The Benefits of a Rubber Paved Playground

What is Rubber Paving?

Inspired by Europe’s use of rubber paving for running tracks, North America adopted the practice, and gradually, people began using rubber paving for residential areas. Rubber paving is made with recycled tire rubber that allows for traction, surpassing concrete and asphalt in its durability test against water, ice, and snow.

With its elasticity and flexibility, rubber paving prevents cracking and other damages in cold and harsh weather. You can use a broom, rake, and shovel without damaging the rubber surface to maintain the exterior of your home. What’s more, it’s cost-efficient, since the rubber paving can be installed over your original surface; so, it’s significantly cheaper to use than other paving materials, such as concrete and brick.

Why Use Rubber Paving for Playgrounds

Children get hurt on the playground in all kinds of weather, even after you’ve told them to be careful. They enjoy pushing limits, whether it’s their own or those of their environment. You do everything you can to keep them safe, but on the playground, this isn’t always possible.

With rubber paving, however, their safety is guaranteed.

Courtesy of the Rubbertech Resurfacing experts, here’s why more playgrounds should use rubber paving:

  • It keeps your child safe from slipping and tripping.
  • It’s comparatively safer for children with prosthetic limbs.
  • It allows foreign objects to be seen.
  • It reduces injuries with shock absorption.
  • It won’t wear out or decompose.
  • It drains well.
  • It’s cooler than sand.
  • It doesn’t attract animals or insects.
  • It is environmentally friendly.

Children need playgrounds because they promote brain development and allow them to learn about the world in first-hand encounters. As a central hub for children, playgrounds enable them to be healthy by building up their cardiovascular endurance and muscle strength. With rubber paving, you won’t have to worry about your child’s safety as they run to the swings or jump off the monkey bars. And as an added convenience, you won’t need to empty the sand from your shoes ever again!
