As part of the commitment to best practice and sustainability, PolySoft’s innovative surfacing technology and strong properties in versatility, durability, safety and design, prompted its application once again in Prince Alfred Park as a landscaping material in the facelift for the pool complex. Owing to the successful resurfacing of the toddlers’ playground, the council engaged the services of PolySoft and its approved contractor from the previous project, Aussie Synthetic Grass and Rubber Surfaces, owned by Jason Day, to lay down the flooring for the pool’s shaded toddler splash pad and embankment slide.
For the splash pad, a two-toned mix of PolySoft’s Morning Sky and Crystal Blue was applied in a dual ring pattern to enhance the water play theme. PolySoft has earned a worldwide reputation within the leisure industry for exceptional performance in wet areas - it is chlorine and chemical resistant, non-toxic, and hygienic for bare feet. As a surface based on plastic polymers, PolySoft has been shown to reduce heat underfoot, allowing for hours of comfortable play and peace of mind for caregivers on a surface which is soft, yet tough and resilient to cracking, heavy foot traffic, UV fading and slipping.
The City of Sydney has made a long-term investment in PolySoft surfacing for its state-of-the-art water features, recognising PolySoft’s strong safety record, imperviousness, low maintenance and minimised environmental impact, with particles 100% recyclable and 100% Australian- made.
With PolySoft’s contribution to the facelift, the pool has become the perfect island of relaxation from the hustle and bustle of the CBD.
