Safety Flooring

With any outdoor play area it’s important to ensure that the children using the surface are kept as safe as possible and have an enjoyable environment where they can take part in a range of different activities. We specialise in safety flooring services to install outdoor surfacing at schools, nurseries, parks and public recreational areas where kids are running, playing and using equipment like climbing units and activity trails. Wetpour rubber is commonly chosen for these areas as it provides safety qualities to meet BS EN 1177 standards and can also be designed in a range of colours with graphics such as geometric shapes, cartoons, animals and educational markings. The NBS specification of wetpour gets its safety characteristics from its SBR shockpad base layer which absorbs impact from trips and falls to protect the children and prevent injuries.

We also offer a premium system of shredded rubber mulch which we call Rhino-Mulch. In our opinion Rhino-Mulch is superior in its construction to many ‘cheaper versions’. Trust the most experienced and knowledgeable team in the industry to supply & fit your impact absorbing resin bound rubber mulch safety surface. The resin bound rubber mulch is ideal for areas requiring a more natural look whilst providing a safety surface or to create a different texture. The rubber mulch is made from recycled rubber which is shredded and then coloured using our special process. The bonded shred is self-supporting and does not require a foundation layer and is therefore ideal for the less accessible locations or around tree bases.

What are Outdoor Safety Surfaces?

We offer a variety of outdoor safety surfacing options to provide a safe area for young children to play in. There are a number of different options we offer including wetpour, rubber mulch, artificial grass with a shockpad underneath and more. Our specialists aim to offer you the best value for money and will make certain that the surfaces are safe for kids to play on when carrying out the installation. 

Many of our surfaces can be installed in different depths to meet specific Critical Fall Heights. It is important to consider CFH if you have play equipment on the area to ensure children will not be injured if they fall off the apparatus. Our team can work out the depth needed for you to ensure safety of your facility.

Safety Surface Design

When installing safe surfaces, we can incorporate numerous designs to enhance the area and make a more enjoyable space for young people to enjoy. Educational games can be added to surfaces like wetpour for young kids to make use of. We have a variety of safety flooring designs available which may be installed on the area. These designs can be installed in various colours to meet individual requirements. 

We would highly recommend having safe flooring installed to make certain children using the area will not be injured. Since we install a range of different safety surfaces, you can create designs with multiple surface types to create a unique area for people to enjoy.

Playground Surface Maintenance

As well as designing and installing these rubber surfacing specifications, we also offer safety flooring services to test, clean and maintain outdoor play areas and ensure that any issues are dealt with as quickly as possible. These include brushing to remove debris from the area, jet washing the flooring, and carrying out repairs for localised damage or shrinkage of the rubber around the perimeter. We offer many services to help you look after your recreational surfacing and we also supply equipment such as repair kits and de-icer to enable you to carry out minor repairs and maintenance yourself. If you are looking to install a new safety surface, or you need advice on maintenance of an existing one please get in touch with us through our enquiry form so we can discuss costs and offer you a quote.

If you do not carry out the appropriate maintenance on your area, you may be faced with a number of costly repairs. Although we undertake reparation work, it is recommended to try to avoid this. By completing regular inspections and cleaning services you can increase the life span of the playground and minimise expenses.

Outdoor Safety Flooring Specialists

It’s important to choose outdoor safety flooring specialists when having a play area installed or if you need repairs to your existing one. We have many years of experience in the recreational surfacing industry and have a wealth of knowledge on design and creating a specification which meets your budget. As well as the wetpour surface type, we may also provide soft flooring services for a number of other flooring options including rubber tiles for grass areas. These are honeycomb shaped rubber mats, made from recycled rubber.

Grass mats are normally 22mm thick and designed to be laid over existing grass, allowing it to grow through to conceal the rubber mat and create a better appearance. The specially designed tiles can be used as an impact absorbing safety surface and we would always recommend the additional installation of a Ground Stabilising Mesh (GSM) below the rubber mat itself to improve stability. Each of the natural looking surface types we specialise in such as rubber mulch and grass mats may be installed onto existing outdoor areas. This creates a more natural appearance while still adding extra safety qualities for use with equipment and activity trails.

Installing Safe Play Facilities

The video below shows one of our projects which involved installing a wetpour play area for a school. The designs for this safety surface included a number of colourful graphics with games for the children to enjoy. This rubber flooring was also used to provide impact absorption around equipment such as slides which were also present on the playground.
