Anthony launched PlaySmart with the intention of offering a consistent, high-quality standard for grass matting – the most popular playground safety surface at the time. He wanted to offer clients the guarantee that “any installation will be of the same high standard, every time, whether it is in Scotland or Devon”. The aim was to give customers total confidence in the quality of the mats and the workmanship of his installers, with the introduction of a ten-year product and five-year installation guarantee.
PlaySmart have always sought to respond quickly to customer demand by developing innovative products that fill the gaps in the market. This started with the development and introduction of FireSmart, a fire retardant alternative to standard grass matting. This has continued throughout the company’s history right through to the present day where we constantly look for new high-quality products and research improvements which can be incorporated into the range.
