Rubber mulch is a natural looking safety surface which is often found at parks where timber climbing equipment and activity trails are installed.
It is possible to have outdoor safety flooring installed to many different areas like kids’ playgrounds, pub leisure areas, nursing homes and public parks. There are a few play surfacing specifications you can choose from depending on whether you want a brightly coloured surface or a more natural design for the outdoor safe flooring.
Wetpour rubber surfacing is a popular choice for kids’ playgrounds at schools and nurseries as it can be designed in different colours with graphics. These specialist rubber playground graphics are installed within the wetpour surfacing and can create fun activities so kids have the opportunity to learn as they play. The flooring can also be used to surround external gym equipment which might include gymnastics bars, crosstrainers and exercise bikes.

Safety flooring is a type of surface which is normally installed in a play area or park. The surfacing has to meet certain standards to make sure that it is safe for children to use. There is a variety of floor options available, the installation will depend on what type of facility the client is interested in.
Other types of outdoor safety flooring in and surrounding areas, which look more natural appearance could be installed for timber activity trails and other public outdoor areas like pubs. These specifications can include bonded rubber mulch and loose play bark. The rubber mulch and play bark flooring types are both made of rubber chippings which get laid out onto the playgrounds and could also be used to cover muddy areas. However, the play bark comes as loose particles and the bonded rubber mulch is all joined together with a binder so no shredded rubber gets lost from the area. The range of surfacing types can be used in playgrounds or as pathways and other outdoor recreational areas near me.
Another more natural looking recreational safety surfacing type is rubber grass mats which are made up of recycled materials and come in squares which lock together to fit the desired dimensions and area size. These safety tiles can be installed to existing grass areas and the honeycomb design of the mats means that natural grass can continue to grow through. This means that the outdoor safe flooring still keeps the appearance of real grass, but the rubber tiles give an additional safequality for use with play equipment.
Each of these recreational safety surfacing specifications has been rigorously tested to BS EN 1177 safety standards which means they are safe for use in playgrounds where play equipment like climbing frames are being used. to find out about rubber play surfaces, please click here http://www.outdoorflooring.org.uk/rubber-outdoor-flooring/ We can supply and install all these different rubber play surface types to a range of designs and area sizes so you can get the perfect surface for your project.
