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. This product features 7 color options including 3 ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) mixed color possibilities that will enhance the appearance of any playground surfacing.
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 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility when used with our ADA border ramp edging.
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 out 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.
Made in the USA with recycled content, this interlocking rubber surfacing is sure to enhance the appearance of any playground. It ships from the Pacific Northwest, making it a great opt-in for our west coast customers. 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 more than 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 are proof that we've taken great steps to protect children while maintaining an attractive and durable rubber tile design.
Outstanding features of these tiles include:
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 requirements by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) through TUV SUD, 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. Interlocking tiles eliminate these problems and offer the assurance of safe surfacing for children's play areas.
Interlocking tiles for playgrounds are available in two color options: EPDM and standard color topped. The first is a surface wear layer of colored EPDM rubber granules. The second color option is a surface layer of colored tire crumb rubber. This economical option includes Black, Red, Blue and Green. Tiles with these colors can used in combination to create appealing playground designs.
With a full complement of ancillary shapes including inside corners, outside corners and beveled edges, these tiles allow for a multitude of playground design options to enhance the ground level play opportunities for children.
Made from durable styrene-butadiene (SBR) tire rubber, Interlocking Playground 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, we offer an interlocking option. This handy interlocking feature can help prevent gapping 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.
Interlocking tiles can be easily and economically installed over a variety of 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. With the interlocking mat design, these tiles can be dry laid or glued down, depending on your need for permanency.
Interlocking Playground 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.
Our 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 those poured-in-place.
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 Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building certification.

can this be placed over old crushed stone patio?
how does one keep these lock over time. because it looks like its strinking and the seams are 2'' apart out on the playgrounds. its causing a tripping hazard.
Can this be installed over dirt? It is currently a grassy area that will be ripped out with only dirt remaining.
What is the recycled material these are made from? Is the material safe over long term for kids?
