The rubber chippings are ideal for;
Gardens borders and pathways (they are fall attenuating certified)
Playgrounds, parks and schools (they make the ideal trampoline area ground cover)
Chicken runs (they are warm, clean and inert)
Equestrian arenas, (they resist frost far better than anything else on the market)
Roof terraces (they are light, sound dampening and warm)
Bowling greens (they make a soft and long lasting ditch fill)
Plant toppers (they make an ideal indoor and outdoor mulch, that doesn’t fade or decompose).
#fact – Chester Zoo’s Madagascar Play has over 95 tonnes of our rubber chippings!
Resin bound chippings make a safe, warm and colourful permanent surface. This is for outdoor rest areas on many commercial premises. The resin bound rubber chippings make a cost-effective pathway compared to wetpour.
How the rubber chippings are made
Take a look at our YouTube video here.
Our sister company is 300 Recycling Ltd. They collect used vehicle tyres from across the North West. They shred, granulate, separate and filter the tyres. This leaves us with a 20mm recycled rubber chipping. We then sieve, seal and colour the chippings to produce a colourful and long lasting product.
#fact – our rubber chippings score 8 on the on the Blue Wool Scale.
We produce the rubber chippings in a range of 8 colours (We can also mix them to suit your needs);
A very popular mix is the green, brown and terracotta. This mix is the most natural looking and is popular with parks and public playgrounds. Although dearer than your wood chip, our rubber chippings need no topping up and last for many years. Another key benefit is that they do not rot, and so do not puddle or stain clothes. The chippings provide instant colour and warmth, and less weeding! You can see our range of colours and our different sizes here at our online shop. We make it ourselves and always have plenty of stock too! The fact is that a lot of used vehicle tyres in the UK shipped abroad for disposal. They are either incinerated or even sent to landfill. We are recycling and re-using to make them into a wide range of useful products.
#fact – The UK disposes of over 100,000 tyres every single day in the UK
