WoodcarpetWhat is WOODCARPET®? WOODCARPET® is a 100% natural product and contains no chemicals or artificial ingredients. No waste wood or pallets are used as they could contain spilled chemicals, paint, metal, or wood preservatives. We utilize fresh wood that cannot be made into lumber.

Engineered wood fiber is an economical playground surfacing used on nearly 3/4 of all playgrounds in the U.S. because of its high impact absorbing qualities, yet firm, slip resistant surface that, if properly installed, allows for wheelchairs and strollers to traverse across it. Less expensive products such as sand and pea gravel just aren't accessible.

Woodcarpet® by Zeager is certified by IPEMA per F1292 and F2075 standard test methods. In fact, Zeager has their own test equipment to perform testing on their surface in-the-field. That means we can test our products in all sorts of conditions (hot or cold) to make sure they perform properly.It's not required, but we want to make sure we consistently provide a top notch product at a competitive price.Engineered wood fiber is the most economic option that meets all the qualities and standards you need in a playground surfacing.

NOTE: Most delivery trucks carry a maximum of 90 cubic yards . (One truckload contains approximately 90 cubic yards). Therefore our 'MINIMUM ORDER' = (45) CUBIC YARDS. (one/half of one truckload).

Please note that freight (mileage) charges for the delivery one-half of a truckload will be the same freight (mileage) as for a full truckload.

Many customers actually use any (extra) playground Woodcarpet chips which they order for ‘landscaping’ on their site.

A drainage system provides a place for the water to drain, prevents subsoil from mixing with the WOODCARPET®, creates a weed barrier, and creates air space allowing the WOODCARPET® to breathe.  DURALINER®, a highly engineered drainage fabric, is available for all of our wood chip quotes (upon request).

Duraliner Option (For  optional  use  under   wood  chips)

Drainage is a very important part of every playground. A good drainage system will increase the life of the surface and will help keep it safe and accessible. Our DURALINER® drain system consists of the following materials:

  • 5ft. x 250 ft. rolls of fabric.
  • Passes fall safety test after 15 years.
  • Tested according to ASTM methods.
  • Helps prevent weed growth
  • 12” of WOODCARPET® rated to 12’ / 8” rated to 8’.

  1. A layer of DURALINER® is installed on top of the subsoil.
  2. Perforated drain pipe is then installed, particularly in the lowest part of the play area, to carry water away from the playground.
  3. 3" - 5" (7cm - 13cm) of gravel is spread over the entire area.
  4. A second layer of DURALINER® is installed on top of the gravel.
  5. WOODCARPET® surfacing is installed on top of the DURALINER®.
