Made from granulated used tyres, this product both finds a way to extend the useful life of a previously useless commodity and provides a low-maintenance yet highly effective surface that prevents injury from falls and grazing in playground landscaping.


In contrast with other playground surfaces such as sand and bark chippings, rubber crumb is clean, more hygienic, maintains an even thickness over the entire area and is better at absorbing impact.

As this industry has developed, so has the demand for more imaginative use of the product to design more creative and visually stimulating pay areas. Once only available in black, rubber crumb surfaces can now be produced in a variety of colours and these are used to mark out different zones either for safety or to create a more visually appealing recreational area.

To demarcate these zones, edging must first be installed to provide a clear border between the colours and surrounding areas of hard or soft landscaping such as paving, asphalt and grass. This edging also maintains the integrity of the surface’s border, preventing erosion due to heavy traffic.
