Rubber mulch is considered to be the optimal playground safety surface, giving parents peace of mind while allowing kids to do what kids do best – run, jump, climb, and play. Our rubber mulch is IPEMA certified to ASTM F1292 for critical fall height protection, ensuring that children are at minimal risk on the playground. Our product also meets ASTM F1951 for ADA accessibility standards. The plastic timber borders we offer also aid in ADA design by providing an ADA ramp making it easy for users in a wheelchair or with mobility impairments to access the playground.
Rubber mulch is also durable – so durable, in fact – that it is almost indestructible. This is because it is created from 100% recycled rubber, making your decision to surface your playground or landscaping project with rubber mulch an eco-friendly one. Durability also means that rubber mulch is a low-maintenance, cost-effective groundcover solution. Unlike wood mulch, it doesn’t erode or decompose over time, and it can withstand wet and windy weather conditions. Not having to re-mulch year after year can mean significant cost-savings over time. For more information on the huge range of benefits that rubber mulch can offer your commercial, home playground or landscaping project contact one of our knowledgeable staff.
From standard black rubber mulch to a variety of colored options, our products and the colorants used are non-toxic. The rubber mulch also goes through extensive processing to remove unwanted content from the recycled tires and is 99.9% wire-free mulch.
Installation of rubber mulch is pretty straight-forward. The process outlined below is for installing it on a playground, however, the same concepts are used when installing it on a landscape. Here is a quick overview of the installation process:
- Calculate the area surrounding the equipment, referred to as the fall zone. You can find detailed information on fall zones from the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) Public Playground Safety Handbook
- Prepare the ground ahead of time by clearing any rocks, stumps or other debris, and completely remove any old surfacing equipment.
- Install a border to contain the rubber mulch. This helps maximize its efficiency and defines the area as a play zone.
- Install a geo-textile fabric on top of the ground. This will create a barrier between the rubber mulch and earth below.
- Add the rubber mulch and spread evenly to the desired depth.
