IPEMA-Certified & ADA-Compliant

Surface America playground surfacing systems meet critical fall heights up to 13 feet per ASTM F-1292, which is the industry’s standard test to evaluate a surfacing system’s ability to absorb shock. They also conform to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and ASTM F-1951 Determination of Playground Surface Accessibility.

Poured-in-Place Surfacing

cottinwood-creek-395x296

Product Detail

RubberWet poured, two-layer, troweled-on-site system: base layer of SBR & urethane, top layer of EPDM & urethane. Surface America uses an industry-leading percentage of material in its top surface, significantly increasing the surface’s expected life.

Product Data

  • Field-applied in any configuration and dimensions
  • Wet poured, two layers, troweled on site
  • Base Layer: SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) and polyurethane; Top Layer: EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) rubber and polyurethane binder
  • Typical thickness range is 1-3/4″ to 5-1/2″
  • Many colors and color combinations
  • Porous: primarily outdoor use (indoor use less typical)
  • Base Options: concrete, asphalt, crushed stone     view
  • IPEMA certified: meets critical fall heights up to 13 feet per ASTM F-1292
  • ADA compliant per ASTM F-1951 for playground surface accessibility
  • Recycled material components sourced from the USA
  • 7-Year Warranty (Super-7 with aromatic urethane)
  • 10-Year Warranty (Extreme-10 with aliphatic urethane)

Colors / Finishes

Color(s) may vary slightly from samples shown.  To view color selection go here.

Rubber Colors: Any of these colors can be mixed in combination with another color or mixture of colors to achieve a blended, speckled look. A percentage of black mixed with a color or multiple colors camouflages dirt and reduces the price. All other factors being equal, the higher the percentage of black in the top surface mix, the lower the price.

Urethane Choices: Throughout the industry, the urethane binder that encapsulates the granules is produced in two forms: aromatic (our Super-7 system with a 7-year warranty) and aliphatic (our Extreme-10 system with a 10-year warranty). It is not required to use aliphatic binder, but from an aesthetic standpoint it is particularly advisable to consider its use with colors such as blue, teal, purple, pearl, eggshell and grays because aromatic binder “yellows” slightly upon exposure to ultraviolet rays. Most of this thin layer of urethane wears off with foot traffic and weathering typically within two to six months. This characteristic applies industry-wide. Extreme-10 (using aliphatic urethane) comes with added cost, but added benefits, too. Upgraded ingredients in the formulation lead to superior performance throughout the system’s life.

  • Greater resistance to wear and tear from foot traffic and the elements
  • Outstanding tensile strength
  • “Clear as water” appearance makes the surface vibrant and the rubber true to color
