Greatmats' interlocking rubber playground surfacing is a popular and dependable outdoor option that can be found in playgrounds throughout the country. It provides long-term safety while offering ADA accessibility when used with our ADA border ramp edging. This rubber surface tile is also available in many varieties of thicknesses, with the largest being 4 inches.

Unlike other surfacing options such as wood chips or loose-fill sand or gravel, these tiles do not have to be continually raked to maintain a safe surface for your playground. The solid design of these playground surface tiles makes it impossible for foreign objects to hide out of sight. This provides a safer environment for children. Also, unlike poured-in-place rubber surfacing, you don't have to replace your entire surface if some of the higher-wear areas begin to wear down. If you have a tile that's wearing down because of heavy use (maybe it is under a swing set or at the base of a slide) you can simply replace that tile. No patching or excessive labor is required.

This interlocking tile is an excellent safety surface that is fall-height rated for indoor or outdoor usage. It will perform year-round in all weather conditions for years. In addition to black, this product also features standard colors and colorful EPDM mixed color options that will enhance the appearance of any playground surfacing.

Fall Heights in Feet:
6 Feet equals 2.5 inch thickness
8 Feet equals 3.5 inch thickness

For 10 foot fall height, please see our Bounce Back Playground Tiles.

Made in the USA with recycled content, this interlocking rubber surfacing is sure to enhance the appearance of any playground. This tile is an excellent safety surface that is fall-height rated for indoor or outdoor usage. It will last for years and perform with whatever weather conditions you are faced with.

Each year over 200,000 children are injured on playgrounds in the United States. Many of these injuries result from children falling onto inadequate surfacing. Our Interlocking Playground Tiles take great steps to protect children while maintaining an attractive and durable rubber tile design. Outstanding features of these tiles include:

Safety: Our Interlocking Playground Tiles are designed to meet federally mandated Critical Fall Height requirements for playground equipment up to 8 feet tall. These rubber playground tiles have been certified to comply with these requirements by IPEMA through TUV/SUD, which is a third party, independent testing/certification laboratory. Additionally, the manufacturer conducts regular, in-house Critical Fall Height testing as part of their Quality Control plan.

No other playground surfacing material offers the degree of safety assurance that rubber tiles can provide. Wood and rubber mulch products are easily displaced, resulting in inadequate thickness/protection in large areas of the playground. They also present an undesirable and dangerous material that children can swallow, throw or kick. Poured-in-place products are subject to climatic variation during installation, which makes the durability and lifespan of the material unpredictable. These tiles are produced to eliminate these problems and offer the assurance of safe surfacing for children's play areas.

Color Options: Interlocking tiles are available in EPDM and standard color tops. The first is a surface wear layer of colored EPDM rubber granules. This option includes the EPDM colors. A second color option is a surface layer of colored tire crumb rubber. This economical option includes Black, Red, Blue, and Green. Different colors can used in combination to create very appealing playground designs to enhance the ground level play options for children.

Design Flexibility: With a full complement of ancillary shapes including inside corners, outside corners and beveled edges, Interlocking tiles allow for a multitude of playground design options.

Durability: Made from durable SBR tire rubber, Interlocking tiles offer durability unmatched by any other surfacing option. They will provide a safe surface for children to play on for many years.

For added protection against both vertical and horizontal shifting of the installation sub-floor, the interlocking feature can help prevent gaping and provide a uniform appearance for the playground surface. The interlocking mechanism is very easy to utilize and requires no special effort or technique during installation.

Installation Ease: Interlocking tiles can be easily and economically installed over a variety sub-surfaces. Once an installation sub-surface has been properly prepared, the tiles can usually be installed by the customer's maintenance crew. This cannot be said of poured-in-place surfacing, which requires expensive contractors and specialized equipment to effectively install.

Maintenance Ease: Interlocking Tiles are virtually maintenance free; there is no need for time consuming maintenance or expensive annual replenishment like mulch products. Most cleaning simply involves a broom, garden hose or leaf blower. Replacing damaged tiles is as easy as removing the tile and installing a new one. This is not the case with other playground options which require costly and unattractive poured-in-place surface repairs.

Moisture Permeability: Interlocking Tiles are designed to allow rainwater to flow through the tile surface and away from the playground, as opposed to forming puddles on the surface. This allows children to resume play after bad weather sooner than they could on other surfaces such as poured-in-place.

Environmental: Interlocking Playground Tiles are made from 100% recycled rubber and a specially engineered polymer binder. Because of the high level of recycled material in each tile, these products meet and exceed the requirements set forth in U.S Executive Order 13101, Greening the Government, and they can be a contributing factor towards LEED Green Building certification.

American Made Quality: We are proud to state that these Interlocking Tiles are made in the USA. These playground safety tiles are covered by the manufacturer's industry leading 10 Year Limited Warranty.

Ships on 52x76 inch pallets. Generally LTL carriers will only deliver two of these pallets on the same truck. When a customer requests lift gate delivery for interlocking tiles the total delivery amount is delivered over the period of a couple of days. This makes the freight cost very high. If the number of pallets is high it is generally better for the end user to rent a forklift in order to offload.

This product has a minimum order of 50 tiles.

Product Questions:

What does a properly prepared surface consist of?
A hard flat surface of concrete, asphalt or similar, or 3 to 4 inches of compacted and leveled crushed stone.
Do they get hot in full sun?
Black will get warmer than lighter colors, the tiles can absorb heat and they are designed to be used with shoes. The heat of the tiles will be determined by the climate. Not as hot as asphalt would get.

Great product sturdy and looks good.

Customer Rating:

Greatmats and their product earned a perfect 10.0. We experienced excellent customer service from the initial easy to navigate web visit on through e-mail and phone question and answer sessions. The 2.5 black interlocking tiles met all our expectations and then some. We were pleased to be able to cut a couple of tiles and fit them to an existing retaining wall. The interlocking feature is providing great holding power and stability.

Many thanks Greatmats for providing a superior product for our toddler's outdoor play area restoration.
