Safe Playgrounds Flooring Specifications
This type of safety flooring or surfacing is found in many parts of the UK as it provides an impact attenuating and porous system that is made from recycled materials. Soft impact macadam rubberised flooring can often be called by other names such as bouncy rubber, soft pore surfacing, wetpour and soft tarmac and is made from a base rubber (SBR) which is mixed with a PU polyurethane binder.
The top recycled rubber crumb (EPDM) is also mixed with the binder and applied to the specified and designed area. The safety surfacing is constructed to different depths and it can protect to a critical fall height of up to 3.0m, depending on the play equipment and sub base. Different suitable sub bases include MOT Type 1 Stone, Asphalt, No Fines Concrete, Bitmac and Tar Macadam. The depths are set out by rospa and easifall might have slightly different depths required for the critical fall height so this is worth checking.
The soft impact macadam safety flooring is often found in parks, pathways, playgrounds and play equipment areas and can also be mixed to various standard colours and 50 – 50% colour flecks.
