Chip Chip donate play grade wood chip to special needs school

We have recently donated play grade wood chip to Hazel Oak School in Solihull.

Every play area is different. If you have large climbing frames, Critical fall height must be considered when making your choice. If not, the choice will come down to aesthetics, cost and utility. RoSPA recommend 300mm depth minimum for public play areas, and 150mm for domestic. However these figures should also balanced against the products performance when high standing play equipment is in use.

We are competitively priced on both large loose loads of up to 100m3 articulated lorry loads as well as 1m3 bagged loads so a lot of it comes down to whether you need a bulk load of your play chip or just a few cubic metres.

Why Chip Chip Playchip?

Used by families, councils and commercial play areas across England and Wales, Chip Chips Playchip, produced using only virgin pine, provides an attractive, easy-to-maintain and above all safe play area that guarantees a soft landing for your little ones.

As decorative as it is safe, our pine Playchip lasts far longer than other barks and mulches, thanks to its clean, easy-to-drain and frost resistant properties. In fact, with annual raking, this chip will retain its colour and integrity for years to come!

We currently supply bulk loads of pine play chip to councils throughout the UK. To see why, take a look at the benefits of this superb play surface.
