Complete Rooftop Playground Install

This was a complete rooftop playground flooring solution in New York City. We installed “surface mount” equipment (as seen in the photos below). This equipment is the same as you would see on any typical playground, just installed a different way due to the fact that it is installed on a rooftop. We coordinated with a lifting solutions company to get all materials on the rooftop. Playground equipment, playground rubber tiles… everything. This company insures that all necessary permits and flag people are in place, as required by the location. Each of the five boroughs in New York has its own requirements for this (of course), but it is all factored into the project and not the responsibility of the building owner.

Rooftop Rubber Tile Playground Installation

Rubber playground mats & safety tiles make it possible to install playgrounds virtually anywhere—even a rubber tile playground on a rooftop in one of the largest cities in the world! adventureTURF playground surfacing developed a strategic partnership with rubber tile manufacturers and lifting companies throughout the five boroughs of New York City to make rooftop playgrounds possible. This project was installed on the rooftop of a building in Brooklyn, NYC, where space for a playground is not always available. Together with our strategic partners, we are able to bring the dream of a brand new and safe rooftop play area to a facility and community that lacked the space to accommodate a typical playground surface area.

Replace Woodchips with ADA Compliant Playground Floor

Many communities and schools in the United States are replacing existing woodchip playground surfaces with new ADA compliant playground floor. Institute of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Washington, DC, is no exception. Woodchips are simply not a safe playground surface for children to play on—not to mention the fact that it is nearly impossible for children with disabilities to navigate the play area. (We wrote about playground woodchips here.) Read More +
