What makes bound
rubber safer surfacing systems ideal for use in play surfaces?
Rubber tile safety surfaces require
little or no maintenance. There thickness remains constant and therefore
so does the performance, unlike loose fill surfaces such as sand, bark etc.
Rubber surfaces are wheelchair accessible, do not hide broken glass,
needles and other debris dangerous to children. Porous rubber systems
provide an all weather surface for children to enjoy.
How do I determine the
depth of surfacing I may require?
The depth of any play surface is
determined by the height of individual play equipment, as is the size of
the area required. The manufacturer of your play equipment will be able
to advise you of these dimensions. If you are unable to obtain this
information for what ever reason, simply measure the platform height,
length and width of the play equipment and contact us for advise.
Can Play Tiles be used
to reduce noise?
Play Tiles have been used to reduce noise
levels where noise from wheeled toys over concrete has caused a problem.
Although we are unable to supply data on noise level reduction.
Should my rubber
surfacing become damaged can it be repaired - cheaply and easily?
Our rubber Play Tiles are extremely
durable and a very strong adhesive can be used to bond them to a
concrete or tarmac surface, helping fend off vandals is unsecured open
areas. Should your surface become damaged, either a whole tile or
quarter tile square can be replaced with relative ease. As our tiles are
prefabricated repairs can be carried out quickly and without closing
down a play area, unlike a wet pour repair that would require an
extended curing time.
Do I need a qualified
tradesman to install my play surface?
Tiles are prefabricated into 1m2
slabs. They lend themselves to local contractor or D.I.Y. installation.
They can be inset level with the existing ground or surface mounted onto
existing concrete or tarmac surfaces. An installation guide comes with
our info pack or see our online installation
My play area is an awkward
shape, can tiles be cut to fit?
Yes - Our rubber tiles are easily cut to
shape using a sharp Stanley knife or a power jigsaw.
Are Play Tiles a
better option than a wet pour surface?
Play Tiles are prefabricated into shape
under pressure in a heated press, providing a more sturdy construction
than poured in place systems. This makes them less prone to vandalism,
should a tiled surface become damaged in any way a single tile or
quarter tile can be replaced with relative ease.
Can you supply wet
pour? Does my application require wet pour?

most applications, if you send us an email with details of your

can advise you as to your best option. If your application warrants wet
pour we will pass your details on to the contractors who deal with our

tiles for my garden, what the minimum quantity I can order?

customers, there is a minimum order quantity of four tiles.
Can rubber play tiles
be used for indoor applications?
Yes - you will not need to bond the tiles
down for internal applications, ideally penning tiles in position using surrounding
walls. You should consider obstacles such as door that may open into the
area, these can be work around by using ramps which can be used to help
pen in tile borders.
