Bonded Rubber  

Our bonded rubber is an alternative to traditional poured rubber surfaces. It provides the same highly accessible one-piece surface but utilizes larger pieces than pured-in-place rubber.

It is poured on-site in a single-layer system that resembles bonded rubber mulch, achieving a natural appearance for your outdoor facility. It is pourous, drains well, and dries quickly. Some of our custom colors resemble wood fibers or other natural materials, but since the material is bonded together, it doesn't require the same upkeep and maintenance. Our bonded rubber surfacing will not blow away, or migrate outside the play area.

Playgrounds are more than just a fun place for kids to spend free time - they are a source for learning and  fun. While they are great for outdoor play, local playgrounds are said to benefit child development as well as your community’s overall well-being in a number of different ways. 

Playtime is Key for Child Development

The act of playing is how children learn to engage and interact with the world. Play is so important that it has been deemed a birthright for kids. According to the Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, play “has been recognized by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights as a right of every child.” With that said, it’s crucial that families, teachers and caregivers encourage this fun behavior in children to help benefit their development.
