A safe, low-maintenance and durable playground surface.

PLAYPOUR is a 2-layer, seamless system incorporating a resilient base for maximum shock absorption and wear-resistant top surface. It’s far safer than any loose-fill playground surface because PLAYPOUR rubber granules are bound together forming a permanent surface that doesn’t get pushed out of the way during play. Because PLAYPOUR is mixed and applied on site, incorporating logos, special designs, geometric shapes and game graphics into the surface are easy. The surface’s thickness can be altered during on-site installation to conform to different fall height requirements.

Product Data

PLAYPOUR playground surfacing meets 4’ to 12’ critical fall heights per ASTM F-1292-04, the industry’s standard test to evaluate a surfacing system’s ability to absorb shock.

In the interest of playground safety, the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) provides a Third Party Certification service by an independent laboratory. PLAYPOUR has received written validation that its playground surfacing conforms to the requirements of the standard. Check the IPEMA website (http://www.ipema.org) to confirm product certification, its thickness and critical height.

LEED® credits PLAYPOUR is eligible for LEED® credits. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™ represents the U.S. Green Building Council’s effort to provide a national standard for what constitutes a “green building.” PLAYPOUR can assist architects and designers in obtaining LEED certification.

ADA compliant PLAYPOUR is ADA compliant. When the PLAYPOUR system is installed, wheelchairs and crutches negotiate the playground without difficulty, thus conforming to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and ASTM F-1951-99 Determination of Playground Surface Accessibility.


Standard Solid Colors

Colors may vary slightly from samples shown.


Color Combinations

Any of the above 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 (standard pricing) and aliphatic (up-charge). It is never required to use aliphatic binder, but from an aesthetic standpoint particularly advisable to consider its use with colors such as blue, pearl, purple and gray because aromatic binder “yellows” slightly upon exposure to ultraviolet rays. This thin layer of urethane wears off with foot traffic and weathering typically within two to six months. Aliphatic binder comes with added cost, but added benefits, too: greater resistance to wear and tear from foot traffic and the elements; outstanding tensile strength; clear appearance makes the surface vibrant and the rubber true to color
