Playground Safety Surfaces
Playground Safety Surfaces are essential in all public play areas and strongly advised for most garden play equipment.
When used in conjunction with fences, these Safety Surfaces also help to clearly identify a dedicated play area.
Many customers want to provide a Safety Surface, however, the range of options can be confusing.
As a result, we have put together a brief summary of the options, in approximate price order.
Rubber crumb mixed with resin on site. Excellent finish, very durable & many designs but needs extensive ground preparation.
Rubber crumb & resin slab cut to 1 sqm tiles in a factory. Ideal for concrete/tarmac areas. Good finish & very durable.
- Soft Bond
Rubber shred mixed with a resin on site. Best on compacted soil. Textured finish & reasonably durable.
- Artificial Grass
Grass ‘carpet’ on top of a ‘shock pad’ underlay. Ideal for smaller spaces. Big range but you get what you pay for.
- Rubber Shred
Shredded pieces of rubber that arrives in bags. Great for shaded areas. Range of colours & durable but depth can vary.
- Rubber Chips
Larger pieces, these are chunks of rubber that arrive in bulk bags. As above.
1.5 sqm soft rubber sheet. Lay on established grass only. Cheap, easy to install & the grass grows through the holes to disguises the mat.
- Play Bark
Many types of bark/shredded timber. Fine for all areas. Cheap, natural & easy to install but needs maintenance & topping up.
