PlaySmart UK is the best place to find professional safety surfacing solutions that last. Therefore, we are well-known for providing the highest quality playground flooring and soft surfaces for top-quality safe play.

Here are the top 5 Reasons our customers choose us for their playground surfacing projects.

1 – Innovation in Safety Surfacing Solutions

We are constantly striving to be on the cutting edge of Smart surfacing design. Therefore, our ethos is to bring state-of-the-art playground ideas to our product designs, material choices, and trade-marked installation process. We also offer a truly unique approach to surfacing in design, planning, and installation standards. Therefore we can ensure a long-lasting, seamless result for your play area.

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

Our products themselves also provide something special to the evolution of outdoor play flooring. We additionally search out new innovative uses of materials, design, and manufacture to provide the ideal space to play. 3 of our most popular and innovative safety surfacing solutions are:

  • EPDM MulchSmart– High-quality bonded virgin rubber mulch
  • Hybrid Grass– Durable, synthetic grass that works with real grass, therefore, this creates 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

We continue to innovate and provide the best solutions for all of our customers in multiple ways. 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‘ fully recycled rubber also creates surfaces without contaminants or aggregates. Additionally, they help to stabilise the ground underneath play equipment, protecting grass and maintaining soil composition. All of this while not abandoning our mission for safety. Therefore it provides unparalleled protection when paired with our SmartPlay shock pad underlay.

Corkeen surfaces use 90% cork from the industry leader in Green materials: Amorim. This material uses natural, non-toxic binders for a smooth finish and sturdy feel. Additionally, this cork flooring has a negative carbon balance. Therefore it is 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. This is because Cork naturally provides speedy water absorption, preventing puddling and flooding on your playground or pathways. Therefore, it can keep the site accessible and safe.
