Fibar (Engineered Wood Fiber)

Fibar® Engineered Wood Fiber (EWF) is not “mulch” or “wood chips.” It is made only from Virgin Wood, never used wood. Fibar is not treated with any chemicals and remains an all natural solution. Fibar EWF meets all the requirements of ASTM F1292 for safety, F2075 for purity, and F1951 for wheelchair access. All testing certified by IPEMA. (Note: Because of safety and accessibility concerns, we do not sell rubber mulch.)

Safety surfacing under your playground or other play structure is important to keep children safe. Fibar has become the industry standard for playground surfacing. The safety standards for Fibar are much more stringent than typical outdoor mulch, which ensures you are receiving the optimal surfacing for your outdoor recreation area.In fact, the United States Department of Interior (DOI) has determined that wood chips are not considered an accessible playground surface .Fibar Systems have been extensively tested and meet the specifications of the ASTMF 1951 Standard for Accessibility according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
