Artificial Turf Checklist

How do I know if I can use Artificial Turf in my child care centre?

There is a growing trend to provide outdoor areas inside buildings, and the question arises – is artificial turf a suitable product in this application?

Your artificial turf should:

  • Pass the slip test
  • Pass the 3 part fire resistance rating
  • Be washable
  • Be accessible
  • Be maintainable

The following checklist provides some guidance. If you answer “No” to any of these guidelines you should not consider installing artificial turf indoors.
