U.A. Construction installed Sutcliffe Play’s Saferzone Tiles at the playground in Corporal Allan F. Kivlehan Park, adjacent to New Dorp Beach on the southern shore of Staten Island. New Dorp was one of the first permanent European settlements on Staten Island; Niewe Dorp is Dutch for ‘new town’. It was officially established in 1671 to replace Oude Dorp (Old Town), which was destroyed in the Peach War of 1655.
Sutcliffe Play’s tiles were installed after the previous surfacing was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.
Cinzia Ferella from Sutcliffe Play says: “We’re very glad that the playground has been restored to its former glory, and delighted that our tiles have helped to make this happen. The tiles installed, as well as reducing the risk of injury as children play, have a colourful red and white pattern to brighten up the play area.”
Saferzone is an innovative range of playground safety tiles for use around play equipment. Their aim is to reduce the risk of serious injury in play areas, and the surface is an integral part of the play space. The tiles incorporate a unique pattern which can be arranged in many configurations to add to the play value of a playspace. They are manufactured from natural rubber, which gives them excellent durability.
