ShockAb is a 100% engineered wood fiber product that acts as an excellent replacement for sand in many play areas. ShockAb becomes a resilient surface underneath all types of playground equipment, such as swings, slides, jungle gyms, parallel bars and other toys that adventure-some active children use. If a child slips and falls off the equipment, the padded ShockAb ground covering helps to cushion the impact and reduce the potential for serious injury.
When properly installed to a depth of 12 inches, ShockAb greatly exceeds all of the standards established by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission and the State of California for playground surfaces.
ShockAb is an all-natural wood product that contains no chemicals, pesticides, preservatives or other foreign substances.
ShockAb also ensures compliance of the Americans with Disabilities Act for playground surfaces. After ShockAb is compacted, wheelchairs can be rolled easily across the surface, providing access to the playground equipment.
Many tests must be performed and passed before any playground fiber is approved for use in public facilities. SHOCKABTM exceeds, by a substantial margin, all the standards for playground surfaces established by the Consumer Products Safety Commission and the State of California when properly installed to a depth of 12 inches
