Aquatic Surfaces

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:

Slip resistance

Industry leading traction qualities.

Impact Attenuation

A cushioned surface that breaks the falls for when stumbles do happen.

Chemical Resistance

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.

UV Resistance

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.
