FibarSystem 200 for Flood-Prone Areas
Specifications & Diagrams CAD Technical Drawings

FibarSystem 200 playground surfacing is designed for use in areas of very high average rainfall or sites with poor soil stability. The patented system is composed of Fibar® Engineered Wood Fibers, two layers of FibarFelt geotextile fabric, with owner-supplied drainage stone and PVC pipe for french drain. No other recreational surfacing provides a better combination of safety, accessibility, 20-year warranty and ease of installation at a comparable cost.

“It has been great for our clay soil. The students can go out for recess after rain storms because there aren’t puddles.”
— Ridgeview Elementary School, Sparta, MI

“The Fibar System is safer, with fewer worries about injuries. It’s clean, no more mud tracked into the building. It is easy to maintain, just an occasional raking.” — Moorhead Elementary School, Indianapolis, IN
