Bounce Back Rubber Playground Mats

Greatmats Bounce Back Rubber Playground TilesBounce Back Rubber Playground Mats are available as 2x 2 ft. tiles, with various thickness options including 1.75-, 2.25-, 2.5-, 3.5- and 4-inch. These rubber playground tiles feature ASTM and IPEMA fall height ratings up to 10 ft. This mat surface option is popular, dependable and can be found in playgrounds across the country. It provides long-term rubber mat surfacing while offering ADA accessibility when used the ADA border ramp edging.

This product is a great option for west coast customers, and ships from the Pacific Northwest.

Unlike other surfacing options, such as wood chips or loose-fill sand or gravel, these tiles do not have to be continually raked to maintain a safe surface for your playground. The solid design of these playground surface tiles makes it impossible for foreign objects to hide. This provides a safer environment for children. Also, unlike poured-in-place rubber surfacing, you don’t have to replace your entire surface if some areas begin to wear down. You can simply replace that tile or group of tiles.

Safety

Greatmats Bounce Back Rubber Playground Tiles red and greenNo other playground surfacing material offers the degree of safety assurance that rubber tiles can provide. Wood and rubber mulch products are easily displaced, resulting in inadequate thickness/protection in large areas of the playground. They also present an undesirable and dangerous material that children can swallow, throw or kick. Poured-in-place products are subject to climatic variation during installation, which makes the durability and lifespan of the material unpredictable. Bounce Back Tiles eliminate these problems and offer the assurance of safe surfacing for children’s play areas.

Greatmats 2.5 Inch Bounce Back Playground Rubber TileBounce Back Playground Tiles are designed to meet federally-mandated Critical Fall Height requirements for playground equipment up to 10-feet tall. These rubber playground tiles have been certified to comply with these requirements by IPEMA through TUV/SUD, which is a third-party, independent testing/certification laboratory. Additionally, the manufacturer conducts regular, in-house Critical Fall Height testing as part of their Quality Control plan.

The fall height protection for each thickness measurement of bounce back rubber playground mats is:

  • 6 feet rating for 2.5-inch thickness
  • 8 feet rating for 3.5-inch thickness
  • 10 feet rating for 4-inch thickness

Color Options

Bounce Back tiles are available in two color options: EPDM and Color Topped. The first is a surface wear layer of colored EPDM rubber granules. With this option, you can choose from green, tan or blue colors.

A second color option is a surface layer of colored tire crumb rubber. This economical option includes Black, Red, Blue, Green and Brown. Tiles with these colors can used in combination to create very appealing playground designs.

Installation Ease

Greatmats Bounce Back Playground Rubber Tile installedBounce Back tiles can be easily and economically installed over a variety sub-surfaces. Once an installation sub-surface has been properly prepared, the tiles can usually be installed by the customer’s maintenance crew. This cannot be said of poured-in-place surfacing, which requires expensive contractors and specialized equipment to effectively install.

Maintenance Ease

Bounce Back Tiles are virtually maintenance free. Most cleaning simply involves a broom, garden hose or leaf blower. Replacing damaged tiles is as easy as removing the tile and installing a new one. This is not the case with other playground options which require costly and unattractive poured-in-place surface repairs.

Moisture Permeability

Greatmats Bounce Back Playground Rubber MatsBounce Back tiles are designed to allow rainwater to flow through the tile surface and away from the playground, as opposed to forming puddles on the surface. This allows children to resume play after bad weather sooner than they could on other surfaces such as poured-in-place.

Environmental

Bounce Back Playground Tiles are made from 100% recycled rubber and a specially-engineered polymer binder. Because of the high level of recycled material in each tile, these products meet and exceed the requirements set forth in U.S Executive Order 13101, Greening the Government, and they can be a contributing factor towards LEED Green Building certification.

