Playground Safety Surfaces

School may be out for millions of children now that the schools are breaking up, but it certainly won’t be one long holiday for a north west based playground safety surface company.

Burnley based RTC don’t tend to enjoy the long six week summer break the way that children do, as this is one of their busiest times of the year. The school holidays do mean that the playgrounds won’t be echoing to the sound of laughter and playground games but it also means that quite a few will be welcoming a whole new look once the youngsters return from their summer break, and that is thanks to the team at RTC playing a new exciting playground safety surface for them. It’s hot work but rewarding, as an RTC team member explains.

‘I remember when I was at school, we had nothing like the playground facilities that kids have today. Being able to be part of the team that gives these schools these awesome looking new playground surfaces is really something to be proud of. The only thing that I would like to see is the looks on the kids’ faces when they return to school in September to see their all new playground. I bet they are a picture!’

Established in 1993, RTC are the leading UK specialists in wetpour surfacing for playgrounds and play areas. In the 20 years that the company has been going, they have installed these surfaces in a staggering 10,000 playgrounds, so there is a very good chance that many of the UK’s primary school children have had a good play and run around on an RTC playground. RTC managing director Helen Jones is justifiably proud of the company’s achievements.

‘To have installed our wetpour surfaces in so many different playgrounds is something we are really pleased about, but we don’t rest on our laurels. The few weeks coming will see all 12 of our teams flat out installing new surfaces in schools all over the UK and elsewhere in Europe. Not bad for a local business in Burnley we don’t think!’

RTC surfaces have also been installed in many other locations including in play areas, garden paths and even at football grounds. If you would like to learn more about their playground safety surface facilities, why not pay a visit to the very helpful RTC company website at
