An exclusive residential development in the UAE puts PolySoft at the heart of future-perfect Beach B...
An anti-skid and chemical-resistant surface perfect for wet play areas.
The PolySoft Splash surface has been specifically formulated to combat degradation and other problems found in water playgrounds and theme parks.
While chlorine is commonly used for the maintenance of a healthy water play system, its powerful chemical properties can degrade surfaces such as rubber. Each PolySoft granule is made with polyolefin polymer, a chemical-resistant polymer, which means that Splash is uniquely designed to withstand chemical corrosion. Normal pool chlorine levels are between two to four parts per million, but Splash can resist 10 parts per million.
In wet play areas, children naturally run around in bare feet, but that can become a hazard in summer when surfaces heat up to unbearable temperatures. A study conducted by the University of Western Sydney shows that PolySoft's specially developed surfaces are significantly cooler in the blazing sun than rubber and artificial grass. Splash means kids can play freely without scorching their feet.
PolySoft's superior manufacturing process ensures our surfaces have greater lateral strength than similar products on the market. Splash is made up of closed cell polyolefin polymer beads bound by a unique two-part aliphatic binder that give a firm but supple finish across the space.
Flexible and seamless, Splash is ideal for a wide range of wet areas including pool surrounds, splash pads, zero-depth pool entries and water parks. It is a porous, pour-in-place system.
So much fun here, my kids love the Splash zone. And I love the non-slip floor, I don’t need to worry about them slipping.
In the past, we tried EPDM, rubber tiles, artificial grass and more, but we were not satisfied until we discovered PolySoft. It has hundreds of advantages.
The area has held its colour and integrity under the happy pounding of the thousands of tiny feet over the last 10 years.
I am certainly very happy with PolySoft, as it holds up so well.
I like it a lot, they did a good job putting it in. When the park reopened, people loved it. It is beautiful. It really looks nice. It will have an impact on reducing the number of slips and falls.
We are happy with the product so far. It’s been installed for four to five years and it is much, much better than the previous product which only lasted for three to four months.
If you have a hard material, it won't absorb any impact, it’s better to have a soft-fall floor. We believe PolySoft is very nice for the kids.
The light-blue and dark-blue PolySoft surface has retained its vibrant hues, it is the best surface we’ve come across.
PolySoft had the colours and the track record in materials for what we needed to do. We needed a material that could go on a concrete floor and that we could shape up for water play.
Polysoft is the coolest product I’ve walked on in hot weather.
At Ras Tanura, a housing project for senior and expatriate employees and their families, we installed PolySoft in two splash parks at either end of the eight-kilometre-long development. The architect specified PolySoft from the start, because of its safety features.
Having a product that doesn’t burn kids’ feet when they’re playing is very important.
The managing director, Ophelia Zhu, is very responsive to enquiries, and the company provided valuable training and clear instructions on how to lay the surfaces. We have a great relationship with PolySoft, which helps us carry out our work efficiently and to the highest standard.
Safety was the resort’s first priority and, unsurprisingly, enduring quality was also among Bvlgari’s specifications.
The rounded granules give a premium look to the site.
The hotel’s managers are very happy with the way PolySoft colours maintain their polish, complementing the overall design values of the Bvlgari group, while providing a safe haven for their most valued guests.
The surface is firm and consistent, and at the same time provides good impact absorption.
The colours are very attractive, and the resistance to fading is one of the best we’ve used in playground surfacing.
