Rubber Designs Wear Mats provide protection and help keep critical safety surfacing in place and in good condition to ensure continued compliance. Adding a heavy-duty rubber wear mat high use zones like under swings, at the base of slides, and other play components where landing, dragging of feet, or other movements can help preserve critical safety surfacing.
In high-traffic locations, engineered wood fiber (EWF) and other loose-fill surfacing can be kicked away, resulting in deep ruts that lack the necessary cushioning qualities. These ruts also render the surfacing non-ADA wheelchair accessible. In addition, heavy traffic on poured-in-place and other unitary surfaces can produce rips and worn patches.
Wear Mats are a cost-effective and straightforward way to prevent these frequent surface concerns. As a result, the playground is safer and more inclusive. Plus, they pay for themselves by decreasing the need for raking in high-traffic areas – over time, a little, one-time investment will result in significant labor savings. So stock your space with high-quality playground wear mats today!
