Protection Barriers

Playground Protection Barriers

Playground protection barriers can be used to prevent mulch from being spread outside of the playground area. Other types of barriers can ensure that playgrounds are fully protected from nearby traffic. The best way to keep children as safe as possible while they enjoy a playground is to use both types of protection barriers in conjunction with each other.

Rubber Curb Playground Barriers

This type of barrier is used to create a protective surface barrier around a playground. Because rubber curb playground protection barriers are made from recycled rubber, this surface is completely safe to have around children. Not only is the surface non-toxic, but it's smooth and seamless. This makes it possible for the rubber curb to create a fully secure barrier. It also prevents any issues with warping, discoloration or splintering.

Unlike playground barriers that are made from wood, this one will not rot. It also won't cause any children to get splinters. While this curb is made from rubber, its color is actually brown. This color allows the curb to nicely blend with a playground's mulch and the grass of the surrounding area. Since the curb is very flexible and has pre-drilled holes, installing it is very easy to do.

Are There Barriers That Can Protect Playgrounds from Traffic?

While modern playground equipment is much safer than equipment from just two or three decades ago, there are still other concerns that need to be addressed to make a playground a truly safe area. One of the most significant is the need to completely protect a playground from vehicles that are driving by on a nearby road. Although most drivers take extra caution when they see a playground, not every playground is completely visible from roads. As a result, it's important to create a physical barrier between a playground and any road it’s near. The playground barriers that can be used to create this protection include barriers made from:

All three types of barriers can provide excellent protection around a playground. The main factors that you need to consider when deciding which option is best for a specific situation is the project's budget and the styles that are needed. Of the available options, steel playground barriers are the least expensive. However, if a playground is located in an area where looks are extremely important, the style of cast iron barriers may be the best fit for the project.

How Much Do Playground Protection Barriers Cost?

Rubber playground curbs only cost $30 per barrier. If the mulch in a playground is stacked high, these barriers are designed so one or more can be stacked on the base barrier. Steel playground barriers start at $39. Concrete barriers are sold in packs of 2 or 10. Packs of 2 concrete barriers are available for $455, while packs of 10 offer the best savings with a total price of $1,086. Cast iron barriers, which are available in a wide range of colors and styles, start at $268.
