Bonded rubber mulch flooring is a spongy soft play flooring made from rubber bark which is bonded together with a polyurethane resin.
We specialise in rubber surfaces for children’s playgrounds and pathways for golf clubs, leisure centres.
Rubber flooring can provide a durable pathway or playground area. They create a natural looking pathway which bend easily with the natural environment.
Poured in situ it can be laid around equipment and rubber mulch can accommodate shaped edges easily.
Rubber mulch specification makes the surface suitable for covering muddy areas around school and around tree pits .
Rubber mulch can cost less than other surfaces, this is however dependent on the required base works.
The cost saving with rubber flooring over wet pour or other synthetic surfaces is due to its abilty to be laid onto a geotextile over soil.
Rubber mulch is installed using a in situ method. The rubber surface is produced from vehicle tyres which are produced in bark shape pieces.
They are mixed close to the installation site with a polyurethane resin in a paddle mixer. The proportion of rubber to resin are important to ensure a stable finished structure.
The rubber mixture is screeded to the final required depth and smoothed to produce a pathway.
Once installed the rubber and resin mix require at least 24 hours to fully cure into the final surface.
Rubber mulch can be laid around playground equipment and provide the required critical fall height .
Commercial play setting are required to provide a playground surface which has a tested critical fall height.
Bonded rubber mulch is an excellent flooring for running tracks.
With schools focussing on increasing pupil fitness the mile a day challenge has proven to be a popular choice.
Running one mile everyday on school uniform at a convenient point in the day is any easy way to improve fitness.
