Rubber Mulch Play Surfacing

Billy Bounce rubber mulch safety surfacing’s made from recycled forklift truck tyres. The tyres are shredded to create rubber chippings, similar to the appearance of wood bark chippings.  The rubber chippings are then bonded together and laid in-situ, creating a seamless, porous, soft play surface.

Just like wetpour, our bonded rubber mulch can be installed in a variety of depths to absorb impact from falls.  These have been tested and certified to meet British Safety Standards.

One of the huge advantages of bonded rubber mulch is that it can be laid straight onto grass and without edging. With minimum preparation, it’s a cost-effective option for school and nursery play surfacing.  However, the durability and lifespan of bonded rubber mulch does not equal that of wet pour.

Rubber Mulch Colours

Our bonded rubber chippings can be installed in several colours per area to create unique patterns too suit area size and/or themes.  As the rubber is flexible, it’s easy to mould into shapes and contour around play equipment.  Use the arrows to scroll our colour pallet or click on the samples to enlargen.

Please note that the sample photos are for reference only and that colours laid may vary due to batch variation, supplier variation and environmental factors.

Features and Benefits of Rubber Mulch

  • Great alternative to wood bark – except it doesn’t lose its position, creating mess.
  • Cost effective as it can be installed almost anywhere in the playground
  • Ecologically sensitive by helping to reduce landfill and CO² emissions
  • Holds minimal water so that it can be used all year round
  • Vandal resistant – cannot be lifted or ignited
  • Virtually maintenance free
  • Impact absorbent, minimising playground injuries

Daily Mile Running Tracks

If your school is limited for space or running on grass during the daily mile, then you may want to consider our rubber mulch running tracks. By installing rubber mulch direct onto the grass, there’s minimal preparation. Its porous properties allow water to drain so puddles and mud don’t form, making it easier to participate in the daily mile throughout the year.

Another Happy School

“I would just like to say how delighted we are with our new playground, it was a pleasure to deal with your company. I must compliment the three guys that worked on site. Each day before they left,the work area was swept and left immaculate. Furthermore to avoid congestion at peak times in our car park, they arrived very early unloaded and removed their van. I would gladly recommend your company to anyone seeking your services.”
