Surfacing

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, 70% of injuries on public playgrounds are due to falls from equipment. The installation of an impact-absorbing surface underneath and around play structures is essential. Consult your Eagle sales associate to discuss various options.

Eagle Brand High Traffic Mats™ eliminate the need to constantly re-spread chips or wood fiber in high-traffic areas on your playground. Placing a mat below slide exits and underneath swings ensures that a proper safety surface always exists. Mats also eliminate the muddy conditions that can develop in high-traffic areas. Depending on an owner’s preference, High Traffic Mats™ can be placed above or below surfacing material.

Engineered Wood Fiber

Engineered Wood Fiber is the least expensive, impact-absorbing safety surface that complies with accessibility guidelines. It requires occasional raking and replenishment to maintain its resiliency.

Poured-in-place Rubber Surfacing

Available in a variety of colors, Poured-in-place Rubber Surface provides a more maintenance-free surface option than chips or wood fiber and can be tailor made for all critical fall heights. It can be used on the entire play area or only in specific areas. Generally, Poured-in-place Rubber is the most expensive safety surface.

Rubberbond Surfacing

Rubberbond is a safe, thick, and soft surfacing option. Rubberbond can be installed over compacted dirt, and uses no binder in their cushion layer, producing a softer surface. To produce a longer lasting surface, Rubberbond is 6 times thicker than any other surfacing product with a long lasting 100% color top surface. Rubberbond is also a Green product, utilizing recycled rubber in every layer of it’s surfacing system.

Shredded Rubber

Shredded Rubber, usually made from recycled automobile tires, is also used as an impact-absorbing surface. It is more expensive than Engineered Wood Fiber and is nearly as expensive as Poured-in-place Rubber Surfaces. Shredded Rubber Surfaces require periodic raking and replenishment.
