Benefits of Soft Play surfaces 

There are numerous advantages to installing a soft play surface.

Here are some benefits associated with rubber play area mulch:

  • Safety: A key advantage is safety. High-quality soft play flooring offers cushioning and absorbs impacts, lowering the risk of injuries from falls from play equipment. Materials like rubber mulch or wetppour offer a softer surface compared to concrete or asphalt and are installed to conform to playground equipment critical fall height.
  • Accessibility: Certain types of soft play surfaces can be tailored to meet accessibility standards, ensuring inclusivity for children with disabilities or mobility limitations.
  • Durability: Designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, vigorous play, and exposure to the elements, soft play surfacing is durable. Premium materials resist fading, tearing, and damage from weather conditions, ensuring long-lasting performance.
  • Hygiene: Many play area flooring options are easy to clean and maintain, preventing the buildup of dirt, debris, and bacteria. This is especially crucial for outdoor play areas where children may encounter soil, grass, or other potentially unsanitary surfaces.
  • Comfort: Soft and resilient play area flooring provides a comfortable surface for various activities such as running, jumping, crawling, or sitting. This promotes extended playtime and minimises fatigue or discomfort.

These are just a few of the benefits associated with children's play area flooring.

Types of Soft Playing Surfaces

There are various types of soft play surfaces. 

For example, rubber wetpour, rubber mulch or artificial grass are just a few. 

Rubber Wetpour 

Rubber wetpour is a porous safety surface and a popular choice for play areas.

The surface is made by mixing EPDM with a resin binder.

Wetpour comes in a variety of different colours and graphics to brighten up any play area.

Wetpour also requires little maintenance, one of its many benefits. 

Rubber Mulch

Rubber mulch is an all weather permeable safety surface, with a bark-like finish.

Bonded rubber mulch surfacing can be laid directly over compacted earth/ uneven ground or a suitable sub base, if it needs to conform to a critical fall height.

This is another popular playground surface, made from high grade materials. 

Artificial Grass

Artificial turf is an artificial surface designed to mimic the appearance of a real grass lawn.

Artificial grass is popular in schools and is also pet friendly, installed for a range of uses.

The surface requires minimal upkeep and maintains an excellent appearance. 

What are Soft Playing Surfaces?

Soft playing surfaces are the excellent flooring materials used to prevent injuries in children enjoying school areas.

A common example of this is wetpour surfacing as it is soft for children and can be installed in a variety of vibrant, bright colours.

Other flooring that we specialise in include rubber-mulch surfacing and rubberised grass mats.

The rubber mulch specification also known as bonded bark or bound rubberised mulch is often installed to playgrounds or trim trail surfaces which want a more natural looking finish in comparison to the brightly coloured wetpour rubber.

The grass mats are square rubber tiles which fit together and are installed to existing natural grass areas.

The rubber squares have holes in them to let the natural grass grow through, so the impact absorbing qualities are achieved but you still get the appearance of real grass in the play area.

How to Maintain Soft Surfaces Near Me

When looking how to maintain soft surfaces, please think about these steps:

  1. Brush the surfacing regularly
  2. Clean the soft flooring if you notice contamination
  3. Inspect the surfacing for cracks, rips or any other kind of damage
  4. Repair damages straight away

Our services also include the maintenance of these types of rubber designs to help you keep the surfacing in top condition all year round and prevent the need for any repairs.

However if you do need to fix any damage to the wetpour surfacing, we could supply you with a handy repair kit so you can carry out any small repairs yourself.

For each of the types we install such as wetpour, grass mats and rubber bark surfacing we offer a range of maintenance services so don't hesitate to ask if you need any help or advice.

Maintaining surfaces can be relatively easy but depends mostly on the determination of the owner.

We always recommend a proactive maintenance strategy as it will mean the court will look good for much longer and will ensure the court lasts much longer.

A simple sweeping session using a brush would remove all dirt from the surface to ensure no pores are blocked and that water can pass through easily.

If dirt is blocking the pores, the water drainage system is completely useless. By brushing your facility, you will also be ensuring that the court looks as vibrant as it was when it was first employed.
