Description

Curamet was developed in response to demand from our customers. We had school board members and principals comment that they prefer a wood product for surfacing but were concerned about the nails and foreign objects present when using manufactured wood products, such as wood pallets.

 

Curamet is produced from forest residue that would otherwise contribute to the risk of forest fires, sediment build up in rivers and be left under utilised in the forests. The only ingredient of Curamet is 100% natural virgin pine wood, sourced from sustainable sourced trees.

 

Each playground surfaced with Curamet is storing 500kg of carbon per m2. When Curamet breaks down over time, it can be reutilised, resourcefully, for mulching and promoting plant growth. It’s this circular economy – providing Kiwi kids with environmental awareness and sustainable safety in a playground.

Recommended depths

Typically you need a finishing layer of screened soil of 100mm when working with an uneven surface. 100mm of soil will allow to even out any hollows and give enough depth to create a flat surface

A general rule for compost is to allow for the depth of the current root structure of your plants with an additional 30-50% to mix in with the base. If you’re planting into holes or filling up a vege garden  you will need to accommodate for this prior to filling up

We recommend 100mm (10cm) deep for new bark gardens and planting into bare areas. For existing gardens with some cover, we recommend 75mm-100mm (7.5cm-10cm)

Note: Barked areas for playground impact protection need to meet NZS5828:2015 standards and is calculated on the fall areas and the height of the playground. Please contact us to discuss your barked playground areas

For paths and driveways which are often exposed to car and foot traffic, we recommend 100mm-125mm (10cm-12.5cm) on newly prepared areas due to settling of product.

This excludes preparation, compaction or drainage gravel underneath. For existing areas 75mm thickness is recommended for areas needing a small top-up.
