Excellent Quality


“These tiles have made a huge difference to our outside play area at the nursery. Safe, good fun and the children love to chalk all over them, which is soon washed away with the rain, and all look clean again. Excellent purchase and would definitely recommend.”




Perfect Flooring


“More than happy, these tiles are just perfect for the grandchildren to play on in the garden. After a lot of research, I ordered these tiles, and I am so glad I did. Great quality, easy to lay, and I am sure they will last for the duration — would highly recommend.”

Great for Under Trampolines

“We had been searching high and low for a solution to putting a trampoline onto a paved garden but keeping it safe. We ordered these to go underneath, not just to stop it slipping and moving around, but also in case of falls. It’s worked brilliantly and is so easy to put down. Highly recommend it!!”

Playground Flooring FAQs



What is the best flooring for a children’s playground?
Rubber flooring, such as interlocking rubber tiles, is popular for outdoor play areas. It provides excellent shock absorption, reducing the risk of injuries from falls. Rubber flooring is also durable, weather-resistant, and relatively low-maintenance.


Artificial grass surfaces offer a natural look and feel while providing a soft and safe surface for children to play on, and it doesn't require mowing or watering.
What is the best rubber flooring thickness for a children's playground?
The best thickness of rubber flooring for a children's playground can vary depending on several factors, including the equipment’s height, the children’s age group, and the critical fall height (CFH) requirements. The critical fall height is the maximum height from which a child can fall without sustaining a serious injury. Here are some general guidelines for choosing the appropriate thickness of rubber flooring:


- Critical Fall Height (CFH) Requirements: Determine the CFH for your playground equipment. CFH is typically specified by safety regulations and guidelines. It's essential to select rubber flooring that meets or exceeds the CFH for the equipment in your playground.


-Age Group: Consider the age group of the children using the playground. Younger children may require thicker rubber flooring because they are more likely to stumble or fall from lower heights.


- Playground Equipment: Consider the height of the tallest equipment or structures in your playground. Ensure that the rubber flooring thickness is suitable for adequate impact absorption for falls from those heights.


- Use Zone: The use zone is the area under and around playground equipment where a child might fall. The thickness of rubber flooring should extend beyond the use zone to provide a safe landing surface.


- Additional Safety Features: Our rubber flooring tiles have built-in shock-absorbing properties, enhancing safety. These products provide adequate protection with a thinner surface.


We provide rubber playground tiles in various thicknesses, from 30mm to 126mm.
Are your products safe for children in terms of allergens and toxicity?
Our rubber flooring and artificial grass surfaces are non-toxic, allergen-free, and meet safety standards for children's play areas. They are also made of 100% recycled materials.
Can I install your rubber flooring products myself, or do I need professional installation?
Many of our products are designed for DIY installation, but if you need help with installation, get in touch, and we will provide you with our list of approved UK installers.
