Head Injury Criterion Ratings for SafetyFoam Pro

SafetyFoam Pro is the only engineered playground underlayment with a 700 Head Injury Criterion (HIC) rating, far exceeding the industry standard of 1,000.

For decades, the playground industry has considered a surface to be safe if it attained a HIC number of 1,000 when tested at the specified critical fall height. At ForeverLawn®, we believe in going above and beyond the norm, and creating new standards for a better world. That’s why we have manufactured our SafetyFoam Pro to perform at a higher level and meet more rigorous standards than the current norm, resulting in our playgrounds attaining a HIC number of 700. If safety is your number one concern, why would you choose any other surface?

More Innovations that Help Protect Children

At ForeverLawn, we take safety very seriously. That is why, when we developed the first safety system under our grass back in 2004, it achieved a 15-foot fall safe rating even though 90% of playgrounds only required fall safe ratings up to 8 feet. That same affordable, tried and true system is used today, because we know you share our philosophy to go above and beyond the requirements when it comes to the safety of the children.
