Material of the Month: May 2016 – Recycled Tyre Ground Surface

Why it’s inspired us…

A bonded ground treatment made from recycled tyres, is used as safety flooring. When laid, the chips will not deteriorate or compact. The bonded chips can be cut to any size and be coloured depending on the required use.

Why we’d like it to inspire you…

With the month of may being an Emerald inspired month, what better a material than this emerald coloured recycled tyre ground surface. As we head closer to summer the playparks will be filling with hyperactive children running wild over the many obstacles and its quite possible they will fall. This material is very soft and should greatly reduce the risk of injury, giving plenty more days of fun before the days shorten.

Do you have any suggestions for another MATERIAL OF THE MONTH?
