We are constantly striving to be on the cutting edge of Smart surfacing design, bringing state-of-the-art playground ideas to our product designs, material choices, and trade-marked installation process. Offering a truly unique approach to safe play surfacing, PlaySmart’s design, planning, and installation team are specially trained in-house to exacting standards, ensuring a long-lasting, seamless result for your play area.

For our signature range of rubber grass mats, our trade-marked installation process goes above and beyond other playground companies to ensure extra safety. This process involves a reliable process of site surveying, measurement of critical fall heights, joining the mats with carefully trimmed cable ties, and laying them securely in an earth recess with fixing pegs to ensure minimal movement or subsidence over time.

Our products themselves also provide something special to the evolution of outdoor play flooring. Searching out new innovative uses of materials, design, and manufacture to provide the ideal space to play perfect for your space. 3 of our most popular and innovative surfacing options are:

  • EPDM MulchSmart– High-quality bonded virgin rubber mulch
  • Hybrid Grass– Durable, synthetic grass that works with real grass for a natural look
  • Corkeen– Sustainable cork surfacing with amazing water-absorbent properties

2 - Eco-Friendly Sustainable Flooring
“As an environmental organisation, I think that [FireSmart rubber matting] is also more carbon friendly given that there is no need for aggregates, concrete edging and transport associated with these items”
The Environment Trust

As we continue to innovate and provide the best solutions for all of our customers, we also keep sustainability at the forefront of our development.

For years, we have used recycled and natural materials wherever possible in our surfacing, particularly our rubber flooring solutions. EcoSmart grass mats are made of fully recycled rubber without contaminants or aggregates and help stabilise the ground underneath play equipment, protecting grass and maintaining soil composition. All of this while not abandoning our mission for safety, providing unparalleled protection when paired with our SmartPlay shock pad underlay.

Corkeen surfaces are made from 90% cork from the industry leader in Green materials: Amorim. Held together with natural, non-toxic binders for a smooth finish and sturdy feel, this cork flooring has a negative carbon balance, making it one of the best sustainable outdoor surfacing materials on the market. In addition to the eco-friendly materials, Corkeen is also Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) compliant. Cork naturally provides speedy water absorption, preventing puddling and flooding on your playground or pathways, and keeping the site accessible and safe.
