Varsaw, PolandCorkeen system replaces rubber flooring in a school playground Case Studies
A safe, healthy and closer to nature solution
The municipality of Warsaw chose the Corkeen system for the resurfacing of a small playground located in one of the school and kindergarten complexes in the residential district of Wawer.
The old safety floor, produced in EPDM/SBR, was fairly degraded and the municipality was looking for a safe, sustainable and accessible solution, permitting use of the space by children in wheelchairs or other mobility support equipment.
The Corkeen system was chosen. It is made of cork, a raw material of 100% natural, recyclable and renewable origin, with negative CO<span style="vertical-align: sub; font-size: smaller;">2</span> emissions and free from all types of toxins and chemicals.
During the installation process, Eco Top, the Corkeen brand master for the Polish market, removed the rubber plates, which had become unstable and slippery and applied the new cork flooring.
Over the coming years, the municipality aims to gradually renovate the various municipal playgrounds in the capital. The goal is to create “forest playgrounds” using innovative and ecological materials so that children can play closer to nature.
“The new surface looks natural and beautiful. It is odourless and, most important of all, it provides 100% safety for children while using the playground.”
