Poured in Place Rubber

Poured in Place Rubber Playground Surfacing


PolyStar TumbleTurf poured in place rubber playground surfaces offer a certified, resilient safety surfacing system which provides a fun, clean, and attractive environment for playgrounds. PolyStar playground surfaces are made from non-toxic pigmented rubber primarily derived from recycled tires. The thick, soft, shock absorbing layer creates a cushioned surface that allows children to play safely.

The PolyStar TumbleTurf Rubber Playground System

Poured in Place Rubber Playground Surfacing

The PolyStar rubber playground surface is a two layer system customized to provide safety for various age groups and fall heights. The top "wear" layer is composed of colored virgin rubber mixed with our proprietary binder and troweled evenly over the shock absorbing base layer. The base layer is made of shredded recycled rubber from post-consumer tires in varying thicknesses determined by the critical fall height (CFH) of the playground equipment. A variety of brilliant colors are available to create beautiful patterns and designs in the rubber playground surface. Once cured, the rubber playground is non-toxic and environmentally inert. 

Rubber Playground Surface Installation 

USSA's experience with installing poured rubber playground surfaces spans over 15 years with over 500,000 SF of rubber surfacing material sold and installed since we began business in the late 90's. We have on call, trained and competent crews available across America who will ensure that the poured in place playground surface is properly installed.

Custom Playground Surface Designs

Artwork is a craft that USSA installers have refined and perfected over the years. Intricate images, designs, and color blends can be incorporated into the wear layer of the rubber surface to compliment the color and theme of playgrounds and parks. For specific purposes or design considerations, PolyStar poured in place rubber surfacing can be installed over slopes, mounds, and contours to create both a visual and sensual experience for the children and patrons of your park, school, or day care. Our installation crews are very capable of accomplishing any desired look or theme for our very particular clientel.
