This work uses a novel analysis technique to compare the impact attenuation properties of different children’s playground surface materials, namely: rubber of various thicknesses; sands that were wet, dry, fine and coarse; and 300 mm deep bark. Tests were performed at 2 m, 3 m and 4 m drop heights. A total of 17 individual tests are presented. The mechanical tests performed showed significant differences in the impact attenuation of the materials commonly installed within children’s playgrounds.
