Why Install New Playground Surfacing?

You may remember as a child playing in the school or park playground. Chances are you had sand or wood chips protecting your falls from the swings, slides, and climbing bars. While these materials do work, they can leave clothes stained, dirtied, and sometimes even torn. New playgrounds tend to feature rubber mats.

Playground surfacing used now can be seamless poured-in recycled or bonded rubber, rubber tile, placed mats, or shredded rubber. Not only is this material softer on the knees and has better shock absorbing for falls, it won't ruin clothes. It's a great option for schools and party places because it can be installed indoors and outdoors.

They are also very bright and colorful and they will last for a long time if they're taken care of properly. Unlike other substances that get messy with rain and other inclement weather, it will survive the elements with grace. It also won't need to be replaced as often as playground surfacing like wood chips, mulch, and sand. And the best thing is that it can be sprayed down and cleaned much easier making them more sanitary overall.

If you intend to update your local playground, consider changing the old playground surfaces to the newer stuff for convenience.
