Our client presented us with a play area surfaced by loose fill rubber bark. Their main issue is that the bark blows around their garden. At this point, it is fair to point out that not all rubber bark is the same! Our bark has a great mix of shavings and chip in it so, even when loose applied, it does not blow away. They required a permanent play surface so their children could use it all year round.
We scoped the project and recommended a resin bonded rubber bark. This is a safe, long-lasting, and colourful play surface. We set about collecting the old rubber bark and removing it from the play area. We then applied a 40mm to 75mm resin bonded rubber bark. The varying depth was used to ensure that their play surface met critical fall height regulations.
Our client now has a versatile and colourful surface. This is fully impact absorbent, so their children can play safely. The recycled rubber surface is permeable so rain will pass through. The rubber absorbs some of the suns warmth and this allows the surface to dry that little bit quicker. Most importantly, this surface is permanent and will not rot, decompose or blow away!
