SafetyFirst Playground Maintenance is your playground partner that delivers quality products that support long-term and cost-effective solutions. Our products reduce the need for annual replacement or short-term restoration, instead, our leading playground safety products naturally protect your playground value and quality year after year.

Specifically, SafetyFirst’s Nature’sPlus engineered wood fiber surfacing is naturally resistant to water and mold to expand the lifespan and appearance of the playground, as compared to playground rubber mulch. In addition, SafetyFirst’s specially designed playground safety mats last longer than traditional playground mats and have a ten-year warranty.

What People Are Saying About Us

I have been using SafetyFirst surfacing material in my district’s playgrounds for several years now. We have been very impressed with the quality and impact attenuation of this product. I would highly recommend it for any organization looking for a quality, long lasting product for their playground surfacing needs.

Facilities and Safety Coordinator
Eden Prairie Schools, ISD 272

In my nearly 30 years of facility management, SafetyFirst is the finest playground service company I have worked with, Bob Clarin, president of SafetyFirst was always available and was on site daily. From the simplest repair, a missing bolt to a complete rebuild including drainage and play structure relocation, SafetyFirst completed the work well and on time.

Supervisor of Buildings & Grounds
Roseville Schools, ISD 623

I would like to express my satisfaction with the wood chips and mats that we have purchased from SafetyFirst. The chips bind together well to make a nice playground surface with the fall protection we need. Bob has always had the materials delivered on a timely basis and is very pleasant to work with. I am sure we will be doing more business Bob and SafetyFirst in the future.
