Kico – Performing playground surface testing Australia wide

The only professional way to ensure that a playground or softfall safety area provides impact attenuation capabilities and compliance to AS/NZS4422 1996, is to perform an onsite impact test to the material.
At Kico we offer our playground surface testing services across Australia and we perform our tests directly to the playground surface, with minimal interruption and no damage to the existing surface or materials.
Following the test, we issue an easy to read report and include a certificate of compliance to AS/NZS4422 1996 for your organisation.
Kico is NATA accredited to provide playground surface testing of all on-site surfaces and offer you, the client, confidence that we offer only professional expertise and services.

Testing is a simple process and can be performed to a variety of materials such as:

  • Pinebark materials
  • Sand materials
  • Loose fill materials
  • Artificial grass systems
  • Wetpour rubber systems
  • Rubber mats, bricks or tiles
