Playground Safety Surfacing
Our Playground Rubber Mulch meets the ASTM 1292 standards for playground rubber mulch, providing a safe landing for your children. We recommend a minimum depth of 3" to cover a 5' fall height and 6" for a 12' fall height. The fall height is the tallest point on the playset that a child could fall off of. To ensure your child's safety we recommend a 6' safe zone (area covered in playground rubber mulch) around the entire playground, to catch any unsuspected falls. Another way to help protect your child and prevent wear under the slides, is with our Fanny Pads. These shock absorbing rubber pads are perfect for placing on high traffic areas where rubber mulch alone may become displaced. To secure your rubber mulch use our Interlocking Molded Plastic Borders or Flexible Rubber Borders!
