Our rubber mulch safety surfacing is a durable bonded rubber playground mulch that is made from recycled rubber and designed to resemble woodchip – ideal where a natural appearance is required.

The unique bonded rubber mulch formula makes for an ideal playground surface, as well as being a surfacing option that is cost-effective to install on any ground.

Installation of an engineered sub-base is always recommended as this will improve performance and extend product life. Creative Play will always quote for an engineered sub-base with any rubber mulch installation.

Our Guarantee

Our rubber mulch safety Surfacing is guaranteed for 12 months for structural integrity. Due to the recycled nature of the rubber playground surfaces and the way they are manufactured, we cannot guarantee colour fastness of the product, with our playgrounds rubber mulch products in some cases able to result in colour transfer.

There are a number of variables affecting exactly how long the colour of the surface will last, taking into account elements such as UV light, heavy usage and other environmental conditions. Our team of experts will be happy to talk you through how to best maintain and protect your surface to ensure it looks its best for many years.
