Benefits of SafetyFirst’s slide and swing set mats:
- Maintains minimum surfacing depth requirements to meet safety standards
- Reduces surfacing displacement under slides and swings
- Decreases the need for maintenance such as raking and mat placement
- Reduces the risk of divots that collect water and mud under high-traffic areas
Traditional rubber mats for under swing sets and slides are commonly made from thin and lighter rubber. This causes the mats to quickly become worn due to high traffic use and easily shift and move around. Our swing set and slide mats are made from SafetyFirst’s uniquely designed, 100% recycled rubber ImpactMats. We use a double-layer, dense rubber that weighs 240 pounds, considerably more than traditional safety mats, to support high traffic use by maintaining its structure and remaining under swings or slides.
When playground mats become worn or move around, it displaces the surfacing forming pits under the event. Since our swing set and slide mats don’t move, it protects the surfacing to ensure it never drops below minimum depth requirements. The slide and swing set safety mats also remove the risk of swampy or potentially hazardous holes. Since surfacing is not being displaced, you or your maintenance team don’t need to continually rake the surfacing.
SafetyFirst’s playground mats for under swings and slides are ASTM 1292 compliant when used with 9 inches of Nature’sPlus surfacing, our engineered wood fiber.
