Rubber Grass Mats – Recycled Rubber Play Surface Mat

Rubber grass mats are one of our most popular products which are very commonly used on a wide range of projects including creating safe rubber play surfaces. Available in two thicknesses, 16mm and 23mm thick, both are effective when used but a specific grass mat may be needed for a certain application. This is the case for example, around larger play areas where the 23mm grass mat is required due to its fantastic 3.3 metre critical fall height as the 16mm grass mats have a critical fall height of 1.1 metre. Their popularity comes from their durability, versatility, critical fall heights and wheelchair friendliness which make them an ideal rubber play surface option. A grass mats primary purpose is to protect the root of grass and help revive damaged areas of turf return to their natural state, so if installed onto grass your rubber play surface will become almost invisible once the turf below has grown.
