What are Playground Rubber Tiles?

As the name suggests, playground tiles are designed for safe outdoor play. So, to provide a safe surface for children, the tiles feature maximum shock-absorption and non-slip properties. 

When you’re putting any surface outside, you need to consider how it will cope with the changing weather. Playground tiles combine a safe base for play with the ability to withstand the elements. 

Our Safety Playground Tiles are available in three fun colours as well as both 30mm and 40mm sizes. The tiles use a premium rubber with UV particles. This means that the tiles won’t fade in the sunlight and can deal with rain and winds as the seasons change. 

The ultra-durable tiles use an innovative yet straightforward installation process. Tiles come with dowels, so they slot together easily. The interlocking system is easy to install yet still provides ultimate stability. You can achieve complete stability with a simple installation process. On top of that, the tiles are easy to maintain and clean. 

5 Ways You Can Use Playground Rubber Tiles 

Although the tiles are primarily made to create a foundation for safe outdoor play, these qualities make them an excellent choice for multiple uses. You can craft a functional space that serves several purposes. Here are five ways you can use playground rubber tiles

Children’s Parks

Playground tiles create a fantastic surface for children’s parks. When you have children running, jumping, and potentially falling, you need non-slip and shock-absorbent flooring. As there tends to be a higher risk of slips and falls in children’s parks, it’s important to make the area as safe as possible. If you plan on using the tiles with climbing frames or something similar, you must check the thickness you need against the critical fall height. This helps you to choose the safest option possible.

Leisure Centres

Another way to use playground tiles is in leisure centres with outdoor sport and play areas. Often, with leisure centres, you need to have multifunctional spaces that can cater to different audiences and purposes. When the surface has enough traction for safe play, it’s usually got plenty of shock-absorbing and non-slip properties. This means it also doubles up as a great spot for outdoor fitness and children’s play areas.  

Back Garden Play Area


Rubber playground tiles are suitable for both commercial and personal use. If you’re looking to set up a play area in your back garden for the family, these tiles are an excellent choice. By using rubber tiles, you can create a safe zone for play, especially if you’re using any climbing frames or play equipment. Crafting a play zone in the garden also helps to keep any toys and play to a certain area which is useful when trying to organise your back garden. 

Outdoor Fitness Space

Playground tiles are ideal for creating an outdoor fitness space. If you’re looking to create an outdoor fitness space either at home or in a commercial setting, rubber tiles are perfect. Firstly, the premium rubber material can withstand all weather conditions and doesn’t fade in the sunshine.

Whenever choosing fitness flooring, it’s always important to match your needs and purpose to the surface. Rubber tiles are great for outdoor fitness. But if you’re planning on doing very heavy weight lifting or Olympic lifting, it’s a good idea to look for a heavy-duty tile like the 60mm Sprung Rubber Antishock Tile. For everyday fitness, the 30mm or 40mm playground tiles are more than enough.  

Patio Seating Area 

Finally, playground tiles are a suitable surface for an outdoor seating area. What’s great about using rubber tiles as a base is that you can use them for several purposes. Your patio seating area is often a place where family and friends sit together. This way, you can use the outdoor space for a combination of events, from hosting a family dinner to creating a children’s play area.
