcoming project that requires innovative, environmentally friendly solutions? Contact us today – our professional team is ready to help!
