Poured-in-Place rubber flooring is a playground surface option that comes in many colorful designs, is easy to clean, and durable year-round. Poured-in-place rubber flooring is:

  • A two- layer construction starting with a cushion layer made of clean, recycled tire rubber covered with decorative wear layer of fine virgin EPDM or TPV granules. Cushion layer thickness is customized on-site to meet your play equipment’s unique and varying fall heights, saving you money
  • Available in several options to meet your site-specific needs
  • Can be installed over asphalt, concrete, or compacted sub-base aggregate
  • Because the rubber and urethane components are mixed and applied on site, having school colors, logos, games and/or geometric shapes permanently incorporated into the surface are practical possibilities.
