Safety first:

We all want to protect our kids and create a safe play environment. Terrasofta is independently tested and meets the latest stringent standards laid down in BS EN 1177: 2008 (impact absorption of play surfaces)

Only Terrasofta's natural impact absorbing protection helps protect kids from falls from play equipment up to 6.4 metres. The tables below show you how to install Terrasofta to meet the BS EN standards.

Test Standard:

BS EN 1177:2008


Externally testing was
conducted on a mature lawn sub-base.

Internal testing was
conducted in controlled laboratory environment on concrete sub-base


Tested on concrete sub-base


50mm deep loose fill   - CFH = 0.6m

100mm deep loose fill - CFH = 1.8m

150mm deep loose fill - CFH = 6.4m

Tested on mature lawn sub-base


50mm deep loose fill   - CFH = 1.6m

100mm deep loose fill - CFH = 2.5m

This is the latest approved safety standard which measures the impact absorption of play surfaces from a range of fall heights from 0.6 to 6.4 metres.

Terrasofta is the only play surface to be coated with Hygienilac, which kills harmful bugs and bacteria. (Exclude Woodland Mix and Original Black)

Hygienilac meets BS EN71 - 3:1995 including A1:2000 and Hygienilac coated products have a kill rate of 99.9% of all known bacteria including Salmonella, Listeria, E coli and MRSA. Hygienilac antimicrobial coating is safe, permanent and will not stain.

How does Hygienilac Work?
Hygienilac prevents the bacteria's access to nutrients so they starve and die. It has a kill rate of 99.9 per cent over a 24 hr period

What is BS EN71 Part 3? (Safety of toys Part 3 Migration of certain elements)

This basically means poisons. Limits are set for chemicals such as lead, cadmium and mercury which may be dangerous if swallowed or chewed by a child.
