Specifications & Diagrams CAD Technical Drawings

FibarSystem 100 playground surfacing is designed for use in desert-like climates, requiring little to no drainage. The patented system is composed of Fibar® Engineered Wood Fibers and our exclusive FibarFelt geotextile fabric. No other recreational surfacing provides a better combination of safety, accessibility, 15-year warranty and ease of installation at a comparable cost. To preserve your warranty, FibarMat wear mats must be installed under all swings, tire swings, slide exits, and sliding poles. When properly installed, Fibar safety surfacing meets the final guidelines of the access board in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
