Play Area & School Playground Surfacing

At SSP. Specialised Sports Products Ltd we are one of the UK’s leading children’s play area surfacing company who can carry out projects across the country. There is a wide variety of playground flooring available for your play area, which will meet your needs, requirements and will be a suitable surface for your facility. The surfacing that we have available includes EPDM wet pour rubber crumb, safety surfacing, synthetic turf and artificial grass including 2G, 3G, and 4G synthetic grass. These surface types are popular for play areas, parks, schools and nurseries because their benefit for children’s play.

The flooring that we commonly install to playgrounds and are frequently asked about is wet pour rubber surfacing . This is the most popular safety flooring for areas which young children will be using, this is because it is a safe surface which meets the necessary safety standards and Critical Fall Height (CFH) needed. Wet pour rubber surfacing is available in a range of bright colours, including shades of blues, greens, reds, purples, oranges, yellows, and pinks with numerous graphics available. The benefits of having wet pour are that you have safety flooring which is porous, UV protected, non-toxic, durable and it lets you be creative and make a unique surface as graphic designs can be inserted into the flooring.

Synthetic turf or artificial grass has a natural look and offers a good alternative to natural grass. Some of the many advantages of artificial grass are that it is a long lasting, hard wearing surface that can be used effectively during most weather conditions allowing outdoor play. Artificial grass can be used in playgrounds in schools and pre-schools and nurseries. We normally suggest that if they have artificial turf in an area that has play equipment, such as climbing frames and slides, then an impact absorbing underlay such as ProPlay be installed.

ProPlay Impact Matting beneath artificial grass offers critical fall heights of up to 3m. A number of schools request activity flooring in their playground. Activity surfacing can be a range of artificial grass surfaces combined with wet pour rubber surfaces or existing macadam surfaces with permanent markings. If you want something which can be used in a schools PE lessons then you could have a macadam court, which a range of line markings on it. Some facilities have a tarmac surface and want to brighten it up a bit, they could choose thermoplastic markings These types of markings are quick to apply and they are a cost effective way to renovate your flooring. As well as being fun, they can be educational as well, this is because of the range of markings which are available. There are some to meet each key stage and are suitable for all kinds of ages and learning purposes.


Multi use games areas are a popular surface to have in schools, parks and leisure facilities. This is because having a MUGA lets you play multiple games on one surface, rather than having a court which is only suitable for one type of sport. The games and activities that can be played on a Muga varies but to get some ideas visit Common choices for primary school playgrounds are netball, basketball, tennis, football, rugby and hockey. A 3G synthetic grass surface is best for dedicated football areas but for MUGA’s a more multi use artificial grass system is best.

The types of surfaces which we have available are polymeric, macadam, needle punched synthetic turf, 3G artificial grass turf, 2G sand dressed and 2G sand filled artificial grass and each of these fits into different price ranges. Type 1 and type 2 multi-use games areas have macadam flooring and are ideal for basketball and netball. Type 3 & 4 are MultiSport polymeric NBS Q26 230 in situ polymeric sports court surfaces which are suitable for netball, 5-a-side football and basketball. Type 5A MUGA specifications are 2G sand filled turf, this is good for football and hockey. Multi use games areas with type 5B have a 2G sand dressed surface, this is great for recreational and professional hockey matches as it provides a smooth ball roll. Type 5C has a synthetic needle punch surface, this has many uses such as football, hockey and athletics. The last type of specification is 3G, this is artificial grass which is commonly used for football and rugby and provides similar playing characteristics to natural grass. As there is a wide variety of designs and surface types to choose from, we are able to guide you in the right direction and aid you with the whole planning and installation process, as well as helping you to source funding for the work.

Carrying out regular maintenance for a MUGA is very important; there are two main types of maintenance, proactive and reactive. Proactive is the cleaning you do you prevent any damages occurring and reactive maintenance is done to fix and repair any surface problems. If you have a multi-use games area which has been damaged then you should have the issue fixed as soon as possible. This is because leaving damage can make it worse and can increase the amount of reactive specialist maintenance needed. We offer a bespoke service for MUGAs and we have carried out all kinds of maintenance projects across the UK to a high standard for further information visit our maintenance website

As we are specialists we can design, install and carry out professional cleaning and repairs to a top grade, please get in touch with us if you’d like more information on our MUGA services including an idea of costs for our work.

When looking into a specific type of flooring option then there is a lot to consider before choosing which you think looks the best as each surface type has different qualities. For example if you are installing an impact absorbing play surface around trees we would recommend artificial grass surfaces however if a nursery would like graphics in the surface like hopscotches, roadways, numbered games and alphabet designs then the wet pour rubber tarmac surface or synthetic grass systems are the best options.
