Outdoor Rubber Flooring For Playgrounds – Designing Your Perfect Playground
Outdoor rubber flooring for playgrounds provides the perfect surface to play on; this is especially true for young children and those who are prone to accidents. Its soft surface and impact absorbance means hours of fun with no nasty injuries. If you are considering a new floor, then careful planning is essential.
Your soft rubber playground surface needs to last for years to come, so it is essential that you get it right the first time. Professional surfacing contractors will support you at every step, including choosing the right surface for your requirements, but it helps if you have an idea of what it is you are looking for. Firstly, how big is the area you looking to have resurfaced? Will it encompass the entire playground or just a section of it - for example, around existing play equipment? Also consider whether you are looking at a complete remodel, including adding climbing and play equipment. This is important as the height of the climbing apparatus and the potential fall height will affect the thickness of wet pour or rubber mulch that is required for your playground flooring. You will also need to plan for any decorative shapes or pictures that you want to be present in your new surface. How big and what colour do you want them to be? Also consider where they need to be placed. If you plan to include pictures, it is important to look at the plans from different angles to ensure they look right and fit together as a whole. It is also important to know what your surfacing budget is and how much, if any, surplus you have.
