Recycled rubber grass mats are used in play areas which have natural grass surfaces but need additional safety qualities to protect kids while still maintaining the natural appearance.
The rubber tiles are formed in a honeycomb shape which means natural grass is able to grow up through the holes to disguise the look of the rubber.
We can install rubber matting for grass recreational areas to give enhanced safety qualities which meet requirements for various different types of playground features in parks and schools.
