Melcourt’s loose impact surfaces, are made from natural materials. During the manufacturing and screening process a very small proportion of larger pieces of wood, referred to as ‘wood shards’, may fall through the screens and be included in the finished product.
If these wood shards are considered to be a hazard, they can be physically removed, by hand, once the surface has been installed
