When building a commercial play area, investing in rubber surfacing for playgrounds is crucial for ensuring safety. The Rubber Flooring Experts provide various rubber playground flooring products that protect children from injuries and provide fantastic floor protection in daycares, public parks, and schools, which may be some of the most rough-and-tumble environments around for children. Overall, rubber playground surfacing is a smart, affordable, and easy-to-install way of making sure that roughhousing kids in these places don’t harm themselves while playing around.
Our rubber playground flooring products are flexible, elastic, and comfortable, whether they are made with natural rubber sap harvested from rubber trees or recycled all-weather rubber tires. Whether they are playing inside or outside, kids are always at risk of accidents. They are bound to fall off of slides or jungle gyms and hit the ground while they are playing around. Many play areas have hard flooring surfaces like wood, concrete, or asphalt. Falling on these types of surfaces is not only painful, but can lead to serious injuries, especially for children with growing bodies. On the other hand, playground surfacing made of rubber can absorb the impact of falling and decrease the overall shock to the person's body, minimizing the chance of injury and keeping them safe. It is better for children to fall on a soft, elastic material like rubber instead of a hard surface like concrete or asphalt. By installing rubber mats in indoor and outdoor play areas, you can create a cushioned surface that protects children from injuries when they fall, thus providing them with a safe and secure play environment.

In addition to protecting children from injuries, soft rubber playground flooring also acts as a resilient and affordable floor protection solution, even in extremely abrasive environments. Playground equipment gradually wears down with frequent use. Swings, slides, or jungle gyms vibrate as kids play on them each day, causing them to strain against the underlying playground surface. Over time, this regular strain can cause damage to both the equipment and the floor surface, eventually requiring daycares and schools to spend considerable amounts of money on repairing playgrounds. But just as playground surfacing made of rubber can absorb shocks from falls, it also absorbs vibrations from playground equipment in use. By installing soft rubber mats underneath playground equipment, you can protect indoor or outdoor play areas from damage, allowing them to last longer before requiring repairs. Playground surfacing made of rubber forms a tough, shock-absorbent layer over concrete and asphalt, lessening wear on equipment. In the long run, rubber playground flooring can reduce the costs of maintenance for playgrounds.
Rubber playground flooring is ideal for placement in the outdoors. This is due to the fact that the rubber material used to make our playground surfacing products is very resistant to UV rays, ozone, water, and many other elements. Resistance to moisture allows our rubber flooring products to survive rain, snow, and other kinds of precipitation throughout the year. Excess moisture has a habit of developing microbial byproducts like mold and mildew. These are very hazardous byproducts that can have adverse effects on the human body, especially for young children. However, due to its water-resistant nature, rubber does not allow for these hazards to develop on its surface, making it ideal for use in playground surfacing. Other elemental factors to watch out for are UV rays and ozone. These have a tendency to degrade certain materials after prolonged and steady exposure. Fortunately, the kind of natural and recycled rubbers used in our flooring products resist damage from such hazards. The resilience of our rubber surfacing for playgrounds stems from the tire rubber material used to make recycled rubber. Tires are designed to survive in many different kinds of abrasive road types and environments for long periods of time, and the recycled rubber found in our playground surfacing inherits this versatile, long-lasting durability. As a result, feel free to install rubber playground flooring for children's play areas in any outdoor setting. With rubber surfacing, playgrounds and play areas of any size last longer and allow kids to have fun all year round, rain or shine!
Our rubber playground surfacing is fast, easy, and efficient to install. For instance, we offer rubber flooring solutions in the form of interlocking tiles. These interlocking rubber tiles are designed to be very easy to transport and install in play areas without the need for a professional. In fact, installation of tiled playground surfacing can make for an excellent DIY project for you and the kids who will be frequenting this play area! Interlocking tile flooring usually comes with plastic pins that are meant to lock each tile into another. These connector pins fit into holes on the sides of each tile. Our rubber playground flooring tiles are heavy enough that they do not require adhesive in order to stay in place once installed. At the same time, these tiles are just light enough to serve as a mobile flooring solution. They can be rearranged, removed, and reinstalled in different areas as needed.
Make your daycare or playground area the safest it can possibly be for the children using it.
