Rubber Shred Play Information – Environmentally Friendly

Environmentally sustainable

As the rubber shred chippings are made from 100% recycled materials it’s also a very environmentally friendly option to use for a surface. The shredded rubber chippings are mixed on site into handy sized 10kg poly bags currently available in 6 colours.

The advantage of resin bound rubber shred is that a long lasting seamless finish can be achieved.

You don’t need to worry about the rubber being displaced like loose mulches. It makes more sense if you don’t want to be constantly sweeping up stray pieces of bark, play sand or the larger non resin bound rubber chippings. This is where the advantage of cost can be appreciated. No more buying extra loose bark, loose rubber or sand to keep constantly topping up the area. It’s a virtually maintenance free option for a surface.

Since the rubber is bound in resin it’s porous. That means the surface is SUDS compliant (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems). The water drains through like a sieve and flows naturally into the water table. It’s an Eco friendly option and SUDS compliance means you are helping reduce the risk of flooding, more so when used on projects that cover large areas.

The Environment Agency strongly encourages resin bound surfaces to help tackle the growing threat of flooding in many areas. This is why it’s especially ideal for parks, play areas and playgrounds.
