Benefits of SafetyFirst’s rubber tire swing playground mats:
- Maintains minimum surfacing depth requirements to meet safety standards
- Reduces surfacing displacement under playground tire 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 outdoor safety mats for playgrounds are commonly made from thin and lighter rubber. This causes the rubber tire swing mats to quickly become worn due to high traffic use and easily shift and move around. Our playground safety mats are made from SafetyFirst’s uniquely designed, 100% recycled rubber ImpactMats. We use a double-layer, dense rubber that weighs 480 pounds, considerably more than traditional safety mats, to support high traffic use by maintaining its structure and remaining under playground tire swings.
When playground safety mats become worn or move around, it displaces the surfacing, forming pits under the event. Since our rubber tire swing mats don’t move, it protects the surfacing to ensure it never drops below minimum depth requirements. The outdoor safety mats for playgrounds 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 rubber safety mats for play areas are ASTM 1292 compliant when used with 9 inches of Nature’sPlus surfacing, our engineered wood fiber.
