Choosing the Right Playground Tiles for Your Project

We’re proud to offer a great assortment of playground tiles suitable for many different situations and uses. This means you’ll have plenty of choices, but it also means that you should be able to find the product that’s just right for your project.

Consider the following factors when choosing the right playground tiles for your needs.

Indoor or Outdoor Use

Some of our playground tiles are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, but most are intended for one or the other. If you’re looking for tiles for a playroom in your home, then foam mats might be the ideal option.

Outdoor spaces will require more durable tiles that can withstand the elements. Outdoor playground tiles need to be UV stable, so they won’t degrade or fade in the sun.

It’s also important to choose playground tiles that can withstand the temperature extremes that your area sees. These tiles also need to be waterproof.

Quality outdoor playground tiles are designed to drain water away quickly, helping to prevent it from pooling on the surface. Many of these tiles allow water to flow beneath them, so it drains away and dries quickly. This can also help to prevent mold and mildew growth for a healthier playground.

Indoor playground tiles must be low odor due to limited fresh air and air circulation in more confined spaces.


Don’t forget to consider the traction that a tile provides. A good playground tile will help to maximize traction both when it’s wet and dry, helping to prevent unnecessary slips and falls.


The type of material that you prefer is closely linked to whether you’ll be using the tiles outdoors or indoors. If you’re looking to buy foam tiles, then you’ll need to install them indoors only.

Rubber tiles offer increased durability. While foam is a softer surface, rubber is a better choice for outdoor use. It’s also a top choice for public playgrounds and commercial spaces that see high amounts of traffic and use.

Installation Method

Playground tiles are available with a variety of installation methods. A slide mat, for example, can be dry laid on top of existing flooring, while most tiles feature interlock designs that create secure connections.

Many outdoor tiles also require adhesive for a permanent installation. Consider the type of installation that’s best for the space you’re working with.


When you’re planning a playground, it’s always important to consider the safety of the floor that you’re installing. This is particularly true when you’re working with taller playground equipment and falls are possible.

Most of our playground tiles feature ASTM fall height ratings. Thicker tiles tend to have greater fall height ratings, meaning they can help to reduce the chances of serious injury when falls occur from greater heights. Rubber playground tiles offer more opportunities for greater fall height protection than foam tiles.

When determining the fall height rating that your playground surface needs to have, you’ll need to measure the highest equipment present on your playground. Then, choose a product with a fall height rating equal to or greater than that measurement.


Most playground tiles are designed to be low-maintenance. Look for tiles that can be easily swept or even blown off to keep them looking clean.

If you’re using tiles indoors, especially for a space in your home, then make sure that you can easily clean them up. Many foam tiles can be swept or even gently vacuumed for easy maintenance.

Spills can occur when kids are around, so review the cleaning instructions for the tiles to make sure that you can easily wipe up spills without the tiles becoming stained.
