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.

Keeping Children Safe With Playground Surfacing

Children love the playground.  They enjoy taking a ride on the swing set, sliding down the big slide, and navigating the jungle gym.  Kids love running around the open area, playing tag or tossing a rubber ball around.  Because our children are very energetic and active we need to make sure that they stay safe on the playground.  With this in mind, playground surfacing for new parks and play areas are the perfect way to protect kids from serious injuries.

Luckily for park owners and developers, playground surfacing comes in a number of options but runner is the preferred medium of surfacing because it is much more malleable than other surfaces.  Rubber surfacing can be poured into a pre-existing space and troweled in order to accommodate any configuration or design.  They also come in pre-made tiles that you can piece together on-site like a giant puzzle but still affords the same kind of protection to those using the playground.  You can even use shredded rubber to surface a park area and make it safe for everyone to use.  Also, they come in an impressive amount of colors and will go well with any playground design.

Children should be able to enjoy themselves without fear of being hurt.  This is a great way to do it.
