Importance of Playground Rubber Surfacing Using Retreaded Truck Tire Buffings
Each year, more than 200,000 kids are treated in hospital ERs for playground-related injuries.
Playground Rubber Surfacing using retreaded truck tire buffing’s is the smart, safest, economic and environmental solution in playground safety surfacing. Rubber Surfacing provides up to a 59% savings versus wood mulch or engineered wood fiber (EWF) over a 12 year period.
Playground Rubber Surfacing helps improve playground and play area safety for children of all ages. Playground Rubber Mulch and Pour in Place are uniquely designed and manufactured to not only meet, but exceed today’s playground safety standards and guidelines.
When compared with other playground safety surfaces, Playground Rubber Surfacing cushions a child’s fall and provides up to 2.5 times more fall height protection than grass, dirt, sand, pea gravel, wood mulch, engineered wood fiber (EWF). The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends the use of Rubber Mulch and Rubber Pour in Place as a playground safety surface.
Playground Rubber Surfacing meets the criteria required by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) for certification as a playground or play area safety surface and wheelchair accessibility.
A proper playground surface is one of the most important factors in reducing injuries — and the severity of injuries — that occur when kids fall from equipment. The surface under the playground equipment should be soft enough and thick enough to soften the impact of a child's fall.
