GroundRubber Play

GroundRubber Play nuggets provide the safest playground surface for our children while preserving the environment.  The nuggets provide a long lasting, softer alternative to wood and sand.  Municipalities, school districts, residential home owners and commercial end users have opted to use GroundRubber Play nuggets to ensure and economic, environmental and safer playground surface.

Known as the safest play surface on the market, GroundRubber meets CPSC Surface guidelines, as well as ASTM Guidelines (F-1292-99, and F-1951-99).  At a depth of 6-inches, GroundRubber provides the most shock absorption in playgrounds available on the market today!  With GroundRubber installed, playgrounds are twice as safe as those with tan-bark, sand, pebbles and most other surfaces!

GroundRubber may cost a little more than other surfaces, however, it only needs to be installed once.  No annual upgrading or replacement is required.

Our GroundRubber Play material is perfect for the following applications:

  • School Playgrounds
  • Daycare Centers and Preschools
  • Churches
  • Residential Play Areas
  • City, State. Federal Parks
