European Playgrounds to Use Israeli “Pashut Yarok” Foam Surfaces to Protect Kids

1

playgroundAn Israeli company has been authorized to export plastic foam safety surfaces for children’s playgrounds to countries in the European Union, TPS reports.

Hundreds of thousands of surplus foam packagings, originally used to protect new products from damage during their delivery, will thus be transformed into safety surfaces for children’s playgrounds in Europe.

The surfaces, called ‘Shockpads,’ are produced by the Israeli company Pashut Yarok (“Simply Green” in Hebrew), and installed under synthetic grass.

This way, if a child falls from a playground apparatus, the spongy layer will absorb the shock, potentially saving the child’s life.
