School Playground Surfacing

There are many different specifications to choose from when you have school playground surfacing installed, we can create designs for rubber safety surfaces along with hard play area flooring depending on the needs of your school. One of the most popular safety surface types that we install is wet pour which is made by mixing EPDM granules with a specialist binder. This mixture is then laid out onto an impact absorbing base course which is made from SBR rubber and acts as a shockpad to provide the safety qualities. The two tier wet pour system can be installed in a range of depths depending on the Critical Fall Height rating needed for any play-area equipment in the area.


To discuss an installation of any of these playground surfaces, get in touch with us today. You can fill in our short contact form and a member of our team will get back to you with more information on the costs and specifications.

Safety Flooring Types for Schools

Other safety flooring types that we install for school playground surfacing include grass mats, bonded rhino mulch and loose bark. The rubber mats come in honeycomb shaped tiles of 1.5m x 1.5m and can be installed to existing natural grass areas to allow the grass to grow through the holes and cover up the appearance of the rubber while still creating a safe surface. Bonded rubber mulch is installed as a continuous surface made up of rubber chippings which are mixed with a binder, this specification may be installed onto most existing outdoor areas. The loose bark is similar to rhino mulch however it is not bonded, so loose chippings are scattered over an existing play area.

We install a number of safety flooring types for schools and we will look into your specific situation to help you choose the best option. If you’d like our advice, please do not hesitate to contact us. Simply complete the enquiry form provided and we will respond right away.

School Play Area Surfaces

Along with the soft rubber safety flooring, we also install school play area surfaces in macadam which provides a durable and versatile outdoor area where kids can play a number of recreational games and sports. Each of the NBS specifications we install for playground surfaces for schools can come in a range of brightly coloured designs with games that the children can enjoy and incorporate into their academic subjects. We provide wetpour graphics as well as thermoplastic markings which create numerous activities such as maths games, letter snakes, maps and grids to allow kids to be active as they learn and play outdoors. The specialist marking designs we apply can all be made in conjunction with the National Curriculum for Key Stages One, Two, Three and Four depending on what your school needs.

Nursery Play Flooring

Rubber Playground Surfacing

Our installers can offer rubber playground surfacing for schools in a number of different designs and specifications. If you’re looking for a more natural appearance, we would recommend thinking about having rhino mulch or artificial grass installed. However, if you’re looking for a bright, vibrant surface that will encourage children to get involved in games and activities, we would suggest EPDM wetpour safety surfacing. Our experts can offer advice with regards to what surface would be best for your individual school play-area, looking into your spending budget and taking this into consideration too.

If your school or nursery has playground equipment within the area and you require safety surfacing to keep the children safe, we would recommend one of our rubber play surfaces. We can alter the depth of our safety surfaces to meet your individual requirements. If you have higher play-area equipment, you will need a thicker system installed due to the Critical Fall Height required.
