With landscape architecture expertise and decades of accumulated experience our team can deliver initial guidance in funding, consents and safety standards. From there we then deliver imaginative concepts, adaptable designs and distinctive, enduring results.


Numat provides ongoing maintenance work for surfacing and shade that is both efficient and cost-effective. No play environments are ever quite the same, with weather, usage, construction and other key factors playing a key part in maintenance requirements. We take pride in working closely with our customers to ensure any programme specifically addresses their needs.

Project Management

We can work directly with you or alongside your project team, providing a number of services across every stage of the playground development. Our efforts on big and small play environments throughout New Zealand have been successful due to consistency of vision, effectiveness of communication and diligence in coordination. The management systems we have in place ensure peace of mind from concept to completion.


We offer complete playground landscape construction from a garden shed to a sandpit, matting underfoot to shade overhead, planting to edging to anything and everything. Our installation teams are held to the highest standards and, with close to 50 workers based out of Kaiatia, Whangarei, Auckland, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Christchurch, Oamaru, Dunedin and Queenstown, we effectively cover the country.

Safety Certified

We have produced fall zone safety surfacing for more than 15 years. In this time our systems have consistently delivered for community, school and pre-school playgrounds. These systems have fully certified Critical Fall Height (CFH) factors of up to three metres.  Numat is tested and certified in accordance with NZS5828:2004 Playground Equipment and Surfacing Standards in New Zealand. Our shock absorption performance is evaluated by the HIC (Head Injury Criterion) test, a careful analysis that measures fall impact through multi-axial deceleration. A second test measures kinetic energy at impact, in which a standardised head, equipped with highly sensitive acceleration sensors, undergoes free fall.
