It’s no surprise that over 50,000 playgrounds in the U.S. and Canada are surfaced with Fibar Engineered Wood Fiber (EWF) playground chips. This wood fiber playground mulch is designed and tested to be a product with long-term, trouble-free performance.
- Superior raw material. Fibar EWF comes made from 100% virgin wood fiber, not used wood. Which, may contain things you don’t want in your playground (see Certificate of Purity below).
- Superior testing and verification. Fibar EWF comes tested regularly to make sure it complies with all relevant ASTM standards. F1292 for impact absorption, F2075 for material purity, and F1951 for wheelchair access. In addition, the testing is independently verified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA).
- Superior performance. Unlike some other brands, Fibar EWF is carefully controlled as to type and size of wood fibers. Therefore, the fibers knit together to provide a surface springy enough to cushion falls, yet firm enough for wheelchairs. Another advantage, Rainwater passes through Fibar playground mulch. Therefore, kids can play right after it rains. Finally, it simply looks good. The varied colors of natural wood please the eye and blend in with any kind of setting.
- Superior support. Over the past 25 years, Fibar has become the world leader in playground surfacing. We’ve learned the ins and outs of how to produce and deliver Engineered Wood Fiber in a way that means peace of mind for specifiers and buyers alike. We stand ready to assure your complete satisfaction with every delivery.
