Take a look at our Reviews to read genuine feedback from many happy customers that have rated our product and service five stars.

Hallstone Wood Chippings are:

  • Clean and untreated wood chippings with an attractive, light golden brown colour and pleasant natural odour
  • FSC® certified – responsibly sourced
  • Certified to British Standards EN 1177:2018 Impact Attenuating Playground Surfacing – Determination of Critical Fall Height & BS 7188-1998 Ease of Ignition Test
  • Produced from a variety of hardwood species – wood content 95%+ (5-30mm) with fines content (below 8mm) of less than 5%
  • A highly durable product free of pests and weed seeds

They will gradually soften even more over time once exposed to the elements, but are long-lasting and economical as they don’t break down as quickly as softwood.

Wood chips provide free draining, therefore a cleaner play surface or animal enclosure flooring all year round. They are durable and free of pests, weeds and other foreign matter. Hardwood Chippings have also passed the BS 7188-1998 Ease of Ignition Test. There is a recommended coverage depth of no less than 150 – 300mm if used as a play surface; for further information visit our Play Surface Safety Information page.

An attractive alternative to play bark, decorative bark mulches and aggregates to brighten areas in the garden; wood chips are also often used on areas to reduce traffic wear and create a distinctive area to be used as a pathway.

Our play chips are from a sustainable source and are made from white wood with no additives, meaning there is no added coating which could stain clothes or affect animal wellbeing. Due to the nature of the product and screening process, occasionally oversize pieces of wood may occur, these can easily be removed at the time of installation.
