Playground Safety Matting & Surfacing

Our most popular Playground Safety Matting & Surfacing system is the seamless Safebond wetpour system. Wetpour is installed onsite in a similar way to pouring concrete. The resulting surface is dry and ready to play on the following day.

1m² shockpads are laid over a compacted base and then 15mm of rubber is laid on top (In line with safety standards)
The thickness of the rubber applied is dependant on the required fall heights and substates.

New Zealand Safety Standard Compliant to NZ5828:2004.

Unique patterns and designs can easily be incorporated into this flexible system.

It is the most economic of systems for larger installations and can be contoured and moulded over existing mounds etc.

We have a choice of 7 standard colours –   Marigold (Auburn), Tan, Sage, Light Grey, Black, Forest Green and Terracotta Red.

Available in 3 different surface textures – Safebond, Flexibond and Permabond.

Safebond:   This is our most commonly used safety surface which has a non slip, porous surface. The texture is similar to small grains of rice which are polymerically bonded to produce a hardwearing all weather surface.

Flexibond:  Small granular chipped rubber pressed together to provide a  coarser surface and a slightly more porous surface than the Safebond for draining extra large volumes of surface water.

Permabond:  Small permanent colour synthetic EPDM rubber with the same properties as Flexibond, with a softer feel and more colour options.  Can be used for designs within the safebond matting as it is not an economical option for larger areas.
