Playground Rubber Safety Surfacing is a durable, long-lasting surface that provides excellent impact absorption. It is available in various colors and is easy to maintain. It can be installed on top of a concrete, asphalt or crushed stone base and is one of the most cost-effective options for playgrounds with high fall height equipment.
Unlike other loose-fill surfacing, this surfacing is made from recycled rubber. It has fewer drawbacks than shredded wood and is a great choice for children’s outdoor learning spaces. It can also be used under swings, monkey bars and other equipment to protect children from falls. It satisfies critical fall height and BS EN 1177 requirements, while also providing a soft surface under structures for comfortable landings.
Eco-Friendly and Kid-Friendly: The Sustainability of Rubber Safety Surfacing
It is poured in place and can be customized with custom shapes, colors and patterns. This is the best option if you want a more polished look for your playground and if you are looking to make your playground accessible to children in wheelchairs. It is long-lasting and highly customizable, and it’s the only surfacing material that allows for the addition of color. It can also be shaped to fit the spatial design of your playground.
It includes a sub-base layer that is either standard EPDM rubber granules or TPV (Thermoplastic Vulcanizate) granules. The wear course layer is typically 3.5” deep, which is more than the competition’s 2” wearing course. This gives ELEVATE a system depth that is within compliance of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It can also be mixed with sand to improve its durability and prevent erosion.
