Standard painted solid colors (blue, gray, terra cotta, and green) can fade in the sunlight overtime like any rubber product however these colors are designed to provide the most attractive and durable outdoor painted tile surface available. The designer series Safe-Play tiles use a ¼” thick top surface of EPDM virgin rubber flecks to ensure the greatest life expectancy available.

  • Safe-Play outdoor rubber tiles typically ship within 3-5 business days for standard colors. For Larger jobs (>200 playground tiles), please call ahead to confirm lead times.

Safe-Play tiles are virtually maintenance free. If you do feel the need to clean the playground surface, normal recommended cleaning instructions include:
  • Sweeping or blowing off the rubber playground tiles to remove any loose crumbs, dirt, dust, sticks, leaves, or other debris from the surface when necessary.
  • If something wet or sticky is spilled on the tile surfaces such as drinks, ice cream, etc, it is best to clean up the area with a water hose or else damp cloth.
  • Occasional damp mopping of the playground rubber tiles with a mild soap and water solution and disinfecting of the tiles with a bleach and water or alcohol and water solution can be useful to help prevent the transmission of colds if kids are sick. A few recommended soaps are Dawn dish detergent or Tide laundry detergent.
Note: Do not use any solvent or oil style cleaners such as Pinesol, Lysol, Murphy’s Oil Soap, WD40, paint thinner, etc. since these types of cleaners will break down the outdoor playground rubber surface over time.
  • For 1" thick Safe Play tiles, dowels are used to connect adjacent tiles. We recommend purchasing 6 dowels per tile for a good estimate.

    Q:

    I'd like to install this on the floor of our garage, underneath some playground equipment to be hung from the rafters. When not in use, however, we'd still like to park the cars in there. Can this flooring handle the weight of a car?

    A:

    Our Safe-Play Tiles can handle the weight of a car. Since these are composed of rubber, oil from your vehicle can break down the flooring over time.

    Q:

    Can 2.5" thick Safe Play tiles be installed on level compact dirt. The play area would be surrounded by curbing but not adhered with glue to any under surface.

    A:

    Our Safe-Play tiles are recommended to be installed over Concrete, Asphalt and Wood sub surfaces. Since these tiles are porous, any heavy rain may cause the dirt underneath to become compromised and cause your flooring to buckle.

    Q:

    My backyard is grass and not concrete. What is the safest way to apply on grass?

    A:

    Our 1" Safe-Play Tiles are installed with dowels. Dowels are little pegs that hold the flooring together. Similar to the pegs used to put furniture together. Our 2.5" and 3.5" tiles are installed with glue. You would place the glue in between the tiles to hold the flooring together.

    Q:

    Can you tell me if the tiles are rated to ASTM F3012? If so are they able to protect against impact when the temperatures drop well below freezing? We live in Alaska and the children use to playground until it's -15.

    A:

    Our Safe Play Tiles are not rated ASTM F3012 because they are not loose-fill rubber. These tiles will protect against impact in below freezing temperatures.

    Q:

    Can these tiles be glued down to a concrete surface?

    A:

    Our Safe-Play Tiles can be glued to a concrete surface. We recommend using a Polyurethane adhesive for this.

    Q:

    We live in a part of California that reaches into the low 100 degrees frequently. I'm told when rubber matting bakes in the sun, they release something toxic, so we should get a cover/awning for to create shade. What are the risks of toxic chemicals with your product?

    A:

    Our Safe-Play Tiles are very safe and do not release any harmful or hazardous chemicals when in the sun. These tiles are made from recycled tires and are cleaned before made into flooring to get rid of any chemical residues. These tiles have been installed over the U.S. and we have had no issues with any of our installations coming back as hazardous.

    Q:

    Do these tiles get very hot in the sun?

    A:

    Our Safe-Play Tiles in direct sunlight can be hot to the touch but are cooler than concrete or asphalt. Black would be the hottest in the sun, with the other colors being much cooler. We recommend spraying water over the tiles during the day. Since these tiles are rubber, they are more slip resistant when wet, so they will still be safe for your children to play on.

    Q:

    Are these tiles suitable to be laid on concrete around an in-ground swimming pool?

    A:

    Our Safe-Play Tiles are very suitable for installation around an in-ground pool. These tiles when wet, are more slip resistant than concrete and are also mold and mildew resistant. Since these tiles are water permeable, water will not pool on top of the flooring ensuring a safe surface for children of all ages to play on.

    Q:

    How soft is it? Is surface smooth?

    A:

    Our Safe-Play Tiles are not soft; rather they have some spring in them to help deaden the impact of a fall. The top of our Safe-Play tiles are smooth and flat.

    Q:

    What is the average expected lifespan of these rubber tiles if they are being used outdoors?

    A:

    Our Safe-Play Tiles are made from high-quality rubber and can last for as long as you own the flooring. The warranty on these tiles is five years.

  Great for a Backyard Playground
Self-installed in Backyard
from Denver, CO wrote...
We bought a house a few years ago that already had a nice playground installed in the backyard. When our child was old enough to use it, we realized that the rubber chips used for the surface were difficult to keep clean with the leaves and pine needles falling on the playground, plus the chips were becoming substandard as the landscape fabric was starting to show below. So we needed to figure out a way to clean the chips, buy more chips, or replace the surface.

We decided to replace the chips with rubber tiles and are very happy with that decision. We used the 1" tiles since it was a fairly small playground set and used all black tiles. The area covered was a little over 300 square feet and we used about 84 tiles. Perhaps the hardest part of the project was just removing all the rubber chips and cleaning the site. Installing the tiles with the playground set in place already was simple as the tiles are easy to cut with a utility knife and they are easy to place around existing equipment, measuring with a 2-foot square ruler.

It took about 15 hours of work to install all the tiles over the course of two weekends, just doing it by myself. The dowels indeed were a little tricky to get all the tiles to match up well, but the slight grades in the surface also caused this. I think I got a good handle on installing the dowels after doing a few of them.

I've only had the tiles installed for about a week, but I can already tell this surface is much easier to clean than the previous rubber chips. The leaves and pine needles blow off easily with my electric sweeper/blower and it's also easy to wash everything off with the hose. Now the "scary" part of the playground in the corner, where it was most dirty and you didn't know what was growing/living back there, isn't scary anymore. The surface is very sturdy and comfortable. I like that it's much more even than the rubber chips and less likely to trip/slip on. Our 2-year old really seems to like it! And I look forward to getting many years of use out of the playground with these new tiles!

I bought the Safe-Play Rubber Tiles for an outdoor playground. I wanted to have an easy to maintain and safe area for a new playground in our backyard. The area was landscaped and countersunk 2.5" so the tiles would go flush up against a mow strip. It took about 2 days for 2 of us to lay the tiles out and the hardest part was cutting around the play structure. The end result looks great, we have had rave reviews from all the kids and parents that come over for play dates.

I bought the 1" tiles for a playground I am building in my yard - they arrived really quickly after I ordered them and in good condition. The assembly was difficult with the dowels and I was not able to get them to fit so that the tiles were flush with one another. The end product looks really good though and it worked out well enough. I might recommend getting the thicker tiles to eliminate the need for dowels and ease installation and layout
  Excellent product
Installed in child care center playground
from Texas wrote...
This flooring was installed in the outside baby area of our child care center. After we figured out the best way to install it the job went smoothly. We did use a little bit of Vaseline to help the pegs fit into the holes for attaching the tiles together. It all looks very nice and our little ones are very happy to be outside.
