Recycled Rubber Chippings which have been created by shredding certain types of tyres to resemble traditional stone chippings. They are ideal for use in children’s play areas as they add a soft and springy protective layer helping cushion children when they fall.
PLAYSAFE Rubber Chippings are made from 100% recycled rubber products, which are then cleaned, shredded, made tyre-wire free to produce a highly durable and long lasting alternative to bark chippings.
Public & commercial areas are covered by the more detailed requirements of BS EN 1176 (relating to loose fill products). These require a greater depth of loose fill products when used in a public/commercial environment. In accordance with BS EN 1177 (2008) an additional 100mm of material should be included to allow for displacement when in use.
