PowerBase/Play™ is a component of TISANOS concept, artificial turf system for children’s playgrounds and multi-use areas, and can also be installed in combination with other artificial turf systems for the safest and most consistent surfaces on the market today.
Outdoor play has been scientifically proven as one of the most critical aspects of a child’s development. Adults may consider it simply a luxury children are entitled to enjoy, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Physical playtime creates the wiring in children’s brains that helps them understand how to overcome obstacles, communicate, deal with frustration, exercise their imaginations, and gain an appreciation for physical activity. This can all be compromised if the playground surface doesn’t provide a cushion and protection when they fall.
PowerBase/Play™ brings a new level of precision and consistency to playground surfacing. When combined with a quality artificial turf surface the playground becomes more natural looking, lasts longer than poured in place systems, and most importantly, produces high critical fall height ratings, since the safety of any playground surface is always a priority. And when the turf is replaced, BROCK PowerBase/Play™ is reused for the next turf cycle.
At BROCK we believe that children’s safety is of paramount importance and we recognized the need for a more consistent, engineered product, designed specifically for playground safety. As an industry leader with over 30 years’ experience developing safety-related products, in 2010 the BROCK team introduced PowerBase/Play™, a technologically advanced and environmentally sustainable system for children’s playgrounds. Each PowerBase/Play™, panel is individually manufactured and inspected for quality. Each feature of the panel optimizes function for predictable safety, drainage, surface stability and precise fit.
PowerBase/Play™ is produced from 100% pure high-grade expanded polypropylene. This non-toxic and highly durable material will not decay or degrade. PowerBase/Play™ is resistant to bacteria, fungi, and chemicals, is 100% recyclable, carries the coveted Cradle to Cradle™ Certification and complies with the most stringent environmental standards.
When the turf surface is replaced, PowerBase/Play™ remains and is re-used under the new playground, reducing future costs. PowerBase/Play™ is a multi-functional system serving both as an impact absorbing safety layer, and a valuable component of the sub base construction. As an effective thermal insulation layer, PowerBase/Play™ protects the underlying soil from frost heave that can cause permanent deformation to a playing surface. PowerBase/Play™ also incorporates a complete vertical and lateral drainage system, which can be installed over permeable or impermeable base constructions, offering multiple design solutions. The drainage capability of PowerBase/Play™ results in a reliable, efficient draining play area, while also addressing water storage for storm water management. The PowerBase/Play™ 50 system when installed, can store up to 25mm of rainfall in-between it’s impact absorbing pistons.
