Surfaces for schools and nurseries

We live in an age where technology and communication has had a detrimental effect on children’s physical activity. The emphasis for schools and day nurseries is how to stimulate inclusive, exciting and exploratory outside play. This is also coupled with a strong emphasis on safe play and this is where Safer Surfacing can help.All of our surfacing solutions have a critical fall height certification.

Our products are your surfacing solutions

Safer surfaces

Safer Surfacing manufacture, supply and install a wide variety of surfacing that can be installed in every play space. Because we manufacture our own recycled rubber surfacing products we are able to accommodate all sizes of school and nursery play surface projects.All of our products are recycled from used vehicle tyres and because we manufacture the finished product ourselves our products are far more cost-effective than a typical EPDM play surface. Our product range is recycled, sustainable and affordable.


Safer Surfacing wet pour is made from our recycled rubber chippings that have been granulated down to 1-4mm. The rubber crumb as it is commonly known is then mixed with resin to form a soft, durable and colourful play surface. Wetpour can be used over good quality existing hard surfaces such as tarmac and concrete, and in place of grass areas as long as a suitable sub-base has been installed.

Economy chipping

Our recycled rubber economy chipping is another example of our innovative product development. The 20mm chipping can be applied as loose fill surface or as a resin bound safety surface. The 20mm chip comes in a range of 8 colours and is our most affordable loose fill or resin-bound safety surface.The chipping is critical fall height certified with just 50mm covering providing a critical fall height certificate for 1.1m.

Classic Chippings

This is our most versatile landscaping material and is wire and fibre free. The classic chippings make a fantastic longlasting alternative to woodchip and gravel. The chippings are available in 8 colours currently with some exciting new colours being added in the near future.The loose fill option makes a fantastic playground surface also. You can see the chippings being used as a playground surface in this blog.

Rubber surfacing is safety tested for falls. The bouncy, soft surface feels pleasant to walk on. No hard stone or messy wood chip to clear up.

We have spent many years perfecting our bespoke colouring system that delivers the highest quality coating, with no colour transfer. The colour lasts, without fading, so you can enjoy your garden year after year.

Drainage is a big problem for urban areas. Our rubber surfacing (including resin bound) is completely permeable meaning waters drains away with no puddling or pooling.
