Rubber Mulch is a mixture of recycled shredded truck tyre rubber and a specially formulated high-performance polyurethane binder.
The shredded rubber is colour-coated in a factory process using a variety of colours. The overall effect is that it looks very much like a natural bark/wood chip surface, but the difference is that it’s bound together – so it won’t scuff out – and it will never rot away.
Rubber Mulch is very different from other rubberised play surfaces, not only in its appearance but also in the extent of preparation work that is required before it can be laid.
In order to achieve the best installation result we will require information and guidance from you about the area in which you would like to install Rubber Mulch Surfacing. Problems can arise where existing issues such as drainage are present as additional ground preparatory works may be required. You are required to debrief us on the performance of the area on topics such as drainage, subsidence, and if there are any known service lines running underground as we will be unable to fully assess all of these during our site visit.
Based on the information you provide us about the area for development, we will recommend, or create, a bespoke installation specification to ensure you get the best possible installation result, these must be agreed before the order and installation processes commence. Any additional works outside of the standard installation specifications shown below, such as for drainage, would be at an additional cost.
Below are our standard installation methods for Rubber Mulch where existing ground conditions are suitable.
