Engineered Wood Fiber (EWF) is the original and most popular choice for playground surfacing, mainly because of it's lower cost than other playground safety surfaces. EWF gives your playground an attractive, natural look. Once installed and settled, Engineered Wood Fiber forms a knitted layer that provides a surface that is springy enough to cushion falls, but firm enough for wheelchairs or other mobility devices. Another major advantage of EWF: Rain water passes right through so kids can play right after it rains. EWF from MulchDirect.com complies with ASTM standards: F1292 for impact absorbtion, F2075 for material purity, and F1951 for wheelchair access. The testing is also independently verified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA).
