When it comes to children, it is imperative to keep their well-being assured, especially when they are at play. According to the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention, each year more than 200,000 children ages 14 and younger are treated in emergency rooms for injuries involving playgrounds. With such a risk of injury always present, it is clear that, above all else, a playground area needs to be safe. Rubber-Cal appreciates this need for safety and offers an excellent line of safety surfacing for playgrounds. It is crucial to have rubber playground mats in place because of their protective shock absorbing qualities and for the comfort they provide to those playing on them. Since our play floor tiles are made of rubber, you will have an easy to install safety solution at a very affordable price!
Since playgrounds are often located outdoors, it is important to have playground surfaces that can endure in outdoor conditions. Our playground matting is able to do this because it is made using eco-friendly recycled rubber material. Recycled rubber is advantageous because it is made from recycled tires which are designed to last outdoors for years! Our rubber playground mats exhibit a superior degree of resistance to UV rays, ozone, and water. These are qualities which are passed down from the recycled tire raw materials. This durable longevity is available for your playground surfaces at an affordable rate, keeping both your expenses and your environmental impact at a minimum. You will be surprised at just how much life you can get from well-constructed rubber playground matting!
The most important aspect of having the proper safety surfacing for playgrounds is their shock absorbing characteristics. It is the world’s worst kept secret that kids can play rough and often take tumbles in the process, so shock absorption is the primary feature you want to have in playground surfaces. Rubber is a superior and safer alternative to hard asphalt, so a fall onto a shock absorbent surface is less likely to cause a serious injury than a fall onto a hard surface. Some of our rubber playground mats are soft enough to provide a cushioned surface on which to fall. To provide these high-end shock absorbing qualities, most play floor tiles have a thicker gauge than many other forms of rubber flooring. Some rubber playground mats have special waffle designs on their underside which boost their ability to flex under pressure. Certain safety surfacing for playgrounds have also been tested thoroughly and will offer approved fall heights as a result of these qualities. This is specific to certain products and should be checked before purchase.
Rubber playground surfaces are far superior to hard surface alternatives not only due to their safety qualities, but also the enhanced comfort they provide. The rubber material used in our playground matting makes this comfort possible. Children may be full of energy, but even they can feel fatigued after a while. Our playground surfaces are designed to be comfortable for feet. Some play floor tiles are thick and soft enough to provide a degree of bounce, meaning that the likelihood of pressure affecting the feet while they are standing on these elastic surfaces is greatly reduced. Though kids are generally limber and full of energy (as any parent will inform you), they can still suffer from pains in the course of clambering over and playing on uncomfortable materials or structures. That is why providing the most comfortable playground surfaces material is critical to us. Overall, the anti-fatigue capabilities of our rubber playground mats are hard to beat.
Not only do rubber playground mats provide great underfoot comfort, but they also give you playground surfaces with a high level of grip. This is another important factor in improving the safety of your play area. Children are always tearing around at top speed with little regard for their safety. Playground surfaces made of rubber give you the best traction because of the natural friction of rubber. This means that rubber playground surfaces will also help youngsters avoid trip and slip injuries, as well as falls.
Best of all, safety surfacing for playgrounds is easy to install. Most of our playground matting comes in the form of tile mats. Their simple installation has made them very popular. Sometimes people need help with installing rolls of flooring and often end up spending money on third party help. Rubber play floor tiles eliminate that problem because they make such a great DIY project. Playground surfacing tiles generally come with pins that connect the tiles to one another. You can also install rubber playground surfaces on top of most other surfaces, such as grass or dirt, to create a new and level flooring area made up of play floor tiles. This type of modular flooring is a great alternative to rolled flooring because it allows for a greater degree of design mobility.
Speaking of design, our playground surfaces can also be customized to suit aesthetic needs. We offer playground matting tiles that come in different colors like red, blue, and green. It is possible to mix and match colors as you see fit. These color options only serve to enhance their design mobility. Safety surfacing for playgrounds should look good while keeping the children safe, and our line of mats will make your playground surfaces stand out. We know that a big part of a playground’s appeal to children comes from its aesthetic and design, so we make an admirable endeavor to provide adequately sized and shaped playground surfaces that are likewise attractive.
Grass, concrete, and asphalt are not the proper playground surfaces to have. Rubber is the ideal material to use as play area flooring. Rubber playground mats provide playground surfaces with enhanced shock absorbent protection and superior levels of anti-fatigue comfort. These benefits are available in an eco-friendly and easy to install form that will save you both time and money! Best of all, those rough and tumble kids can keep on playing as they like because they will be safer.
