Rubber Mulch Playground Surfacing
When it comes to playground safety surfacing, there are no shortage of choices! In the market for an effective yet low-maintenance surfacing solution but poured-in-place rubber or artificial grass are a bit too much of a budget stretch? Consider rubber mulch! It’s the preferred choice of many schools, churches, and parks because it is low-maintenance and cost-effective. It can even be used in residential settings!
Protect Against Falls with Rubber Mulch Surfacing
Recreation Unlimited chooses Playsafer™ Rubber Mulch because it is a uniquely processed rubber granule designed specifically to protect children from falls on playgrounds. Additionally, it is made from 100% recycled car tires – vulcanized rubber, offering a lifetime guarantee against breakdown.
Children will fall during play. This much has always been inevitable, as falling down and getting back up are a natural part of the learning and growing process. Getting hurt during a fall, however, is largely avoidable. Rubber mulch safety surfacing has been proven to significantly decrease the incidence of fall-related playground injuries. In fact, it’s been shown to provide the highest safety rating of any playground surface! It is safety-rated for fall heights up to 12 feet.
A Low Maintenance Playground Surfacing Solution
All loose-fill requires some degree of maintenance due to the nature of the material inevitably moving around and out of the play area at times. But because rubber mulch is not subject to decomposition and compression like wood mulch, it does not require nearly as much maintenance.
It dries quickly after rain and will not freeze or compact, making rubber mulch one of the most cost-effective playground surfaces. Rubber mulch is also available in a variety of colors so you can choose the one that best compliments your play area.
Since safety is our top priority here at Recreation Unlimited, we make sure all of our surfacing meets the latest CPSC safety guidelines, ASTM F-1951, and F-1292. Rubber mulch is no exception!
