Safety is the most important feature when choosing the right playground floor surface. Today, more and more states and municipalities are legislating regulations on playground surfacing especially in areas where slides, swings and other high equipment is placed. When choosing safe playground flooring be sure to keep in mind the following items. Each form of playground flooring is designed to meet different needs.

1. Will the playground flooring be installed indoors or outdoors?
2. What is the height of playground equipment this flooring will be installed under? What potential fall height is present?
3. Will your playground flooring be exposed to significant amounts of sunlight or water?
4. What temperature range does the playground environment present?
5. Will you playground floor present potential tripping hazards?
6. What potential is there for hidden hazards on your playground floor?
7. How difficult will it be to maintain or repair?
8. How much and what kind of traffic will be present on you playground?
9. What is the longevity of the flooring used in your playground?
10. What are the installation requirements to ensure your playground flooring lasts and remains safe to play on?
11. How big of an area are you looking to cover?

Rubber Playground Flooring
Rubber playground surface tile is an excellent playground matting option to meet those requirements. Our rubber playground tiles stay in place and, unlike sand, wood chips or rubber crumbs, they do not require daily upkeep to maintain a consistent fall height rating.

Rubber playground matting makes it difficult for foreign objects such as broken glass or nails to hide under your equipment. Greatmats tiles are easy to install with a handy, interlocking tile-to-tile design. They are a more convenient playground matting option than 'pour-in-place' playground flooring. Worn tiles can be replaced individually as opposed to repairing worn areas of poured flooring.

Greatmats' playground matting is offered in a variety of colors and designs to help fit your individual needs. Our rubber mats and tiles are available in several bright or natural color options. Each matting option offers a unique set of colors and designs to help you customize your product. Forest green, red and terra cotta are the most popular playground mat colors. However, you can be as creative as you wish with our premium color mixtures.

Consider whether interlocking or straight edge tiles will best fit your playground needs. Many outdoor rubber playground tile installations require a complete glue down application, but Greatmats offers more convenient options. Some of our flooring is held together using an aluminum clip installation system while other options have interlocking tabs that are glued together. Neither of these options requires a full glue-down installation. These playground rubber mats will last for 20 years in most installations and are recyclable at the end of their useful lives.

Our bounce back tiles range from 1.75 inches to 4 inches thick, offering fall ratings of 3 to 10 feet. They are non-slip, UV resistant, made in the USA and come with a 10-year warranty.

Sterling playground tiles range from 2 to 5.25 inches thick, are available in six color options and carry a 10 year warranty. At at 5.25 inch thickness, this playground flooring can accommodate a 12 foot fall height. Two inch thick tiles are three foot fall height rated.

Blue Sky interlocking playground tiles range from 1.5 to 3.75 inches thick. The thickest of the tiles carries a 10 foot fall height rating and six year limited warranty. Somer of these tiles are offer more than a dozen color options.

Playground matting is typically installed by professional landscape contractors. In residential applications, however, most homeowners will be able to install our rubber playground mats on their own. Greatmats provides installation instructions and phone assistance for all of our playground rubber mats and rubber flooring.

For most flooring, we recommend a hard, flat sub-surface, such as compacted and leveled crushed stone, as a base. Existing concrete or asphalt can work as well.

Why do rubber playground mats need a solid subsurface?
Laying rubber playground mats over dirt, sand or grass will first. However, as the ground begins to erode beneath the tiles, your playground surface will become uneven. This leads to a variety of problems. As some tiles sink, others will not, creating tripping hazards and low lying areas. Water will naturally find these low lying areas and accelerate the erosion. A subfloor of compacted gravel or concrete eliminates this problem and makes for much less work over time.

Available in either rubber or soft polyvinyl chloride (PVC), we have the playground tiles you need to fit your home and commercial needs.

Plastic Playground flooring
If you are looking to install playground matting on an irregular surface, such as grass, sand or dirt, our modular flexible PVC playground tiles may be what you are looking for. With a 20 inch fall height rating from the ASTM, these PVC tiles are ideal for toddlers on smaller playground equipment.

Homes, pre-schools and daycares benefit from the easy installation of our perforated PVC playground tiles. It is an excellent choice for any outdoor floor surface. Unlike other playground surfaces, these playground tiles do not require any special surface preparation prior to installation. These tiles will easily and simply interlock together with tab and loop connectors. The perforated design helps keep your playground surface dry and slip resistant as water simply flows through the tiles rather than pooling on top. Border edge strips are also available.

Greatmats offers Staylock Perforated tiles in five colors and black. They are UV stable for 7 years, are waterproof and resistant to most oils and acids. These playground tiles are 1x1 foot in size and 9/16 inch thick. Staylock tiles boast a 5 year limited warranty.

Another perforated PVC playground tile option is the Ergo Matta Perforated outdoor tile.

Ergo Matta PVC playground tiles are 1.67 feet long and .83 feet wide and weight 1.6 pounds each. They are UV treated and feature a 5 year limited warranty.

For a more natural looking, low maintenance playground surface, you may want to consider our artificial grass turf tile. The lush artificial turf surface is comfortable on bare feet, easy to install and has a drain through design for water. The polypropylene playground flooring is non-absorbent and UV treated.

Indoor Foam Playground Flooring
Greatmats also carries playground tiles for indoor playground locations that provide a four-foot fall height rating. At 1-5/8 inch thick, they are made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam and are easy-to-install interlocking foam mats. Indoor mats feature a durable tatami style top texture that is comfortable for bare feet or socks. Lead and latex free, these tiles are waterproof and easy to clean.

Swing mats
Swing mats are available to protect the ground from eroding in high traffic playground areas. You can use these types of rubber outdoor playground mats in places in areas of extra wear and tear, such as slide landing zones. They help limit maintenance as this 2 inch thick rubber mat weights 80 pounds which helps it stay in place in areas of high activity.

Our Swing mats are made from recycled rubber and feature beveled edges. These forms of playground mats are intended to be used for coverage of small high wear areas.

Slide mats
For a lighter weight option for small areas, consider our 1 inch thick rubber Blue Sky slide mats. These mats are 2 feet by 4 feet in dimension and weigh just 33 pounds. They offer a non-slip surface suited for outdoor installations and are made in the USA. Blue Sky slide mats are available in four color options and will not mold or mildew.

Shipping of all 2 feet by 2 feet rubber tiles is via freight delivery. Our modular 1 foot by 1 foot tiles can ship via ground service for smaller installations.

Large coverage areas
