Water play surfacing doesn’t need to be just about safety. Prairie Surfaces will help you design & build your space.
prairie surfaces only uses nsf certified materials for aquatic installations
This means our products have been certified, tested, and audited to ensure public health standards. Based on this, our customers can expect their aquatic surface to meet the following six criteria:
Industry leading traction qualities.
A cushioned surface that breaks the falls for when stumbles do happen.
Holds up to common chemicals found in aquatic spaces like chlorine.
We have yet to find a material that will stain our product after being cleaned.
Strong UV resistance after long exposure times.
Prohibits growth of bacteria in the surfacing, and makes it easier to clean.
You may start to notice NSF stamps on everyday items, like your dishwasher, or common household cleaning products. If you are interested in better understanding what the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) is and how they define and evaluate surfacing products, click the link below.

The flooring decision could not have worked out better for us. Life Floor has been perfect for our facility. We can keep the area open with minimal supervision because of such little risk there is on the splash pad. We’ve been open for 7 months and have had 0 reported incidence so far. The guys at Prairie Surfaces were phenomenal to work with and the installation went great. They even spent time with us to make sure we knew how to maintain and take care of the surfacing. It’s been getting great responses from our members and is a huge enhancement to our facility. We couldn’t be happier.