American Made Quality

Bounce Back Playground Flooring

Bounce Back playground surfacing tiles provide a clean and safe play area for kids to play on.  They are perfect for playgrounds with swings, slides, and other equipment from which a child could fall.  Playground surfacing is available in many thicknesses up to 4 inches that provides a 10-foot fall height rating. 
Bounce Back cushions meet and exceed the requirements as established by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and American Standard for Testing Materials (ASTM) methods. Testing of this product is done on a regular basis to maintain the highest quality standards available.  Bounce Back tiles provide long-term safety, while offering ADA accessibility when used with our special ADA border ramp edging.
In the past, harmful objects such as broken glass have been found mixed into wood chips or loose filled products like sand or gravel.  Our playground tiles eliminate this risk.  The solid construction of playground surface tiles does not allow foreign objects a place to hide on the playground.  Also, solid rubber playground safety tiles stay in one place and maintain a consistent fall height rating.  This is better than loose fill where continual raking is necessary to keep the surfacing in place.
These playground surface tiles are a shock-absorbing, resilient rubber that will perform all year round and in all weather conditions for years.  They are designed for continuous usage even during the rainy season.  Water will not puddle on the surface of the tiles but moves quickly through the surface and laterally through the legs of the cushions.  This makes the playground area dry and ready to use quickly after even heavy rains.
This product features colorful EPDM mixed color options that will enhance the appearance of any playground surfacing.  Seven popular colors are available to make your playground look fantastic.  
These playground surface tiles are easy to install.  Please request installation instructions.  No daily maintenance is required to maintain safety standards.  This means lower costs and fewer hassles. It looks and performs great!  
Please note:  These tiles are specifically designed to lay on a flat, hard surface such as concrete or a base of crushed and compacted stone.  They are NOT designed to lay directly on top of dirt.  If you’re looking for a playground safety surface that can lie on dirt, we recommend our Kids Ergo Matta.
Bounce Back rubber playground tiles are Earth friendly.  Each 24″ x 24″ safety tile is made from scrap tires that would otherwise be buried in a landfill.  Bounce Back rubber can be recycled again and again.   These tiles are made in the USA.

Kids Kushion Playground Tiles

Times have changed since the days when monkey bars and slides were placed directly over concrete.  Broken bones and lawsuits have changed the way schools and parks deal with playgrounds.  These days, wood chips and rubber crumb is all the rage for outdoor playground flooring.  But are those safety precautions effective?
The short answer is, “no”.  Wood mulch and rubber crumb needs to maintain a certain depth to provide fall height safety for kids plummeting from the top of a slide or leaping from a swing.  Unfortunately, kids don’t recognize this necessity and wood chips get thrown.  Rubber crumb gets moved and shifted under swings and slides.  Usually, the places where the need is the greatest are the places where the safety measures fall shortest.
A better solution is outdoor playground tile.  Excellent rubber playground tiles for school playgrounds and parks, our Kids Kushion also works great on rooftops or anyplace you need protective surfacing, indoors or out.  You can even use Kids Kushion in your warehouse for its anti-fatigue properties.
Kid Kushion rubber playground tiles are 24″ x 24″ and designed to provide constant fall protection while allowing for drainage during inclement weather.  They don’t require raking or leveling to ensure that they maintain safe protection for the kids.
To determine which thickness of Kid Kushion playground tiles is suitable for your application, you first determine the “Fall Height” (drop height) of your play area.   This sounds more intimidating than it is.  If you have playground equipment, measure the height from the ground to the highest platform children stand on.  This distance is your Fall Height.  Once you have this information, you can select which Kids Kushion playground tile you need.
The 2.5″ thickness is used most frequently in indoor and outdoor settings. When installed over concrete or asphalt, it provides a drop height rating of 6 ft.   The 3.5″ thickness is needed for an 8 ft. drop-height over concrete and the 3.75″ thickness is required for a 10 ft. drop-height.
Kids Kushion come in black, blue, charcoal gray, burnt red, and bright green.  These four colors (and black) have been carefully selected through various durability and longevity tests.  All colored rubber will eventually fade.  These colors have been selected because they withstand the effects of UV sunshine the best.
The preferred sub-surface for a Kid Kushion surface is concrete or asphalt but it is ok to install these playground tiles directly on top of compacted dirt or crushed rock. You will need a stable, solid surface with some grade to allow heavy rainfall to drain from the surface area. You do not want water to puddle beneath the tiles for extended periods of time as dips will form over time and the overall appearance of the surface will not be as pleasing.
Because the Kid Kushion Playground Tile system provides a level and resilient surface, it also provides wheelchair accessibility.  It features an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Compliant Ramp (24″x 27″) that has a 1:12 slope.  This exceeds the ADA minimum 1:16 grade slope. Transition pieces (ramps) are available in various thicknesses along with corner pieces.
Please note: this material CANNOT be installed directly on top of dirt. It requires a flat, hard surface such as concrete, asphalt, or decking.  If you have dirt, a base of crushed stone that is compacted and leveled is required. Our only outdoor product for playgrounds that can be installed directly on grass and dirt is, Kids Ergo Matta.
