Need an Alternative to Playground Rubber Mulch? Save Money with EWF

EWF Engineered Wood Fiber

Even though Everlast Kids Playground Rubber Mulch offers the best value in the rubber mulch industry, sometimes budgets prohibit it’s use.  Luckily there is another high quality playground safety surface alternative.  EWF.

What is EWF?  Engineered Wood Fiber is wood playground mulch made from select sources.  Typical wood mulch is produced under fairly loose quality control standards so you can think of engineered wood fiber as a high class high quality wood playground mulch.  The ASTM, used to be the  American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), develops standards for products and there is a standard by which all Engineered Wood Fiber must adhere to insuring that you receive the high quality wood playground material you purchase.

One issue all playgrounds with loose fill products have is rutting where the kids drag their feet.  Whether you use wood mulch or rubber mulch you can save time and maintain a safer playground by removing the trip hazards with rubber swing mats and rubber borders.

A great new patent pending product is Tie Guard!
